Ah, Smallville, how we will miss thee

So last week was the series finale of Smallville. I was kind of disappointed. The whole Darkseid storyline wrap up felt very deus-ex-machina. And couldn't they have given a closeup of Welling, head to toe, in the Superman duds? Yet I was still crying at the end, 'cause I'm a big old sap, and it was neat to finally see him become Superman.

I wonder if there'll ever be another show with such shameless exploitation of such a variety of hot guys? Maybe 90210, if it lasts longer. It's amazing that Smallville wasn't a Spelling show, since Charmed was neck-and-neck in that department.

The cast has inspired many a wallpaper here. In fact, the launch of this blog (two years ago yesterday) was of one of them. So I thought I'd do an homage. Also fear not, I'll be doing more wallpapers in the future of guys from the show, since it's a goldmine (no, not that kind) that's far from being exhausted. Thank you, WB/CW, for keeping it on for 10 years. Yep, the stories got crappier as the series continued, but the guys, oh, the guys...

So here are a few, in alphabetical order:

WoW - Wallpaper of the Week

Tahmoh Penikett will be 36 by the end of the week. What does "Tahmoh" mean, anyway? He prefers not to reveal the meaning, because he promised his grandmother or something. It's from the Upper Tanana language, if that helps. Personally, I think his full name translates to "He-who-has-the-James-Marsters-cheekbones-and-Tom-Welling-eyes-and-body-of-a-really-hot-professional-wrestler". But that's just a guess.

I've not seen anything he's done, really, as I wasn't the biggest Battlestar Galactica or Dollhouse fan. Couldn't watch much of him in Riverworld, due to all the liberties they took with the book. What little of him I've seen in interviews makes me hope he'll do some show I like, since he seems to be a genuinely nice guy, with one of the most restful voices I've ever heard. Oh, and he's outstandingly gorgeous.
