  • Summary: Smallville tells the tale of a teenage Clark Kent in the days before he was Superman. It is the town where he came from where very strange things started happening with his arrival in a spaceship in the midst of a meteor storm of green rocks. Clark must deal with a variety of individuals given powers by the green rocks, keep his powers a secret, cope with his friendship with a young Lex Luthor, and balance the two girls in his life, Chloe and Lana. The show also shows us how Lex Luthor develops from a friend of Clark's and kinda-okay guy to (presumably) the villain who will plague Superman in his later years. Expand

    Again, I'm giving an 8 out of 10 score. The 2 points down are for some of the acting to resemble that of a daytime soap-opera full of characters talking to each others backs and having elongated staring instead of actually answering one another's questions. PLEASE Smallville directors - STOP this shoddy blocking immediately! People in the reality face one-another when having a conversation & no, it isn't 'clever' filming technique. As for the storyline - lovely & dramatic, never a dull a moment, almost. This brings me to the 2nd point marked down. A 1940's episode? Really? Ok, so every tv show & its dog have done a 1940's episode whereby a character sleeps or is knocked unconscious while watching old movies. Boring, seen it before and it does NOT further the storyline. In short, miss this episode & you've missed nothing. BORING!
    Lana Lang finally dies - THANK GOD! That was long overdue. Lets just hope they don't pull a daytime soap storyline with her faking her own death. If so, unimaginative! Get it?
