NewsFlash: Smallville news

You know, I've been going back and forth about Smallville for a couple of years now. The elimination of my two favorite characters, Lex and Lionel Luthor (Michael Rosenbaum and John Glover) took all the juice out of the show for me. I've kept watching, but I just didn't want to write about it any more. And I was sort of relieved when it was announced that season ten would be Smallville's last. The story has been dragging on when it should have been wrapped up in a cape a couple of years ago.

My point? Well, the last few announcements about season ten guest stars (James Marsters, John Schneider, Laura Vandervoort, Michael Shanks) have made me think the final season might be going big. And now we've gotten nearly the best casting news possible: John Glover will be returning, too. And not just for a one-shot – for "multiple episodes."

The only thing that could make me happier than John Glover's return is if Michael Rosenbaum would relent and come back, too. Lex's struggle with darkness was the reason I got into Smallville in the first place. Come on, Lex. Couldn't you take just one more curtain call?

All these returns make me think I might review the final season of Smallville after all. What do you think?


  1. Please do review it! i feel weird if i watch something and dont read a review on here after

  2. What a lovely comment, Stephen. Thank you so much.

  3. Have to agree with what Stephen said, Billie. Even when I’ve not being watching the show (effectively seasons 4, 6 & 7) I’ve always enjoyed reading your reviews.

    Being a massive comic fan I’m really excited for this final season, not just for all the old favourites returning but also for all the new characters being introduced (Booster Gold and Blue Beetle, the Suicide Squad, frakkin’ Darkseid!).

    The icing on the cake would be if you gave us another season of great reviews one last time.

  4. Well, as they say - Once you have reached this point, there is not point in turning back.

    I think that lately this show is watchable and is a nice way to pass the time.

  5. I second (or third) what Stephen wrote.

    (except that I sometimes read your reviews before I watch the episode)
