SMALLVILLE should really be called METROPOLIS
now since most of the action now takes place in Metropolis and that Clark Kent goes to work at the Daily Planet as a reporter. Then he has his biggest challenge to face as the threat known as Doomsday will soon
make his presence known. Also Green Arrow struggles with what it means to be
a hero as Metropolis starts to learn about the Red Blue Blur (aka Clark). Chloe
prepares for marriage to Jimmy as a mysterious EMT, Davis Bloome, becomes attracted to her.
Then there is Lex’s heir apparent, Tess Mercer, since Lex Luthor is missing.
Season eight brings another chapter to
the superman mythos as Clark
grows closer to the legend we know as Superman. We see Clark grow as a character further and his attractions to Lois (and her attraction
for him) grow. The storylines build from episode to episode. Even we find out what happens to Supergirl, why Lana left, and the consequences of Brainiac has on Chloe.
Two audio commentaries are in the set-
IDENTITY by Cassidy Freeman, Director Mairzee
Almas, and Executive Producer Brian Peterson
LEGION by Writer Geoff Johns, Executive
Producer Darren Swimmer, and Supervising Producer Tim Scanlan
Deleted scenes are included for ten episodes
and the most interesting ones are the cut scenes for POWER and HEX
IN THE DIRECTOR’S CHAIR: BEHIND THE
LENS AND CALLING THE SHOTS WITH ALLISON MACK-
SMALLVILLE’S DOOMSDAY: THE MAKING
OF A MONSTER-
FINAL ANALYSIS: I love season 8 of SMALLVILLE as much as season 7. I do miss
the presence of Lex Luthor. I just wonder when the show will be renamed METROPOLIS.
