  • Cheesy and unoriginal end to a wonderful and inspired tv show...

    Although it had its ups and downs, this 1990s version of the adventures of Superman made us laugh, drop a few tears now and then, and dream of having one day the same kind of relationship Lois and Clark share. But above all this, this series put the character of Lois up front, an independent self-made courageous woman, who falls for a guy without losing what makes her special. She even becomes the main reason of Superman’s greatness. And yet this last episode is far from being as great as the rest of the series. What a lame end for such an original show! (ok, a bit cheesy sometimes, but that’s what makes the Lois-Clark-Superman relationship so special!). Here we are, with all the Lane-Kent family gathered around this baby that suddenly came from nowhere. I can understand that the authors were eager to end the series so that Lois and Clark would live happily ever after. However, what I can’t understand is that they would be so uninspired to write such an “easy” end. Was it the lack of time? Were they told while writing the last episode of the fourth season that it would be the last? Couldn’t they find something a bit more realistic than a magical appearance of a baby? Anyway... They gave us some great moments it’s a shame the last one did not even come close...
