Did You Know?


The song that Whitney and Lana dance to when checking out the gym before the Spring Formal, is the song Everything by Lifehouse. This song was previously used in the Pilot episode when Whitney drops off Lana at the end of the night. The Pilot also featured the characters going to a dance in that episode. See more »


in the closing scene when Clark sees Lana in the truck he shouts her name, you can clearly see a filling on the bottom left of his mouth. being the man of steel surely he would not get cavities. See more »


Chloe Sullivan: I have this horrible nightmare that you are gonna rush to the bus station after Whitney leaves and profess your undying love for Lana, and I'm gonna be waiting at the gym all alone. And if you do that to me, Clark, I will never speak to you again. Okay? I said it.
Clark Kent: Chloe, I'm going to the dance with you not by default, but because I want to.

The Weakest Season, But a Solid Stary
29 October 2016 | by themanofhopeSee all my reviews

Smallville: Season 1 is the start of a great origin story for superman. The show is actually the best superhero show I have ever seen and the first season is no exception. The effects are actually great for a made for TV program and the acting is amazing especially from Michael Rosenbaum who plays Lex Luthor. The weakest actor in the first season is probably Lana Lang, who is played by Kristin Kreuk but after a couple of episodes she starts to get the hang of it. The biggest bugger in the season would probably be that their are way to many filler episodes and not enough continuous plot. But I could understand that coming from a show that just started but the freak of the weak story lines get old, fast and some of the action sequences are way too short. But the show is just so down to earth, relatable and fun to watch that the viewer forgets about the flaws and digs right into the excitement. The best episodes in the season were probably the pilot, rogue,leech, nicodemus and the finale. The worst episodes were probably craving and reaper. Otherwise the show is a great start to the superman legend with great casting, visual effects and just being so much fun. I'm giving season 1 of Smallville a 7.6/10.
