->''"Variety is the spice of life and [[StatusQuoIsGod status quo]] is the starch. The star that shines brightest is all the more glorious for its brevity. Or, to bring the metaphor down to a broader cultural level, ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' has been running for 21 seasons and ''hasn't been good since the fifth!''"''\\

->''"There is a longstanding and not particularly interesting debate over what the killing blow for the classic series was. I say it is uninteresting because it is, quite frankly, supremely easy to answer: [[{{Recap/DoctorWhoS21E1WarriorsOfTheDeep}} Warriors of the Deep]] finally gave a story so bad that not even the fans could defend it (itís telling that ''Magazine/DoctorWhoMagazine'' didnít even bother running a review of the story) that gave open ammunition to [[ScrewedByTheNetwork Michael Grade]]. [[{{Recap/DoctorWhoS21E7TheTwinDilemma}} The Twin Dilemma]] [[NeverLiveItDown cripples the incoming Doctor]] so that he is essentially never, ever going to be able to win the public over. And then [[{{Recap/DoctorWhoS23E4TheUltimateFoe}} Trial of a Time Lord]] botches the last throw of the dice, failing to bring a restored show that anybody can be excited about and tout as the triumphant relaunch of ''Series/DoctorWho.''"''\\

I have determined this phrase, and this idea, to be the central thesis of ''{{Series/Smallville}}''... Smallville promised us the princess would be safe. Then they came in and froze Han, chopped off Luke's hand, and told us that we should be happy for what we have... ''Smallville'' is no longer ''Smallville'' any more. It is, at best, a bastardized and manipulated attempt to put a hand in the pocket of fanboys the world around, and like the new ''Film/StarTrek'' movie, it's a smashing success for it. When I am asked the question, 'How long do you think ''Smallville'' will run?' my answer has always been, 'Until the money runs out.' But now the answer is different. My answer is now, [='=]''Smallville'' is over.'\\\
Smallville started out as a story of young Clark growing into Superman.\\\
Now Clark is 22. He has no degree. He's fought every major villain in his mythos before he ever put the suit on."''\\
