Twenty two years ago on this very day (October 16, 2001), “Smallville” premiered on television.
Superman fan Douglas Meacham (with help from Trentus Magnus) put together “The Essential SMALLVILLE!”, a compilation of the must-see episodes of 10 seasons of “Smallville”.
Doug explains, “‘Smallville’ has been a large part of my young adult life. This list dates back, in rudimentary form, to as far as 2007, before the series ended. I rewatched the show to create this finalized list for posting on the Superman Homepage for the anniversary of the show’s airing. It reduces the show to a little more than half the total episodes, and it’s my hope that it will serve as a good guided tour of the series for new watchers and a refresher for seasoned ones.”
“As mentioned above, Trentus Magnus was very helpful in contributing his feedback and opinion on which episodes should be included. He covers the show in depth in his podcast ‘Trentus Magnus Punches Reality’. I highly recommend giving these episodes and the show in general a listen. I also invite feedback from you as well. You can e-mail me your opinions and viewing experiences at firstname.lastname@example.org. In the meantime, up, up, and away!”
