At age 53 I was glad when Warner finally had an authorized release of my childhood favorite series, The Adventures of Superman. Overall the color quality is very good to excellent in light of the prints being 50+ years old. It would have been a nice gesture to us baby boomers if Warner had taken the time to digitally repair the scratches, pops and hisses in the opening scenes and some of the stock footage used throughout the series. Season one rocks with the black and white film noir style of filming. The sets in Season 5 and 6 are rich in color,style and expense. The cars used in the last two years would be a collectors dream now! Generally the transfer to DVD is primo. I would hope that when it comes time to re-release the authorized series in the future, Warner will spend a little money and digitally remaster the prints. Maybe if Warner searches their vaults a little closer they might find more out takes and bloopers to add as bonus material.

Overall this is a very good release, long overdue and greatly appreciated.

Note: I know I already reviewed the first season but that was mainly for the feature "Superman and the Mole Men". This way, I can give my opinion on the series as a whole.

Another superhero classic, made in a time when television was young, there were good actors and special effects weren't all done with the computer. This series was groundbreaking in many ways, which I'll touch upon when I get to it. For those who haven't seen the series yet, a little info: none of Superman's villains (Lex Luthor, Brainiac, General Zod, Mr. Mxyzptlk, etc.) don't appear, the character instead fighting scientists, foreign agents, corrupt politicians (again, when aren't they evil) or thugs. Also, the Fortress of Solitude never appears (that didn't come around in the comics until 1958) and Kryptonite is used rarely as a weapon against Superman. First I'll talk about the actors.

George Reeves is my personal favorite Superman actor, portraying him with a sense of believability, both in and out of the costume. I already talked about this in my reviews for Superman: The Movie and the individual first season release, so I won't reiterate here. Between the two Lois', I prefer Phyllis Coates. She played the character with spunk and attitude, character traits not present in women on TV back then and traits that I really don't see in other actresses who would play the part (other than Margot Kidder). Coates' Lois, when captured, would actually put up quite a good fight and probably could've gotten out of the situation, but thanks to Superman, she doesn't sustain as many bruises. Noel Neill plays her as your typical damsel in distress, but since she stays with the show longer, she's able to develop the character more (like in the episode "The Wedding of Superman", where Lois' real emotions come out).

A few years back, I watched these episodes of the Superman series on a black and white television. Every week during the season a new show would air and capture the interest of many a young viewer and probably quite a few adults as well.

While it's not quite the same to see these shows now, I find that I have a smile on my face the whole time an episode is playing. I purchased this series in April 09 and have 4 or 5 episodes left to view, I've been sort of rationing the shows to make them last longer.

The overall quality of these shows is much better that the quality of the television reception that we experienced in that era, what with the antenna on the fringe of the stations' reception area. The video in some of the shows displays washed out color then returns to good , I don't know why, but it's not a reason to put off purchasing this set if you're a fan of the Superman portrayed by George Reeves-the real Superman!

What can I say, other than Fantastic? All six seasons of coolness. Great classic and a geat price to. Pure, fun entertainment. The older I get the more I turn to movies and tv from the past. No cussing, NO sex, NO modern day gutter minded trash. Just well done, fun. Not only that but it has other elements I love. Lots of Fedora hats and those really cool old cars. A classic time in American history. Every episode is five stars to me.

I cannot understand why they are charging so much for all 6 seasons together when if you buy them separately they come out to $85.97 which is a savings of $58.02. I guess they figure most people won't do the math and just order all the seasons together out of convenience.

The set of the 6 seasons of The Adentures of Superman are a reminder of simpler times and a reminder of my childhood. Considering the technology of the times, the producers worked a miracle of TV viewing enjoyment.

Why is this price so high?

You can buy the complete 1-4 for 59, and the 5 & 6 for 25, totaling $85 for the first six season?

Someone please explain

I am thrilled to bits with this purchase
They are really good quality, very clear picture and sound
It takes me back to my childhood. Fantastically funny when on a 50" plasma screen you can see all the imperfections etc that you would never have seen on a 12 black and white back in the 50's
The fight scenes were not done by George Reeve - on the large screen you can see it is a "stand in" - then suddenly reverts back to George Reeve
We are both thrilled to have this set
Well worth the money

So they raised all the prices
You do that and you boycott the entire retail agency. Amazon's prices are NOT written in stone, nor is anyone else's. You want inexpensive all day/every day, buy from a Marketplace Client with a less than 30% rating of reliability.
