It's hard to believe that this show has gone on for 9 years, but the writing and the acting just keep getting better. Just like the last season, Clark Kent is one step closer to his destiny as Superman. The big overarching plot this season was the threat of the Kandorians, led by Major Zod. Smallville fans will recognize the name, if not the rank, of the big bad guy. That's because he's a clone of the evil traitor who tried to overthrow Krypton around the time Kal-El (Clark) was born. So he's going to be the worst villian in Kryptonian history, maybe. It's the reoccuring Smallville theme of destiny and fate. If you are destined to do something, do you do it or make your own destiny? Clark has been told since season 1 that he is destined to be this great hero and champion and symbol of hope. Most of the main plots of every season are about Clark finding out about his destiny and what he does to either embrace it or fight against it. So it is with the bad guys. Lex Luthor is destined to be Superman's arch-enemy. So even though we saw 5-6 seasons of Lex trying to overcome his dark nature and maintain some kind of friendship with Clark, we knew he was eventually going to be bad. Same with Davis Bloome, aka Doomsday. He was trying to fight his nature of being the ultimate destroyer. But ultimately, he, too, had to succomb to his destiny. In this season, it is Zod. This "Major Zod" has not made all the bad choices that "General Zod" did back on Krypton. But we know what he is to become. Will he make the same choices or will he change his fate?

The main highlights for me were the so-called "filler" episodes that focused more on Lois and Clark's budding relationship than on the threat of the Kandorians.

I am ECSTATIC that Smallville has been renewed for Season 10! Not only is it good entertainment, but it's a refreshing diversion from all the murder/mystery solving cop shows and vampire shows we have been inundated with (excluding The Mentalist) of course. :)

I have all seasons of Smallville on DVD and really enjoy watching it again and again from Episode 1. There's great chemistry between Clark and Lois..Clark gets to let his guard down and be real, and Lois...well, Erica Durance is the PERFECT choice for Lois...she cracks me up! It's just fun watching them together. Chloe and Oliver have great chemistry, as well..I'm liking it. :)

You know, whether or not Clark wears the tights and red cape and flies is really up to the writers, and I have read somewhere that if and when this happens, it will be at the end of Season 10...can't wait!! Tom Welling, is the PERFECT Clark Kent...he's big and strong, and has the perfect looks...actually, he's one of the most beautiful men to ever walk the earth.

I hate that the bashers, with 1 star ratings, have brought Smallville's ratings down....it's an AMAZING show with absolutely AMAZING actors...ZOD, TESS, OLIVER, LEX, LIONEL, MARTHA, JOHN...I could go on and on.

As I said, I can't WAIT for Season 10. A lot of characters will be returning and lot's of good (and bad) things happening...it should be good, fun entertainment, and well deserving of a 5-Star rating!

Some people will say that this show fell off after the 5-6 season and it indeed did lose a lot of its viewers during those seasons. However I think that seasons 8-10 were actually really good and I have watched every episode and bought every season. This season is really quite good and it really positions Clark to getting ready to don the red cape. If you were a fan of earlier seasons and stopped following the show I would really give the later seasons (after the awful season 7 super girl debacle) another chance.

This was such a great beginning to season 9. I enjoyed every bit of it. I'm one of those that actually likes this darker side of Clark Kent. It just makes him seem more "human" to have these emotions at war with each other. I also like his new "costume" if you want to call it that. I know some didn't like the departure from the traditional colors of red, blue, yellow but I loved it. And I never once thought of the Matrix costume until someone else mentioned it. I simply enjoyed this darker representation of Clark Kent. The end to this episode was perfect. It grabbed you and made you wonder what's coming next. Thanks Smallville. Another great episode.

I've watched Smallville since the beginning. I'm really glad there's going to be a 10th season, but I hope there will be more.

The Lana drama is over since last season(two season to late). I really feel that she dragged the show down after a certain point, as her story became more about the men she dated and the drama associated with them.

For me the show took on a new life, a fresher one this season. The Lois and Clark drama finally took full swing this season, something long awaited since season 4.

All of the allusions to the comics are great. This is the show that led me into the rabbit hole of DC comics. I've seen nearly every single Superhero movie out there now. And I've read a good many comics starting at Identity Crisis.

I hoped they would show more of the Justice League, and loved the Absolute Justice story line this season. The acting is fantastic. Such a great cast fueled this season, and I'm glad they're mostly coming back.
