I worship at the television altar
New Smallville trailer!
I love that they're promoting S10 as "The Final Season" (I have chills), but after watching this, it's actually beginning to sink in that Smallville is ending. I guess I've been in denial. I know it's time, it feels absolutely right to go out this way, but still, I'm sad. And super pumped about S10! :)

Smallville "Takes Off":

I think I'm also in denial, but sometimes I think about this being the final season, and though I'm "super pumped" as well, I start getting a teensy bit teary eyed. I know I'm going to be a mess in the a) premiere and the b) finale. Probably inconsolably so. I didn't "grow up" with Smallville with way I did with Buffy and then Angel, but after 6 years of watching, it's become such a huge part of my life. And with me being the overall Superman geek that I am, Smallville has helped strengthen an already huge love I have for the character(s) in this mythology. I need to stop talking about this before I get too emotional.

I have never felt about another TV show the way I do about Smallville; it has become a huge part of my life. Seeing the DP globe, that flash of cape, and the words "Smallville: The Final Season," it just hit me that this really is the end. As much as I love the show, I wasn't prepared to feel this emotional about it. I'll be sobbing my way through the finale for sure.

I am super pumped about this season too. I'm sad that it's ending but I'm also glad to see some of the things I've long wished for to happen. Um, like flying. ;)

I agree! I just hope they don't make us wait until the very end for all those iconic moments.

Okay, seriously... I know it's recycled footage, but those last few frames, of the Daily Planet globe, with Superman's red cape blurring past ... Chills. Up and down my spine. Goosebumps on my arms. Full body shiver. I'm so excited for this season, I don't have words.

I feel the same way. I truly think it's going to be EPIC, and I know Tom will rock every moment. I can't wait to see the show unleashed, no longer held back by the need to stretch it out for one more season.

I know what you mean. I don't want to think about it!

This trailer is a great start. I hope they continue, and that we see some viewers who have left the show behind come back for these final episodes.

I can't even go there right now.

*hugs* At least we know now, instead of finding out at the end of the season. We can savor every remaining episode, and anticipate the satisfaction of seeing the ending we deserve, and for which we've waited so long.

It's a strange feeling. I'm happy the show is ending because i think it's time, and am delighted at them no longer having to invent ways to stall the journey. And yet, what on earth will I do without my weekly Smallville fix. For all its flaws - and in many ways because of those flaws, which open up so opportunities for meta and fix-it fic - its become one of the staples of my entertainment life. I dread to think of losing touch with all my flisties!

I worry most about losing touch with my fandom friends, who are some of the most important people in my life, in spite of the fact that we've never met face-to-face. I'll miss the show desperately, but I do think it's time for Clark to become the man he's meant to be, and I'll have a decade of DVDs to watch for all time. And I'll mourn the absence of Tom from my TV screen, but I look forward to seeing him go on to bigger and better things, hopefully on the big screen.

In any case, I plan to make the most of the time we have left!

I'm definitely emotionally attached to Smallville more than any other show. Even though I feel it's time to give SV the ending it deserves, I can't imagine at this point not having it around anymore. All the friends I've made with this show, the spoilers, the discussions it's become apart of the everyday norm in my life. I'm attached to the characters and the ending will be quite compelling and touching. I think I'll be tearing up all season long just thinking about it all coming to an end.

Smallville has become such a big part of my life, in a way I never imagined was possible. It's strange to think about how my life will be different when it's over, so I probably won't. :) I'm staying in my happy Smallville bubble just as long as I can. Of course, for me, the show begins and ends with Tom, so that part will go on, and I can't wait to see what lies ahead for him.

Chills, I have them.

They did good. I hope it's just the first of many.

Thanks so much for saying that, I do worry about spamming everyone. I'm glad you're enjoying the one-stop Smallville shopping. ;)

The CW really came through on that trailer, I hope they keep it up! I'm interested to see if the ratings will go up in this final season, if people who have stopped watching the show will tune back in to see Clark in the home stretch.

I would kill for an EW spread on Smallville or on Tom alone, one with a proper photo shoot. I'd love to see Tony Duran reunite with Tom, for example.

Is it September YET? ;)
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: August 4th, 2010 02:07 am (UTC) (Link)
I KNOW! :) How are we going to get through the next eight weeks?

Can you believe we might actually get a view of Clark this season to rival your wonderful manips?

Oh that would be awesome! :)

I wish he were going to play Supes on the big screen, but if we can't have that, I hope they give us at least a glimpse of him as the hero we've been waiting all these years for him to become. But whatever happens, suit or no suit, Tom will always be MY Superman.
