I can’t believe it’s been 20 years since Smallville began! Granted, the series lasted an amazing 10 years. I had a couple seasons on DVD, but the blu-ray quality is much better. And I enjoyed the extras on this set as well. It has been a lot of fun rewatching this iconic series. From Clark’s early years and romance with Lana and complex relationship with Lex, to finally meeting Lois Lane and several familiar superfriends, Smallville covers a decade of young Clark’s life, chronicling his journey to Superman. The show had a great cast with characters that captivated. And a roller coaster of drama, mystery, and adventure that appeals to a wide audience. It’s heartwarming, nostalgic, and a lot of fun. This blu-ray set looks great as well. Each season has its own blu-ray case. And it has a nice, solid box to house all 10 seasons and bonus disc, with a cover that stands out on the shelf yet doesn’t take up extra space.
