It's not a bad show in terms of writing. The voice-acting was brilliant, in fact. Clancy Brown is still the best Lex Luthor to date. Dana Delany was also a perfect Lois Lane. And of course there is Michael Ironside as Darkseid.

The biggest problem was Superman, who was boring as hell. That's what happens when you make every effort to strip Superman of all his interesting qualities. They had no idea how to use his powers correctly.

The best episodes of the show were the ones with Darkseid, because it was pure Jack Kirby silver-age craziness. Which is far more interesting than bland, pedestrian post-crisis Superman.
