Storyline

The numerous miraculous rescues by the local wonder boy Clark Kent (Tom Welling) have aroused suspicions amongst colonials of Smallville, Kansas. 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 (Annette O'Toole) and Jonathan Kent (John Schneider) on the day of an infamous meteor shower, and subsequently adopted. Clark's friend Lex Luthor (Michael Rosenbaum), the only heir of LuthorCorp, has been secretly investigating grounds for Clark's outlandish valor. However, on the face of it, Clark just seems to be a normal boy who's slightly more secretive than usual. Written by Abhinav Madaan

Trivia

Although he played the lead character, Tom Welling admitted in interviews that he is not a fan of the Superman comic books. However, Welling believed his lack of knowledge on the character mythology actually helped his portrayal of Clark Kent. See more »

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

Clark Kent: I didn't dive in after Lex's car! It hit me at 60 miles an hour! Does that sound normal to you? I'd give anything to be normal.

Impressive
24 January 2002 | by BHorrorWriterSee all my reviews

Someone over at the WB must have finally pulled their head out of their A$$.

Smallville, is a very intriguing, genuine, original show with intelligent characters, superb acting, excellent story lines, and the ability to be the new best show to ever come out of WB...Buffy being the first.

Tom Welling shines as Clark Kent. This virtual nobody is dynamic on the screen. His raven colored hair, and big blue eyes, and exception physique make him perfect eye candy for anyone and everyone. However, his acting is stand out as well as his looks. He isn't someone that is resting on his looks to get him somewhere in Hollywood. Though, he very well could.

John Schneider is back on the small screen in a big way. Though, the show doesn't focus on him or his character, it is good to see him in this show...as well, Annette O'Toole give a great performance as Clark's mother.

Michael Rosenbaum blows up as Lex Luther. I haven't really followed his career. I really have only seen him in Urban Legend. He delivers the deception, and human evil that is Lex Luther.

I really think WB has stumbled onto something good. FINALLY!! How many garbage shows are now on, or have been cancelled from the WB. Too many...I think they really have something here...I hope to see this show go thru the roof!

10 out of 10
