Well i think it's the Next show to go . I gave it a chance since I really like Smallville but they have'nt captured lightening twice. I think te main problem is that despite some wild circumstances Smallville plays it straight. It mines Drama from it's plot and enhances and builds the Superman Mythos. BOP is just relying on way too much of the Camp factor, and Perhaps it's because it's trying to be a Superhero show and be tongueincheek. Maybe it's just hard to take relatively Minor Characters and build a story around them. Maybe it's because they throw the Batman Mythos at you as a reason to watch the show but then basically ignore the world that mythos inhabits. Smallville Enjoys the Myth and it also has a stronger Cast.
