Tonight’s Smallville series finale perhaps was the most enjoyable series finale I have witnessed. That’s not saying much. Conclusions: Smallville Series finale > than the movie Superman Returns, and I think there needs to be a debate but I still believe that Erica Durance has to be the best Lois Lane ever.
There were a lot of religious images throughout. I think that the writers played a lot with Clark Kent being sort of a Parable of the Prodigal Son times deux (Jor-el and Jonathan Kent) with Clark being the Prodigal, with perhaps Lex being sort of the eldest son type figure, wanting to be perfect, always outshone by Clark’s deeds.
Joel saw much of the same End Times/ Last Days themes that I did:

Blogger James Bradford Pate has a similar relationship to SMALLVILLE as myself.
Today is the day of the very last Smallville episode—after a remarkable ten-year run. Although I have been dissatisfied with the last four seasons, I still want to pay homage to the series, for it has been a comfort to me for the past three years, as I have watched all of the seasons. I promised to discuss my fifteen favorite episodes, and here they are. It was a tough choice! And I’ll confess that I cheated a few times by talking about a few episodes that are not among my top fifteen!

Tonight marks the Smallville TV Series finale. I have a few mixed feelings here. As an original fan, who abandoned the show when it became shoddy in Season 3 then, I became a fan again seasons 5-7, then I gave up again, and for this last season, I am back in. I can’t really call myself a faithful fan, but so much was going on, and I could only do so much having class on Thursday nights during seminary. This season, the writing has been inconsistent, and there have been many What In The World were they thinking moments (ahem, the bachelor party episode, I couldn’t tell if it was a tribute to The Hangover or the worst impression ever).
Booster Gold, written by Chad’s favorite writer, Geoff Johns, was one of the better episodes in a while.
Don’t get me wrong, I am excited about getting to see Clark finally fly (YOu can do it, Peter, you can do it!– ala HOOK), but I am also feeling some sadness because this series will be last comic book adaptation for a while, now that Wonder Woman failed, and Raven failed (thank goodness).
Is there any hope for the hopeless, the dedicated comic book fanatics?
