Instead of Smallville...

What if they made a show on the Luthor family that explores the rise of Lex Luthor? Maybe Lana can be a part of the show as the woman destined to be the future Mrs. Luthor.

Um...no. No Lana & Lex. I wouldn't watch.

[edit] I'd watch a Luthor show with Cassidy Freeman as LuTESSa Luthor & Lana.

How about making a TV series with one of the 150,000 different super heroes besides (the boring) Superman?

What if Cassidy Freeman was playing a less dooey version of Lana?

Re: Instead of Smallville...

I think your idea would need a new cast all characters...I just think go in the direction of a corporate drama with some comic book elements mixed in. I just don't like Lex & Lana together at all no matter who plays them.

After last night I can see a Blue Beetle show working with Booster gold.

That sounds like a ratings failure.

That's what Smallville was about.

Lex is a good villain, but I don't know I'd be interested in him enough to watch a show focused on him.

I think Smallville pretty much covered that. Maybe not the way I would have but they did do it.

That'd be great if Superman wasen't the greatest superhero ever and was boring, but he is and he's not.

Re: Instead of Smallville...

Y'know I've been having this "Superman is boring" conversation with my young nephews and my son (ages 12-15)

Just because the character of Superman actually has character and won't kill, maim, humiliate, stomp on and destroy villains.

We got into this discussion about how Wolverine is cool with his "knife hands" and will "kill you, man".

Of course I didn't bring up how Supes could use heat vision and melt Wolvie "knives" then toss him into the sun if he were so inclined to... but

Why are kids so bloodthirsty nowadays! When I was a kid (in the seventies) most everyone wanted to don a towel around their necks and pretend to be Superman.

I guess times change...not always for the better though!

BTW..Smallville has been a fun show for TEN YEARS! Cut it some slack, jeez! You haters will get your wish in just a couple of weeks and it will all be over!

For my list:

Live Action
1. The Adventures of Superman (got all the dvds)
2. Smallville
3. Batman (got all the pirated dvd's)
4. Wonder Woman (oooohh Lynda Carter and my puberty!)
5. The Flash (John Wesley Shipp was cool!)
6. The Tick (HI-Larious!!)

Animation
1. Batman TAS (Mark Hamil and Kevin Conroy! Nuff Said)
2. Justice League\JLU (Awesome Stuff! Beginning to end!)
3. Superman TAS (This was just so well done)
4. Batman Beyond (well it was kinda based on a comic book)
5. X-Men (very faithful adaptation of comics!)
6. The Tick (HI-Larious!)
Marvel has been owning the films lately BUT DC has the animated films down! (Own all those dvd's too!)

Re: Instead of Smallville...

I'm so pissed that The WB.com went and pulled The Flash show. About a month ago I started the pilot and only got so far as the accident that gave him his powers before I had to quit, for some reason I can't rememeber. I finally remembered to go back to it a couple weeks ago and the damn thing was gone.

I have to admit, I'm kinda shocked at the amount Smallville hate around here, I thought most people liked it.

They do have it on DVD. Netflix it!

You think this is bad? Go check out a Smallville watch and discuss thread. The Smallville fans really hate it in there.
