What is your favorite Smallville season? For me it would have to be
season 3, especially since it had such a great finale. Maybe the best season
finale in the history of television.
To me, season one was good but still building on the idea of who Clark was,
who his friends were, and both first and second seasons had too many "Freak
of the Week" episodes. Second season started building more on the Superman
mythos, so it was very good. I think everything started to really gel in the
third season. Fourth season got a little too far off the mark with silly
episodes like Lucy and Krypto, and Lois's new boyfriend and his crazy
family, and Pete leaving, etc. Fifth season had my very favorite episode, "Lexmas",
but otherwise I was not too found of the direction things went, especially
with Jonathan Kent dying. I did like that they started introducing more
comic book characters. Sixth season was back on track with the Justice
League and some great episodes, although "Hydro" has got to be one of the
worst episodes ever. Sixth season is probably my second-favorite season. I
haven't decided yet on the seventh season, but I do like Kara. The only
thing I really don't like is how they made Lana so dark for a while, and how
they did not make it clear about whether she and Clark (and Bizarro Clark)
were sleeping together or not. I think they are, but they have the most
lukewarm relationship this season that it's hard to know.
I enjoy all of the characters, but I really hate how they can't seem to make
up their minds about whether Lionel is really evil or not. Seems like he
changes way too often. I know that in real life people are more complex, and
sometimes they are evil, and sometimes not, but in comic books I like my
characters to choose sides one way or the other. Grey areas are disturbing.
Lex I don't have to worry about. He was always headed toward evil. As much
as I like Lex to be more sympathetic, we all know that he is headed toward
being a super-villain, so there is no saving him. I guess we can blame
Lionel for that, so that makes the decision for us on whether Lionel is evil
or not. He messed with Lex's head way too many times.
