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

That whole Kryptonite suit was the worst idea in the show. Aside form just being plan silly, it needlessly brought Kreuk back--and the whole way it was handled, I can't help but wonder if Durance took offense behind the scenes.

On top of all that, it's existence was one huge plot hole in the whole Kandorian arch and just comes across as a stupid oversight.

The thing I hated about that storyline was that it fucked up the flow of the burgeoning Lois/Clark romance and worse...

It raised some ugly implications about Clois. It suggested that Clark was settling for Lois because he couldn't have Lana. I really resented the writers and producers for that.

If Brian Q can do ONE thing that would really make me happy that thing would be Clark honestly CHOOSING Lois over Lana. The only way to do that would be to bring Lana back one last time and have Clark make clear that he wouldn't her back even if he could.

That's what I as a fan really want. Once a shipper always a shipper.

Man, I'm glad that I'm not the only one who saw things that way! It was like they were steering the show much closer into Superman territory, then suddenly out of the blue (well, sort of), here's Lana and Clark's like 'Lois Who?'

It was pathetic, really. Almost as bad as the abysmal final battle between Clark and Doomsday, which lasted like, what? 30 seconds of screen time?

I can't forgive them for THAT.

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

I'm the only one who forgives them for the Clark/Doomsday fight. In my mind the season wasn't building towards a showdown with Clark and Doomsday. It was building to an emotional confrontation between Chloe, Jimmy and Davis Bloom and the resolution of their fractured love triangle. I was honestly satisfied with the way it turned out.

I am of course the only one.

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

Someone brought up Kryptonite Woman? WHAT? Brian and Kelly writing unnecessary things at the expense of current plot development? WHAT?

I got why they wrote the Doomsday/Clark fight the way they did. That simply though wasn't what fans were expecting or what Brian and Kelly had promised us (ooooh shock) that we were in store for. Frankly they were the Berman and Braga of "Smallville"!!! Yeah...I went there

No. The first storyline just concluded on Friday. The digital edition at least. I think it concludes in print in August.

That's fine, Berman and Braga gave us All Good Things and Star Trek: First Contact. Love those guys. I guess that makes Brian Q. Miller the Ronald D. Moore of Smallville.

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

As mentioned nothing is in trade yet. We don't know if there will be trades for the print versions released at this point I don't think. Issue #4 of the print versions was just released today. Issue #5 which advertised "Detective" is slated for next month (Rao...we're creeping up to September already!), but I've read nothing about trade offerings.

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

Yep should be awesome...and AJK...just for clarification I was comparing Brian and Kelly (they talked way too much lol) to Berman and Braga on the basis of all their talking and promises, and not really fulfilling those promises to the fans I like the comparison of Miller to Moore though I know we differ on Brian and Kelly but ugh. My problem stems from them talking the hell too much and not really concentrating on quality writing. Anyway can't wait for "Detective".

Fair enough. I wasn't aware of all the empty promises. I never watched Smallville on a weekly basis anyway. I always waited for the season to end and then bought the season sets. I'm impatient that way.

Seems we're on hiatus again after the conclusion of the Guardian story line.
