The tears keep falling on "Smallville"

“Survivor” or “Smallville,” that is - or was — the question. I chose to watch the first episode of “Survivor Panama: Exile Island” on Thursday and taped “Smallville” for viewing over the weekend. The main story was fun but forgettable, centered around a girl with superpowers whose “civilian” identity was a bumbling, glasses-wearing employee of the Daily Planet - in other words, a female Clark Kent. The real heart of the story, though, lie in young Clark’s continuing grief over the loss of his dad, who was killed off in the 100th episode a week before. The closing scene is another heart-wrencher.
