I've always been a fan of Superman and haven't missed a first run episode of Smallville in eight seasons. What I was looking forward to viewing was the kind of bonus features that I knew would be icing on the cake.

From official release/information:

Product Description:
There's a new reporter at the Daily Planet: Clark Kent, who shares a workspace with Lois Lane. There's a new hero in Metropolis, too. No one knows who he is. But Jimmy Olsen was on the scene of one of the do-gooder's exploits, and he snapped a blurred photo of the hero in superspeed action, a hero everyone now calls the Red-Blue Blur. Red-jacketed, blue-shirted Clark Kent draws closer to his Superman destiny in the exciting 22-episode, 6-disc Season 8 of Smallville. Another Kryptonian destiny also takes shape. Davis Bloome begins to realize he is Doomsday. His mission on Earth: kill Clark Kent. So many new events (will Jimmy and Chloe's marriage last?), so many new faces (Tess Mercer, Saturn Girl, Cosmic Boy, and Lightning Lad among them!), so many state-of-the-art effects, so don't miss a single thrill-packed moment!
