I swore that after the "Great Buck Rodgers" disaster last year, I would not let myself get hooked into a new tv dvd series. That has come to an end as I have just added Smallville Season 3 to my Netflix Queue.
With so many discs coming in, I accidentally skipped disc 2 of season 2. This will probably explain some the oddities associated with missing some of the story arc (seriously, I thought I must have fallen asleep).
Anyways, if you haven't seen the show, it plays a lot like Beverly Hills 90210 meets X-Files: Everyone is gorgeous, and there are many Mutants. The mutant motif dies off once the series picks up steam and the character arcs start to develop. So, if you are looking for a new series to get hooked on, try Smallville.
