At least we're getting the John Williams score.


I have to admit, I'm geeking out a bit over here.
The last few minutes were good, with taking place in the "future" with Lex becoming President, Lois and Clark casually flirting, Perry White and his "Great Casar's Ghost!", the Williams theme and Clark doing the shirt-pull.

I really did get some chills.

Well, I did like that final reveal. I could have lived with everything else but I wish they had spent more time on the actual threat.

It seems a shame that the whole business with Lex was apparently just to adjust Smallville to the status quo comic continuity.

Re: Smallville10x21&22 "Finale" Discuss/Grade

hrm, i'll have to take my time and form my thoughts into a post

overall, i guess we got our moment, but i was wanting just a bit more to defeat Darseid and Apokolips

it all came together in about 10 minutes there at the end, 2 hours wasted /shrug

Yeah, don't quite get that part. Rest was fine, and Jimmy was a nice touch, but they had already been at the church 7 years ago, no reason to stall that part...

That really did not need to be two hours long. They could have cut out almost all of the first hour and not lost anything of value.

I rate it excellent, because it finished exactly with what I wrote I wanted around 5 seasons ago, the suit and the John Williams score.

It's been a long ride getting here, but I'm glad I saw it through.

Well outside of Rosey that was ....about like the last ten years. Fairly lame and without a payoff. What a coward that he wouldnt be seen in the suit in full at any point close up. Good luck Tom and good bye.

I guess maybe they felt waiting would be better, to help develop the Clark persona.

Dude should have just sucked it up and put the thing on. After ten years of this, he's going to be remembered for it whether he wore the suit or not.

The Bad

- Not a great two hours. Too much talk and wheel-spinning.

- I'm disappointed that we didn't get to see Welling in the suit.

- Darkseid defeated with a double fly-in punch.

- Lex's memory wipe = 10 years wasted.

- Apokalips pushed out of the way and everything's okay.

- The wedding is put off and they still aren't married after seven years?

The Good

- We saw Jimmy played by Aaron Ashmore. Nice touch.

- At least we heard Perry White.

- Loved the music.

- Clark ripping off his shirt didn't make up for the lack of Superman, but it was a good moment.
