Smallville Is Gone…Forever

20 May

I’ve noticed in my site stats that many of the search terms that direct people to my blog are asking if Smallville has been cancelled. The answer is yes. Smallville ended its series last week, Friday May 13th, 2011.  The show lasted for 10 years and it was the longest running Sci-Fi series in American history.

For those of you new to the world of Smallville or have no clue of what I am talking about, let me give you a little information.  Smallville is the story of Clark Kent before he becomes Superman.  The series takes us from the meteor shower where Martha and Johnathan Kent find Clark to the day Clark accepts his destiny and takes to the skies as Superman.

So, for the people who keep searching “smallville cancelled 2011” you will be disappointed to find the truth.  As to why, I personally believe it was just time.  Ten years is a long time to keep a show going and to keep fans happy. Considering this show was all about the life of Superman before he was Superman means that once Clark became Superman the show was complete.

Who knows, maybe one day we will see a spin-off series. At least the fans hope so!

Television Obsession

10 Jan

I have an obsession.  Three obsessions, technically.  I can’t help it.  They all make me laugh and allow me to step into a whole new world. My three obsessions: Smallville, Chuck, and How I Met Your Mother.

Smallville

 

1. Smallville. One word. Superman.  Isn’t that enough of an explanation?  I can’t get enough of this show.  If you have never seen it, it is the life of Clark Kent pre-Superman.  It starts of with Clark starting his freshman year of high school. Everyone is there. Lex Luther, Lana Lang, Lionel Luther, Martha Kent, Johnathan Kent, Lois Lane.  You even get Zod, Darkseid, Checkmate, and the Suicide Squad.  Its action packed.  The love story of Clark and Lois.  Not to mention, how Superman became Superman.  No other explanation required.

 

Chuck

 

2. Chuck. It’s like James Bond with a nerd twist. Whats better than an average guy who get a CIA super computer trapped in his brain?  Oh, I know whats better.  The love story between the average guy and his CIA handler.  And of course, the spy stuff.

 

 

3. How I Met Your Mother. No spy stuff.  No action packed scenes.  Just damn good comedy.  Ted tell his children the story of how he met their mother.  It’s almost like the new Friends. The ups and downs of love and friendship.  Its more like real life. It helps bring me back to reality.
