5.0 out of 5 stars Smallville...big deal!, July 4, 2003
This review is from: Smallville: Season 1 (DVD)
And I mean big deal in the positive sense! I knew that when Smallville first came out on TV, it would either be a phenominal success, or a respunding flop. I'm certainly glad that it fell into the first catigory.
This series has become extremely successful, because of the fact that it has broken away from the traditional views of Superman that we have come to be familiar with, while still following along those very views. This show begins with the familiar rocket that crashes on the outskirts of the Kent Farm, setting the background of some of the characters. Lana Lang watches her perents die in the meteor storm that follows behind the ship, Lex Luthor is in the field where the rocket crashes, and we find his hair burnt to a crisp. Then jumping ahead a few years, to "the present", we learn how Clark Kent, Lana Lang and Lex Luthor all form an uneasy friendship, and how Clark deals with the powers that are bestowed upon him, still uncertain of their source, even we are made to question the source of his powers. But we know one thing, Clark Kent is not Superboy or Superman, he is just an everyday young man with the curse of these powers thrown upon him...
Now, we can see these stories over and over again whenever we want. The First season is finally coming out on DVD, with the ability to switch from the widescreen to the traditional screen, and at a fairly reasonable price you just can't beat.
