On Friday, January 29th, Smallville will begin the run of its final episodes leading up to the Series Finale of what has been the longest-running Superman television show in history and to celebrate this tremendous occasion, The CW released an exclusive poster to the DC Source Blog yesterday morning.
We’ve included the poster here at right (click for larger, full view). While the poster is pretty neat within itself, it has a even bigger surprise if you take a closer look (hint: take a good look at Clark’s reflection).
As the poster clearly states, Destiny is Now for Clark Kent. These final episodes will lead up to a finale which will hopefully see Tom Welling don the iconic Superman suit, thus finally embracing the destiny that he was born to live as he becomes the legendary Man of Steel. From the spoilers and coverage I’ve read online, it sounds like Smallville fans are in for a real treat for these final episodes and I’m eager to see what showrunners Brian Peterson and Kelly Saunders and the rest of the writing staff have in store for us.
The most wonderful time of the year is once again upon us. The Christmas season is here and with that comes Christmas TV episodes!
For the 25 days leading up til Christmas Day this month, we’ll be spotlighting some of the best Christmas-themed episodes from some of Geek culture’s greatest shows. Each day we’ll cover different shows and episodes and encourage you to watch along with us. So come one, come all, to the 25 Days of Geek TV Christmas!

Smallville The Complete Seventh Season

Release date: September 9, 2008
Smallville Season 7 is, arguably, the weakest of the series’ run. In its early days this was a show that was unique in its attempt to bring Superman to the small-screen in a trendy way making it more popular than it ever has. My favorite seasons have to be 1-4, along with select episodes within the sixth installment of the series.
Superman lore was redefined in this series giving it more edge but also more personal drama one. In Season 7, much has happened to the Man of Steel but much hasn’t, after all these years, you’d think Clark Kent could begin his transformation from boy to man and become the great superhero we all know him to be. In other words, I thought in this series certain things would come to a close, such as loving Lana Lang, running around after the villain of the week, one step closer to flying, etc. Unfortunately I was wrong.
