1: Why is Lex Luthor played by a young, bald person? Everybody knows that Lex Luthor is Gene Hackman in disguise. I cannot comprehend why anyone would want to watch a programme which pretends that Gene Hackman does not exist. In the X-Men films they got Captain Picard and Gandalf and made them look younger with technology; why couldn’t they have done that with Gene? Then, perhaps maybe the show would be worthwhile.
2: Nobody likes Superman. He’s a perfect hero with only one weakness, which happens to be a magical kind of rock. Apart from that, he always wins and he always gets his way. I want to see a program about an interesting, flawed, and complex comic-book character, which is why I religiously watch Dennis The Menace. (Gnasher is my favourite)
3: I’ve never heard of this ‘Smallville’ place before. Superman lives in Metropolis, doesn’t he?
4: Clark Kent doesn’t wear glasses on the show when he's not Superman. He does in the movies and comics, and the only reason I can think for why he doesn’t wear them on this show is that the show’s producers are prejudiced against the short-sighted. Hopefully Clark will have a horrible accident involving his eyes sometime soon.
5: I’m led to believe the show is about farmers. I do not care for farmers, and never will.
6: My main issue: there is no interest in “Superman; the early years”. Y’know what’d be more interesting? “Superman; the killing aliens and fighting as a superhero to save the world” years. Then we could have him flying around with his costume and Lois Lane would be around and he’d fight aliens and baddies and save the day all the time. That’s a much more interesting premise for a show that watching a teenager mope around a lot about the girl he fancies (and he’s not even going to end up with her! Way to waste our time, Smallville producers!)
7: No Batman? What’s up with that?
