Smallville 6x02 "Sneeze"

Smallville 6x02 "Sneeze"
Okay, so I'm watching this a week late, and yeah, it's the first episode with Ollie Queen, but that's not what I'm here to talk about. And Clark discovers "super-breath", but that's not it either.

At time index 38:33 we get a close up of the remote for Lex's security system. Does it look familiar? It should...note the peculiar symbol underneath its screen?
That's the Global Frequency symbol!
And this is the phone that was designed for the Global Frequency pilot which the goddamned WB didn't pick up, awesome as it was. And now they have the chutzpah to reuse the central prop from a show they couldn't be bothered to give a chance to in a completely different context? What absolute wankers!

Now that I'm good and pissed off (as a friend always told me, it's better to be pissed off than pissed on), why the hell are they making Oliver Queen a quasi-villain?

Goddamn WB (CW)!!!

Still, the sequence at the end, where Ollie is shooting arrows from his rooftop deck, and says "how about...Borneo", and then fires an arrow into the Daily Planet globe, is one of the best final moments from any Smallville episode in a very, very, long time.
