Hey, did you know you can catch a 10 minute preview of Batman Begins during the 90 minute season finale of Smallville? If you didn't, we will kindly remind you EVERY 10 SECONDS during the season finale of Gilmore Girls!

They're pulling out all the stops for the finale, trying to lure viewers from Part 1 of the Lost finale.

Hope that extra 30 minutes helps

You could always just watch "Lost" live while recording "Smallville."

After all, "Idol" isn't on until 9.

I hope there is a torrent or something of the batman begins footage from tonight, that is how I get Smallville and I assume the encoders won't include it in the smallville cap. Damn DirecTV doesn't think the WB should be available to some of us in the sticks.

If it doesnt rock tonight, I think I may be deleting it from my season pass on Tivo.
I am looking forward to the Batman footage though.

Well, it looks like the producers saved up about 5 episodes' worth of special effects for the season finale, and so far, it's been tense and suspenseful, with Lex this close to losing it.

I hate this show because when it's good, it's really good, but it's just so inconsistent from week to week. I guess there are only so many epic stories you can tell in any given season.

Now that is the smallville I remember, much better then that garbage that has been on the past few weeks. Seeing Lex getting so utterly pissed off at all the lying was great.

Funny I thought it was going to General Zod smallville style, some 20 something guy with long flowing hair and an evil sneer.

da fuck was that?

the finale in imo wasn't good, the only part i liked was the 2 minutes when chloe showed up and found clark

the 'timeclock' looked like a bootleg 24, and the show had no structure it just went from one thing to the next

jason comes back, lana spots a new ship???, clark is apparently at the north pole building his fortress

and i guess ma and pa kent are dead by now or at least pa kent

and i guess chloe and lex have amnesia???

dammit smallville!

Well, they lied about it being a 90 minute Smallville season finale. The Batman Begins preview cut off 15 minutes of the Smallville episode, so it was more like 75 minutes.

unh uh..

That's a lame criticism if I've ever heard one. It's a frickin' TV show with a very small budget. What do you expect, epic caliber 100 million dollar effects?

"Now that is the smallville I remember ... "

Yes, I thought it was a very good finale.

I also watched the BM Begins preview.

I am much more excited about next season than the Batman movie.

The producers have indicated the show will take a different turn next year. Rather curious to see what they come up with. Freak of the Week has been done to death.

As for the CGI ... It wasn't the best it could have been, but it did get the point across and there seemed to be quite a bit of it. For a show that draws mediocre numbers, I thought it was good enough

I give the finale a B grade.

Man, I hate nit picking like that.

Personally, I can't believe anyone would criticize that scene, because I thought that was one of the most amazing things I've EVER seen on television. It was awesome on my 10ft screen.

What scene are you referring to? I loved tonight's season finale.
