Storyline

The numerous miraculous rescues by the local wonder boy Clark have aroused suspicions amongst colonials of Smallville. Interestingly, the boy has managed to downplay his acts of various heroic egresses in the past. They say he's either too fast or has a penchant for finding trouble. He was found by Martha and Jonathan Kent on the day of the Meteor Shower, and subsequently adopted. Clark's friend Lex Luthor, the only heir of Luthorcorp, has been secretly investigating grounds for Clark's outlandish valor. However, on the face of it, Clark just seems a normal boy who's slightly more secretive than usual. Written by Abhinav Madaan

Goofs

In Smallville: Redux, Lana is said to have been born 1986. In Smallville: Crusade, the tombstone of Chloe Sullivan gives her year of birth as 1987. In Smallville: Aqua, Clark identifies himself as 18 (placing his birth in 1987). It is never explained why Lana is in the same class as Clark and Chloe, when she is a year older. See more »

Quotes

Tess Mercer: [Reading Chole's letter to Oliver] Oliver, I never thought I'd have to tell you how I feel about us because the smile on my lips when I looked at you pretty much said it all. But now that you won't be seeing it anymore I'll have to use words to tell you. I've never loved anyone the way I've loved you and I never will again. You are my brightest star, my knight in shining leather, my hero.

The Saga of Superman gets off to a Promising Start
16 October 2001 | by davidemartinSee all my reviews

I just got finished watching SMALLVILLE and I have to say that I'm impressed. Sure, people are going to dismiss it as a Dawson's Creek/ Roswell clone but... oh.... SO WHAT?

The acting is good. The cast are mostly well-chosen (although an Amerindian* Lana and a black Pete Ross took a little getting used to). AND, unlike the big budget film versions of Superman and Batman, this series' creators seem to have actually looked at the source material AND USED IT!

Watching the original Chris Reeve flick, I was always interested in seeing more of the Smallville briefly shown in that film's first half hour. Now, Nielsen willing, we'll have five years' worth of a look!

Which makes me want to make a prediction here-- if the series goes the full five or seven years, the final year ends with Clark finally taking his place as Superman.

Okay, that's a "well, DUH" prediction but somebody had to make it!

-------------------- (* Post script two years later-- at the time I wrote this, there was virtually nothing available on Miss Kreuk. Since her exotic looks reminded me of Native Americans I know, i assumed she was one as well. And since Pete Ross in the comics is blond, the casting of Sam Jones was a surprise. A nice one, as he grew on me quite a lot. Too bad his character was so underutilized that Jones left the show.)
