Product Description

Smallville: The Complete First Season (DVD)

Amazon.ca

The venerable Superman mythos gets a 21st-century updating in this imaginative and engaging television series from the WB Network, and series fans can celebrate the ratings success of Smallville with a six-disc set that compiles its entire first season. The deluxe package offers a chance to revisit the origins of the characters and their numerous plotlines, as well as view deleted scenes and other bonus features.

The premise of Smallville--Superman as a teenager--takes up just a few pages in Superman's very first comic book appearance (in Action Comics back in 1938), but series producers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar flesh out that period by portraying young Clark Kent (Tom Welling) not as the noble Superman-in-waiting, but as an average teen with some not-so-ordinary supernatural powers, including incredible strength and heat vision (Clark hasn't lifted up, up, and away as of yet). Clark's desire to fit in with his peers and make sense of his extraordinary abilities ground him in very realistic and identifiable terms for the series' primarily under-25 audience, as does his appealing and tentative romance with Kristen Kreuk as Clark's dreamgirl Lana Lang. But Smallville also strikes gold when it takes a turn towards more comic book territory, as evidenced by the parade of shape-shifting killers and other outlandish antagonists (many generated, in one of the series' most ingenious notions, by the same devastating meteor shower that brought the infant Clark to Earth) that Clark must harness his powers to face and defeat. Gough and Millar, along with their capable cast (which includes Michael Rosenbaum as a young and already bald-pated Lex Luthor, and Annette O'Toole and John Schneider as the Kents) manage to pull off the precarious high-wire act of combining science fiction with coming-of-age drama to create this highly watchable program.

Smallville: The Complete First Season offers a very complete and attractive DVD package that is rounded out by some highly desirable extras for longtime series fans. The six-disc set offers all 21 episodes of the first season, including the pilot, in widescreen anamorphic format; Gough and Millar are featured on the set's sole commentary track, which appears on the pilot episode. Viewers can also access a number of deleted scenes from various episodes as well as view original pre-production storyboards and WB promotional spots. An interactive "tour" of Smallville rounds out the extras, but DVD-ROM owners can use the discs to access more features via the Smallville web site. --Paul Gaita

I've read the first 50 reviews of "Smallville" with great interest and amusement. Happily, I was able to enjoy
"Smallville" from the very first episode (which "hooked
me," as one writer noted). Having recently retired from teaching
philosophy and logic courses at a nearby college (I'm 74 years
young}, I think that qualifies me as having a mature intellect
(certainly beyond the 12-30 age range}. I have always enjoyed fantasy and have a large collection of science fiction and fantasy pulp magazines (comics too!) although my main reading over the last 40 years has been science, evolution, and the Philosophy of Religion and the Philosophy of Science.
I'm not ashamed to admit that I have enjoyed the first three seasons of "Smallville," which touched the youngster in me. I agree with the writer who said that the series got noticeably better after the first season. I'm going to buy all of the seasons (if the third season is released on DVD}.

Format: DVD
This is an awful show. It spits on ages of Superman continuity, and insults the viewer while doing it. Think of it as a teen-angst X-Files, but with super powers and the whole "can't let them find out I have powers" angle. The dialogue is cheesy, the effects are mediocre, and the plots are just absurd- Evem for comic book properties. If you're a comic book fan, avoid this show. It's an awful example of WB's ability to abuse their DC Comics properties, much like the failed "Birds of Prey" and the last several Batman movies. The only modern Superman worth watching is on the Cartoon Network's "Justice League" and in the animated Superman series from the 90's. With "Smallville", much like with Batman, WB uses the Superman name to advertise a character that in NO WAY resembles the one from the comics, but instead is made to be familiar to people who watched the Superman movies, or Lois & Clark (which was also terrible). Adding the Dawson's Creek angle to Superboy just makes it vomit-worthy. A great show if you're a 14-year-old girl.

Format: DVD
I was an avid comic collector (and I still collect some now) and Superman has always been the most monkeyed-with character. But "Smallville" has gone too far.
Maudlin and silly, this continuity-busting show is simply "Dawson's Creek" with teenage Superman thrown in + 1 black helper character (all the networks got in trouble for color-less programming so I thought that I would mention him). You can almost hear the female teeny-boppers go "OOOOH!" when they see Supes in his flannel shirt; too bad that he is such a TERRIBLE actor.
To keep the young, male demographic interested, the show parades some 25 year old looking "teenage" girls around the set and has them pout their lips and whine out some insipid dialog every once in a while. Then their performance stops when Mr. Boring, the teenage Superman, starts giving the beat-down to the villian-of-the-week.
Just awful.

When I heard they were coming out with a new Superman television show back in 2001, I was thrilled. I had watched Lois & Clark religiously, so to learn that Supes was back, but this time exploring his pre-Superman years as a mild-mannered teen in Smallville, well, needless to say I was pumped, and Season One of Smallville didn't disappoint.

We got our first glimpses of Clark's developing superpowers, how he and Lex met and the friendship that would later help forge the greatest archrivalry of all time, Clark's Kryptonian heritage and more. Likewise, to meet Lana Lang for the first time and not just as a mere movie character but someone who--if you know even a chunk of the Superman backstory--made a huge impact on Clark as he grew up was especially interesting.

I remember watching the season finale and flipping out over the cliffhanger ending.

I've been watching the series ever since, every week, barely missing an episode.

Check this series out if you haven't already. This stuff is good. Real good.

I normally watch television in spurts. I sit down when I have time, turn it on, and watch whatever is on. I have Never found a show that got me so addicted that I would actually HAVE to plan my week AROUND watching the new episodes. That is until Smallville!
After having watched almost the entire Season 1 (but having missed a few episodes), I am dieing for the DVD release of Smallville. The series is amazing, showing the early life of Clark Kent and his adolescent adventures as he makes his way to becoming superman. I especially love the romance (or lack of romance :) between him and Lana Lang (Kristin Kreuk). I think she is the most beautiful girl I have ever seen.
If you haven't watched smallville, you definately need to! I can sit here babbling on about how great it is for hours, but if you REALLY want to fully enjoy smallville, wait for this DVD release so you can start from the beginning! Everything makes a whole lot more sense that way.
The funny thing is I didn't know that it was filmed in my home city Vancouver until after getting addicted to it. That just made me want to watch it even more!
