Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Cree McCree
A smash hit for the WB, this fresh spin on the Superman franchise asks the burning question: What was Clark Kent like in high school? As played by Tom Welling, the Teen of Steel is all too human; he may be hunkier than Dawson, but he's equally insecure. It's not easy being different in a small town -- especially if you're cursed with superpowers you don't really understand and you hanker for a gal whose folks were killed by the meteor shower that brought you to Earth. While pursuing the luscious Lana Lang Kristin Kreuk, young Clark must dodge Kryptonite rocks, sadistic jocks, and pesky mutants like "bugboy"­­ -- not to mention his own X-ray vision, which gives him blinding headaches. Although neatly constructed, Smallville's first season is not immune to the monster-of-the-week syndrome. But like Buffy and The X-Files before it, the show lays the groundwork for story arcs destined to haunt future seasons. Particularly compelling is Clark's relationship with Lex Luther Michael Rosenbaum, son of the town tycoon, whose life he saves in the opening episode. As every fan knows, young Lex will grow up to be the archest of Superman villains. But in Smallville, his fate is by no means sealed. Luther's struggle to escape the grip of his evil father and salvage his own humanity is a superheroic battle in itself.

    there should be an episode where clark is doing his chores and a kid falls from the sky in a ship similar to clarks and i want to be the kid that comes out of the ship even though im asian. then the ship lands on the kents farm and i come out of the ship and i fall on the ground and clark comes up and picks me up in his arms then puts me on the couch and calls his mom and dad. then Martha says oh my goodness. Who is she? Then Clark says " she came out of a ship similars to mines". "And its outside of the farm". Then Jonathan say to me,"Hi. My name is Jonathan Kent and this is my wife Martha Kent and this is my son.." then right when he was about to say clarks name i say "I knoe who he is...because im from Krypton" Then Clark becomes shocked. And i tell clark that i have the same weakness and powers he does because he's my brother and again even though im asian. and Clark asks me "So whats your name?" And i say "Clare." As you can see my name is like Clarks not in reality but in the show. Then Clark starts to say to Martha and Jonathan"Mom.

Then they both say "Sure". Then Clark say" Can we adopt her please." Then Martha looks at Jonathan. and Jonathan says "Martha what do you think?" And she says "YES". and then Clark looks at Jonathan and Jonathan says "Why not". And they told me that they are going to adopt me and i start to smile. Then Clark tells Martha and Jonathan that he is goin to the Talon to go and see Lana. and I say "Can I come with you Clark?" And Clark says sure. Then Clark and I drove to the Talon. And Lana says " Hi Clark". and Clark says "hey Lana". Then Clark says "there's someone I want you to meet". "This is my sister Clare". and Lana becomes shocked and looks at me shocked and begins to say "Hi. My name is Lana Lang." and I say "Hi. my name is Clare Kent." Then Lana says" Its nice to meet you Clare" then we shake hands. And Clarks ask lana "Can you bring me a cup of your new shake." and I say "Can you bring me the same as clarks too please." and Lana says "Sure.Of course." and as i look at clark stare at Lana and I ask him " Clark do you like her." And clark says "Yes" "But when i was with her it didnt go well so yeah.." And Lana comes with a cup of shake on one hand and another cup of shake in the other. and Clark say to Lana "Have you seen Chloe"? and Chloe walks into the Talon and says "Hi Clark. Hey Lana." and she ask Clark "who's she?" and Clark says "this's my sister Clare." And Chloe says "Hi. my name is chloe sullivan." and I say "Hi. My name is Clare Kent." but right when clark and I drank our shakes we fall on the ground then lana and chloe say oh my god clark,clare are you guys ok. then clark and i found out that the shake had some meteor rocks in it and as we struggle in pain clark says "sorrie you guys, but Clare and I have to get back to the barn to do some chores. and then Lana and Chloe says but you guys are hurt and i think that you guys should rest and as the meteor rocks goes through clarks and i bodys we ripp out our shirts and there was the kryptonian sign on clarks chest and a kryptonian sign on my stomach. and as lana and chloe sees the sign they looked shocked, then clark said clare lets go. so clark and i got up in pain and left without saying good bye to lana or chloe.

    Addictive

    Smallville brings a side of Superman revealed as a young man, going through the average teenage dramas, but with the weight of many people's lives on his shoulders. Each episode is connected in a way to each other, but with a new chilling plot. A definite keeper!

    Awesome 1st Season

    If the 2nd season comes out as nice as this one we will be in for a real treat. From the minute I put it in my player and heard Remy Zero singing 'Save Me' right to the closing credits of the season finale I was glued to this incredible first season. Clark, Lex, Lana, Chloe, Lionel, Pete, Jonathan and Martha.....could it get any better? The WB hit a grand slam with this one.

    Like the Bible's lost years

    What happened to Jesus between the age of 12 and 30? Well, Smallville is WONDERFUL it its attempt to unveil the Clark Kent mystery that's similar to the mystery of Jesus' youth and young adult years. I watched Superman and wondered what happened during all his growing years. I wonder no more and only wait in anticipation and excitement as Smallville reveals itself like hidden treasure. A must buy !

    A Must Have for the Smallville Fan

    Having never been a Superman fan, I wasn't expecting much when I first watched ''Smallville'' on the WB. My mind was quickly changed. This is by far the most fun-to-watch show I've ever seen. Clark coping with his newly-found powers, not to mention the unattainable girl of his dreams. Lex's epic struggle with his father, which we can all relate to on some level. On a scale of 1-10, I give the Smallville: Season One DVD an 11! Buy it now...seriously, stop reading.

    Just Super!

    Ah, Smallville...how do I love thee? Let me count the ways... Smallville is a superb update origin story of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster's iconic Superman comic book superhero, and with great writing, acting, and special effects, manages to be better than any incarnation of the Man of Steel that came before it (even the comic). I do love Smallville, yes, but this first season did have a problem: Formulaic episodes. Most of the episodes consisted of ''Hey, those meteor rocks turned this guy into a monster, let's go beat him up!'', and it took me a while to actually like the show. But when I did...I loved it, and eventually became fanatical about it. Season 2 is even better! I can't wait for it to come out! (By the way, as I write this, it's about 35 minutes until the premiere of season 3!)

    SMALLVILLE ROCKS!!!

    I STARTED WATCHING SMALLVILLE NEAR THE END OF SEASON ONE. AT FIRST WHEN WHEN IT PREMIRED IN OCTOBER OF 2001, I DIDN'T THINK IT WAS GOING TO LAST AND OF COURSE I WAS WRONG. I THINK SEASON ONE WAS GREAT, I CAN'T WAIT FOR SEASON TWO TO COME OUT. THERE ARE LOT OF PEOPLE THAT I KNOW THAT LOVE SMALLVILLE

    Spectacular TV Incarnation!

    This is one of the most well-constructed super-hero shows I've ever seen. Tom Welling portrays Clark Kent just as good as Christopher Reeve did in ''Superman: The Movie.'' Every episode is well-thought out with each villian being effected by Kryptonite meteor rocks. Lex Luthor's portrayal by Michael Rosenbaum is brilliant. His relationship with his father, Lionel Luthor, is a great mix to the show. Clark's foster parents Jonathan and Martha Kent are written perfectly. Basically, this is a must-see for any fan of Superman in general. Also, I really dig the original Superman score whenever Superman-like happens in the series.

    Probably the Best Show on Television in YEARS!

    As a longtime comic reader and fan of the DC archives, I can truly say this is one of, if not THE, best adaptation of Superman as a teen. One of the best titles I had ever read and enjoyed in my youth was ''The New Adventures of Superboy.'' This show has not only captured the essence of that title, but put some new spin into it. Seeing Clark (Tom Welling) learn about his powers and developing the sense to control them while dealing with all the issues of being a teenager are more than enough to drag me in front of the television week after week. It's the first show in years that has kept me as enthused! You can't go wrong with this one!

    This series is extremely great Granted the second season is much better, this season should stil not be missed. Now the only show that needs to be on DVD is everwood!
