In this week’s ball-operating episode, Magnus continues his kind of affectionate look back at the dreaded fourt season of Smallville.

This is the *DREADED* season 4. That’s the bad news. The good news is the episodes discussed in this show, namely Gone, Facade, Devoted, Run and Transference, are actually really solid. In fact, you could reasonably argue that the dreaded fourth season’s positive reputation comes almost entirely from these episodes. If you subtract Gone, Facade, Devoted, Run and Transference from this dreaded season, you’re left with a hot mess.

When people speak in positive terms about this dreaded season, mostly these are the shows they mention. The absence of most subsequent episodes is rather telling, isn’t it?

Because of that, there won’t be as much moral outrage as there was in the first episode of the dreaded season 4 retrospective nor will there be the mandatory alcohol-induced catharsis caused by subsequent episodes.

Gone, Facade, Devoted, Run and Transference exist in their own unique bubble, a calm before the storm, that period in the fourth season’s run when all mostly seemed to be on the up and up.

Needless to say, fans had no idea what lay in store.

But that’s the future! In the here and now, Gone, Facade, Devoted, Run and Transference are a fun batch of episodes and your wise leader has mostly positive things to say about them.

For those determined to ruin the Internet for everyone else by perpetuating click-bait on Facebook, “Your brain will melt listening to Magnus tie Facade to Devoted in one easy step!”

Due to the avalanche of ass-kickery, unfortunately there was just no time for listener feedback this week.

However, there has been a fair amount of feedback (and feed-forward!) in recent episodes so this subject hasn’t been entirely ignored.

Patience! The vast backlog of feedback will be addressed in due time. Fear not!

In the meantime, though, don’t let the lack of feedback this time get you down! You can still offer your feeble effort at tribute! You humble serfs are always welcome to kiss your benevolent leader’s ring. Corrupt DiManzocorp interns are ready, willing, able and eager to accept your bribe to present your meager missives to your wise emperor. The email address to use is trentusmagnus@gmail.com as the other seems to be having technical problems.

In an another sublime act of truly unprecedented charity, your emperor permits you lowly rabble to suggest topics for a future episode. Thus, petitions may be sent to trentusmagnus@gmail.com for DiManzocorp interns to review, whereupon your leader might consider thinking about the possibility of potentially discussing whatever you have in mind some day. And that’s a promise!
