Smallville: The Complete Ninth Season DVD Review

Smallville: The Complete Ninth Season DVD Review

Synopsis: After a meteor shower bursts from the heavens, raining destruction on the unsuspecting citizens of Smallville, years pass, and the healing process leaves the town's inhabitants with scars and secrets. From the ashes of tragedy, a popular yet awkward teen attempts to decipher the meaning of his life and his clouded past. As he struggles with the transition from boyhood to adulthood, Clark finds that his strength and strange abilities set him uncomfortably apart from his peers. Soaring into its ninth season, this modern retelling of the Superman legend and its classic characters continues to blend realism, action and emotional depth to reveal a new interpretation of the enduring mythology. This season, as Metropolis's clock tower tolls our characters' darkest hour, we find Clark Kent (series star TOM WELLING) finally making his first attempts to embrace his calling as a superhero.

Review: I'll come clean right away and tell you that Smallville is one of my favorite shows on television.  Smallville, House and Fringe are my weekly addictions!  Smallville has hit a fantastic stride now with the ninth season.  The show has finally completely come into it's own and become comfortable with the fact that its about superheroes.  This season brings us the Justice Society and the Kandorians!  We have Zod on earth searching for his powers and complete control of humanity.  Not to mention the drama between Clark and Lois, as she is right on the border of discovering his ultimate secret!

The chemistry between Lois and Clark is finally solid and as they date, their trouble only seems to increase.  Meanwhile, Chloe and Oliver have found a casual romance and Checkmate waits in the shadows to strike!  All this while trying to keep Zod at bay and the Kandorians from creating a future apocalypse of death and destruction!

Smallville will be airing it's tenth and final season this year, starting in a few weeks.  You NEED to get caught up, so you know whats going on.  Season nine ends with a huge cliffhanger, so just picking up on ten won't help you!  This is a phenominal show, I cannot recommend it enough.

The special features on the DVD include: "Kneel Before Zod" featurette: An in-depth look at this dynamic criminal from Krypton, his origins in DC's silver age, and his various appearances in more recent film, animation, and live-action television, "Justice for All" featurette: Meet with Smallville's creative team as they bring the Justice Society of America, one of the comic world's most iconic teams of superheroes, to television for the first time, Cast/creator commentaries on episodes Idol and Kandor and Unaired scenes.

Interest Range: Dc Comics, Superman, Superheroes, Drama, Action/Adventure
