Show 101: Smallville


SHOW: Smallville


NOW SHOWING: Season Nine premieres Friday, September 25 at 8 pm


AIRS: Fridays at 8 pm, CW


WHY YOU MIGHT LOVE IT:

It's the origin story of Superman with some CW-style flair. Plus, it features great appearances by characters from the DC Comics universe.


WHY YOU MIGHT HATE IT:

It isn't exactly the big-budget superhero affair we're used to seeing in special-effects blockbusters on the big screen.


THE PREMISE:

Any comic fan worth his or her weight in Cheez Whiz knows the show derives its name from the fictional town Clark Kent/Superman grew up in. The series follows a young Clark while he's still confused about his alien heritage and the whole being faster-than-a-speeding-bullet thing. Over Smallville's eight seasons, Clark has bumped into several other characters from the Superman comics -- including the Justice League -- but has yet to don the familiar blue and red costume (he does have a sweet blue shirt and red jacket combo, though). Smallville isn't a show about a young Superman doing young Superman things; it's about a man trying to make sense of his background, to use his powers for good, and to experience the normal-life things every young stud goes through while living in America's weirdest town.


WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:

Season Eight ended with Lois Lane in some other time-space, Jimmy Olsen murdered, the Justice League in trouble, and Superma -- I mean "The Red-Blue Blur," his current persona -- whooping Doomsday. Season Nine will continue this arc, as Clark finally comes to accept and embrace his role as a superhero; he'll even take a step closer to becoming Superman by wearing the iconic "S." He's kind of a jerk about it, though, insisting he isn't human anymore and that Clark Kent is dead. As a result, he'll shun many of his confidantes, including longtime friend Chloe Sullivan. One sign this will be a good season: Zod returns in a major way!

I love Smallville its my familys favorite show and in my opinion its probably the best show thats ever been on T.V. Please dont ever stop smallville it truely is a great show. I live in South Carolina all my friends love this show I've even gotten the rest of my family watching it. A very close friend told me about this show and ever since I've been addicted. People don't always have time to watch T.V but I know about 15 people that buy the seasons every year. Keep it up Smallville there are alot of supporters out there I truely believe this show can pass the test of time.

Smallville has long since outlived it's splendor and should've ended a while back.
