For the past three weeks I have been watching the first four seasons of smallville. Smallville has made me a superman fan. Before smallville I would have considered myself a Batman person. (Sorry comicbook guy I love the campy TV classic too.)
I especially love what they have done with Lex Luthor. Rather than being pure evil, they have made a conflicted character almost like a Darth Vader. Lex is brilliant. This also helps explain why Superman doesn’t just lock Lex Luthor up and throw away the key. After all, if Lex is part good then there is hope.
It took me a while to get used to Lana Lang. She seems so empty. I think its partly the way the actor portrays her. On second glance though she really does a fine job. I think shes the sort of person I would be really suspicous of because she keeps so much hidden.
Clark is a great generally rural american boy. I think he plays the role perfectly. They have taken the secret identity to another level though. Always suddenly dissappearing and showing up in a nick of time; in real life somebody would figure it out. I guess thats just one of his unmentioned abilities.
Bo (I’ll always know him as Bo.) was a great choice for Johnathan Kent. Talk about perfect for representing the rural American dad. Too bad it was a temporary job from the start.
I love Chloe. Yea I know she’s hot but they all are. I’m going to miss her. Do you think she’ll make it through season 6? I still want her to be supergirl in a spinoff series.
Lois has done a good job to. Interesting that they chose a bonde. I like it.
Of course while they are in highschool, its like they all dropped out and came back because they act like they are 20. I feel much better about watching the sexy scenes knowing that they aren't really in highschool. Lois looks like she's 27 so she must have some other story.
Ideas? What do Superman fans think of smallville?
