Feb 12, 2020 Full Review Cory Barker AV Club Season two smartly expands the show's storytelling capabilities while staying grounded in coming-of-age high-school plots. Nov 22, 2017 Full Review William Thomas Empire Magazine Consistently good, the series finds its high point in Rosetta, an episode which showcases a cameo from Christopher Reeve. 4/5 Oct 18, 2017 Full Review Jeremy Conrad IGN Movies The show really starts hitting its stride and starts doing some cool things with Superman. 8/10 Nov 22, 2017 Full Review Sean Axmaker Lex gets his own supervillain: his icy industrialist father Lionel (John Glover), who makes Machiavelli look like a pushover.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars 05/04/23 Full Review Audience Member A little bit weaker than season 1 but still a great expansion on the superman mythology. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member a better improvement over the previous season. the characters are more flesh out and the kryptonian powers are explained and shown on screen. clark stops beeing a whiner and gets a bit more of confidence. this are the good times of smallville.
