miss_tress has a fun poll on her LJ: "Why are Al and Miles leaving Smallville before the 8th season?" She asked her f-list to come up with reasons: from the semi-serious to the hilarious.

I contributed an answer, but I won't say which. And some of the answers are a lot funnier than mine, anyway! :D

OT, and I don't know how you feel about traveling to Madison, WI but just in case.

GAH! How I would LOVE to see them! But, alas, money and time do not permit any concert watching. :((

Ha. I'd definately have to go with the last one - they don't have an ending. I mean, this show is so focused on the end product and then they leave before the final season? What?

Also, there is some speculation that they were fired or pressured into stepping down, with doesn't seem completely unrealistic.

LOL, I know. And if they were pressured...? Hmm.

On one hand, I love some of the things they did. On the other hand, there's been so much bad. And they did write the screenplay for my favorite superhero movie, Spider-Man 2, so they can't be all bad.

I didn't realize they wrote that. That was a great movie!

And I'm just not sure whether to be aprehensive about a S8 without them or not. You can never tell how much of the Clana/whatever else was their idea or not. Sometimes I wonder if they take the blame unfairly.

Still... if they were "in charge" would they have let the Clana go on so long if they didn't like that?

Maybe later on we'll find out who was responsible for what.

True. But other people could have had a hand in that, not just them. That's what I'm saying.

What a great poll! It was a difficult choice; they were are pretty awesome. I had to choose E..!! They have nothing to write about once Lana leaves. I mean, who is this Clark person??!:D:D

Well, hopefully whoever comes in next will have some sort of idea of what to do with Clark! :)

Oh! That was hilarious!! I was only disappointed there was no "all of the above" option. I mean, seriously. And season 8... *whew*. Al and Miles really made their 3 seasons' worth of plot last! :D

LOL. Completely. I think they probably ran out of ideas ages ago... :)

Oh, that is a funny poll:)

A friend of mine from college is a writer & artist for comics & has done some work on Smallville, he's kinda my source on all things geek;) Anyway, he said they were made to leave. The show was orginally conceived to be Buffy, teen-angst show(which is what I thought when it started)...Clark fighting Kryptnite freaks while growing up different, developing abilities, but when all the Clana stuff started they switched directions. Turned it into Lanaville, they wanted to keep things going however so they couldn't put Clark & Lana together for keeps, so they would break them up, but wanted to keep Clark a nice guy, which meant making Lana...annoying to say the least. They just ended up pissing off too many people.

Wow, that's good to know. There have been so many rumors, it's hard to know what's true! :)
