i have watched every episode of smallville since it aired all those many seasons ago. i was there when clark almost fried his school because of a hot teacher, all the way up untill lana is brain dead. i have sat and watched as pete left and characters like LOis and jimmy planted there feet into the thread that is smallville. but i belive that it is finally time to see the show set sail for new waters.hes out of school, theres no actual threat. now i do agree that they could do more with the show. the actual superman didnt start wearing the "suit" until he was 30, but with the two basic writers gone and lex becoming a GUEST character. i belive that the big guys at WB should pull out before you lose alot of already falling popularity.
now let me clarify. i am in no way dissing smallville.but its time to face the facts. eather change the name or give up
