By Mark D. Serbin on January 6, 2007
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).

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.

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!

Only three stars due to the packaging. The set comes in 4 cardboard cases that fold, not plastic cases with trays. They were well packaged; first each set was wrapped in plastic individually, then the four sets taped together and wrapped again in plastic securely. That said, Season 1 was easy to open, however the hub for disc 1 was broken and the disc scratched. The scratches did not cause any playing issues, but I had to tape the disc back on the hub to keep it from slipping around.
Season 2 was easy to get open as well, but the other two sets, Seasons 3/4 and 5/6 were not. Those outer covers were way too tight and even by carefully trying to get them open it pulled the outer cardboard holder apart at the glued area. I also tried opening the flap on the other side of each set, but they also were tight and sustained some damage.
I have made my own sets for dvds using the same cardboard technique for outer cases but use slim dvd cases to the hold the discs. This is the way most of the sets I buy usually come and any damaged cases are easily replaced if needed. Since the items are shipped I believe that is where the majority of the damage is caused. Especially when shipped during the winter to colder locations which makes the plastic more brittle and vulnerable.
Regarding the programs themselves I would give them 5 stars so far (I have only viewed the first two discs due to the scratches). The picture is really great considering the age of the show. It is really fun to be able to recite the "Truth, Justice and the American Way" motto that Superman fights for described in each opening. A far cry from what is on TV these days.
