Smallville Season 3Smallville The Complete Third Season.
Superman is maybe the ultimate superhero of all time in my opinion so I might be a bit biased doing this review. It may have something to do with the fact that it was the first superhero comics I remember reading as a kid.
Now the third season of Clark Kent's life growing up in the small town of Smallville has been released on DVD, a 6 disc set with 22 episodes. He's still friends with Lex Luthor, still not quite sure how to deal with his feelings for Lana and still bumping into the unexplained and weird with Cloe.
The first episode starts out with Clark still living it up in Metropolis, "high" on red kryptonite and I guess it's not saying too much to reveal that Clark eventually will end up back in Smallville again where his adventures continue.
The extras include deleted scenes and commentaries to some of the episodes by cast and crew as well as The Chloe Chronicles where she conducts 7 documentary style investigations of bizarre town events. Listening to Allison Mack (Cloe), John Glover (Lionel Luthor) and director James Marshall comment on one of the episodes gives you quite a lot of insight into the making of the series and what lies behind. There's no commentaries with the main stars Tom Welling and Kristin Kreuk though, which is a bit disappointing.
What I think makes this series great is the exceptional cast and the way they all make their characters come to life and I'm not only thinking of Tom Welling as Clark. Kristin Kreuk as Lana and the way she plays off the ever changing emotions in her relationship with Clark is memorable, Anette O'Tole as the always caring and worried mother Martha, John Glover as Lionel Luthor and the way he manages to portray his ambiguous relationship to Lex, Allison Mack as Cloe, the always nosy reporter and not to forget Michael Rosenbaum as the "good" Lex that you still don't know if you should trust or not.
So if you are a Smallville fan I'd say this is a must have.
