If Miller had been showrunner this series would have reached its potential.

I definitely can see that. It's a shame really, that he couldn't have taken over the show's direction in, say, Season 5. It's one of those roads not taken, but it would've been interesting to see how differently the show might've turned out.

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

Pro, Season 5? Surely you jest. Smallville jumped off the tracks and straight into Loonytown in Season 4.

How much time did they waste on that Lana witch storyline and did it ever really go anywhere? It was clearly tacked on to the season to give Kristen something to do but they never found a way for it to pay off.

What did it have to do with quest for the Fortress of Solitude? That was clearly what the season wanted to be about?

What about Jane Seymour and Jensen Ackles' characters? The show didn't justify their existence until they introduced the whole Traveler mythos to the backstory. Up until then Seymour and Ackles' characters were completely pointless.

The only good thing about Season 4 was bringing in Erica. Everything else was a damn waste.

But imagine if Bryan Q had been writing it...

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

Damn, you're right - I forgot how bad Season 4 really was!



Shit, it's actually a shame that BQM didn't just write the show from the very beginning. Who knows, if he had, I think that the story would've progressed towards real Superman territory a LOT sooner than it did.

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

Well to be fair, Miller wasn't a full time staff writer until season eight. He started on the series in season five as an unpaid intern and worked his way up. I believe when "Smallville" finally concluded, he was an Executive Story Editor. It was also through "Smallville" that he met Geoff Johns which is how he got his current gig in DC Comics. So the man has risen through the ranks to get where he is now.

"Argo" started today. Haven't had a chance to read it yet, but will give my thoughts tomorrow.

Edit: I had time to read it tonight...and loved it. The Lois and Clark shower scenes were fun. Lois had something from Ferris Air (looked like a cheque, but don't think it was, I assume she gets this from her adventures with Lana). A nice surprise cameo from Blue Beetle, and Micheal's stolen Legion ring calls back the user, he attempts to find out what it means from Clark, and they get both pulled back to the future...discovering a crumbling Metropolis....while poor Skeets gets left behind. This keeps getting better and better.

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

It was a good ish. All setup. The innuendo on the Lois/Clark show scene was great. For a second I thought I got lucky and the book was taking a turn for the porno. It didn't turn out that way but it was a thrilling three seconds.

The Booster/Beetle stuff was alright. I haven't seen the episodes they appeared in for a while so I had a hard time recalling their Smallville history. The cliffhanger with Clark and Booster in a post-apocalyptic future was really kewl but... It implies that Earth survives the Crisis which bums me out some. Gimme some doubt even though there is none. That's not really a complaint though. I have the same issue with mainstream DC too. You just know the world isn't going to end because of the Legion's future history.

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

Both are retainer by Ted Kord as was mentioned in the episode. Also Bryan Q has stated/implied that the Legion stuff will be touching on Geoff Johns/Greg Ruka/James Robinson's "New Krypton" storyline and of course the July solicits teased the return of Doomsday whom I assume has since resumed his path of destruction some point in the future.

Also we don't know if this factors into the Crisis or not. Since the Legion is involved now, no doubt there will be timey wimey things going on and Brainy will no doubt mention the Crisis Perhaps this is a Crisis of sorts for the Legion? LONG LIVE THE LEGION!

You mean we don't get a view of Lois' silicon-enhanced ta-tas?

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

The last two issues of Argo have been fantastic...this is already shaping up to be my favourite arc of the series so far. In part three of Argo Miller basically has taken Geoff Johns New Krypton story line and the Superman and Legion of Superheroes arc (where the Legion plucks Clark into the 31st century to help them fight Earth-Man) and ties it all in with the Zod stuff from season nine and does so brilliantly! It deals with Earth as a xenophobe planet attempting to purge itself from alien influence. Earth-Man himself is used (Kirk Neidrich). I mean this couldn't be any more brilliant...especially if you're a fan of all of these stories used from their source material. Bryan and Kelly would have frankly found a way to butcher this stuff...oh and they gave Brainiac 5 his costume as well! He is now Brainy in fact! All of this tied into Smallville's past seasons just again brilliant (I can't stop using this word). This comic brings me so much joy lol.

Let's see if Miller is brave enough to bring in some of the crazier Legionnaires like Bouncing Boy or Matter Eater Lad.
