“ I was a huge fan the first 4 seasons, but the writer's looked for too many new ways to use Lana that it felt more like her show. They couldn't even have her leave the series without powers.
Plus making Clark afraid of heights right up to the series finale was a weak excuse to why he wasn't Superman yet after 9 years. He got over that fear pretty quick in the finale. ” - jwoehr
