If some TV network ever makes a new "Superman" series, they should do it in the same old-school style as "The Adventures of Superman". This series pre-dated "Star Trek" and "Batman" by a decade by being shot in color and showed viewers the many technical splendors (i.e. special effects) that can be done on a shoestring budget. Lois, Jimmy, Perry and Inspector Henderson were all memorable supporting cast members, a trait that would carry over to the 1990s "Lois & Clark" series (only Inspector Henderson would not appear in that installment). The same could not be said for the villains, which is probably just as well.
