This authorised companion to the second season of Smallville
reveals everything you could possibly need to know about the
show's second year. It is packed with exclusive interviews,
unseen photos, behind-the-scenes secrets and a complete episode
guide. And if that wasn't enough, there are insights into
the world of Smallville, with excerpts from the town
and high school newspapers, The Smallville Ledger and
The Smallville Torch...
will come as no surprise to anyone who bought Smallville:
The Official Companion - Season One to learn
that the Season Two companion is just as well researched and
again the guide's author,
Paul Simpson, has been granted complete access to the set.
And, instead of trawling Internet sites and "borrowing"
interview quotes from other sources (believe me you'd be surprised
how many author's to guide books do that), the man has got
down and dirty to ensure that even the most picky of fans
will love this.
format is the same (obviously) and includes a thorough plot
synopsis for each episode. These also contain information
like the titles and bands for all of the songs played in that
episode; a "Did You Know?" section that reveals
interesting snippets of trivia that even the biggest fan probably
won't know (examples include: In the episode Rosetta,
the cloud footage used for the opening effects sequence of
Clark flying in his dreams was actually shot many years earlier
for a Warner Bros film); and noteworthy quotes.
like with the Season Once companion, I actually read this
book cover to cover unlike most companion books where I might
dip in and out. The combinations of a busy layout, enticing
photography and loads of interesting information just kept
me turning those pages.
the back of this collection there are pages devoted to the
main characters (not the actors) of the show. This looks at
how each character has grown since Season One, and includes
quotes from the actors on their feelings on their character's
role in Season Two.
is also a brief look at the effects for Season Two; the promotional
"webisodes" that featured Chloe; and a peek into
the phenomena that is Smallville - which, among other
issues, looks at Smallville merchandise.
There are 16 pages of glossy, full colour photography in the
centre of this collection - all head and shoulder shots of
the principal actors - as well as a whole heap (at least one
on every two page spread) of interesting black and white images.
again Titan prove that companion books don't have to be dry
affairs. Simpson sets the standard for others to follow. If
only all guide books were as wonderfully put together as this.
