This reinterpretation of the enduring Superman mythology and its classic characters blends realism and adventure into an exciting action series. Years ago, a meteor shower burst from the heavens, raining destruction on the unsuspecting citizens of Smallville, Kansas. From the ashes of tragedy grew Clark Kent (Tom Welling), whose transition from boyhood to manhood was particularly difficult as he came to grips with his emerging superpowers.

This season, Clark will be at a crossroads - and closer than ever to becoming the superhero of legend. He will face his ultimate challenge with the emergence of a legendary, unstoppable destroyer - and this won't be the only nemesis to appear. With realistic portrayals and award-winning, state-of-the-art special effects, Smallville reworks the Superman lore from its roots.

 Doomsday is here. Sorta.

The 8th season of Smallville is a return to form. After a very wonky 7th year, there's a rekindled sense of direction, and the new Metropolis setting makes for a more sinister show than before. There are, of course, plenty of Smallville habits of the not-so-good variety to be found, but the character work is better than ever. The budget has been slashed dramatically, so the special FX have been reduced considerably, but they compensate with some very solid storylines.

Unfortunately, the season piques midway with a two episode power-house, Bride and Legion, two of the best episodes of the entire season. While the show retains its darkness, and certain characters fall to the darker side of the force after these spectacular outings, Team Smallville are unable to round off such a complicated storyline and the entire arc ultimately collapses in on itself. The finale should have been a two-parter, instead with get a pointless episode called 'Injustice' and then the false advertised 'Doomsday', which gets a few things right, but for an episode entitled Doomsday, very little actually happens, and the resolution to the arc is very weak.

Smallville was always scheduled for 8 seasons, and i thought maybe after 8 seasons it may be a good time to end it. But the quality of this season has made me eat-my-words. The introduction of maybe the most memorable supervillain in DC history has been pulled off with aplomb - and the story to go with it has been very interesting. The inclusion of many other DC characters has been good too, and making Justin Hartley a regular cast member was a brilliant decision as the Green Arrow is a fascinating character to watch on-screen (intrigued to see how his continuing story unfolds in season 9) and read in the comics. The fact that it is now going into a 9th season has got me excited about what they will do next season - topping doomsday will be an effort to say the least. Can't wait for the season 8 finale.
I will wait to see the price of the Blu-ray before i purchase the DVD however.
If the 9th series is to be the last, then all i can say is that Tom Welling has more than proved himself as a worthy successor to all those who have portrayed the clark kent character before him, and he deserves to wear the suit, the producers have said that they may go against the original ''no flights, no tights'' rule, by getting him flying (as Clark Kent/Red-blue Blur) but i sure hope they fully identify him as superman before the curtain closes on this brilliant tv show adaptation of the most iconic superhero of them all.

Next to stargate sg1 and atlantis, smallville has got to be the best series ive ever seen. To see how superman was in his earlier years makes you understand how he came to be . A series well worth watching.

 Good on average

Generally this season is excellent. All the Doomsday stuff is great and the intro's of more DC characters (e.g. the legion, zatanna) are very welcome.

But this season has two horrible issues. One is the Lana story. Why couldn't she just stay gone.

The other problem is trying to bring back Lex Luthor without Michael Rosenbaum. Insane idea.

My advice is get this if you like smallville but skip past the episodes Power and Requiem- Abysmal.
Ignoring those horrible issues, this season could be one of Smallvilles best.

 Not the best season but still pretty good

Lets be honest the show was always gonna suffer after Michael Rosenbaum left taking a big chunk of the shows appeal with him Lex Luthor leaving was a complete disaster but life goes on (although there are rumors he will be back as a guest star in season 9) and Sam Witwers Doomsday was a good 1 season bad guy, overall the seasons best episodes as always are the first and last there is an episode called Legion about half way through you should avoid at sll costs it was rubbish however the rest is still good viewing check it out.
