Product Description

After a meteor shower bursts from the heavens, raining destruction on the unsuspecting citizens of Smallville, years pass, and the healing process leaves the town's inhabitants with scars and secrets. From the ashes of tragedy, a popular yet awkward teen attempts to decipher the meaning of his life and his clouded past. As he struggles with the transition from boyhood to adulthood, Clark finds that his strength and strange abilities set him uncomfortably apart from his peers.

The venerable Superman mythos gets a 21st-century updating in this imaginative and engaging television series from the WB Network, and series fans can celebrate the ratings success of Smallville with a DVD set that offers a chance to revisit the origins of the characters and their numerous plotlines, as well as view deleted scenes and other bonus features. The premise of Smallville--Superman as a teenager--takes up just a few pages in Superman's very first comic book appearance, but series producers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar flesh out that period by portraying young Clark Kent (Tom Welling) not as the noble Superman-in-waiting, but as an average teen with some not-so-ordinary supernatural powers, including incredible strength and heat vision. Clark's desire to fit in with his peers and make sense of his extraordinary abilities ground him in very realistic and identifiable terms for the series' primarily under-25 audience, as does his appealing and tentative romance with Kristen Kreuk as Clark's dreamgirl Lana Lang. But Smallville also strikes gold when it takes a turn towards more comic book territory, as evidenced by the parade of shape-shifting killers and other outlandish antagonists (many generated, in one of the series' most ingenious notions, by the same devastating meteor shower that brought the infant Clark to Earth) that Clark must harness his powers to face and defeat. Gough and Millar, along with their capable cast (which includes Michael Rosenbaum as a young and already bald-pated Lex Luthor, and Annette O'Toole and John Schneider as the Kents) manage to pull off the precarious high-wire act of combining science fiction with coming-of-age drama to create this highly watchable program. Smallville: The Complete First Season offers a very complete and attractive DVD package that is rounded out by some highly desirable extras for longtime series fans.

For many fans, the series truly hit its stride in its second season, when it shifted focus from traditional comic book conflicts to one of self-discovery for its hero, a teenage Clark Kent (Tom Welling). Whereas season 1 focused on Clark using his powers to combat a host of menaces, season 2 delved into Clark's past and the extent of his super powers, most notably in the back-to-back "Heat," in which he discovers his heat vision, and "Red," in which red kryptonite in the high school class rings uncorks Clark's less-than-upstanding side. Other plot developments from the season that pull the series in interesting directions include the arrival of Dr. Helen Bryce (Emanuelle Vaugier), who becomes involved with Lex Luthor (Michael Rosenbaum), but the season's most significant moment comes during episode 17, "Rosetta," in which Clark learns of his Kryptonian origins courtesy of a scientist, who, in an effective bit of casting, is played by Superman film star Christopher Reeve. The complexity of the writing and issues dealt with in season 2 marked Smallville as a series with depth and drama worthy of its considerable fan following as well as a second boxed set; fittingly, the supplements in this set are more expansive than on the first one. --Paul Gaita

The popular TV series on the WB channel follows the life of young Clark Kent (Played by Tom Welling) as a teenager. He discovers his amazing super-powers, grows up with the girl he has a crush on Lana Lang, and develops a friendship with a a evil genius, who will in time become the bald Lex Luthor. The Kryptonite that falls in Smallville with Clark causes some crazy things to happen, giving the young hero plenty of opportunities to save the day and one day become Superman. This
is a great show that I encourage anyone to see. This amazing Box Set has both the first and second season of Smallville. This season 1 set includes a 6 DVD Box set, that includes all 21 episodes, deleted scenes, season 2 sneek peek, and many other extras.

The DVD set has some beautiful interactive menus and this thing is loaded with extras, which is unusual for a television show on DVD. My only misgivings about it is that the video transfer for season 1 seems a little poor. Not that most people would notice, but when compared to season 2, you can really tell a difference.

WB's new top-rated show, Smallville, has finally hit DVD! For those who are a bit fuzzy on the details, the show revolves around the teenage years of Clark Kent, whose destiny eventually leads him to become Superman. I'm not completely sure of the specs of the disc, but appearantly it includes the Pilot episode and the second episode (Metamorphisis), a deleted scene from the Pilot episode, an audio commentary by the producers, and an interactive map of Smallville.
Admittedly, these two early episodes don't represent the best of what Smallville has to offer. Critics who think of the show as a Buffy/Dawson's Creek clone will have plenty to pick on here: we get a homecoming dance, teen angst over the girl next door (Lana Lang, played by an amazingly beautiful Kristen Kreuk)a 'freak of the week' who can control electricity (and later another one in the 'bugboy' vein), actors way too old to be in high school, and a typical 'Buffy-esque' plot: Boy likes girl. Girl has jealous jock boyfriend. Jealous jock boyfriend strings up boy in cornfield with kryptonite draped around his neck. And yes, the ending is overly sentimental and melodramatic, but like all hollywood teen flicks, it'll still manage to break your heart.
However, the show still offers plenty of good stuff, for both newcomers and devoted Superman fans. The interaction between the characters are dead on, as is casting. The guy from the Dukes of Hazzard and Lana Lang from 'Superman III' (sorry, I can't spell their names) are perfect as Clark's parents. Tom Welling, Clark Kent, besides being a great actor, resembles previous Supermen Dean Cain and Christopher Reeve, and carries on the torch well. You'll forget about how old Welling really is five minutes into the story.
