is another place to leave comments about the show. It's a bit clunky to navigate, but at least the comments don't seem to be censored.

My letter to Al Gough was returned, "Forwarding Order Expired," with a new address for Tollins/Robbins:

4130 Cahuenga Blvd. Suite 305
Toluca Lake, CA 91602-2847


I wonder whether it's worth resending. Is Al Gough involved enough with what happens on the show now to care or make a difference? Would sending it just to the production company help?

None of the other three letters has come back, which is a good sign.

I'll change the address on the userinfo.

Hi, Gang,

I think I'm ready with a first draft of my letter, slated to go to Smallville's TPTB: AlMiles, the CW, etc. Of course, minor tweaks will be necessary for each intended audience.

Here are the addresses, once again:

Who to write to about SmallvilleCollapse )

Now, warning, this letter is LONG. I figured it would be easier to get everything on paper and then cut it down, and I am aware it's repetitious in parts. I decided to focus on the elements that bother me the most in the show: the overuse and idealization of Lana, the lack of attention to the Clark/Lex relationship, and poor continuity and characterization in the writing.

Questions:

1. Do you think it's better to send a long letter and go into great detail, as this does, or make it much shorter? I can do either: I figure the people in charge may be more likely to read a concise letter, while, on the other hand, with a long letter, it's taking advantage of my one opportunity to really have my say!

2. Is there anything significantly offensive or off-putting in the letter?

3. Does anything jump out as too "fannish"? and, yes, I realize that sending something of this length would likely brand me as a SV fangirl.

4. Is there anything included that's an out-and-out error?

5. Can anyone share examples of another "dropped" storyline? besides Lex's blood treatments. My mind's a sieve on the subject. At one time, I would have said: "Level 33.1," but that has now been resurrected.

Anyway, here goes. Let me know what else you think, what should stay, go, etc. I appreciate all input, whether or not I agree with it!:
