I'm sure there have probably been more than a few threads with regards to Smallville, but I felt I had to start my own. Right now, this is my favorite show on Television, neck & neck with Family Guy & Simpsons. I've always been a big superman-geek. I've got figures, posters, comics, toys... you name it... I've also always loved the Superman character, and I know a lot of the mythos & story. I've gotta say how impressed I am with this show. The one-liners and forshadowing snuck in by the writers is simply classic. They really seem to have done their homework, and know the characters well. Sure, there's a bit of "revamping" going on to shine it up for the younger generation, but each of the characters are definately assuming their own individualities. I'm especially impressed with the relationship between Lex & Clark. Poignant & Sad, given that the two of them eventually end up to be the worst of enemies (or rather, Lex & Clark's alter ego). I can't help but smile every time the writers sneek in a gem like the one in the subject line (spoken by Lex Luthor to Clark Kent, in episode #11). This show is miles above "Lois & Clark" insofar as quality, story, character, acting, mood, atmosphere, etc. The only suggestion I have is to rely less on some of the meteor'ish superfreek episodes, and develop some of the more human aspects of the story. I heard some rumors about future storylines that have me drooling. Just had to publicly voice my appreciation for this show. Here's hoping that WB doesn't pull a FOX and ditch it. Moe.
