I really don't know why they pushed so hard for Welling to sign up if they're just going to like you said crap all over the character and why would Tom sign up for that? Dude seems like the only one that actually gets the character. I don't know if I'm going to be able to take this any more. You know I'm convinced that all the people who work on this show really don't want a show about someone who will become Superman they want some other show but got saddled with it. I also think that the writers/whatever on this show think by making they're characters unlikeable they're doing something really cool. If I wanted unlikeable characters I'd watch fucking Rescue Me or the goddamn Sopranos. Sorry if you like these shows but I don't I cannot watch shows where I hate the main character another reason I could never get into The Shield. I really hope it isn't as bad as it seems.

He's the HERO of the story! Can't his journey be a source of inspiration and joy

I would say let's send like a million letters to the showrunners saying this but I doubt it would work. God! I'm pissed right now man.

EXACTLY. I wonder if they gave Tom an outline of next season before he signed, or if that wasn't even a factor in the negotiations. I don't want to believe it was all a matter a money, but maybe I'm just being incredibly naive. Probably, I live in a fantasy world anyway. :)

But seriously, why did they want another season? Do they honestly find creative fulfillment in tearing down such a beloved character? I just don't get it.

Maybe we're both naive but for some reason Tom doesn't give me that impression you know. I'm hoping it's not as bad as what we're expecting but I think my optimism has officially run out.

agreed. I hope Welling really starts using his influence (like his pex/muscles) to get them to treat Clark better than they have been for next season. He deserves so much more than he's given. Poor Clarkie... *hugs*

Hey I am with you, if you want to make a campaign I will so help write some letters!

If I thought it would help I would say let's go for it. *sigh*
