WTF?! Smallville isn't filming at the moment, so MR feels that he can be a total redneck? Not cool, dude. Not cool. You're dead to me until you shave (which at the latest will be when they begin filming the next season).

So, Steven S. DeKnight answered questions over at TWoP (Television Without Pity, for those who aren't in the know) about Smallville. Its somewhat reassuring to know that former Jossverse folks are witty, even if they're not allowed to show it in their writing. Actually, I was almost completely pleased with this Q & A.

There were only minor issues for me. For example, there are some stupid Lois rules. She can't have any smoochy-like moments with Clark, even if he's on Red K. (Of course, its okay for him to see her naked. I'm confused.) Lois also can't have smoochies with Lex, which I can deal with because he has a girlfriend. They used to have a rule that Lex and Lois couldn't have scenes together, and I think that is the stupidest one. Good thing its gone.

My other issue was Mr. DeKnight's response to a question about Zod's behaviour towards Lana. He actually said something along the lines of evil alien overlords being allowed to fall in love with hot chicks. So why wasn't Zod macking on Chloe or Martha? I'm just saying.

I really don't know why I keep watching Smallville when it keeps pissing me off. There is yet another article about it, this time in the New York Times.

In this article, they once again mentioned that they couldn't do their main love triangle until Lana was legal (Hello! Jason Teague!!!). It does make me wonder if they remember that while Michael may be in his thirties, Lex is only twenty-five. Is it really that odd for a high school girl to date a guy in his mid twenties? In my experience, not so much. You guys suck!

Also, they talk about how Clark didn't rid himself of that pesky virginity until season five while other shows will do that in epi twelve. I'm going to avoid my usual rant about this and just say the show might actually be better if they had a more casual attitude towards sex.

Finally, they talk about the end of the show. The end end. Which apparently will be season seven. They have all the actors signed until then (this statement better include John Glover). Wasn't it supposed to be over after five? Why do they hate their fans?

Let's not forget, things are supposed to end bad. And how will it end? "Badly!" Mr. Gough said cheerfully. "It's a tragedy — he doesn't end up with Lana, and he and Lex are mortal enemies. How is that good?" Umm, I think it sounds good. Actually, I'm looking forward to it. And hey, any chance Mortal Enemy!Lex might kill Lana? Please?

So, in summary: AlandMiles = stupid. Me = annoyed. Grr.

Quick note: The aricle is talking about how the show is popular with men aged 18 to 34. This is really not the first time I've enjoyed things aimed at that demographic. I am such a teenage guy sometimes. End note.
