Wal-Mart has had all six seasons of Smallville currently available on DVD for $19.99 a piece for a little over a week now.
I’ve been in Wal-Mart several times over the past week getting groceries and other necessities and have walked past those DVDs, stopped, walked back, stared at them and then kept going.
I didn’t have seasons 5 and 6. Just haven’t gotten around to buying them yet.
Tonight I did.
As much as I bad mouth the show I feel like a bit of a fraud buying them.
See, it’s not that I hate Smallville. I just haven’t liked it since the hundredth episode. I thought they just wussed out by killing Jonathan and not killing Lana and there’s the fact that they are producing a young adult drama and trading in on the Superman name to do it. So between those reasons and my complete inability to follow episodic television I didn’t see an episode of the series with the exception of the Justice League episode and the one after it and always thought, “Well, I’ll just buy them when they come out on DVD,” which is the television version of waiting for the trade I suppose.
Both seasons came out and I just didn’t buy them mostly because when I did half-ass want them it was a week where money was tight.
And now I have them.
Because they were $20.
Or at least that is what I keep telling myself.
More to follow…
