Default 'Smallville: The Complete Tenth Season' - High-Def Digest Review

Aaron has just reviewed 'Smallville: The Complete Tenth Season.' He says this season offers a fairly satisfying conclusion to the popular series. This Blu-ray features strong video, excellent lossless audio, and a few extras. Fans should be very happy! Worth a look.

I actually think the show picked up quite a bit from season 8 on but I'm a big comic fan so I didn't mind them bringing in other DC elements. For the most part I liked this season but the finale felt a bit limp in areas. After leading up to the big confrontation to have it end the way it did was disappointing. That said, I geeked out a bit when they ended the show with the Williams theme.

I've planned on picking this season up so I'm happy to hear it's pretty good technically, thanks for the review.

I think I gave up somewhere in season 7. It just went on for too long and to me the enemies were becoming silly.
What I loved about the show in the beginning was that it WAS Smallville. He was in high school, with is parents, loving Lana and his relation with Lex and the shades of things to come were great.

But then they got caught up in not wanting to be a Superman show but everyone had grown up and so it wasn't Smallville anymore but it wasn't the future either. I think it went downhill after his dad died and they started going into JLA territory.

Be honest, this is you, isn't it?

I... I... damn.

I mean I enjoyed most of that stuff but not once did I ever sound like I was fucking a Kodiak bear or well, whatever noises that dude was making.

That just embarrasses me as a comic fan, and I feel a need to take a shower now.

I was a fan of Smallville for a while. For me, it hit its peak at Season 6 and then went way downhill in Season 7. Season 8 had some decent moments, and I actually enjoyed Season 9 quite a bit.

I haven't watched this season yet, but from what I've heard, I'm going to watch it without extremely high hopes.

For me, Smallville is one of those guilty pleasure shows. I watch it, and enjoy it a fair bit, despite knowing full well that it is not a good show.

Welcome to the forums. I just wanted to say that I love your user name, but was certainly hoping for an avatar that was more literal

Thanks! I would love to make myself a more literal avatar, but I haven't the tools or the talent to do so!

EDIT: Or I could just try Google, like any person of marginal intelligence would do...
