Critic Reviews for Smallville: Season 1

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (5)

In its initial outing, it's doing a solid job.

October 16, 2001 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It takes a show like Smallville a season to find its footing and tone. It gets better towards the end of the season.

November 20, 2017 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

The themes -- teen angst, coming-of-age, puberty, loneliness, intimacy, connection and lack of connection to parents -- are skillfully woven into an engaging story line that reinterprets the 63-year-old mythology of Superman for a new generation.

November 20, 2017 | Full Review…

Entertaining, though short of super.

November 20, 2017 | Full Review…

... a superhero series by way of a Dawson's Creek-style young adult melodrama: teen angst with a kryptonite boost and moral lessons in a freak-of-the-week serial.

November 18, 2016 | Full Review…

People may feel they've already seen this before and know where it goes.
