Seasons 1-3. LOVE LOVE LOVE.
I didn't truly start enjoying the show again until Lana was gone. There were just... moments, and maybe an episode here or there that I liked. I watched just for Lois for a long time.
I liked early Smallville, especially Season 1. Although it was mostly freak of the week, it still felt fresh. Early Smallville didn't feel so typically like a CW show, probably partly because the CW didn't exist yet. Anyone remember which season they began? When did Jensen Ackles show up?
Clark just abandoned his college years. They never really showed the resolution of that. He just began working for the planet.
With the awful finale, it just sours the whole series for me and makes everything feel like a big waste of time. It's a shame it didn't end better.
