A Wonderful Show
on April 13, 2013
I first heard of Superman when I stumbled upon a comic book stand in a grocery store and seeing an image of a torn red cape with a letter "S" upon a woodstick that stood wedged between the rocks. That image alone captivated my curiosity and excitement, so I made it my goal to read those comics that came to be the story of "The Death of Superman." Since then, I wanted to read and see all things Superman at that time. Then, in late 1993, a television show called "Lois and Clark" came to my attention and I was quite excited to watch it as a teenager. At the time, it was kinda a big deal for me. Then, life happens and I moved on after four years of watching this show.
After watching "Smallville" in the last decade, I remembered the 90s show and now wanting to watch it again. So, I purchased this fourth season with all previous seasons purchased elsewhere - I have now just finished watching all of them and was very glad to have watched this story once more.
As one would know, when watching a television show as a kid, one's perception would be very different when watching the same show as an adult. As a kid, it was a first time and very confusing as I was very much starting out as a "fan," so to speak, and still learning how to live life, and I was very interested about Superman's relationship with a famed reporter, Lois Lane. In this show, their relationship would be developed and they are now married and in the end, on the way to have a family. (But, it would seemed that my favorite episodes are the ones that has H.G. Wells and all that interesting time-travel fun).
And, watching the fourth season takes me back to the first season and onward to see how Clark and Lois's relationship evolved and how they managed to overcome every obstacles that came their way. It's a story of a romantic couple.
I didn't care if the writing wasn't all that great, or the acting was a sort of semi-bad, or even the subplots seemed chewy chewy - I really enjoyed all of the episodes now as I did then. They were really fun to watch and a wonderful romantic comedy story in its own stead.
I'm very grateful to Deborah Joy LeVine for developing this story for the television, to bring Superman back to our screen after "Superboy" cancelled in 1992 (which I had never watched), and to Teri Hatcher and Dean Cain for their wonderful portrayals of Lois and Clark.
