The problem I have with Smallville is that Tom Welling really doesn't convince as someone who could become Superman.  Hell, he barely convinces as Clark.  :)

(seriously; they're seven seasons in, and Clark still can't fly?).
I've been watching for seven years, and I still can't fly. What's your point? :P

I find it kinda funny that Tom Welling as college-age Clark is about 5 years older than Dean Cain was when he debuted as adult Clark though.  :)
Yeah; he is older than Brandon Routh, too. And Michael Rosenbaum, who plays Lex, is pushing 35.

But they're still gorgeous, so who cares?   ;)

You guys don't have a thread for it, so..................
Quote
The CW confirmed that "Smallville" star Michael Rosenbaum (Lex Luthor) will indeed be leaving the show as a regular cast member at the end of the current season. New villains will replace Luthor in the upcoming eighth season: Doomsday and an as-yet-unidentified female baddie. Producers also left the door open for Rosenbaum to return in a guest spot.

For his part, Rosenbaum issued a letter to fans thanking them for their support over the years. "Well, it's been seven wonderful years," he wrote. "Your support is what has made Smallville so successful, and I appreciate you all more than you know. That being said, it is time for me to start the next chapter of my life and career. I hope that I gave you some enjoyment over the years, and that you found my portrayal of Lex Luthor to be satisfying. I am truly grateful, as Smallville fans are the best fans out there. I sincerely hope that you will continue to follow my career through my hair growth period and beyond."

As for the new villains? Here's how The CW described them:

"In season eight, Clark [Tom Welling] will face his ultimate challenge with the appearance of the legendary, unstoppable destroyer Doomsday, who appears on Smallville for the first time. As comic-book fans know, Doomsday is notorious for being the only character in the DC Comics universe to have killed Superman."

The network added: "Doomsday won't be Clark's only nemesis in the upcoming season. The executive producers are tight-lipped about a new female villain they will be introducing, but they can say she will be familiar to many fans and will set her sights on Clark in ways Lex never could. Intelligent, brilliantly manipulative and dangerously sinister, our gorgeous new villain has one more weapon in her arsenal: Her mutual attraction with Clark may prove to be as deadly as kryptonite for him."

Rosenbaum's departure isn't the only one from the longstanding series: Show creators Alfred Gough and Miles Millar previously announced that the current seventh season would be their last, and Kristin Kreuk (Lana Lang) will reduce her appearances in season eight. "Smallville" airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

New Amsterdam was kind of a surprised, but I'm still angry over Angel being canceled almost four years ago.

No doubt.  But, are you a comic book fan?  Joss Whedon is involved with the Season 6 comic book series currently in production.  Not as heavily involved with the writing as he is with the Buffy Season 8 but if is involved and has approved the stories.  It starts up right after the end of Season 5 and we get to find out what happened to everyone.  There are a lot of surprises and it's been giving me some closure on that series as well as being a fun read.

I'm kinda disappointed Back to You was cancelled, but that does give Fred Willard more time to record another Rifftrax,  ;D

I thought that with the people involved, Back to You was a waste of talent.
