Smallville Season 10 Thoughts

If it were up to me, this is how it would go;

A 22-episode Superman movie.

Yes. Like that. Start with the cape and tights in the first episode. Pull no punches.

Maybe bring back Millar and Gough with the stated objective of making Christopher Nolan weep with envy.

Back up a dumptruck full of money to Michael Rosenbaum's house to get him to shave his head and give us back the best live-action Lex Luthor of all (sorry Mr. Spacey).
Make it a 22 hour sweeping epic that's everything Superman should be with the effects and drama that Smallville has shown it can actually do when they are really trying.

I know that's not going to happen.

But it's nice to think about it.

Therein lay the success of Smallville Season 10. The program is not so much about superheroes as it is about the interrelationship between characters. Yes, there are a number of heroes and villains who make appearances throughout the program. Yes, there are a number of action sequences and over the top plotlines that pomprise the series. In the end, however, the success of the program centers on how it humanizes its characters and provides them with sense of depth not seen in hero programming before.
