If they do a tenth season, will they finally run out of single-word episode titles? I mean, what's left? "Lethargy"? "Addiction"? "Puppies"?

As long as it does not surpass 213 episodes (so SG-1 can keep its record), then I do not care.

I hate to break it to you, but if Smallville gets 22 episodes this season and (presumably) next season, and ended after that, it would finish with 218 episodes.

Lies.




If so then The Ark Of Truth and Continuum will be counted as 4 episodes. That way they will be tied.

Also I should add that the title was tongue in cheek...

Oops. I think I missed that.

If they'd kept Lana around and extended Clark's mooning over her for another season, they'd have lost me.

Somehow i've always thought Stargate Sg-1 and Smallville had something in common besides being filmed in Vancouver.

This is the show that doesn't end, yes it goes on and on my friend!
Some people started watching it not caring what it was, but they'll continue watching it
forever just because

This isn't really new news I'm afraid. Back when they were talking about a ninth season they announced that they had plans for a tenth and that they were trying to get Welling to sign on the dotted line for it as well. He did.

Actually one of the few who did not to sign for a tenth season, so far, is Allison Mack.
Good for her

Re: The Show that Never Will End that Fans want to End (Smallville)

I don't think you can compare Smallville to Doctor Who...they're constructed very different and about totally different things. We all know as Superman fans that eventually Clark Kent becomes Superman...my point really has always been you can only tell so many stories of Clark before Superman until you start running out of things to do or start becoming repetitive. Smallville has been great at telling "event" or mythology stories but then we get the fillers or episodes that fall flat for whatever reason. It becomes frustrating. Clark is like what 22 or 23 right now? They're attempting to mature the characters and the show...and the fact that it's called Smallville, they barely go to Smallville any more they should have changed the name to Metropolis five seasons ago. Clark assuming the identity of the Blur is all well and good but is not the same as him being Superman. Prolonging the inevitable so you can milk the series as long as possible is...bothersome at best.

Now that gave me an idea. Have Clark regenerate at the series finale. It could be Brandon Routh

That would solve the issue of Lois not knowing Clark before Superman.
