My thing was never about the structure or premise of the show, it was always about the quality of the writing. As I've stated countless times in other related threads, Miller was one of their better writers...and it's obvious that he still has a passion for the characters since he's captured the actors voices so well in his writing.
I always felt that Brian and Kelly were pandering to certain fan groups too much and didn't concentrate enough on the actual writing of the show...which IMO hurt it. Miller seems to understand what we all want to see from these characters and this reality but also cares about the quality of writing as well. Whew. Smallville rant over
Haven't done one of those in a while!
