smallville clark kentMy unabashed love for Smallville is well documented all over the Internets. It's hard to explain why I keep coming back to this silly show year after year. You'd think I woulda stopped watching after several spotty seasons, the never-ending star departures, and the writers' insistence on turning the Superman mythos into a superpowered teen soap opera.

But no, I still watch it. Every week. Alone.

Do I watch out of a sense of nerd obligation? Maybe. I do sometimes feel like it's my duty as a nerd and comic book reader to follow Clark Kent as he takes his many, many, many baby steps to becoming the Man of Steel. But mostly I watch because ... well ... it's fun.

Sure, Smallville is a cheesy show that takes itself too seriously sometimes and, well, probably should have ended, like, five years go. But I still get excited about the prospect of seeing Clark battling key members of Supe's rogues gallery (Lex Luthor, Doomsday and soon Darkseid) and trading barbs with Erica Durance's spicy Lois Lane.

So, yeah, the new Season 10 trailer, which features quick shots of Lionel Luthor (John Glover is back!), Brainiac, Supergirl, Bizarro and Jonathan Kent, is making me anticipate the show's final season more than ever. Head after the jump to watch the clip.
