Smallville 100th episode: Good lord almighty.

Entertainment: Every complaint about Gough/Miller was in its glory tonight. A milestone episode that was craptacular from beginning to end. But at least these morons didn't get their original idea going.

"....Oddly, the creators of the sci-fi drama did not initially set out to make a show about Superman. Robbins notes that he and Tollin had their eye on a much darker, though equally compelling, comic-book character. "In the early days of our deal at Warner Bros. (Television), we had the idea to do a young Batman," says Robbins, whose production company with Tollin, Tollin/Robbins, is also behind the WB drama "One Tree Hill." Fortunately for Clark Kent, Warner Bros. Pictures already had spoken for Bruce Wayne's caped crusader: The studio then was developing "Batman: Year One," based on Frank Miller's graphic novel, for Darren Aronofsky to direct (though Christopher Nolan's "Batman Begins" ultimately would restart that film franchise last summer). It was suggested that Tollin and Robbins instead focus their series on Superman, a notion motivated in part by corporate synergy because the studio, the network and DC Comics are all owned by Time Warner."
You thought George Clooney killed the franchise, it would have been history with these guys running it.
