    Hug

    Hug

    This week Tom Welling and Michael Rosenbaum revisit an episode of Smallville that nobody quite understands the meaning of its title… Hug. The guys breakdown stellar performances from guest stars Rick Peters and Gregory Sporleder, talk about shooting in harsh Vancouver winters, and discuss embracing the awkwardness of kissing scenes with friends on set. Tom highlights the metaphor and correlation between the friendship fallout of Kyle and Bob and the parallels we’ll see later on with Clark and Lex. Michael talks about what it was like to shoot Lex’s first time going ‘super villain mode’ and trying to take out Clark.

    Shimmer

    Shimmer

    This week Tom Welling and Michael Rosenbaum explore if all in Shimmer is gold, as they revisit Episode #10 of Smallville! While the scores at the end might not reflect it, the guys fondly remember shooting scenes with Kelly Brook as Victoria Hardwick and talk about their favorite and least favorite locations to shoot at, as the iconic ‘barn sunset’ makes several appearances. Michael talks about working again with former co star Azura Skye and similarities in this week’s storyline to his real life. Tom talks about how you could see them still ‘figuring it out’ with the invisibility special effects this early on in the series and how we start to see the rise of convenient concussions in the show. Let us know what you’d rate this one!

    Rogue

    Tom Welling and Michael Rosenbaum revisit Episode 9 of Smallville: Rogue! The guys discuss the first break from the ‘Freak of the Week’ concept and get some insights from Al and how this was a defining test that would go on to shape the series.

Michael shares fond memories working alongside Kelly Brook on and off set and teases a few upcoming guests in the works. Fun episode with some great scenes with Jonathan, Chloe, and the one and only… Principal Kwan.

    Jitters with Smallville Creators Al Gough and Miles Millar

    Jitters with Smallville Creators Al Gough and Miles Millar

    Smallville creators Al Gough and Miles Millar join Tom Welling and Michael Rosenbaum as they revisit Jitters, one of the most epic episodes from Season 1 (featuring Candymam himself Tony Todd) sharing the absolute chaos that went on behind the scenes to put this episode together. Al and Miles talk about landing Tony Todd, why going over budget almost cost them their jobs, and the crazy reasons that more than four different directors were involved in its making. We also talk about the wire work in the final collapsing bridge scene, John Glover transitioning from a guest star, and a defense for the Freak of the Week template.

    Finally… we’ve arrived at the Amy Adams one! This week Tom Welling and Michael Rosenbaum revisit Episode #7: Craving. The guys give huge props to Amy’s commitment in her performance, talk about what it was like working with her on set, and also discuss the delicate nature of shooting an episode that highlights eating disorders through the high school experience. We get into the mysterious nursery explosion scene, Clark awkwardly piecing everything together, and the origins of Lex’s evil ulterior motives.

Talkville Review

Talkville is a fantastic rewatch podcast! Series stars Welling and Rosenbaum provide fascinating insight into the making of Smallville. With weekly co-host Ryan, Rosenbaum and Welling dedicate each week to watching episodes in their entirety, discussing their thoughts on the episode from their own viewing perspectives as well as revealing details about the acting, writing, directing, and special effects that went into the show. The podcast format is conversational, the discussion flows easily and they do a great job balancing humor with sincerity. 20 years after Smallville first premiered feels like a perfect time to embark on this journey, I am grateful to Welling, Rosenbaum, and all involved in making the podcast.
