from what i’ve read there seems to be a major divide between people who like seasons 1-7 (which imo are very early 2000′s fantasy ie buffy) the best and people who like 8-10 (which seem to be more along the lines of modern day superhero shows) better and. tbh i’m finding myself in the latter camp?? which is surprising for me because i LOVE buffy and angel and charmed and stuff like that but idk i just think the tone of the last three seasons works better for this particular show.
like idk i do miss lex and lionel but i was getting. reaaally tired of the clark/lana angst being dragged out season after season. and these later seasons seem less formulaic and iDK it’s just really where the show hit its stride for me.
