I worship at the television altar
Smallville, why do you hate the character I love?

We're hearing rumblings that S9 is going to be a dark one, especially for Clark, and that evidently the darkness will be of his own making. Yes, Clark, you screwed up again, and you must be punished. *headdesk* My own personal rage over what they're doing to Clark (AGAIN) aside, who in the world would want to watch THAT? This is Superman, not Batman. He's a symbol of hope to the world, not despair. And hello? He's the HERO of the story! Can't his journey be a source of inspiration and joy, rather than a depressing lesson in how he's doing it wrong? Maybe I'm being way too pessimistic, but I have a bad feeling about this.


Those writers and producers are greedy (besides being mediocre) They want more and more SV seasons and at what cost? At the cost of hurting and damaging one of the most beloved characters ever! They are totally unable to find a creative way to prolong the telling of the journey, so they resort to their same worn-out, repetitive, uninspired, shabby and pitiful writing devices. If no one comes to Clark's rescue I'm afraid that writers' room they now control is most probably going to concoct another terrible and damaging storyline for Clark. My expectations for a good season 9 are definitely shattered. As a Clark fan, I couldn't be angrier or more disappointed.

Thank you for this post. I wish there were a way we could make those producers (and the CW) know how we feel. Though I doubt that they would care at all.

You've articulated my worst fears perfectly, Carol. I'd like to believe that somehow Tom will speak up for Clark, but I have no idea if he has either the power or the inclination to do so. It's so discouraging. This season has been such a roller coaster ride.
