Smallville: The Complete Eighth Season Blu-ray Review
The man of Steel has been part of our worldwide culture since the 20th century. During that time, we have seen Superman in print, film, and on television. It's latest television incarnation is a series entitled, Smallville, which shows Superman's humble beginning as the small town boy, Clark Kent. It has become a popular success, and is the longest, running superman series ever. Now it's 8th season has flown into our living rooms on Blu-ray.
In Season Eight, starring Tom Welling, Allison Mack, Erica Durance, Aaron Ashmore, Cassidy Freeman, Sam Witwer and Justin Hartley, there is a new reporter at the Daily Planet: Clark Kent. He shares a workspace with Lois Lane. There is a new hero in Metropolis, too. No one knows who he is. But Jimmy Olsen was on the scene of one of the do-gooder's exploits, and he snapped a blurred photo of the hero in super-speed action – a hero everyone now calls the Red- Blue Blur.
Red-jacketed, blue-shirted Clark Kent draws closer to his Superman destiny, and another Kryptonian destiny also takes shape as Davis Bloome begins to realize he is Doomsday. His mission on Earth: kill Clark Kent.
While most shows in their eighth season seem to run out of steam, Smallville is the exception, in fact, ever since Clark Kent started to work in metropolis, the show has been getting better and better. The introduction of Doomsday by the creators was a great move and showed a troubled being who did not necessarily want to be evil. The show also shocked us many times this season with unexpected deaths, and even options for some of the characters that seemed very much out of character.
Warner Bros Home Entertainment has delighted fans by releasing Smallville Season 8 in Blu-ray. This is the second season that fans of the show will now be able to see their favorite superhero in glorious 1080p. Hopefully seasons 1-6 will come out sooner than later as well in this superior format. The multi-disc set contains all 22 episodes of the show, some great bonus features, including some unaired footage from the season, and the making of one of Superman's deadliest foes, Doomsday.
Smallville Season 8 Blu-ray is the perfect companion for any Smallville fan -- whether it be a casual viewer or the die-hard fan. This is definitely a must have for all.
