Show Summary

Smallville tells the tale of a teenage Clark Kent in the days before he was Superman. It is the town where he came from where very strange things started happening with his arrival in a spaceship in the midst of a meteor storm of green rocks. Clark must deal with a variety of individuals given powers by the green rocks, keep his powers a secret, cope with his friendship with a young Lex Luthor, and balance the two girls in his life, Chloe and Lana. The show also shows us how Lex Luthor develops from a friend of Clark's and kinda-okay guy to (presumably) the villain who will plague Superman in his later years.

    • Clana Overrated

      10
      I wouldn't get caught up in Clana, being near the end of season 9, I already prefer Clois, and was much more excited and Clois's first kiss than Clanas. However, Clana does go through many bumps, ending horrificaly. It doesn't effect you as much as you thought it would though, Clark doesn;t take it very bad, therefore you don't. I think Clark and Lois are meant to be, way more than Clark and Lana. I don't realy know where it will go at this point, however, i have heard that they get married, so I have a lot to look forward to in the near future. This is a grat tv series, you would love this especially if you like things like The Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl (Which all 3 make appearances in, The Arrow being the most significant).moreless

      Terrific, lots of variety, wide range of powers, plenty of villain of the week arcs, homely feel, cool references, loveable characters, the performance and character: Lionel Luthor, conflicted Clark with his morals and relationships, pretty cool action sequences. Complaint, I never liked Clark acting like Flash with his speed.

      I really liked the show but the Lana character got really annoying. I can't watch seasons 5-7 because of the Clark, Lana, Lex storyline. I read the message from brandonsmith503 and have a question about the purpose of Lana's character. If she wasn't a main character in the "general" superman story-line, why was she such a central character in Smallville? And why did they put her and Clark together for most of the series and finally put Lois and Clark together by season 9? Why did they wait so long?moreless
    • Some information from someone that was part of the writers and on-set crew

      Alright this message goes out to the members such as tj-tv, osazeeprinzo, etc. I was part of the on-set team of Smallville and have talked to Alfred Gough and Miles Miller on numerous occasions. When writing Smallville they were faced with 2 options. One stick to the "general" superman story-line and have their hands tied writing wise by restricting them to sticking to that story line ONLY or number 2 they can step out of the "general" superman story-line and not be restricted of what they can write about. When beginning writing the show 2 things were said to be set into stone. First being we will not see him fly and the second being we will not see him in the suit. Now even though we changed that at the finale slightly and we saw him briefly fly and in the suit Smallville was created to show Clark Kent's life prior to him becoming the "Man of That was the whole point. In response to sheena115 Chloe was part of "our" story-line. Ultimately Clark is to be with Lois Lane this is why Chloe was fired from the Daily Planet to bring the Lois and Clark characters together. This is the reason why Tom Welling was not chosen to be in the "Man of Steel" films because we with we being us as well as DC and WB decided to keep the television world and movie world separate and not intertwine characters from one to the other. I hope this helped explain why the show ended how it did and if any other questions arise don't hesitate to ask. I will check frequently. Thank you to all the Smalllville fans. As a side note, we are attempting to find a way to bring the entire series of Smallville to Blu-Ray instead of seasons 6-10 only.moreless
