Smallville Crack

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.

We started really watching in two seasons ago, caught all year last season, and can't wait for Clark to kick some Bizarro buttocks in the upcoming episodes.

I just finished the second disc, and yes, that was where I missed Martha working for Lionel, Lana's aunt nell moving out of the picture as well as Mr. Small coming into her life.

By far, the best episode on that disc was when Clark's "Biological" mother shows up. All of the flashbacks to meteor day added to the story, and we find out why Johnathan has such a distrust for the Luthors.

I am hoping to be caught up before the series premier. I should be starting season three this weekend.
