Aquaman pops up in land-locked Kansas? Guess he'll be living in a lake or something?

So which Aquaman do we get? The manly Aquaman

Or the gay Aquaman?


I am hoping for the hook hand Aquaman.

IMO, "Superfriends" cartoon Aquaman -- with or without seahorse -- is the ONLY Aquaman

This pic looks like metrosexual Aquaman not a gay Aquaman.
You think people will actually turn in and think this episode has the group "Aqua" in it?

IMO, "Superfriends" cartoon Aquaman -- with or without seahorse -- is the ONLY Aquaman.
I thought that too until I saw the pictures of tonight's Aquaman.

aquaman makes out to be an idiot who says "bro" and "dude" too much. his scenes were actually tolerable minus the flirting with lois.

WTF Why is metro Aquaman wearing a tummy shirt

Hook hand, Jesus looking Aquaman kicks ass!!

Ohhh i can't wait to see Lois in a bikini!!! Down boy, down.

Doesn't look like we are going to see Lana in a bikini, but I guess a bathing suit will work, ugh.... Why Kristin why....body doubles now this.

Can't wait till 8:00

Maybe i'm not paying enough attention, did Lex give Clark a key or something? Clark walks in on him a hell of a lot for two people who hate each other.

That is all I remember about the show - I think I need a pic or two to remind me.

I liked this ep. Liked the bro that played Aquaman. Could've lightened up on the use of "bro" a little.

Guess i'll be the lone dissenter and say that while I could appreciate Lois in a bikini, she really does need some meat on her bones though. Being able to count her ribs was kinda...ugh. Don't know if it was me or not, but Lex seemed a lot more outwardly evil in this ep. I liked it. Shame they didn't handle the eventual turning better..

Not a bad episode, except for the casting and portrayal of Aquaman/Arthur Curry. The actor who played him was horrendously bad - a total cliche of what someone 'thinks' a surfer sounds like, and for that matter, why play up the surfing aspect of it anyway - the guy's a swimmer. Do swimmer's talk that way, too? Don't think so. Also, for someone from Florida, it sounded much more like it was Texas, to me. And what's up with wearing the same outfit for the ENTIRE episode? Ok, he did change from a tank top to a t-shirt for his final scene, but still. Oh, and could he possibly have shown off that stupid toothy smile just a wee bit less. This was even worse than the way they handled The Falsh's appearence. Lame, lame, lame. I understand they want to revamp these characters for thier (the shows) vision, but sometimes, it feels like they're playing down to more of a junior audience than actually watches the show.

The rest of the show was decent, though. Glad to see James Marsters (aka Proffessor Milton Fine) get some reel screen time. Think he's going to be a fine addtion to the guest stars this season. Liked all the geeky in jokes, too ("JLA", AC's color scheme (at least the first time it was mentioned), and the last few lines of the show). Oh, and always good to see Lois back.

The episode was enjoyable, but I was disappointed that they TOTALLY ignored Clark's explanation about his resurrection from the previous episode. It's like that event never took place. That's annoying. What could he have possibly said to explain that to Lana (plus why after he was resurrected he had holes in his shirt and black marks on his skin)? That episode had a great ending (better though when I thought he showed himself to Lana becuase he was going to reveal the truth to her), but it seems the writers dug themselves yet another hole to bury a problem in so they can act as if it never happened. I really hope they come back to this issue soon.

Lex was great as usual. Oh, and Lois was smoking hot in the bikini.

Ok here's the proverbial "This thread is worthless without pics of Erica Durance in a bikini" post

I read that the dude who played Aquaman was a former contestant on American Idol, so that might explain his lack of acting skills.
