Smallville: The Complete Third Season DVD includes fan favorite episodes such as "Exile," "Resurrection" and the cliff-hanging season finale "Covenant." The season features several key moments where Clark is torn between his personal and heroic lifestyle including: his breakup with Lana, Chloe's near death experience and his mysterious encounters with Dr. Swann. In addition, friendships are optimistically renewed when Clark discovers Lex has survived a deadly jet crash. However, as Lionel draws Lex closer, Jonathon fears that Lex will one day emulate Lionel's devious ways.
Truth, identity, and responsibility are the cornerstones of Smallville's exceptional third season. When viewers left Clark (Tom Welling) at the end of season 2, he was feeling his oats in Metropolis with the help of a red Kryptonite ring, but by the opening of season 3, he must return to Smallville to not only help his parents save their farm, but seek some resolution in his relationships with Lana (Kristin Kreuk) and Lex (Michael Rosenbaum), who's returned from his abandonment at the conclusion of the previous season. Lex himself must deal with some shocking revelations regarding his relationship with his sinister father Lionel (John Glover, magnetic as always), and Lana becomes involved with a new figure in town, the mysterious Adam Knight (Lost's Ian Somerholder), who may or may not be a certain caped crusader. And speaking of heroes in disguise, the season's finale introduces Kara, a young woman with powers similar to Clark's--could she in fact be his sister, known best to comic book fans as Supergirl? Season 3 is chock full of such intriguing moments, including an appearance by future Daily Planet editor Perry White (Michael McKean, the real-life husband of series star Annette O'Toole) in "Perry," helmed by Supergirl film director Jeannot Szwarc; the return of villains Jonathan Taylor Thomas, Shawn Ashmore, and Jesse Metcalfe from seasons 1 and 2 (in "Asylum"); the departure of series regular Samuel L. Jones; and a intrigue-fraught final turn by Christopher Reeve as Dr. Swann ("Legacy").
The boxed set matches the high quality of the season with some terrific extras, including commentary on three episodes by series creators Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, along with Rosenbaum, Allison Mack (Chloe), and Glover. Gough and Millar also contribute commentary to a battery of deleted scenes, and Mack's "Chloe Chronicles" returns for another go-round. The supplemental features are rounded out by a behind-the-scenes featurette, an amusing gag reel, and an Easter egg with Rosenbaum conducting some offbeat interviews. --Paul Gaita

This season also showed how evil Lionel Luthor really was and how he stopped at nothing--utterly nothing--to create his empire and, eventually, receive power that most definitely, in this case, fell into the wrong hands.
Clark got a new superpower, this time his super hearing, which was done way cool and not just some fire-drill-like noise ringing in his ears.
I loved this season despite how bleak it was and was thrilled to death when Christopher Reeve reprised his role as Dr. Virgil Swann. The mythology episodes in this season made me grin ear-to-ear, making my inner fanboy squeal like a girl.
This season was great and had a cliffhanger that made me want to kick in my TV. What a long summer that one was.
Year Three was awesome. Go see it.
Every episode is good, and many of them are stellar, particularly "Exile" (the premiere with Clark still strung out on red kryptonite and Tom Welling giving an outstanding performance as the devil-may-care Clark-under-the-influence) and "Memoria" (a brilliant episode that contributes to the complexity of the Lex Luthor character and is one of the best episodes in the entire series). Admittedly, the Clark-Lana relationship rollercoaster in this season seems to drive some fans crazy, but if you like Smallville, you need to own this set.
The extras are pretty decent and the gag reel is hilarious. I heard there is even an Easter egg, but I haven't found it yet.
