I grew up watching this show, so naturally I had to get it.
Sometimes the show doesn't stand up to the test of time, and it was only good in your memories... and you discover that by rewatching the show, etc. But thankfully that wasn't the case here for me. When I watched though the entire season, I found that it still stood up on it's own merits and were still watchable even as an adult. I never realized how many adult jokes or innuendos they put into the show until I re-watched it as an adult! So it had me chuckling at some parts as we watched Clark Kent juggle being Superman and a reporter at the same time.
However... some parts of the show is a little dated. You can tell this was a show made in the 90's.... due to all the fashion, as well as how they incorporated some of the classic golden age comic fashion. They also play it fast and loose with the sense of timing, because you can't tell if it was a week, if a month or a year passed in that universe... which leads to Clark and Lois's relationship sometimes feeling a tad rushed, as well as Lois's relationship with Lex Luthor. well, I was given the impression that at least three months passed during season one. I could see Lex Luthor just impulsively asking Lois Lane to marry him despite the fact that they barely spent any time together... because he strikes me as the kind of rich man who just goes for anything he wants, and doesn't want to wait. However, Having Clark Kent ask Lois to marry him too after they spent 3 months working together?
Call me old fashioned, but I felt that there should had been more build-up between Clark Kent and Lois Lane before there was any talk of marriage between them.
That said, those are the only complaints I had about the show... and it left me wanting more when I finished season one. So definely buying season two to see what else happens. :)
