4.0 out of 5 stars Smallville forever!, August 1, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Smallville: Season 9 (DVD)
Smallville has been a wonderful, iconic show, and I will miss it when it's gone. I'm sure Tom Welling would like to do other roles, though, and it will be interesting to watch his career.

Season 9 found it's stride again after a less than stellar season 8. There were a few plot points I didn't understand, though. They never explained WHY the yellow sun did not affect Zod and crew the way it does Clark, and why the red sun would give them powers and take away Clark's. Maybe I just missed the reasoning, and I'll catch it whan I see the DVD.

The Clark/Lois romance heats up in this season, and that's been fun. Lois, played beautifully by Erica Durance, begins to come into her own as a reporter, and as a woman. She wants a guy who is her own personal hero, but she's still distracted by the Blur.

I wasn't crazy about the casing of the Zod character (apparently all Kryptonians have British accents and overact), but it was an interesting story line.

And, true to form, the season ends in a big huge cliffhanger ... I've been worried about Clark all summer ... =)

I hope this DVD set has more in the way of commentaries and extra features, esp gag reels, than some of the more recent seasons have had. That's my main reason for purchasing them, after all.

They did explain why the yellow sun didn't affect the Kandorians. Watch the season again. IIRC the Kandorians were clones, and because their DNA was all screwed up, the yellow sun had the opposite affect on the Kandorians that it had on Clark. However, also unlike Clark, the Red Sun empowered the Kandorians whereas it de-powered Clark. This is why, in the future vision that Lois saw where the Red Sun had orbited over Earth, the Kandorians were powerful and Clark wasn't. Basically, their Kryptonian DNA worked the exact opposite way that Clark's did. Hope I helped.

Episode 7-Kandor explains why they don't have powers. Their DNA was put in the orb, but then Jor-El puts a blue crystal (blue kryptonite) into the orb so they wouldn't have powers. If they did have their powers they would be too powerful for earth and destroy everyone.
