  • Superman has to deal with really smart kids!

    It's not one of the best eps in the first season but it's entertaining and the kid that play Amy Valdez is a really good actress taking in account how young she is. It's funny now that I saw the episode again how much she reminds me to Allison Mack (who plays Chloe Sullivan in Smallville), she looks like a younger sister of Allison, her facial perfomance is almost exact to Mack's. It's not an episode too much demanding to Superman but you would find some things entertaining.moreless

  • NOTES (1)


    • Socrates

      Socrates was considered by many to be the wisest man in Athens, though his wisdom mostly lay in the knowledge that there was little which he knew for certain. He did spend his life questioning everything in the attempt to learn the answers, however. And as a side note, he was supposed to be a very ugly man with a pug nose, making the name interestingly appropriate for the highly intelligent pig.
