Yes! Thank you for writing this post. You said this all much better than I ever could.

TPTB really have crapped on all of the characters at one time or another and I don't think there's any excuse. I'm not a writer, but there has to be a way to write conflict and character development without turning your characters into a bunch of idiots who contradict themselves and never learn from their mistakes and who do things that make absolutely no sense.

Like you said, I don't think any character has been able to avoid this fate at one time or another. Except maybe for Shelby! :-) Wait! I'm wrong! They gave him a freakin' sex change!!!

Here's a couple more off the top of my head examples:

Lana- had her jump from guy to guy without too much pausing in between. She was making eyes at Clark while she was still with Whitney and Jason's body was barely even cold before she got back together with Clark.

Lois- technically never graduated high school and was kicked out of college yet scored a job at the DP. If they really wanted an excuse for Lois to come back to Smallville, couldn't she have gotten kicked out of Met U, but then enrolled at CKU?

Speaking of college, Clark dropped out too, yet was hired at the DP as well. That's a big bone of contention for a lot of people.

Those are the only ones I can think of right now in addition to the examples you already gave.

LOL! You're right! *is outraged on Shelby's behalf*

I am so loving the responses to this post. It's wonderfully cathartic to read all these passionate replies, and to know this touches a nerve with other people. That's the thing about Smallville fans: we can always bond over how crazy the show makes us! ;)
