When someone in the Heroes threads states that Heroes had a "Smallville moment," do you take that as a compliment?
No, because it's usually me saying it, as anyone who has read my comments on the recent development with Peter would know.
I don't hold Smallville up to a particularly high standard. I can see it for what it is, a cheap Canadian made show made primarily for teenage girls. It wouldn't be much different to any other show for teenage girls if it wasn't for the fact that it's about Superman.
I hold Heroes and Battlestar Galactica up to a much, much higher standard, so when Heroes does something I would criticise Smallville for doing then I think less of them.
