The Smallville Swan Song
After ten years Smallville will be coming to an end this May. The retelling of Clark Kent growing up as a teen in Smallville, Kansas, has survived a network change, cast changes, a move to Friday night and despite all that has kept on soaring for ten seasons. You have to give it up to this show. All the incarnations of superman on television in the past never came close to the longevity that Smallville has had. I will go as far to say the creators of Smallville got the feel of the superman myth better than some other big time directors like Bryan Singer. Some fan boys may disagree with me but sorry it’s my blog and I’ll write what I feel. All good things must come to an end though. The last episodes of Smallville will start on Friday, April 15th leading up to the two-hour series finale on May 13th. Expect some fan favorites from the past to show up like John Schneider reprising his role as Mr. Kent and the big return of Michael Rosenbaum as the one time friend but now mortal enemy, Lex Luther. I expect that Smallville will pull out all the stops over the next couple of weeks so if you’re a fan I suggest you tune in for all action. Lets all just hope we see Clark put on that famous red and blue suit and fly away into the air.
