Critic Consensus: Smallville's modern re-telling of the Superman saga benefits from a focus on teen angst and small-town drama instead of comic book camp.

Critic Reviews for Smallville Season 1

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (6)

Superman's coming of age comes as a pleasant surprise.

Jun 29, 2018 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

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

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

Human stories like this one made early Smallville relatable for its young audience, and the first season leaves on a cliffhanger that will blow viewers away.

Jul 12, 2018 | Full Review…

It's precisely this simplicity that gives the [finale] its charm after all this time, as we get to see the youth of our characters without dealing with meteor-freak attacks or the suffocating plot structure of early episodes.

Jul 12, 2018 | Full Review…

This is a thoughtful, funny and often action-filled show.

Jun 28, 2018 | 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.

Nov 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.

Nov 20, 2017 | Full Review…

Entertaining, though short of super.

Nov 20, 2017 | Full Review…

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

Nov 14, 2017 | Full Review…
Top Critic

... 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.
