Smallville celebrates its 200th episode tonight!

It feels good to share an anniversary with Clark Kent — I turned 35 today, and Smallville airs its 200th episode, “Homecoming,” tonight at 8.

I fell away from the show a few seasons ago, but the ninth and (current) tenth seasons have really gotten me excited about it again. I know we’ll never get a big-screen adventure with Tom Welling as Clark and Erica Durance as Lois, but as long as the show keeps giving me great little Superman movies every month, I’ll continue to be okay with that. (The Blu-Ray release of Season Nine looks amazing, by the way.)

For coverage of (and a countdown to) tonight’s monumental installment, head on over to KryptonSite. I’ll add my own review later this weekend.

    Thank you so much for these insights, John. You have helped me in my quest to
    catch-up. I too was ready to drop Smallville, but something kept me watching and this season has rewarded my tenacity. Sometimes this show gives us the most poignant and romantic moments. I’ll remember Clark slowly lifting them up, entwined in each others arms, for a long, long time. It doesn’t get much better.

  2. John says:

    It really doesn’t get better — I told Dorothy in the other thread that if this had been the series finale, I’d have been entirely satisfied. The show has been all over the place over the years, but if they can keep the focus they had in this episode, we should get a worthy ending. If only we could get Tom and Erica in the movies.
