Season Four of SMALLVILLE saw the major characters all beginning to make the transition from adolescence to adulthood, reflecting the beginnings of the show itself to begin the transition to the next level. The fundamental challenge for the show has been to reinvent the "Superboy" years by conceiving Clark Kent as a work in progress, a profoundly gifted young man gradually gaining use of and control over powers that makes him utterly unique but also alienates him from his friends by the need to keep his abilities secret. During each season he has discovered new abilities, first X-ray vision, then heat vision, then super hearing to go with the super strength, speed, and invulnerability that he has long possessed. Plus the hints of the impending ability to fly. The difference between SMALLVILLE and the Superboy comics I read growing up is that the latter were always utterly ahistorical, intentionally oblivious to everything that would take place for the adult Clark Kent. There was Lana Lang, but no reflection on how things would go with them, how they would fail to forge a permanent attachment, how Clark would later focus his attention on Lois Lane instead. To its credit, SMALLVILLE has always proceeded with one eye cocked towards the future. In this season, the show began what could be a metamorphosis into a more mature show. I would not at all be surprised if in the next year or so SMALLVILLE were cancelled and a new show, perhaps called METROPOLIS, would be taking its place, with a small number of characters making the transition to the new show: Clark, Lex, Lionel, Lois, and perhaps Chloe, with guest appearances by some Smallville regulars.Read more ›

As a huge Smallville fan, I'm very disappointed by season 4 thus far. Granted as I write this the finale has yet to air, but even if its a grand slam episode it can't shake off what has been multiple episodes of idiocy, absurdity, and contrivance.

I've been watching my season 1 and 2 sets lately, and am amazed at how much depth and character interaction were in those early episodes. The kryptonite monsters sucked, but those episodes were held together by strong relationships that made Smallville feel real. Most of this is lost by season 4. This year, we get a storyline about kryptonian artifacts that Clark must recover. Not a bad idea, but somehow Lana has a witch ancestor trapped in her body who is also seeking the magic rocks. What was intended as a storyline to bring her closer into the mythology only pushes her farther away. I like Kristen Kruek, but she spends most of the season distrustful of Clark, Lex, her new boyfriend Jason, and just about everyone else. The sweetness we fell in love with only returns at the tail end of the season. What happened to Lana?

In fact, what's happened to everyone else? The absurd storyline seems to give everyone nothing to do, which is odd considering the talented cast. An interesting twist with John Glover's Lionel Luthor is rendered moot by the season's end, and he and Michael Rosenbaum's Lex are wasted on the soap opera drama of the artifacts hunt. The Kent parents don't show up as much as they used to, and when they do they spout an endless string of cliched parental advice. Jensen Ackles is Jason Teague, the new disposable supporting character. I like him, and he's an asset to the show, but he's not given much to do.
