Smallville at its Finest
29 October 2016 | by themanofhopeSee all my reviews

Season 3 of Smallville is Smallville at it's absolute best. It's far darker than its 2 previous seasons, more brutal, horrific and sad while expanding the origin story of Clark Kent becoming Superman. The season is amazing as Clark and Lex's friendship ends, Lionel Luther goes to jail, Lana leaves to Paris and Jonathan Kent suffers from heart problems after the deal he made with Jor-El (Clark's biological father). The season has much more action sequences, less teen high school romance bullshit, way less filler and Freak of the Week episodes with a much more concrete and well thought out story line. Lionel Luther is at his absolute best here as the season really shows how evil he really is and what Lex had to deal with for his whole life. The season literally has no bad episodes and even most of the Freak of the Week episodes are good. The best episodes in the season would probably be episode 1 (for being one of the most hopeless and intense season premiers, 8 and 9 (for showing what Lionel Luther will be willing to do to his son to protect himself, Episode 17 for bringing Christopher Reeve back and Episode 22 for being one of the most jaw dropping season finales I have ever seen to the point where I was on the edge of my seat more than the season 4 finale of Breaking Bad. The season 3 finale of Smallville was literally like a lets take everyone out sort of Finale as everyone falls into darkness with not the slightest chance of hope. If you want to see Smallville at it's absolute best, than definitely check out season 3. I'm giving Season 3 of Smallville a 9.3/10 making it the best season so far.
