Even though I had some problems with the "Finale"...mainly with the whole Darkseid story which was dumb for them to attempt anyway after "Failsday"...over all I was pleased. Sad to see Tess die, great seeing Aaron Ashmore as Jimmy...the Lex stuff was good. The first hour was slow but it wasn't too bad...as far as CGI Superman? It was more than I was expecting and feared I didn't have a problem with it. Hearing the Superman theme music was awesome!
By the way..."A network like CW" doesn't have a vast budget.
