Smallville and Supernatural Getting One More Season
For several years millions of people have enjoyed Smallville and Supernatural every Thursday night. I'm one of them, and even though Smallville has changed drastically during it's run (It was once a high school drama that featured a young Clark Kent as the central character, now it's a early 20's drama that features a young Clark Kent), I still enjoy it. Especially now that Lex Luthor is just a wee bit more Evil. (Yes, that's Evil with a capitol 'E')
Supernatural is a joy to watch, and the circumstances of the brothers continual quest have changed quite a bit, but the episodes are generally about the same kind of thing; hunting down big Evil baddies and disappearing their asses! It's a formula show that works, and that's the only kind of formula show worth watching.
Anyhow, I'm very happy the CW has announced they're back for another year starting next September/October, with other shows facing the axe of the big bad corporate networks (How I Met Your Mother being one of them, which is just a bit confusing), it's good to see that some quality remains.
