So, I’ve been a fan of the TV show Smallville for a while now. My interest started around season 4, which led me and my (then) roommates to devour the previous seasons on DVD and then wait in anticipation for the next season to be released. I like Superman and I thought the series was a clever take on it and it really was genuinely entertaining television.

My fandom is waning but I continue to watch for the sake of completing the show’s storyline. I’ve just started watching season 9 (yeah, I know, that’s a whole lot of show) and after three episodes in, I still have no idea what the heck is going on. The story is becoming convoluted and just ridiculous. I hope it gets better, I really do.

What I did notice in this latest episode I watched is Smallville‘s tried and true trademark for resolving sticky situations where someone gains a little too much inside information about the Man of Steel. That person somehow gets shoved down or knocked out or hit in the head or have a seizure or fall asleep or have a Kryptonite-induced hallucination or SOMEHOW shake their Etch-a-Sketch of a brain and then suddenly awaken to utter the two most overused words in this show: “What happened?”

Ugh. That’s how they solve everything.

“WHAT? Clark Kent – you’re an ALIEN?! Gahhh!!”


“Wha-what happened? Oh, hi there, Clark, you ol’ human farm boy, you. Have some apple pie.”

Nine years of that. NINE.
So. Unbelievably. Lame.


Okay, I’m gonna finish watching this so I can move on with my life.

(I’m not really pathetic, I promise.)
