This is what we do now, y’all. Ten years of trainwreck, with one really good actor playing the world’s gayest Lex Luthor.
One expert in Lex Luthor, one comic book reader, and one casual who watched the Donner movies one time: together they embark on a quest to sit through the WB’s ten-season smash hit–the show without which we wouldn’t have Supernatural OR Man of Steel. Buckle up, and if you’re ever in doubt, just remember that Lex is always wrong. Literally always.
