    Great set; Terrible,Terrible Packaging

    If you are considering buying the series box set then you must already be a fan. This is a great show with very good actors and storyline. This set has what you would expect - all 10 seasons on 62 discs. Every Smallville fan should own it. However, there is one caveat everyone considering this set should be aware of. The packaging was very poorly thought out. With 62 discs, this set weighs in at over 9 pounds. The issue is that with 62 discs, every disc is very, very tightly packed in. The dvd's come in two rectangular shaped "books." Each book contains "pages" that hold 2 dvds on one side of the page and 2 dvds on the back side of the page. But they are really sealed in there! and nearly impossible to get out without risking damaging the discs. I bought my set at Best Buy, went home and took out 4 discs from Season 10. I noticed 2 of the 4 discs were scratched. So I decided to go through and look at every disc in the set and found that about 40% #no kidding# were scratched. The design of the set is such that the discs slide in to a cardboard sleeve and are so tightly packed that when you try to take them out there is a ton of pressure on both sides of the disc leaving the bottom of the disc #that your dvd player reads# rubbing against the sleeve on the way out. I promise I was extremely careful taking each one of them out. I got online and looked up reviews from amazon and saw where a ton of people were having the same issue - lots of scratched discs. So I took my set back and exchanged it for another. This time I took it home and tried a different approach. Basically, the only way you will be able to get them out is to seperate the front and back of the cardboard sleeve the discs slide into. The sleeve is held together by a double-sided tape similar to weatherstripping. When you peel the front and back of the sleeve apart it relieves the pressure from the discs and you can get them out much more easily. But in doing so, you are kind of damaging the books that the discs come #imo it doesn't really do much# but you can always re-glue the sleeves back together once you are done. In doing this a few of the discs were scratched just a little but not to the point to where it affected playback. I would strongly advise you not to put your discs back in the book once you get them out or you'll put them back in harm's way again. I just put mine in a dvd portfolio. I hate that I can't use the storage "books" the set came with, but ultimately my main reason for buying the set is to watch it, not to have it look pretty the way it came. Overall, great show. But definitely be aware that the discs are highly susceptible to scratching and will likely have some on there when you get it just from where they were placed in the books at the factory. The challenge is to find a way to get them out without damaging them any further.

    Possibly the right choice for a Smallville fan.

    I purchased the full series of Smallville for the simple reason that hunting down the seasons I was looking for was not cost effective and getting them would have taken longer than I wanted. The one drawback with this collection are the cardboard books the discs come in. Getting the discs out required me to tear at the cardboard with the hope I wouldn't ruin the discs. Except for that one complaint I am fully pleased with my purchase and would recommend any Smallville who could find this on sale for $100, which I did, make this purchase if they are missing three or more seasons from their collection.

    For those of you who don't have the individual seasons and are looking to i.e. the series, this complete set is the way to go. Though pricey, the discs are housed in two yearbook style cases, beautifully decorated with glossy photos from the show. The discs are a little difficult to remove but I think the inconvenience is worth the aesthetics of the set. The show itself starts off like Superman at Dawson's Creek but finds its identity fairly quickly. A must see for fans of the man of tomorrow.

    This is a great way to get all 10 seasons of the series in one package. I would have preferred to get everything on Blu-ray, but the first few seasons are (at the time of this review) currently only available on DVD so buying this package with the complete series (even if just on DVD) is the only way to go if you want all ten seasons in one package. The extras, like the episode guide, that come with the package are also nice to have.

    The complete series of Smallville is excellent. The DVDs come in 2 separate books with candid shots on the pages. All the discs played and had no issues with them being scratched. It was a little hard to pull them out so be careful not to break the disc...or you might start yelling "somebody save me" and hope Clark Kent comes to the rescue. If you like Superman then this complete set is a must buy and you will greatly enjoy.

    My 13 year old daughter got interested in Smallville reruns on TV. We were able to rent a few of the seasons at our local video store, but most of the seasons were missing. We got her this set so she could see the whole series and she absolutely Loves it! It's captivating, has interesting characters, and each disc keeps her on the edge of her seat for the next one!

    This is a great collection to own. This set features the complete 10 seasons as well as many extra features. They appear to be the original season discs just relabeled for this package with numbers 1-62. Overall it's a great collection to have and definitely worth the money. The only thing I can really complain about is the discs are in a sort of paper sleeve which can stick to the disc sometimes.

    Comes packaged with its own thick booklets, everything is store nicely. I watched bits and pieces of this show when I was a kid and then I eventually stopped watching it because i felt that I was missing key important episodes. But ever since I saw it at this sale price, it was a STEAL! I know it's not blu-Ray but still, it's great to be able to go back to the first season and watch everything!
