Casting a fresh look on a timeless legend, this exciting, action-packed update of Superman captures the daring exploits of the mysterious visitor from another planet and brings the city of Metropolis to life.]]>
The dramatic arc of this inaugural season is "the fall of the house of Luthor," but at its heart is the triangle between Clark, Lois, and the charming snake Lex Luthor (John Shea), who, in the pilot episode, Superman vows to bring to justice ("Let the games begin," Luthor responds). Further complicating matters is that Superman has literally swept Lois off her feet. But until the episode "Barbarians at the Planet," in which Lex proposes to Lois, Lois professes her love to Superman, and Clark confesses his love to Lois, Lois & Clark breezily tweaks the touchstones of Superman iconography. "I've never noticed it before," a "drunk with love" Lois observes to a bespectacled Clark in "Pheremone, My Lovely," "You look a lot like Superman." Though special effects have progressed since the 1990s, Lois & Clark has lost little of its sparkle and panache, thanks to its super leads, whose fledgling careers soared to dizzying new heights. --Donald Liebenson

This show has a completely new take on the beginnings of the Characters. It is creative in a way that I believe would make Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster proud. I believe this because I have the distinction of having Parents that not only went to School with both of the creators, but were their friends and were there when Joe and Jerry first came up with the idea of Superman. I have grown up with all sorts of stories of how Superman came to be in the first place. My Father's brother was in Art class with Joe and Jerry and witnessed the very first sketches of the man of steel. Therefore my feelings of this new and innovative creation are very personal.
Given this information, I must say that Lois and Clark are absolutely fabulous. The set designs and costuming ring very true to the original as well as adding it's own mark. It is done in a way that will sustain a certain timelessness. The use of the 1940's and the current times combined together are ingenious. This was a very clever way of giving the show a look and feel that will last forever.
The stories may not follow the exact history of the original Superman, but nonetheless are so very creative that they make you want to watch every episode because of it's freshness. They are exciting, humorous, and romantic making the show enjoyable to watch. The sexual tension between Lois and Clark not only makes one root for them to get together, but also encourages us to not to miss a single episode.
Dean Cain is the perfect Clark Kent/Superman and adds a down to earth quality that everyone can relate to.Read more ›
Dean Cain is an excellent actor who can easily pull a 'brooding' look while also sounding intelligent (duh, Cain actually went to Princeton!). Building on the "Lois's" of the past, Teri Hatcher is an independent and assertive career woman (think a female version of Woodward and Bernstein rolled together) who still senses that she is missing something from her 'successful' life---Mr. very right!
While she eventually does find out her coworker's secret, she is annoyed by his frequent disappearances and 'strange' behavior during this season.
Also unlike before, Clark himself now is supposed to look very hot to the viewers. Gone are the days of the bookish 'nerd' who characterized earlier film, radio, and comic versions of the Kansas farm boy with a very special secret. In those versions, Superman was held up as the ideal, but women were not supposed to lust after Clark. This Clark is both brains and brawn, the latter is shown off very nicely in his spandex-like 'Superman' outfit.
Thankfully, that costume appears to be mostly Cain's real body instead of some over pumped Hollywood prop!
You can tell that ABC..etc really spent a lot of time, money, and thought putting together this series because the sets look very detailed.
We don't have to put up with annoying inconsistencies which have insisted that Ma and Pa Kent are capable of driving from Smallville into Metropolis (which is supposed to be New York City!Read more ›
