[TV] Smallville 3.8

Lex, about to be chemically lobotomised by his reluctant father ... good.
The implication that the series will eventually portray Lex's evil as a by-product of mental illness rather than a choice ... bad.
The smaller details and much of the execution of this episode ... kind of lame.
But on the other hand, having a storyline based off the characters' own histories rather than a "Monster of the Week" is extremely satisfying.

Just one small part of why Smallville is a frustrating show. Later, lets vent about its genre and why it's bad for Clark Kent to be the centre of the universe.
