Pretty much.

I am glad Tom stepped up...he has been the real hero here...I personally didn't care if MR came back.

Re: SMALLVILLE Winter Hiatus Thread *Spoilers!*

I suspect the truth is a mixture of both accounts.

As disappointed as fans have been in the direction and execution
of the show, thats is probably equally true of the cast.

Both John Schneider and Annette O'Toole have made comments after they left about how unhappy they were with the writing of their characters. It took a long awhile for either to come back.

Re: SMALLVILLE Winter Hiatus Thread *Spoilers!*

The Smallville writing is horrible...the characters are all over the place and I really wish the show had ended in S7 after seeing how S8, S9 & S10 have turned out. I know we would have missed out on Tess...but she never had a chance anyway.

Tom does everything possible to make the show as good as possible? That's a massive unintended backhanded compliment.

Never mind that any argument a fanboy tries to make is lost when "real fans" is thrown out there.

Re: SMALLVILLE Winter Hiatus Thread *Spoilers!*

Miller and Gough did have a plan in place to end the show with season seven due to the strike but they got the strike resolved and came back with a shortened season. I recall I was pulling for the strike to be prolonged so we could see the series wrap up. I'm still curious to see what they had planned. The end would have tied into Veritas somehow.

Re: SMALLVILLE Winter Hiatus Thread *Spoilers!*

I can't hate Tom Welling anymore.

It was such a joy to... but then, he is an executive producer.

But it does mean that he thinks of Smallville as an artistic consideration rather than a cash cow. Hell by this point it would be a massive fit of self denial if he didn't think of that set as his "first" home.

Re: SMALLVILLE Winter Hiatus Thread *Spoilers!*

He's become too safe and familiar with his role. That's his problem. None of the writers want to challenge him as an actor any more, if they ever did.

Well Smallville will be over soon and then people won't have it to complain about.

Justin will return in "Dominion" the episode he's directing.

Also if anyone cares I've completed the bottom five of my top ten all time favorite Smallville episodes list.

ding ding ding.

If you wanted it to end at the 7th season you could've stopped watching.

Re: SMALLVILLE Winter Hiatus Thread *Spoilers!*

My comment was more for the people who don't watch the show and claim to hate it and complain about it because it is still on the air.

My earlier comment was me just thinking out loud a bit after what Donald Draper said...I still enjoy the show and watch every week...I just don't think the past 3 seasons have been all that great...IMO.

If I wanted to stop watching...I would...I don't need you to tell me what to do.

Re: SMALLVILLE Winter Hiatus Thread *Spoilers!*

Not to mention that bitching and complaining about Smallville is the thing that binds and brings us together

Re: SMALLVILLE Winter Hiatus Thread *Spoilers!*

AY,
We got 5/6 eps to go if you count the finale as 2 separate eps...I think I have a list of my favorites ready...I don't see "Kent" or "Dominion" making it on the list but "Booster" or "Prophecy" might. I am hoping both parts of the "Finale" are good.

Yeah I'm holding out for "Booster" (Geoff Johns and Sebastian Spence give me hope) and "Prophecy" once we get concluded this U bull crap.

Re: SMALLVILLE Winter Hiatus Thread *Spoilers!*

But if Booster is so good that it validates everything which came before, then it will dissolve the bonds which hold us together.

We'll all wander off and lead useful productive meaningful lives.

Meh.
