Superman is different than "Superior man"....
Totally agreed.

And I always think that it's good to compare him to Batman in that way.

Batman is sending a message to criminals with his symbol. It is showing them that they aren't above the law, that they can't get away with everything scott free, and that they should be afraid.

Superman is sending a message to the people. It is showing them that there truly are good people in the world, who dedicate their lives to helping people. It is showing them that they should hope, and that miracles can happen, and that they shouldn't live in fear. That not everyone is selfish and greedy and distrusting, and they can be better than that too.

I love Lois and Clark for really pushing elements of the story where you actually see the effect Superman has on the public. If people start to see him in a bad light, they start to loose their faith. They need that untouchable image to look up too.

And the fact is, a man can do that with or without powers. Kind of like Kick Ass. You can still inspire people.

This show is very outdated... I watch the pilot last night and was bored to death.

I think the best think right now for the superman franchise is to reboot this tv show. End Smallville. Do a brand new TV series that reboots the Superman franchise... maybe do 2-3 seasons... and then use the same principal actors for a feature film.

I just got Season one at best buy a few days ago for$20!,They have a lot of $20 for DC stuff including Smallville,I can't find the rest of the seasons and did not even know it was out on DVD But I've been looking for years!.

When it first came out I was a kid,And I thought it was amazing,Now.....I realize there's much silly stuff and very questionable writing along with pretty weak/low-budget special effects even for a 90's tv show and I think Cain's Superman was not all that great from character to look.

But I think there was plenty of good moments!,I think Cain did great with the Kent part and Hatcher was an alright Lane with the rest of the cast doing amazing for White/Jimmy/Cat/Ma&Pa Kent and Luthor.

I can't agree with this series being better than Smallville at all,But I can't say that it was so horrible either!,I still have fond memories of it and I feel they did a pretty decent job with what they had,I was&am pleased as a Huge Superman fan and I will happily have it in my collection.

I've started rewatching the seasons again. Season 1 still stands out as one of my favorites. Love all the undercover episodes. Particularly the one, where Lois becomes a Chorus Girl.

I used to watch this show back in the 90s. Never got the urge to watch it again. Never got into Smallville, either. I'd rather watch the Superman movies.

Started rewatching the series a few weeks ago. While a lot of it feels very very dated, it still has a great charm to it and was a great Superman series.

Watching this show again
The giddy smile on my face as result to that, priceless

I love the moment in the pilot episode after Jonathan Kent seeing Kal-El in suit for the first time, Jonathan and Martha both look at him as if they want to joke about how hard it will be to recognize Clark

You guys should read up on the history of Lois & Clark, it's quite fascinating.

For a start, it was created to kill off the Superboy TV show and get Superman back into Warner Bros.' hands. Second, it was originally titled Lois Lane's Daily Planet, and the focus was on her more than anything else. When it eventually made it to TV, it did poorly in the ratings and was almost cancelled, so at the start of the second season more action was put into the show. This didn't help the ratings either, but then it was discovered that audiences liked the Lois/Clark sexual tension, so that became the main part of the show. Eventually constant tease of them getting together and getting married annoyed viewers. A fifth season was due to be made, but cancelled at the last minute, in part because Warners wanted another Superman movie.

I think Dean Cain is really underrated as Clark/Superman.

John Shea was pretty good as Lex Luthor, the first season was the best season of the series . Mind ya Tempest was also a downright brilliant villain in Luthor's place.
