Re: Smallville Season 11, it"s happening...

I use my Blu-Ray as a docking port for my MP3. It's hard to quit using the DVD player (also Sony).

Buy yeah, Amazon's great... You can get anything you need there.

Re: Smallville Season 11, it"s happening...

That's one minor criticism I would have about this series...it's so fast paced that it feels short! I absorb every single page...this is one of the reasons why I wish this had been done as a novel series as original planned, I think that would be a better format for the story, but still...like I said a minor nitpick.

It was originally planned as a novel? I hadn't heard that.Now I'm disapointed. Not that I have anything against comics, it's just that I prefer novels.

Oh well. maybe sometime in the future.

Well Batman's another two weeks away. I hope Brian Q does him justice. I'm confident he will.

Re: Smallville Season 11, it"s happening...

After reading what you guys have said, I'm considering breaking my only old stuff/Marvel next plan and getting the first few issues of this instead. I was a big fan of the show for the last few years, and the fact that they appear to have improved on the show has me really interested.

Re: Smallville Season 11, it"s happening...

It's well worth it...especially if you've watched the show in it's latter years, it's a direct continuation from the events of the series finale. It's not so much that Miller has "improved" anything...it's more like he's not doing any of the stupid frustrating stuff that Brian and Kelly wanted to do with the show. So far, this is "Smallville" at it's very best. This is the show that fans wanted it to be but never could quite get to. If that makes sense at all.

Re: Smallville Season 11, it"s happening...

It makes perfect sense. A show like Smallville is forced into a perpetual holding pattern. It had to set up the Superman mythos without ever quite getting to be Superman. Smallville had to set up and pay off storylines to work as a weekly series while never giving us the ultimate payoff, Superman.

Now that Smallville has concluded so has the artificially prolonged dramatic stagnation. We no longer have to suffer through the endless Clana teen angst horseplop and we're getting to the stuff we always wanted to see but were never going to get.

With Brian Q. Miller as the new showrunner I'm overjoyed to return to the Smallville universe week after week and look up in the sky...

Re: Smallville Season 11, it"s happening...

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!
