If doing comparisons, fine. But going into long discussions about the show in the Superman/Batman film? That's an issue. This forum has a history of casting bashing and Smallville/Superman film bashing that's lead to flame wars and we don't want to revisit that territory at all.
All right, fine, I'll try and make the comparison points more obviously relevant in each individual post, rather than letting it emerge from the general flow of conversation.
