Smallville: The Complete Seventh Season (BD)]]>
Super-sexy and super-flirty, Clark's super-cousin Kara (Laura Vandervoot) made the splashiest addition to the cast in Smallville's season 7. Unfortunately for Clark (Tom Welling), she's more advanced in her powers than he is (she can fly), and she's not the kind to shy away from drawing attention to herself, whether it's in a skimpy bikini or garnering notice from Lex (Michael Rosenbaum) and Jimmy (Aaron Ashmore, joining the opening credits). Chloe (Allison Mack, rightfully moving ahead of Erica Durance in the credits) is trying to come to terms with her "meteor freak" powers, and Lois (Durance) is dallying with the new Daily Planet editor Grant Gabriel (Michael Cassidy), who has a mysterious past. The dreary drama of Lex and Lana (Kristin Kreuk) is over, and Martha Kent (Annette O'Toole) has permanently departed for Congress, so Lana is now playing house with Clark at the Kent farm. More elements of the DC Comics mythology enter, such as superheroine Black Canary (Alana Huffman), as do guest stars from the universe of Super-entertainment (Lois and Clark's Dean Cain as a doctor who claims to be able to "cure" meteor powers, and Helen "Supergirl" Slater as Clark's Kryptonian mother). Braniac (James Marsters) is still a threat, and Lionel (John Glover) reveals a shady past as part of an order called Veritas, which is purportedly assigned with protecting "the Traveler," an alien who has come to Earth as its salvation. Yet even with the numerous cast comings and goings, the most surprising change happened at the end of the season, when series producers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar announced their departure. Whether that would be a good or bad thing (and whether it would mean an end to their original Smallville edict, "No flights, no tights") would have to be answered in season 8. --David Horiuchi

I will acknowledge that it had a few interesting ideas, such as the introduction of Kara, Clark's meeting with his mother (even if it's a clone), and the chance for Clark to do the 'It's a Wonderful Life' bit, but even such intriguing ideas as the Traveller concept don't make up for the relative let-down in terms of characterisation in this season. Bizarro goes from being a true threat in the first episode to almost a tragic monster when he returns and tries to replace Clark, and things with Clark and Lana are almost pathetic, with Clark desperately hanging on to a relationship he's spent years idealising in his mind while Lana basically manipulates Clark as part of her own plans for revenge against Lex Luthor that never really amount to anything.
The show redeemed itself after this season was over, but I truly felt that this was its weakest year.
This season is a real surprise for fans as it is fast passed (a bit too fast in some cases - too slow in others) and pretty non-stop driving story development. Thanks to the writing team for this.
One of the episodes is centred on photographer Jimmy Olsen, and is cute in its process, providing a good arena to show the vulnerability of his character succumbing to temptations. The only issue I have with this episode is the length of time spent on the dance floor. It became a bit of a show case but not helpful for moving the story along. In situations like this you can tell its padding the script!
But all in all this season comes to a great climax of difficulties, placing Clark in jeopardy along with the human race. You wont be disappointed.
I have to disagree with some reviews and say the picture quality is good. TV BR always seem to have a little 'noise' on the image, this I guess because in film we send the image plates to a de-grain department that reduces that noise, I guess with TV it does not get the same treatment sadly.
