SMALLVILLE II (article first published : 2004-06-6)

M-Net's favourite action series Smallville, blends realism and adventure as it take the classic characters of the enduring Superman franchise back to high school. Modern superman Clark Kent (Tom Welling) doesn't wear glasses, there's no suit and he can't fly. Between the boy he thought he was and the man he is destined to become lie the compelling stories of Smallville.

The legend goes like this: Over a decade ago, a meteor shower burst from the heavens, raining destruction on the unsuspecting citizens of Smallville, Kansas. The calamity left the town's inhabitants with scars and secrets--but it also left a miracle for a childless couple. From the ashes of tragedy in Smallville, Clark grew into a teenager. While being a teen always brings challenges, Clark's transition from boyhood to adulthood is particularly difficult. He must cope with the effects of the meteor rocks while protecting this idyllic Midwest hamlet from the strange occurrences that have plagued it since the meteor shower.

As season three unfolds, Jonathan and Martha deal with the near-destruction of their already cash-strapped farm and search for Clark, who has left Smallville for Metropolis, wearing his red Kryptonite ring. Meanwhile, search parties comb the ocean for Lex Luthor (Rosenbaum) and his crashed corporate jet. Prior to these dramatic events, Lex and Clark were forging a remarkable friendship, without an inkling of how their destinies will ultimately collide. But their ill-fated camaraderie causes tension in the close-knit Kent family, as Jonathan fears that Lex will emulate Lionel and his unscrupulous ways, even after Lex has tried to establish his own identity.
