Smallville

We talked a little bit last week about my favorite moments from the 10th season of Smallville. This week, I'm going to talk a little bit about my thoughts on how the show ended. I still have to say that I was sad to see the series end. Ten seasons is a long run by today's standards for a show, but when it's a good story-line, you really aren't ever ready for it to end. With Superman and Lois Lane, there are so many story-line possiblilities that I wasn't sure where they were going to leave things. I am not a comic book fan personally, and haven't ever read one completely, so my entire knowledge base of the Superman story-line before this show was solely based on the movies.

As I said previously, it wasn't until the last episode when we finally saw Clark learn how to fly under his own powers. That was good, but I wish it had come earlier in the series and been more developed. If I could've had influence on the writing team, I probably would have had it centered more on his relationship with Lois, and how his love for her and his conscious choice to use his powers for good and not evil were the most powerful influences on his abilities to fly on his own. Overall though, it didn't spoil the series for me, and my knowledge and preferences aren't based on the story from the comic, so perhaps they made the decisions they made for reasons that I am unaware of.

"I have been hired by Warner Bros WBWord division to raise awareness for 'Smallville.'" The Smallville 10th Season DVD is now available for purchase, as is Smallville The Complete Series.

I loved this series and was really sad to see it end. I really think they could have done so much more if the series hadn't ended.
