I like Smallville most of the time, i like the buildups but hate that the buildups lead to more downtime. Suddenly we were introduced to phantoms that clark must get rid of so he can start his training....they make it look like hes about to start his training and then Jon Jones tells him hes not ready....um wtf was the point of jor el causing him all these problems for years for if hes NOT READY??
I liked the love interest crap for the first couple of seasons but when they started becoming priority rather than the main story lines then it felt like we wasted our time watching, then it felt like they knew how we felt so they setup another buildup then set us up for another downtime. It's ok to have a couple filler episodes with love, side story, and villain of the week, as LONG as you make it pay off with another episode or 2 atleast with non stop action.
This is long right? lol
The season finale felt like it was shot as a dream , i dunno if they did it on purpose but it felt like it couldn't possibly be happening....and i bet thats how they'll start the next season "Jor El wisks clark to normal reality:" just like they did in apocolypse.
That or Lex accidentally summons doomsday to the planet to kill clark using the device . A fight ensues that lasts 2 minutes until Jorel can stop it, then we go into slow filler mode for 5 episodes until Jon Jones helps kara escape the phantom zone and tells Clark where to find Doomsday ....Oh and then the new cast member for Superboy saves everyones ass while clark sits on his thumbs bitching about how bad the world is.
Atleast supernatural didn't let me down for a finale.
Let me tell you what a season finale needs to be!
A buildup of events that take place as a result of most of the things you see in the season. Many characters change for the good or for bad. A big fight that lasts 3 to 5 minutes atleast , a dialogue between the good guy and bad guy trying to work their magic on each other. And an ending that either leaves us fulfilled or extremely insane to see what happens next.
The only time I've wanted to see what happens next on this show is when clarks dad gets powers to take him on, and that episode where Zod has taken over the world. Even though they were a letdown, they were done just right at the beginning. I also hate how everyone goes back to normal life like a world changing event didn't happen. That's serious lack of imagination and writing ability.
