The series finale of Smallville is airing tonight in a 2-hour finale on The CW that promises to be a very exciting television event for the fans.  Despite some lows in story, there have also been some highs and through it all, we’ve stuck by the show.  Having started with the series, watching it for so long, how can you not see it through?

Via Smallville, on The CW we’ve been introduced to the vision of a reimagined Superman originally conceived and brought to us by Alfred Gough and Miles Millar.  Over the last 10 years we’ve been introduced to Tom Welling, Allison Mack, Kristen Kreuk, Michael Rosenbaum, Erica Durance, Justin Hartley and many many more.

By ‘introduced’ I mean brought to our attention, not necessarily first time to TV.

Yes, he runs for a phone booth too!

Tom Welling has become a producer and other cast have come to be a part of our awareness as we start to follow them in other ventures.  The most popular of the cast could very well be Michael Rosenbaum.

Through the last ten years, we’ve cried for the series to break the rules of ‘no tights’ but we’ve come to learn they had other legal obligations they had to operate by.  We’ve never seen Batman or Wonder Woman or The Flash, but we’ve seen other characters or representations of these characters in different ways.

We’ve even seen a few Stargate Universe alumni along the way, in Mike Dupud, who played security guard George in at least 10 episodes and Alaina Huffman as Black Canary, and Elyse Levesque in a few roles.

Other Stargate alumni like Robert Picardo plus one of my favorites, Michael Shanks.  The ladies were introduced to Sam Witwer, who later went on to become a vampire in Being Human.

Jensen Ackles was in the early part of the season who later went on to become a hunter in Supernatural.

For you Vampire Diaries fans, if you might remember, Ian Somerhalder was in six episodes.

We’ve even had some Battlestar Galactica veterans pass through the sets of Smallville as well.

Even Christopher Reeves made a great appearance in the series.

Farewell, and thank you to everyone who made this ten year memory part of our history, of our TV watching lives.  Following the series finale of Smallville, I’ll be sticking a recap/review up sometime in the next day or so!  So stay tuned to Cinema Static here on Brusimm!

Be prepared, from what I understand, we’re only going to get the suit at the end of the episode.  I hope I’m wrong, but that’s what I’ve deduced.

I didn’t include everyone I remembered.  I thought I’d leave some of it to you guys…  who did you recall enjoying as they passed through the sets for guest appearances?

I have been watching Smallville since day 1, and I am a little disappointed after watching the series finale. Through out the series you would see some episodes that were obviously “borrowed” from different movies, but this last season was the worst. I saw multiple episodes that were, frankly, plajorizing other people’s work. Some of movies they ripped off, off the top of my head (I can’t think of the episode names at the moment) were the Matrix, 300, 28 Days Later, and Superman Returns. It’s pityful because the last Superman movie sucked badly, and nobody in that screenwriting meeting room couldn’t think up something at halfway original. I mean they already changed the plot anyway, why not put thier brains together and make something mindblowing? Frankly the finale seemed rushed and halfassed, and as a fan of 10 years, I expected better. Which makes the ending of Smallville that much more sadening.
