  • A great eppisode of a great Hero.

    This was the first eppisode I ever watched all the way through because I say the begining of Foundling and i enjoyed that.

    This eppisode is one of the better eppisodes because the story deals with issues of the Daily Planet rather than life threataning things and diasters like super hero things usually are like.

    A clever twist was when Clark went to work at the metropalise star under cover because it was surprisingly simple.

    On the hole it was a great eppisode as usual for this serise. The serise has been a long one and i have enjoyed the small amount that i have seen.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Goof: When Linda King asks Superman about saving a woman from a burning hotel, he says the visibility was bad, and that the woman had three children. But he was shown catching her on the ground, not up high, so visibility (which seemed fine in the shots shown) could not have been an issue. And how did he find out about those three children since all he does is catch her and walk away to be interviewed?!

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Lois: (when she learns Clark hasn't really become partners with Linda) So you mean that I've been having all of these feelings for nothing?!
      Clark: What feelings?
      Lois: Forget it! I'm not feeling them anymore.

    • Linda: Speaking of bodies, that partner of yours? Great one- buns of steel!
      Lois: How would you know?!
      Linda: You don't need Superman's x-ray vision to figure that out.

    • Lois: (in a high pitched voice) How can you be so calm?!
      Perry: What's my choice?
      Lois: Well, since I've been here, I've seen you scream, I've seen you throw things, I even saw you put your fist through the conference wall once.

    • Perry: The Star has been selling twice as many newspapers as the Planet, both newsstand and subscription! Can anybody explain this to me?
      Lois: Bigger type, smaller words?

    • Clark: You should be happy to see this
      Lois: OK, I see it, when do I get happy?
