I really used to look forward to watching Smallville every week. In my defense, I was like 14 at the time, and seeing comic books come to life was a new sensation for me. It didn’t take me long to figure out how lazy the writing was, but still, they hooked me. Superman has always been my least favorite super hero, but still, they hooked me. Nobody else I knew liked the show, but still, they hooked me. An unlikely match, but a strong one.
I still remember when I finally had a VCR capable of scheduling recordings ahead of time. I no longer even needed to watch it live, but I still almost always did. I remember a friend twisting my arm to go hang out and do dumb teenager things, and how the only thing to more lame than my excuse “I don’t want to miss Smallville” was how I felt when he (truthfully) responded with “Come on man, I know you’re going to tape it either way”. Did I mention I liked comics? Just trying to paint a picture here.
This list brought it all rushing back. A massive list of some of the batshit insane things that they got away with on this show. Before you click the link, take a guess as to which character got knocked unconscious the most. I’ll give you a hint, this character wasn’t even in the series from the start but managed to snag the title.
