Also not able to Scan but I have Every Episode of Smallville to date. Below is what I think of each Episode so far. If any of you think differently email me a response.
The story of superman's arrival to this world is told in a little different format than previous stories. Instead of one lone ship crashing to earth, several meteorites bombard the tiny town of Smallville. This incident quickly labels Smallville the Meteorite capital of the world. In amongst all the action, a tiny space ship crashes to Earth bringing with it an orphan from the planet Krypton.
It just so happens that the Kent's found the small boy and immediately took him in. They named him Clark and raised him as their own son. Years later, Clark, now a 15 year old freshman in high school, is dealing with all the pressures that being teen can bring. He is also very aware of the strange powers and abilities that he is developing.
Clark is not a geek with glasses, he is more like the boy of steel in the 1983 film "Superman: The Movie." The one that wanted to play football and worshiped Lana Lang from affair. Which is evident by the amount of time Clark spends day dreaming about Lana.
The friendship that develops between Lex and Clark leaves you wondering what happened to end such a relationship. The Lex in this Pilot, does not appear to be evil in any respect. He just does not relate well to his father. So the question is? Why does Lex become in Clark's enemy, and does this have anything to do with Clark discussion to become Superman? Well, we will just have to watch, wait, and see.

Image from supermanhomepage What's it about? A story about a nerdish bug collector named Greg Arkin (Chad E. Donella ) who finds himself is involved in a accident which leaves him with strange spider like powers. First he will eat (his mother of course), then he will molt, and then he will mate and Lana is the girl he desires. This motivates him to attempt to destroy Whitney (Lana’s boyfriend) by jumping on the hood of his car causing an accident. Fortunately for Whitney Clark arrives in time to save his life.
Later, Lex and Clark discuss Lana and Lex gives Lana’s necklace to Clark in a lead box. In doing so Clark has made one of his many discoveries that lead shields him from the effects of Kryptonite. Lex advises Clark to continue to pursue Lana and give her back her necklace to win her heart.
Lex then goes to visit Lana and hints to her that Whitney might be the one who hung Clark in the field. He also compares Whitney the football star and Clark the hero.
After learning that Lana would like to spend time with Clark, Clark becomes a target for Greg. The next scene Clark and Jonathan are in the barn, Clark hears a rattling sound and he is attacked by Greg. Clark throws Greg into the rafters and then Greg throws Jonathan over the railing. Clark uses super speed to run to the spot where his father is about to land and shield Jonathan from the Fall. Clark is shocked that an old friend of his would turn against him.
Clark, Chloe, and Pete go to Greg’s place, while walking up the steps to the house they discuss Greg’s tree-house and the fun they use to have playing in it. Pete jokes with Clark about his fear of heights. Because Clark always refused to go up the ladder to tree-house. Clark denies having a fear of heights and replies that the building was structurally unsound", and therefore not safe to be in. Which was a miserable attempt by Clark to try and save face. When they get to the house, they peeked in the window, immediately they know something was up. Inside they discovered spider webs, skin in the tub, and the dehydrated body of Greg’s mother wrapped in a webs. What is more disturbing, however, is the video of Lana playing on the television. Chloe states "Looks like Greg has found his mate!".
The scene changes and Lana and Whitney are discussing the incident about Clark being hung in the cornfield. Lana is upset by Whitney’s actions. In enters Greg, he hits Whitney. Knocking him out, and takes Lana away.
Clark arrives and talks to a Whitney. He tells Whitney to meet him at the old tree-house. Clark is gone in a flash as Whitney attempts to make an apology. Clark finds Lana in the tree-house wrapped in a web. Then the battle begins. Greg leads Clark to an old industrial building that has been abandoned since the meteorite shower. The building is full of kryptonite. Clark is weak and unable to fight Greg. However, he soon finds himself inside a lead container which shields him for the affects of Kryptonite and gathers his strength to defeat Greg. When Clark arrived back the tree-house Whiteney and Lana are walking arm and arm away. Later that night Clarks giving Lana back her necklace. Again, another selfless act by Clark proving that he cares more for others than he does himself.

FINALLY the BEST episode that was very much Smallville. And we all got a chance to see what this show could be at it's very best. I loved that we never saw Earl connect with Kryptonite, yet knew he had. That he was human and real, with a history, a story, a personality. Not a bad guy, nor did he have "super powers" that reflected his wishes and desires--he just had a very bad problem. I loved that this was not a problem easily solved. It wasn't a "monster created, Lana in danger, Clark figures it out and, at the end, saves the day," story, as so many have been. It was not formula. It was, instead, natural and it had heart. I loved that both Lex and Clark got to be true heroes, doing something truely courageous and dangerous and selfless. I loved that the family dynamics and friendships were illuminated, without hitting me over the head with them. From the parents anniversary, to Earl's friendship with the Kents, to Pete getting a hug from Martha (a VERY nice touch which emphasized that he *is* Clark's long-time friend, and that this *is* a small town, where moms care about all the kids almost as much as their own). And, of course, the dicotomy between Lex's relationship with his dad and Clark's with his. This episode worked from beginning to end, and the marvelous party scene where Clark rights a falling object while nabbing a bowl for a sick guest was funny and brilliant and *EXACTLY* the little extras needed to make any Superman show charming--and to give the show it's own special flavor. Not a stolen flavor from another show, but *very much* it's own. WRITEN BY: MOON
