A great episode
21 December 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

One of the best episodes of Season One, if a little different. I enjoyed this episode very much and as you might guess, it involves the discovery of kryptonite, but that's not the only new element in the series as Lois learns more about Clark's private life I guess you could say, she meets his parents and also, it involves the return of an old foe, Jason Trask. He's not a bad villain as far as the villains go on L&C. However, there have been better ones. Perhaps a bit biased but John Shea was good as Lex. He had such a deep personality about him that was only partially explored. Still, back to the episode, a very good entry in the first season.
