Smallville: Opening Episode

High points:

appropriately, Clark's arrival is a big event for the town even though no one else understands what is really going on;

Lex loses his hair because of Clark although, again, they do not realise this at the time;

Lex was born to wealth, not poverty, but can make his own way in any case - both origins are good but are also diametrical opposites;

Lionel Luthor's newspaper headline reports the disappearance and presumed death of the Queen Industries CEO - the beginning for another DC character;

handing Neitzsche to Clark, Lana asks him whether he is Man or Superman;

Lex asks Clark whether he believes a man can fly, then describes his own near death experience;

Clark tells Jonathan he will say whether he is ok in maybe five years - which is probably how many seasons the series was expected to run;

Lionel and Chloe are good additions to the cast;

Pete Ross is a different guy but also a good character;

the Kryptonite necklace winds up in Lex's possession.

What's not to like?
