I’ve had my issues with Smallville at times, but at heart I have always been a fan of Clark Kent and Lois Lane and the Man of Steel. I’ve just finished watching the finale and I have to say I think it was one of the best series finales ever! They had the tricky job of trying to match 10 years of Smallville with the 60 years or so (not sure when the comic books started!) of Superman mythology and I thought they did a fantastic job. Smallville has always resisted the Superman icons – the name Superman for a start, the costume, the bumbling reporter alter-ego, and of course, the no flight, no tights rule. I also wondered about the wedding. Could Lois and Clark really get married when all Superman canon had them not married – for a while at least.
