Friday, Sept. 24, 2010: Smallville

Friday, Sept. 24, 2010: <i>Smallville</i>

Six years ago, the question of whether or not Clark Kent would put on his Superman duds was a much-pondered one. "When would it happen? Season 5? Season 6? After all, it's not like they can go much longer without Clark wearing the red-and-blue tights... can they?" Well, they could and did. After nine seasons -- which, by the way, is more than twice as long as the run of Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, in which Dean Cain wore the tights in nearly every episode -- Tom Welling is finally going to wear the costume. Would you like to see a teaser trailer in which that happens? Well, too bad, because the official teaser trailer would rather show you the super-suit encased in crystal. I get that it's a teaser, but give me a flipping break.

As tired as I'm getting of all this will-he-or-won't-he bullcrap, I'm curious to see how they wrap everything up, so I'll be watching this season religiously for a few different reasons. For one, guest stars will include Aquaman, Hawkman, Stargirl, Supergirl, Brainiac and Pa Kent, who appears in tonight's episode. (It also looks like tonight Lois gets scarecrowed in a burning cornfield by a bald guy, who we're assuming is meant to appear to be Lex Luthor. We'll see.) Plus, Chloe will be winding down her run on the show early, and I want to see how they manage to write that character off. And the big villain for the season is rumored to be the New God and ruler of Apokolips, Darkseid. His lieutenant Granny Goodness made a cameo in the season finale, so hopefully other New Gods like Orion, Mister Miracle, Highfather, Virman Vundabar, Mokkari and Big Barda will make an appearance. I'm also holding out for an appearance by Jon Hamm as an older Superman in the last episode. A boy can dream.

Smallville Season 10 premieres tonight at 8:00 on The CW, followed by the season premiere of Supernatural. Then see below what vlogger Sean Crespo thinks of Smallville when he has No Prior Knowledge!
