Heh yeah it's funny that supposedly Clark and the Kent's had to lie about Clark's secret because the government would have been investigating him like a shot otherwise, yet the officials seemed to take very little notice of all the strange happenings being reported on in Smallville. Even when Eric from Leech was openly using Clark's powers it seemed more something that caught the papers interest and calling him superboy, rather than any indication that the US government considered him a threat to national security and wanted to dissect him and run experiments, if I'm remembering this correctly he only get turned on because his Dad freaked out and called Belle Reeve?
I think the one that stands out to me is Exile, it's easy enough to imagine Smallville is it's own small little world and the town the government forgot, but when Clark went on a robbing bank spree, just breaking in with little trouble(all which is caught on cameras) in metropolis, all of a sudden that would get a lot of attention from the media and the Feds.
I do think the Government vs Clark could have been a hell of alot more entertaining then alot of stuff Smallville tried to pass of as "drama"(generally it seemed they went for the romantic stuff as a main source of drama). I don't think the producers would be happy unless Clark was whining and moping to be honest(which sadly would most likely be included in a Government vs Clark storyline, because that's how the producer roll)
And when it comes to Smallville, I more wish they'd done better with the storylines they did do, rather than wishing they'd brought in even more storylines to not do very well.
I think many of the stories Smallville did do were rather unsalvageable(Lexana, Clark screws up and loses his powers only to get them back and have his dad die, Clark has issues with every character after the events of Exile, Jor-El)
I think Smallville was bad at beating a dead horse when it came to their storylines, Gov vs Clark would have been something different if nothing else.
