Here’s a Smallville series wrap-up review by your local friendly neighborhood comic shop manager (if you live in Ventura, anyway).
I actually did watch the first couple seasons of this show, until the Dawson’s-Creekishness got too overwhelming to take. If it’s on Netflix, I may eventually go back and watch the rest someday (in the unlikely event that I stumble onto a whole bunch of free time), since I do still think the parts I did see were - in some ways – the best live action Superman adaptation that’s been done so far.
I remember first hearing about this show because Zach was trying to land the role of Lex before it launched. Ultimately, he didn’t make it and went on to better things, which is probably for the best since I thought that the actor who did play Lex was very well suited to the role.
