...with zombie Lionel, magic memory erasing blood, and no clear shot of the hero in the suit other than a lame chest rip.

The clearest shot of the hero is an image from a comic book shown in the book-end scene with Chloe. Other than that, it's a CGI character with Welling head sometimes superimposed.

10 years in and they stilled ripped the fans off.  Grin

I'm not sure I agree, but for opposite reasons.

The series spent a decade trying to establish a young love and soapish take on Superman, and at the end, it forces homages to the Donner Superman style.

It's over now?

Wow, ten seasons and I avoided watching all but two episodes, and those way back in Season 1 and neither all the way through.  This has to rank as my most-ignored version of media Superman ever, and it doesn't sound like I missed much.

What I want to know is what the "Superman Homepage" is going to do for content now that twice-daily "Smallville" posts are no longer an option.

Smallville is at heart, a hit and miss show, not a masterpiece but not a terrible show either, still would rather watch this than Superman Returns quite frankly and Micheal Rosenbaum is a better live action Lex than Kevin Spacey or even Gene Hackman.

Also, I like this scene

I watched the first two seasons, maybe three (can't remember) and I think you did miss something.

It was young and fresh and energetic, and it was about Superman.

I thought it was really good. When I was watching it, I liked the portrayals of Pa Kent and Lex Luthor in particular. These guys were great! At that time, if I remember rightly, there was still a building sense of tragedy that the Lex-Clark friendship was going wrong, and I was fascinated. Very watchable.

It's a truism that the second season of any show is probably the best, and it's in decline through the third... Anything good after that is a bonus but don't expect much.

Nightwing, one day get out the first two seasons on DVD. Maybe the first three.

If by "get out," you mean check them out of the library, maybe so, when I'm done with everything else I want to see.

My wife got into the show in the first couple seasons because she was up late at night with two babies in a row and it came on about 1 AM here.  In truth, part of the reason I never got hooked is doubtless because the show was so inaccessible to me; we don't have cable and had no Warner affiliate, so we were stuck with re-runs on an NBC station in the wee hours.  Considering it looked like a cross between "Dawson's Creek" and "the X-Files" (or more concisely, like a rip-off of "Roswell"), I didn't feel too motivated to make the effort.

I agree, except I would say the first 4 seasons were really good, season 5 was okay but it was around 6 when things started to go wrong but things started to get back on track at season 9 and season 10 was a satisfying if not so spectacular conclusion. Erica Durance started was a great Lois Lane, Michael Rosenbaum was in my opinion the best live action Lex Luthor.

Although I glad a Superman related show is the longest running superhero show ever, I can't help but think of how much the show could've ended on a much better note if it just ran for 5 or 6 seasons as originally planned before CW network decided to extend it after seeing how popular it was compared to the rest of its programings.
