3.0 out of 5 stars Decent season w/highlights, July 11, 2006
This review is from: Smallville: Season 5 (DVD)
Maybe I'm just getting older, but this season lacked edge and excitement level was mediocre. I've always loved the special effects, but they dwelled on the Clark/Lana situation for way too long, Clark's lying got ridiculously lame, and there was a predictable repetitiveness that took away from a very decent season. Definitely better than Season 4, though. I've noticed that in an effort to keep viewership of its near post-teen fans who've watched the show from the beginning, the show has changed from a wholesome family-oriented show, to one with more suggestive themes. Just an impartial observation...

Kristin Kreuk is one of the reasons I started watching the show, but I think the story can evolve if she is written off at some point next season, OR maybe re-work what her role is. Maybe the writers don't know what to do with her long-term, so they put her together with Lex (maybe to give Clark more reason to hate him). I know they have their reasons, but it didn't make the most sense. As for Chloe, her role finally took a step up -- Allison Mack is a great actress, beautiful, and has always been a consistent bright light for the show all 5 seasons.

I'll probably still buy this to show support, and for the 4-5 really well-done episodes.

I rank the seasons (my opinion) in this order: 2, 1, 3, 5, 4
