You won't be disappointed!
The story, direction, characters, and writing/dialogue is akin to taking a tranquilizer shot to the neck, but everything else was so well done.
An old-fashioned movie made with new-fashioned finesse.
Nothing against Dean Cain and Terri Hatcher, but I couldn't get into this series for several reasons.First of all Lois is always on this high horses "I'm better than you" mode, and from the very get go, Clark and Lois are already like husband and wife. There's just no sobriety in the story.The chemistry between Dean Cain and Terry Hatcher is not bad, but the way everyone and everything combine together lacks for a better word quality. Only thing that happens is this mild bickering between Clark and Lois, and White and Olson are just one tracked in the way they come into the story, and the way they act. They might think this is humorous, but it gets old really quickly.Compared to the relatively good character development of "Smallville" this program really didn't put any efforts in this area.The series gets old rather quickly for the above reasons. The producers should have given it a better treatment.
I remember seeing this on a number of occasions as it was always broadcast on BBC2 either midday or at around the same time as The Simpsons and Star Trek: Voyager, but I didn't watch very often. Basically this television series focuses almost more on the leading couple of the show, Clark Kent (Dean Cain) aka the greatest superhero on Earth and for Metropolis, the Man of Steel, Superman, and his love interest who works at the Daily Planet with him, Lois Lane (Teri Hatcher). So every episode we would see Lois and Clark either trying to get on with each other as colleagues, or slowly getting closer to each other, and of course some disaster occurring in the city in which Clark would don the blue suit and red cape to fly off and save the day, Lois sometimes might be a victim. Obviously it seems more apparent that Lois is in love with Superman much more than Clark himself, she almost completely ignores him, but she slowly develops feelings, and of course it was a near revolution when she finally found out his true identity (possibly recognising through the glasses). Also starring Eddie Jones as Jonathan Kent, K Callan as Martha Kent, Lane Smith as Perry White, Child's Play 3's Justin Whalin as Jimmy Olsen, John Shea as Lex Luthor, Michael Landes as Jimmy Olsen, Tracy Scoggins as Catherine 'Cat' Grant, Kenneth Kimmins as Dr. Bernard Klein, Tomorrow Never Dies' Tony Jay as Nigel St. John and Beverly Garland as Ellen Lane. Cain is good looking and nice, Hatcher is gorgeous and confident, and Shea when he was on was a cool villain, Cain and Hatcher together of course make a good on screen couple, awkward as Clark, close as Superman, and closer as the series went on, and the special effects to create disasters and Superman powers are good, overall it was a good fun romantic fantasy adventure show. It was nominated the Emmys for Outstanding Individual Achievement in Sound Mixing for a Drama Series (twice), Outstanding Individual Achievement in Costuming for a Series, Outstanding Individual Achievement in Directing in a Drama Series, and Outstanding Individual Achievement in Main Title Theme Music for Jay Gruska. Superman was number 72 on The 100 Greatest Pop Culuture Icons. Good!
"Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman" is a great show.Dean Cain is the perfect man for the role and Teri Hatcher looks really hot.If you are a superman fan you have to watch it but you should have in mind that the show started in 1993 so don't be too tough on the costumes and the special effects (actually supes costume is awesome).The rest of the cast is really good and i personally find Martha(K Callan) and Jonathan (Eddie Jones) Kent so adorable.Also the villains throughout the show are usually well written characters and there are no boring episodes.You will like them all.p.s. You will really enjoy this version of Clark Kent...
I never realized while this show was running what a homage it was to the original TV series with George Reeves, but it truly is in so many ways. There are dozens of little touches that echo the original show.For example, there is a character called Inspector Henderson, and at the end of the show the Superman cape is shown with a red "S" just as it was on George Reeve's costume, whereas Superman's actual cape has a yellow "S".Notice that Dean Cain's hairstyle as Superman is swept back just as George Reeve's was, even though the character never wore it that way in the comics.The very title is the NEW adventures of Superman, whereas the original was properly called, "The Adventures of Superman", and not merely Superman.At least one episode was a remake from the original series by the original writer, and both the original Lois Lane, and Jimmy Olsen appeared at least once each in the series.It has been pointed out that later in its run it began to unravel, and this is non unusual for any series, but this affectionate homage to both the characters and the earlier series is a fun romp that still holds up fairly well 15 years later.I might add that Smallville has continued the tradition of alluding to the original series countless times, and has even had Dean Caine appear, among many other actors with a Superman history.All in all, this series is a solid entry in the Superman story. I recommend you watch this, and not that dreadful Euro-Superman they tried to foist on us in Superman Returns.
