    That's Superboy, not Smallville.

    Actually, no. Doug was correct. While Warner was indeed releasing
    Season 1 of SUPERBOY this past week, the release mentioned here
    is a combo-package of the first seasons of SMALLVILLE, LOIS & CLARK

    Sorry man, I'm replying to you because it says the original is too old
    and has been closed.
    Looks like this is 90% the same as the old A&E release.
    Heck yeah!
    UMD is the disc format for the hand-held PSP (Playstation Portable),
    they cannot currently be used on any other device, including the PS2.
