  • The Man of Steel's first appearance on the small screen

    8.0
    Before Brandon Routh, before Tom Welling, before Dean Cain, and even before Christopher Reeve, there was George Reeves. Reeves, for a generation of Americans, was Superman. I've recently picked up all four sets (six seasons) of this television show, and I have to say I have been pleasantly surprised. In today's environment, Superman is painted as melancholy, distant, and reserved. Reeve's Superman is decidedly not that - trading fisticuffs with the baddies, and not spending too much time on feeling lonely. While I enjoy the more mature and contemporary takes on the Man of Steel, I can't help but watch this old show with a sense of wonder - for many, this is where their love of Superman began. It's for that reason I find the show to be great, because I appreciate the origins of the show. The sense of nostalgia can be permeating - especially considering Reeves future - but I still recommend checking it out.
