Editorial Reviews

With its successful first season having secured its status as a breakout syndicated hit, the Salkinds initiated some sweeping changes for the show’s sophomore season. The biggest of the changes was the arrival of a whole new Superboy in the person of Gerard Christopher. Bringing with him a fan’s enthusiasm and delight for all things Kryptonian and aided by a writing staff that included true DC Comics superstar scribes (including Andy Helfer, Cary Bates, Denny O’Neil, and Mike Carlin), Christopher sent the show soaring up into ever-more super-heroic heights. Familiar four-color threats faced by our boy Kal-El include a now follicle challenged Lex Luthor (who makes Lana his bride decades before they did it in Smallville), Metallo, Bizarro, Mr. Mxyzptlk and Yellow Peri in this complete 26-Episode, 3-Disc Collection. Also starring Stacy Haiduk and Ilan Mitchell-Smith.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

This product is expected to play back in DVD Video "play only" devices, and may not play in other DVD devices, including recorders and PC drives.

Those of you who were disenchanted with this groundbreaking series, I ask you to please give it a second chance. This second season began new changes which completely took the series in a new direction to become one of the very best incarnations of 'Superman' ever put to film.
When executive producer Ilya Salkind created this series originally it was set at Schuster university. The first season was cheesy and the special effects had much to be desired. The show was in danger of cancellation by the end of the first season so drastic measures were taken to save the show. What they did was genius.
Gone was John Haymes Newton as the lead role replaced by Gerard Christopher. Gone was the poorly casted Scott Wells and replaced by the most noticeable and greatest cast change Sherman Howard who now played a truly sinister Lex Luthor who was inspired by the great Jack Nicholson's portrayal of the Joker in the first Batman movie which, at the time, was still fresh in people's minds. Beautiful Stacy Haiduk still played Lana Lang. Gone also was TJ White replaced by Andy McAlister.
This season looks like a completely different show that included foes taken directly from the comic book pages of Superman magazines such as Bizarro and Metallo. The stories were much more written as true Superman stories. As the series progressed further in this season we have effects that rival the Christopher Reeve films, particularly the dismal "Superman 4" which had no budget for flying scenes. Although the series was about SuperBOY, it definitely was written as SuperMAN stories. In my own opinion it was much better written than the later series "Lois & Clark" which replaced it.

Since this series was never syndicated, finding ways of watching it were tough to say the least. The first season was all we had available on DVD, but that was probably the weakest of all of them.

Sherman Howard makes a welcome change as the new Lex Luthor. His origin of becoming Lex Luthor is a little whacky, and conveniently never referred to again, but he makes a great villain nonetheless. Gerard Christopher taking over the title character is a little awkward if you've just come off of the first season, but he grows into the role nicely as the series progresses. And the stories begin to mature here, as well. They're not as dark in tone was the 3rd and 4th seasons, but they're definitely less campy than the 1st season.

As far as the DVD itself, first of all, I was surprised to find that these are NOT DVD-R's as their description says. These are regular old, factory-pressed DVDs. The audio and picture are greatly improved from the first season, too. You can tell that the episodes are still transferred from the old videotape masters like the 1st season, but the picture is sharpened and the colors look a lot brighter.

And yes, these stories are a little campy, but they can also be a little dark at times. Nostalgia does play a big factor here, but these are just plain, enjoyable stories to watch. I'm really hoping they release the next two seasons.

I had waited so long on Warner to bring out the second season of this series that I had given up. I'm very glad they finally decided to listen to the fans and do a second season. The second season (and season 3 and 4) are much better than season 1. If you are a superman fan (especially of the late seventies version of superman) I think you will like this series. It is NOT dark, it is NOT outstanding special effects, but it IS a very enjoyable story and fun to watch.

Oh and contrary to another viewer's review these discs ARE DVRs (which you can plainly see by looking at the surface of the discs), but they are well done and look very much like factory-made DVDs based on the design and quality of the artwork. I had no problems playing these discs on my Blu-ray player. Warner, please don't make us wait years to bring out the final two seasons of this great series. Highly recommended.

I love this show. If you are a fan of Superman you will love this show. Now I need season 3 and 4 to complete my collection.

It seems like forever since "Superboy" Season one was released on Dvd (in actuality, it was released around the time Bryan Singer's "Superman Returns" was making its way into movie theatres and home Dvd). Now with the upcoming release of Christopher Nolan/Zack Snyder's "Man Of Steel", we get finally get Season two. As another reviewer mentioned, Season two is almost an entirely different show with improved writing, visual effects, and a new cast (with the exception of Stacy Haiduk as Lana Lang, and a return guest appearance by Michael J. Pollard as the hillarious imp, Mr. Mxyzptlk). Sherman Howard is cast as an artificially aged Lex Luthor, whose portrayal of Luthor is reminisent of Jack Nicholson's Joker ("Batman", 1989), and Gerard Christopher replaces John Haymes Newman from Season one, as Superboy/Clark Kent. Ian Mitchell-Smith ("Weird Science") replaces T.J. White as Clark's new roomate, Andy McCalister. Gerard Christopher's Kent is modeled on Christopher Reeves' Kent, playing the character as a wimpy Uber-nerd, the antithesis of the heroic Superboy. Unlike the previous Superman television incarnation, "The Adventures of Superman," from the fifties, where Superman mainly dealt with ordinary criminals, "Superboy" battles super-villians with super/magical powers. "Superboy" has the distinction of being the only Superman television show produced the Salkind brothers, who gave us the original four Superman movies. This Dvd set has all 26 episodes from Season two, but unfortunately no extra features, which is why I must give it four and not five stars.
