I'm sure there's more that my lack of sleep won't allow me to remember right now. And I know some of these things were done in the comics first, but its just interesting to see how much they incorporated from the show, especially things that people seemed so outraged bout and unwilling to accept in the past.
But in MOS the other boy is Fordham, not Fordman.
In some ways MOS takes "Lois learns Clark is an alien before the debut of Superman" even further. She learns Clark is Super-powered before his public debut at all.
