Smallville still weaves an interesting drama, with mystery and ambivalence.

The fan boy in me ate up these appearances with the Geoff Johns penned Legion episode ranking very high in a strong season.

With [Davis] Bloome, Smallville has created a fascinating new character which may not technically fit into the canon of the DC Universe but certainly brings a lot more to the character than the hulking Doomsday would have done on its own.

What amazes me about Smallville is that no matter how bad the storylines may get or how tiresome the narrative becomes, there is always this glimmer of hope that pulls us back in year after year.

Gosh, what a silly show this is.
