Well, Republibots 1.0, 3.0 and 36-24-36 are all down with the crud today, so that means I get to talk about what I want to talk about.... and I've chosen Smallville!
I like superheroes, even though technically not Science Fiction (I don't care if they put scientific trappings around a superhero, it's still fantasy...), they do have redeeming qualities. The stories, at their best, reflect nobility, responsibility and virtue. At their worst, they are.... well, dreadful, honestly.
Smallville is frequently both.
