“Odyssey” marks the first episode of the new season of Smallville. Time has flown by so quickly. The premiere has snuck up on me this year. I have a small confession to make though. I’ve been very cautious about getting to hyped up about this new season. There are a lot of changes to start off this season. Some good and some…well I suppose only time will tell. The two biggest question marks that stand over the show casting a very large shadow on my excitement, are the absence of Lex Luthor, and the introduction of Doomsday. By not having one and adding the other Smallville has been pretty much turned upside down. I’m hopeful though. I’ve seen some clips from the premiere and the way the new season has been shot it makes the show look larger. Much like Heroes, in that “Movie on TV” quality. Another redeeming factor to this new season is depicted in one of the most epic shots of the series. I’m of course talking about the photo in this post. Clark and Lois working across from one another at the Daily Planet. The only thing that could top that, is seeing Clark fly.
The new season premieres tonight on the CW at 8 PM. Also be sure to check out Starkville’s House of El for the the best podcast on the planet. Seriously….these guys are great!
