Casting a fresh look on a timeless legend, this exciting action-packed update of the DC Comics Superman captures the daring exploits of the mysterious visitor from another planet and brings the city of Metropolis to life.

Originally airing on TV in the 1990s, this humorously romantic action/adventure series puts a modern twist on the time-honored, legendary superhero, bringing to life the comic book characters Clark Kent (Dean Cain), his superhuman alter-ego Superman and Lois Lane (Teri Hatcher), fiction's first lady of the press, in the most unrequited romance of all time...

 "Superman is what I can do. Clark is who I am."

| | See all DrMylesOBoogie's reviews (56)

Season 1 of this show is often overlooked and unappreciated due in largely to the people remembering how bad the show became by seasons 3 and 4. The show changed creative teams later on and with a new team came a new more child friendly direction that was a dumbed down affair with outrageous soap opera plots and campy villian of the week stories. Season 1 is very different and I'd even go as far to say that it's still the best live action adaptation of Superman.

Based largely on John Byrne's revamp of the Superman comics in the 80's the focus of action is shifted from Superman to Clark Kent's relationship with Lois Lane. Gone is the bumbling persona from the Chris Reeve films. Clark here is the true personality with Superman his secondary disguise used in his never ending battle for truth and justice.

It also features one of the best all round casts of the popular characters in the Superman mythos. Lane Smith breathed new life into Perry White as a tough southern man with a slight obsession with Elvis. John Shea also reinvented Lex Luthor as a younger successful, good looking threat that could rival Clark for Lois's affection's. Rounding off the support cast were Michael Landes who did a great job updating Jimmy Olsen and Tracy Scoggins who played an aggressive womaniser Cat Grant from the Superman comics that pursues Clark Kent. As for the two leads Dean Cain and Teri Hatcher were sensational. The chemistry and banter between the two is great and breathes life to the wonderful writing of season 1.

The love triangle between Clark/Lois/Superman is also fun to watch. Lois who has been unlucky in love in the past falls for the perfect celebrity guise of Superman while he yearns for her to accept him as he is in his normal persona of Clark Kent. Little does she know that the Superman she longs to be with is the work partner she spends most of her days investigating and reporting with.

The only criticism one could have is that the effects for a Superman show are not great but that criticism becomes very minor considering how rich all the other aspects such as the acting and writing of the show are.

 Brilliant!

I grew up watching this version of the Superman Franchise sat on the sofa on Saturday mornings with my Dad now maybe thats what makes it so special to me, I don't know? But all in all I think it's great and to me Dean Cain is the best Superman ever!

 just amazing

i definatly agree with the review above it is simply the best superman series. i have bough every season nd i watch them ova nd ova. i think that dean cain is the best. 4 sum reason he suits the charactor perfect. he plays it in such away u really do think clark and superman are 2 different men. i doubt there will be another series but if they did bring back the show it would be fantastic.

I bought this first series, never having seen it on TV, thinking it might actually be fun to watch a new take on the Superman franshise. How utterly wrong I was. The concept is difficult to get to work, since a Man of Steel would soon alter the power structure and economy of the entire world (a la Watchmen), but even ignoring that fact and sticking to the original, fairly unimaginative concept of Superman's creators one might expect a bit of whizz and sazzle in terms of special effects and a modern view of Lois's and Clark's relationship. Not so. It is hammy at best, and the special effects groan-worthy. Do not buy this crap.

After watching a fan made movie of superman I remembered how much I enjoyed this show in my early teens. So the pilot episode plays, and a little smile is slapped across my face.

It doesn't bother me the effects are in todays world quite bad or that the picture quality is slightly inconsistant, although for a 90s show quite good. I would have preferred blu ray but the dvds are good enough.

The main thing is the story in each episode is good there is nice light hearted humour and it has superman using his powers in different situations.

The best part about this show is the cast I love Teri Hatcher as Lois and Dean Caine makes a great superman, all the cast are great I only dislike the Cat woman I just find her to be annoying and wears tacky clothes if she was not in this show it would improve it but nothing can be perfect.

If you grew up in the 80s Or 90s and enjoyed this show back in the day you will enjoy it now, but I suspect if you're younger and were introduced to superman through Smallville I think this will fail to impress but you'll be the one missing out
