Hey, That's My Cape! – Mixed SMALLVILLE Finale Emotions

I admit, I wasn’t a Smallville fan from the beginning. I didn’t even follow along for the first few seasons. It wasn’t until the last few years — post-Lex, actually — that I started watching more frequently. But there was no way I was going to miss the finale that promised the flights and tights we had been denied for so long with Clark. And well, in the end, the Smallville finale made me happy, mad and a little sad. Spoilers, of course, are on the way.

When it came to Smallville, I usually tuned in when I knew another superhero was going to be a guest-star. Just to see what the creators would do with him or her. For some reason, this version of Clark just didn’t do it for me. I like my superheroes to be in the thick of things already, not learning how to fly as it were. And plus, let’s face it, even the most die-hard Smallville fans can admit the show was downright goofy at times. Remember when Tori Spelling showed up? Actually, let’s not even go there. Though I wasn’t a fanatic about Smallville, the finale definitely brought out some strong feelings in me.

my thoughts exactly. For their next small-screen en devour, I think a story of Dick Grayson as Robin. I think if would even work with him being in costume, and it would tell a story of Batman as well (Batman before the costume would never work.) But with that being said, I don't know what the end game would be for a show about Robin.

I was a post Lex watcher and guest appearance follower as well. I watched more for Erica Durance who made Lois awesome. The finale was kinda lackluster. I mean the fight in the Supergirl Movie that just came out a few months back, oops, sorry Superman/Batman Apocalypse, was a better Darksied battle. Green Arrow and Supergirl were always more interesting to me in this show. Welling never was really a good Superman for me either. It ended OK, but had its ups and downs. I did like the use of the movie score at the end.
