Saw the series finale and have to say it was terrific. Not only was it a great send off for "Smallville," but it was also a great tribute to "Superman - The Movie," made way back in the late 1970's. I thought it wonderful that at the end of the series finale, they showed bumbling Clark Kent crashing into Lois Lane, spilling their papers. The background music during this scene was "Read My Mind" written for the original movie and spoken by Lois Lane (Margot Kidder). The song was later recorded and became an instant hit. I was thrilled that it was played during this particular scene. Then when it's announced at the Dailey Planet that there was a bomb in an elevator... we hear the original score of "Superman" - and when Clark tears his shirt open and reveals the superman suit underneath... the horns and trumpets seem to soar. Loved how the ending credits flashed onto the screen in a similar way that the original movie credits did. It was all a great tribute to the original Superman Movie.... as well as to Christopher Reeve, Margo Kidder, Jackie Cooper, Marlon Brando, Gene Hackman, Richard Donner, and all of the cast and crew of the original Movie. Also loved how "Smallville" decided to have Jonathan Kent hand the Superman suit to Clark. Great job, Smallville!
