Introducing Dean Cain!
This show is why I love Dean Cain, and Terry Hatcher for that matter. I love how the show focused more on Clark then Superman. Because Clark was the person, Superman was just the persona. I liked that they really went with that.
Plus, I loved the relationship and banter with Clark in Lois in this one more then the others.
the show follows clark kent(dean cain)early adult years as superman.
this show is way before my time(born in 1990)but for some odd reason i like.
the acting is really good and dean cain has proven he is superman.some may say reeve is superman but for me those movies where to old and when i see movies form that time.i think they look horrible and the acting is awful.sorry reeve(r.i.p) but he didnt do superman for me.far as tom sure tom did some great work on smallville as superman but tom never let go sometimes playing superman.so for me when i came across this show and i saw dean.i watch a couple of eps and i was like dean cain is the only superman.
i prefer this show to the movies and smallville.just b/c dean played superman so much better.
the writing in this show is so much more closer to the real story of superrman than smallville.
the only thing i wish this show had was better special effects like smallville.
so the acting is good,the writing stays true to the real story of superman,and dean cain sure can play superman like its no one else business.
the only thing i hate where the special effects didnt look to hot sometimes.
the show lasted for a good 4 seasons.
i say give this show a shot:)the acting good,the writing is clever and dean cain plays his ass off as superman.dean cain even wheres the superman suit in the show:)
dean cain is superman for me.moreless
A cute show...
I enjoyed this show. If you were wondering why it was cancelled, read on.
the show lasted four seasons. Its first two seasons had descent ratings while its third had great and its fourth had dissmal. Why? Well, the original concept of the show was a story that involved the two characters Lois and Clark. Superman was sort of a side problem that had to be dealt with (albeit creativly) by the writers. At its core it was a romance with a bit of scifi. the paradigm shifted in the third season with the faux wedding. the show became scifi with a bit of romance. Because the core audience that the show had accumulated expected one thing and got another, this turned them off. The ratings slipped, and the execs made poor decisions like changing its time slot and then its day.
This show was doomed to have so-so ratings and a short life span. Romances expire after the pursuit is settled, and so not only did the paradigm shift contribute to its downfall, but the realization that the 'chase' was over.moreless
Best Superman series ever!
This is definitely the Man of Steel's best series ever made! Unlike most series of its kind, the series had action, humour and super heroes and bad guys for everyone's tastes. Dean Cain and Teri Hatcher made a perfect combination as Clark Kent and Lois Lane. The rest of the cast like Lane Smith as Perry White, Michael Lands as Jimmy Olsen and John Shea as Lex Luthor also made this series one of the biggest successes ever on Television. The series portrays the action, following the origins and adventures of Superman. Although it only lasted for four seasons, it is still regarded as the base for many shows of its kind. In a scale from 1 to 10, I give this one a 9... The reason why give it a 9, it's because it only lasted 4 seasons. Defineitely better than Smallville, that I can tell you!moreless
This show was SUPER man!
This show is in my top 5 favourite shows of all time!
I remember when it first aired in 1993 (I was only 11 years old at the time) - and this is the show that had one of the biggest influences on my childhood.
This is the kind of show that the whole family could get into - the writers knew what they were doing, it had a terrific cast [Teri Hatcher / Dean Cain / Lane Smith & Justin Whalin], and almost every episode was superb! However, this show did break the Superman tradition - when Lois finally realised who Clark Kent really was (Superman), and married him.
I was disappointed when they cancelled the show, I had never missed an episode in its entire original run. Oh well, 4 seasons was nothing to sneeze at.
It is great that they have now released the complete series to DVD.moreless
This show is the best show i've ever seen!
Lois and Clark The new adventures of superman is the best show i've ever seen, it should of had more seasons. I am compleatly hooked on it and i've seen every episode loads of times. This is the best superman show i've seen it focuses on Lois, Clark and Superman relationship mostly and also you get to know Jimmy, Perry and the Kents. This show has everything; action, comedy and romance. The parts were all played well Teri hatcher played the perfect Lois Lane and Dean Cain played a great Clark Kent/ Superman and he is so fit!!! They updated Clark a bit and now he is not so dorky and is very nice which i think is better then before. This show is the greatest and i recomed everyone watches it i wish i was still doing more seasons!moreless
Yet another live action chapter in the Superman legacy which threatened to further destroy the charm of the character.
With the backing of a major TV network, ABC, in a primetime slot and film in the late-90's with access to potential cutting edge visual effects, this incarnation of Superman was a complete waste of resources.
It was a series that staggered on for 4 years and ended with an unresolved cliffhanger.
Each episode was more pathetic than the next, with juvenille tounge-in-cheek one-liners and horrible C-list guest stars... typically comedians... as the most uninventive villans ever.
The only element of this series that kept it alive was the romance between Lois and Clark.
As for Superman himself... the fact that a man from another planet arrived on Earth with magically powers was the only beleiveable concept in the show.
The character was reduced to a lazy idiot who did nothing more than push the villan over onto the ground at the end of each episode and fold his arms across his chest with a "stern glare".
Literally every single episode grew more and more frustrating as Superman refused to ever use the most basic of his powers in the most dire circumstanes.
And if the weekly villan ran away... Superman refused to ever use his super-hearing, speed or vision to follow or track.
But if Lois Lane ever wanted food from China or chocolates from Sweden, Clark would regularly appear with these items in mere seconds.
The usual story lines left you literally screaming at the TV... "Why are you standing there, Superman, do something!!!"
My only hope was that the writers and producers of this series were left out of work at the end of it's run, for their effortless and untalented approach to the storylines and plot points.
This series was only watchable because the majority love Superman in general and because the actors playing Lois and Clark were insanely hot.
So hot, in fact, you couldn't believe they waited 3 years to bang each other. Another point that made the series freakishly childish.
Now if only they could make another live action Superman-based series that never... EVER will actually show Superman in it... endlessly frustrating viewers all over again...
... and so lives on Smallville.moreless
A great show!! Sadly, it has been forgotten by many, but it still holds a special place in my heart.
I first started watching Lois and Clark ages ago when I was just a little kid. My babysitter introduced me to the show, and instantly I got hooked! I watched it until about midway of season 3, when I went on vacation and came back I couldn't seem to find it on TV anymore. I sadly forgot about the show, and it escaped my mind for years. Then one day about two years ago, I remembered the show I used to love so much. I researched the show and voila, I started rewatching it and got re-hooked on it. Anyways, this show has it all, action, adventure, comedy, romance, you name it, it's all on Lois and Clark! So many of the episodes are classic, very well done even though the special effects aren't the best. I normally don't like superhero stuff but Lois and Clark is the exception! Teri and Dean are wonderful together, and their acting is great! I would certainly recommend this show to anyone, and hope others still love and remember this wonderful show the way I do.moreless
