From Amazon.co.uk

The venerable Superman mythos gets a 21st-century updating in the imaginative and engaging TV series Smallville. The premise of the show--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 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 grounds 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 programme. --Paul Gaita

For all Smallville fans, this is a must buy keepsake of the first season. For those not so familiar, Smallville, is a modern day version of Superman the early years. Clark Kent is a High School student in Smallville, he writes for his School paper and is adored by Chloe Sullivan editor of the newspaper and his best friend. When not in School he is down on the Kent farm helping his parents Jonathan and Martha Kent. Although he knows he has some special abilities, he hasn't got them all and we see him develop new ones as we go through the season, which sometimes help and sometimes hinder him. But Smallville is no ordinary hick town..... after being bombarded with meteorites filled with pieces of Kryptonite Rock from Clarks homeworld, when Clark landed on earth, some of the residents of Smallville develop strange abilities, that lead to trouble. Clark is in love with Lana Lang, who is untouchable, since she is dating Whitney, the School's Football Team Captain. Like Lois Lane in the original Superman, Lana is always getting into trouble and Clark is always there saving her. For anyone who loves the Superman fantasies and enjoy's a good bit of x-files type strangeness, then this is for you.

Maybe it is that Superman is truly indestructible or that the Man of Steel, who was picked recently as one of the Top 10 American pop culture icons, is so respected that not even Hollywood would dare tug on his cape, because "Smallville" is another successful small screen version of the strange visitor from another planet. Of course, the great irony is that this time around there is no cape to tug on because this television series is about Clark Kent, years before he put on the suit with the big red "S," when he was still in high school, his powers were just starting to kick in, and the girl in his life with the double L name was Lana Lang.
Keep in mind that when Joe Shuster and Jerry Siegel created the Man of Steel in 1939 there was no Superboy until 1949, when he began part of the futuristic Legion of Super-Heroes. All we knew about the early days is that just before the doomed planet Krypton exploded to fragments, a scientist placed his infant son within an experimental rocket ship, launching it toward earth. When the vessel reached our planet, the child was found by an elderly couple, the Kents. They adopted the super tyke and with love and guidance shaped the boy's future. As he grew older Clark Kent learned to hurdle skyscrapers, leap an eighth of a mile, raise tremendous weights, run faster than a streamline train, and that nothing less than a bursting shell could penetrate his skin. When his foster parents passed away, Clark decided he must turn his titanic strength into channels that would benefit mankind.
The key part of "Smallville" is that creators Alfred Gough and Miles Millar go back to the simple beginning, with young Clark (Tom Welling) growing up on the Kent farm with Martha (Annette O'Toole) and Jonathan (John Schneider).

A meteor shower over the town of Smallville, Kansas brings a blight in the form of unusual green rocks which are capable of affecting lifeforms exposed to them. However, the shower also brings to Earth a spaceship and, within it, the boy who will grow up to be Superman.
As is usual for the first season of any show, ‘Smallville’ takes a little time to find its footing – stumbling through season one and the early part of two. This set contains episodes which range from superb (notably ‘Leech’, ‘Zero’ and ‘Tempest’) to dreadful (‘Metamorphosis’, ‘Craving’). The strength of the show lies in its characters, and episodes which are driven by those characters and their personal struggles are those which really excel, whilst others which balance this aspect with a freak-of-the-week B-plot often end up either mediocre or ridiculous.
In general, the dialogue in the show is excellently written from the word go. The writing occasionally falters, however, and clanger-lines are not uncommon, especially in exposition scenes where the characters are forced to spout hypotheses which would leave even Agent Mulder feeling a little foolish, had he to suggest them. Indeed, many ideas here have been pilfered from ‘The X Files’ and other shows, and as there simply isn’t enough time in each episode for emotional-turmoil scenes and a strong sci-fi plot, the former shines at the expense of the latter.
Overall, ‘Smallville’ season one can be forgiven for its failings, as so much of it is so enjoyable. The extras on this set are fairly meagre, consisting only in those made for the Canadian release of the Pilot/’Metamorphosis’ ‘mini-movie’, but the extras are unimportant when it’s the episodes you really want to see. Climaxing in the fantastic ‘Tempest’, we are left holding our breaths for season two.

Season 1 is a great start to the Smallville adventure. It succeeds in laying down the groundwork for the series. I would definitely recommend this to anyone. If your looking for an ground breaking box set to add to your collection then get season 2 as it has a lot more depth to both the characters and the plot. In S1 Lana can be a bit cringeworthy at times during the early stages as Kreuk's acting can be sketchy as she seems to be getting into character. The writers don't really have much of a role for Lana yet, except for Clark's love interest and the Damsel in distress on multiple occasions.
Another flaw of this season is the repetitiveness. Person gets effected by kryptonite in some way, clark figures out what is wrong with the help of Pete & Chloe, Clark saves day in the nick of time after overcoming some form of struggle.
This is a great introduction to what is an amazing series; I would highly recommend it. If you don't like this then don't be put off as Smallville is about to get a whole lot better. It is worth every penny, believe me.
Season 4 is especially awesome, watch out for it this October on DVD.
