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

I think they demonstrated their reluctance to let Clark learn and grow in the way they handled Lana's return to the show. Or perhaps what they revealed was their inability to understand the complexities of this character who captivates me so completely. They are not worthy to tell his story.

I cut this show a lot of slack, often to the point of insulting my own intelligence, because all I really ask of it is a momentary escape from the drudgeries of my life. But when I read stuff like that TVG blurb, I just want to smack someone. I think all the writers (not to mention the showrunners!) should have to pass a Superman trivia test before they're even given a shot at this show. If you don't understand the endgame, how can you possibly figure out how to get there? And they should have to love the guy. At least as much as I do!

Of course I agree with everything you say, and I appreciate your articulate response. If only the writers cared half as much as we do. But I'll join you in knocking on wood for Clark. This show has given me many happy surprises along with the aggravating ones, and I cling to the hope that they will do so again.
