Trivia

This episode has occasionally been stitched up with the pilot to form a feature-length episode. This has led to some people noticing a continuity error in the length of Tom Welling's hair as the actor had about five inches cut off in between the two episodes. Welling had to wear hair extensions for most of his close-ups. See more »

Indicates the new direction of young Superman
2 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Metamorphosis" indicates that "Smallville" is going to be much more of a supernatural take than we've seen in the life of teenaged Clark Kent. This show conveys that is the idea: citizens of the town mutated produces dramatic repercussions and drives the induced citizens often into mind warp.

A young bug collector finds that his insects are induces by a strange sort of glowing-green toxin, found on their bodies and on the rocks on which the insects live. The toxin causes the insects to go haywire on the boy, causing the boy to live and think like an insect. For the second time ever, Clark Kent saves the day, a scene seen many times to come.
