    Wow, I wish I would have been old enough to really remember when SV first premiered without tons of superhero shows, and being based on Superman mythology with Clark centralized... That had to be incredible :eek: It's weird cause when watching reruns everything seems just as modern as today now, other than the changing of smartphones ;)

    I will never ever forget the first time I heard or even saw of Smallville. It was New Years Day 2002 and it was debuting on Channel 4 here in the UK. I only heard about it because my Dad had told me about it, same as he did with Superman the Movie when I was 4 years old. What's most interesting is my Dad didn't really like Superman but he was the one who introduced me to him because he (correctly) thought I'd like the character. So anyway I watched Smallville from day one (well day one in the UK) and I never looked back. I still miss the show now and I think it deserves more respect personally. Smallville was almost like a beta test for shows like Arrow, the Flash, Supergirl etc. They were able to figure out a lot of things that helped those shows a lot.
