With todays SUPER Shocking news that SMALLVILLE creators and executive producers Al Gough and Miles Millar will not be guiding the show in what is shaping up to be its eighth and final season, this TV Addict thought he’d take this opportunity to irresponsiblrly speculate on some possible reasons for their departure.
POSSIBILITY #1: PRODUCT PLACEMENT FATIGUE
Apparently, Gough and Millar weren’t thrilled with next season’s plan by the CW marketing ‘gurus’ to turn the iconic Superman ‘S’ into a STRIDE gum logo.
POSSIBILITY #2: METEOR-FREAK-OF-THE-WEEK FATIGUE
Not even Braniac himself could come up 150 different ways for the denizens of Smallville to encounter those shiny green insidious rocks.
POSSIBILTIY #3: SPIN-OFF FATIGUE
Gough and Millar signed on to re-imagine Clark Kent the teenager years. The show after-all is called SMALLVILLE, not GREEN ARROW VILLE, or SUPER GIRL VILLE!
POSSIBILITY #4: CREATIVE DIFFERENCES
Gough and Millar wanted to bow out before the CW forced them to break the one golden rule they’ve kept for seven years, “No tights, no flights.”
POSSIBILITY #5: PRODUCT PLACEMENT FATIGUE (Part II)
We can’t stress this enough, Kryptonite Gum… Seriously?Got your own ideas for the reasons behind Gough and Millar’s departure? Irresponsible commenting is fun. Post away
