Review #2491: Smallville 10.19: “Dominion”

Posted on the 02 May 2011 by Entil2001 @criticalmyth

Most of the episode was devoted to setting up a situation where Clark and Oliver could execute the “Smallville” version of “Spartacus: Blood and Sand”. It was a blatant ripoff as well, right down to the slow-motion shots in the middle of the fight in the “arena” and the spraying blood (as much as CW would allow, I imagine). This is the third time that the writers have cribbed from other pop culture films or shows in the past several episodes, and it justifies bringing the series to a close.
