First of all, I have yet to see any of the 10th season of "Smallville" yet, including the Finale. I exclusively watch TV shows on DVD so I can see everything at once, without commercials, etc. Yes, it can be frustrating to wait for the DVD release(s), but thankfully it's becoming less of an issue for me now since many of the shows I'm a big fan of are ending or have already ended ("Smallville" this year, "Lost" & "24" last year, "Sopranos" back in 2007, etc.) That being said, I don't mind Spoilers, and I really wanted to find out what happened in the last episode of Smallville, i.e. whether Clark would finally wear the suit, the final fate of all of the characters, etc. And, I have to say that the above lengthy & detailed review is unquestionably the fairest and most thorough one I've read of the episode so far - even though I haven't even seen this yet, I have read a detailed description online of what took place. And, I noticed that many of the other reviews I read online were uniformly negative; so, it was nice to see that both positive & negative points were covered in this review. Overall, this finale sounds great. However, I will say that I was dissapointed by the fact that Darkseid didn't appear in the form that we have seen in the comics (since he's one of my favorite DC villains), but I guess this makes sense since "Smallville" is known for putting it's own spin on DC characters. I was also dissapointed that it didn't appear that Clark was fully shown in the Superman suit; it sounds like glimpses of him were shown, either extreme close-ups or at a distance. Though this is dissapointing as well, I can live with this & least he did get to wear the suit, which we were all waiting for. And, I guess that we have to all remember that while this show has great effects, it is a network TV show, and therefore does not have the huge budget that you would see in a Hollywood blockbuster film (for example). In any case, based on the first 9 seasons and what I know about the 10th season, I have to say that "Smallville" is the best superhero/sci-fi TV drama that I've ever seen, period. And, outside of the first two Christopher Reeve films, IMHO it was also the best depiction of Superman I've ever seen on-screen.
