Smallville: The Complete Sixth Season (DVD)
Clark Kent and Lex Luthor. They tried to be friends. But their chosen paths set them on a collision course. The rivalry explodes into the fierce good-versus-evil battle fans have long expected in Season Six of the spectacular series that reinterprets the characters and events of Superman mythology from its very roots. Adding to the supercharged rivalry: Lana Lang becomes Mrs. Luthor. And the secret behind the reason she says yes will leave Clark reeling. But that's not all that's ready to rock Clark's world. Oliver Queen – aka The Green Arrow (recurring star Justin Hartley) – forms a League of Super Heroes to take down LuthorCorp. Will Clark sign on? Then, there are all those pesky Phantom Zone escapees menacing Earth. Can Clark stop them? And LuthorCorp expands its dark genetic experiments with the "meteor freaks." Will an awesome kryptonite-powered army be the result? The answers – and the excitement – are all here in twenty-two out-of-this world episodes!]]>
Picking up where its fifth season left off, Smallville's sixth season begins with Metropolis in ruins, Clark (Tom Welling) trapped in the Phantom Zone, and General Zod inhabiting the body of Lex (Michael Rosenbaum). Even when that situation, dubbed "Black Thursday," is over, Clark still has to capture the criminals who escaped from the Phantom Zone. Meanwhile, having driven away Lana (Kristin Kreuk), she finds comfort in the home and arms of Lex, driving further anxiety into that romantic triangle that has expanded to include Chloe (Allison Mack, still with a smile that lights up the orb on top of the Daily Planet) and her new beau, photographer Jimmy Olsen (Aaron Ashmore). And Lois (Erica Durance)? We see hints of her inevitable future in her becoming a reporter for the tabloid rag The Inquisitor ("The thrill of discovery, the clack of the keys, the scent of fresh ink I think I've finally found my calling!") and flashing some sparks with Clark especially in a Valentine's Day episode called "Crimson."
She also finds a new boyfriend in Oliver Queen (Justin Hartley), a tycoon who moves from Star City to Metropolis and revives a boarding-school rivalry with Lex. But Queen is also a superhero, the Green Arrow, and he's out to thwart Lex's project called 33.1, which runs tests on meteor-powered humans. And in an awesome episode called "Justice," the Green Arrow gathers his team--Bart Allen (Kyle Gallner), a.k.a. Impulse (a change after he was first called the Flash); Arthur "AC" Curry (Alan Ritchson), a.k.a. Aquaman; and Victor Stone (Lee Thompson Young), a.k.a. Cyborg (who had all appeared in the series before)--with Clark to shut down Lex. Yet another hero from the comic books--an interplanetary detective (Phil Morris)--helps Clark fight rogue Kryptonians. It all ends in a slam-bang finale with a number of surprises. Even though the Lana drama went on too long, Green Arrow and some choice episodes stuff made this one of Smallville's best seasons. Guest stars include Tori Spelling as a nosy gossip reporter and Lynda "Wonder Woman" Carter as Chloe's mom. --David Horiuchi

Edited 26 Mar 2011: I just saw this and the previous epi again. I have to say that these last 2 episodes (end of season 5 and epi 1 season 6) are the episodes which cemented my real dislike of the Lana character. The objection that I always had about her was that despite all the good that Clark did, she couldn't see that he truly was a GOOD person. All she saw was that he never completely opened up to her about things she believed were secretive. Clark being closed off meant that he was not a person to be trusted in Lana's eyes and I never "got" this part of her belief system. Everyone surrounding Clark, with exception of Lex, were good people and yet she could only see Clark's secretive self. She couldn't seem to see that other people believed and trusted in Clark and that they considered him to be a good person. How was this possible? When she gravitated towards Lex I was outright angry. Even though I knew she would one day be out of the picture and that Lois Lane would be Clark's girlfriend, I still got angry at the way Lana treated Clark...with outright disrespect. There were moments in season 4 where it was clear to her that Lex could not be trusted but....she still gravitated towards him. There were moments before she married Lex that she clearly saw Lex lying but she still agreed to marry him? Again, how is this possible? I don't give credit to the way Clark broke up with her as reason for her gravitation towards Lex. Maybe it wasn't poor story writing but instead the writer's desire to show that Lana was not the ONE for Clark because of this weakness in her character. Even what she does in the few episodes we see her in Season 7 are an indicator, to me, of how wrong she was for Clark and how weak she truly was as a character. This is why I don't understand why people prefer her to Lois. Don't get me wrong, she and Clark has some great moments together but her core self is not someone that I would like. If anything, there was a real dishonesty in her own self that she didn't seem to recognize. Anyway, just wanted to say how I dislike her character...at least in this series.
Season seven boasts some inspired casting: pro-wrestlers Batiska and Kane play Phantom Zone escapees intent on doing bodily harm to "the last son of Krypton; Torrie Spelling is wicked as meteor freak that uses her abilities to get the scoop on stories, making her a danger to all; former "Wonder Woman" Linda Carter guests as Chloe's (the remarkable Allison Mack) mother; and rapper Bow Wow portrays a teen possessed by a phantom that also has designs to rid the world of Clark Kent.
The best episodes are "Zod," "Arrow," "Reunion," "Hydro," "Noir," the popular "Justice," "Labyrinth," "Crimson," "Freak," "Promise," and "Nemesis."
Though this season will prove to be the last for Annette O'Toole as Martha Kent, the actress will be featured memorably in several episodes of the season.
This DVD also has some great extras. Because this season saw the introduction of Green Arrow, the DVD has two Arrow features - a CGI "origin" and a history of the character - and both are well made. The documentary on fans is just as engaging, providing background on those fans that have elevated the show to cult status.
"Smallville - The Complete Sixth Season" is, indeed, super, worthy of the show and the legacy of the character. Hopefully, the eighth season will be just as rewarding.
One can only hope that this year's season finale will recapture the spark of the previous six years, giving just the right "set-up" for next season.
