was wondering how people would characterize each season. in a few short words or sentances. i was just watching "look up in the sky....superman" and the creators were doing what they felt were some of the themes of the first few seasons. i think they stopped at season four. so here are mine:


Season 1 what am I?
Season 2 where am I from?
Season 3 secrets and memories
Season 4 going towards his future
Season 5 letting go
Season 6 there are others like him
Season 7 family
Season 8 two identities
 
season 5 was probably the most depressing one for Clark. His dad died, he broke up with Lana who ended up with his enemy, had to fight off 2 aliens and a machine, got trapped in the PZ, etc.
 
Yeah, those are about right and I guess Season 9 will be about returning home/rising above the darkness or something like that.:o
 
Yea i can see that being the central theme since clark is anti human side/emotion.
 
hopefully the season 9 theme will be Clark ACTUALLY becoming Superman

Doubtful.

Pretty sure one of the producers said in an interview (pre-finale) that S9 would be Clark's darkest hour before becoming Superman.

you know, for a superhero who is supposed to be cheery and optimistic, this show sure has a lot of doom and gloom.

Yeah, Smallville has gotten way too carried away with the dark storytelling and it's becoming depressing/redundant. Seriously, who needs villains when you have a hero so depressed all the time, he might as well kill himself.:oldrazz:
 
kill himself and be reborn? lol. im pretty curious if clark was affected by the black kryptonite. i wonder if it'll be kind of like a bizarro type move and then when he combines back into one, he'll kind of accept his kryptonian side as well as his human side. kryptonian clark and earth clark will be side by side and talk to jor el and jor el will say something along the lines of "you both need one another to save humanity. it is time for you to embrace your kryptonian heritage as well as your humanity as both are needed to fullfill your birthright.....i am proud of you my son, but your journey is only beginning now" the clarks in unison will be like "thank you father" then they'll be a combination sequence and then he'll magically appear as superman and fly out.
 
YEa i know i and a few others here made the comment of what if when clark slammed doomsday into the factor it was where the black k was and he got to close it or. It is something they could play up on.

wasn't Season 8 suppose to be their darkest season?

what's with Hollywood thinking "Dark" is the ONLY way to go


seriously, the industry needs to give up this "Dark" fetish they've acquired since the success of...well.....you know

it's rather....redundant :cwink:
 
well smallville was doing dark themes well before bb/tdk. And we got to remember when gough and millar were on board season 1-7 their original idea was for bruce show. Before it was shot down and was inturn became clark kent/superman show. So they probably wanted to throw in some dark stuff here and there since they were never able to get bats to happen.
 
I think season 8 was more about the value of life personally.
