Smallville has lost it's touch over the years leading up to the fifth season, but it still stays true to the plot. The thing that bugs me a bit is that the TV Show is called “SMALLVILLE” and they seem to show more of “METROPOLIS” than “SMALLVILLE” this season, which I get, because Clark's finished High School. They might as well have given it a different name, like “METROPOLIS”. But knowing that Clark's journey this season is leading him closer to his destiny, it's okay to have more “METROPOLIS” than “SMALLVILLE”. Overall this season was GOOD.
