Thanks for this story! Since the fact that Tom thought of directing already in S1 is new to me, I must have missed that interview so far. Anyway, I am impressed with his ambition: just having started acting and already wanting to be in command! lol

But I am not surprised: I was always impressed back then when it was mentioned time and again in the early season DVD commentaries that "this (scene or angle) was Tom´s idea". I´m really proud of him, as though he were my own kid. lol And that he charms everyone who meets him to pieces helps too!

Tom's S1 directing ambitions were news to me, too, that was fascinating to read. And I thought it was interesting that he chose to watch and learn until the show approached him about directing (I wonder if Beeman was behind that); although I wish he would do more work outside of Smallville, I appreciate that he so carefully considers his career moves. Judging by the success he's enjoying now, he knows exactly what he's doing.

I love those little tidbits we get about how Tom's ideas are incorporated into the show. Most of the time they turn out to be one of my favorite parts of the episode! How I wish we could hear Tom himself talk about his creative process, especially on any of the episodes he has directed. Maybe he'll finally break down and do a commentary as the executive producer of the Hellcats pilot, when it comes out on DVD. :)
