The episodes often get posted on Usenet and other places on the Internet. The people who do this are breaking copyright laws and you would not be obtaining legal copies of the episodes. You could be subject to fines and/or a jail sentence if caught and prosecuted.
But the show does look great in HD so it may be a tough decision for you.
Absolutely perfect timing. I got my Sony Pearl on Friday and my 119" diagonal Da-lite High Power screen on Tuesday. Smallville is unbelievably great on this set-up. When you get a close-up of Lana or Chloe and their faces are five feet tall, just Wow. I have the past three seasons saved on DVHS tape and have viewed at least five classic episodes waiting for tonight's premiere. I was surprised they managed to tie up all the cliffhangers in one episode; they can certainly move the story forward briskly when they need to. I just hope they can keep up the tempo for the rest of the season.
No HD on the CW affiliate in Albuquerque (KWBQ). This is the first time I've tried to watch anything on that channel, so I don't know if it's standard operating procedure, or if they just fouled up tonight. I won't watch it in SD, unless it's on the anamorphic DVD set--I hate to think I'll have to wait all that time for this season, but I've watched the other seasons on DVD only (just started late last year).
I was digging it...looks like the formula for season 6 is "phantom zone freak of the week" instead of the "meteor rock freak of the week" or the "Braniac trick of the week" or the "crystal gathering trick of the week", etc...etc...etc...
I'm sorry, but this wrap-up of a cliff hanger was pretty weak for me. It just seemed like they took the material for about 6 shows and jammed them all into one episode. It just felt hurried to wrap it all up at once. Nothing had any depth.
Phantom Zone - about 4 minutes of attention.
Intro of Jimmy Olsen - 1 minute of attention.
Martha & Lois at N.Pole - 3 minutes until resolution
Lionel saying stuff that didn't add to episode - 3 minutes
Epic battle of Clark and Zod fighting to save the world - 2 minutes
Lana trying to understand Zod/Lex's new feelings - 27 minutes
Lex able to regain Lana's trust just hours after ramming a pole through her hand - about 5 sentences. Just as long as it concludes with "Its making the hard choices which make us grow".
Bring on Next week, but this one won't get a "protect" on my DVR.
It's been too long since I enjoyed a Smallville episode this much. Hopefully they can continue this trend.
Here in Philly, moving from WPHL to WPSG because of the WB/UPN merger was the best thing that could've happened to this show. The old WPHL/WB/MyNetwokTV HD signal was easily the worst in the area, whereas WPSG/UPN/CW's quality rivaled that of the best HD broadcaster in the area: WCAU/CBS. The show looked amazing and had much less compression artifacts.
