Please don't flame me, but I think Kristin Kreuk was miscast as Lana Lang.

I wouldn't go as far to say she was miscast,since they cast a black Pete and had a new character in Chloe, so it was clear they were doing things differently. But I think she was definitely misused. I think Kristin was great in the first season, but as the series evolved and her character changed, that's when she didn't seem to fit anymore.

We've spoken here a lot before about how the comic version of Lana was basically split into Lana and Chloe, and I think that became a big problem as the series progressed, since Clark's relationship with Lana was based more on angst and secrets. They never became close friends, but rather distant lovers. Everything that Chloe became up until season 6 was basically what Lana was supposed to be, aside from the journalist stuff. She went from being a romantic interest, to being a close and trust worthy friend, and almost as a little sister to Clark.

I don't think she was miscast. The actress was ok, the character was terrible.

This, Lana was a reporter in the comics in the silver age and a news reporter in the bronze age.

Yeah I don't think Ackles would have fit as CLark, he seems to "crazy" to be playing Superman.

Both Lana and Chloe overstayed their welcome on Smallville. I don't feel Kristen was miscast she was just misused. They had no idea what to do with her but wouldn't write her out because she was so pretty.

Chloe is awesome. I can kind of understand why she irritated people sometimes but not me. I adore Allison.

I never really had a problem with her because I liked Allison as well, but I think after season 6, her character went through some of the same issues that Lana went through earlier, which was that they didn't know how to keep her around, but they still wanted to have her around, so they changed her drastically to the point where it seemed like she was more of a setback for Clark.

All that talk about him being a BDA was because Chloe had suddenly become smarter than him and basically commanded him around. He couldn't make any decisions without consulting her for a long time. Adding to that, they made her a meteor freak for a while, put her in the spotlight for much of the last few seasons, and had her marry Oliver while becoming Watchtower for the JL. Stuff like that made it more desirable that she would have died earlier in the series.

I agree with this, when Lana left it seems like they gave Chloe some of what i would consider "bad Lana plots"(ie the relationship angst plots)

I think this was my bigger issue with the character then being shot into angsty relationship plots in later seasons(as bad as they were). I had no problem Chloe being used every now and then like they used her in early seasons but starting around Season 5 it was like Clark couldn't go to the washroom without consulting with Chloe first. It basically felt like Chloe to often was built up by dumbing down Clark so her character could have a bigger purpose. The show would be better served if Clark came to her on occasion for the odd piece of info in those early seasons, but let the heroics lie squarely on the shoulders of Clark and let Chloe be off doing her own thing and mainly used as a character Clark can talk to about stuff in his personal life(not hero life). I am guessing though the producers figured they would pander to the Chloe fanbase and have Chloe more active him sidekicking for Clark since it would give her more screentime and a bigger purpose.

I first started to really dislike Chloe when they kept doing the on again off again relationship with Jimmy. I really hated the triangle they tried to do with Kara, mostly because that just seemed to be a plot device to give those characters something to do.

Yeah, I remember early in the series, they said Chloe was supposed to be like the audience's voice, and also the person who basically explained everything in a short time so the audience could understand what was going on, since Allison was so good at doing exposition and making it seem natural. I didn't mind that, but once they made her Clark babysitter, it did seem like a distraction. If anything, I think they should've killed her at the end of season 3.

But I really hated her after season 8 because it was clear that Brian and Kelly loved her more and put her more in the spotlight than Clark. I also liken her return in season 10 to Lana's return in season 8, where it just didn't fit and killed the momentum of the first half. The truth is, Chloe only became a big chsaracter because Lana and Martha were gone, so they needed somebody, and they had not yet pulled the trigger on Lois and Clark. But that's why season 9 is my favorite, because Clark no longer relied on Chloe and they finally started to build up a likeable female that actually pushed Clark on his journey, as opposed to holding him back.
