Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman

ABC (ended 1997)




  • Season 3 Episode 12: Never on Sunday

  • Nitpick: When the door of the plane is open, it seems strange that the passengers weren't pushed out by the escaping air, but perhaps they weren't high enough for the air pressure differential to effect them strongly. Sunday's hair doesn't even move in the breeze when he opens the door!

  • Season 3 Episode 11: Home Is Where the Hurt Is

  • Goof: When Lois' mother and Clark's mother go shopping, they get mugged. The thief takes their purses and bags, as Martha is running she is still carrying one shopping bag, but on returning to the apartment to tell what happened, no bags at all.

  • Goof: In one scene, just before the ending, Superman rescues the family by throwing a deadly microwave oven into space and as he is landing back home he is still wearing Clark Kent's shoes. In the next scene, he is wearing his Superman boots

  • Season 3 Episode 10: Virtually Destroyed

  • Lex Luthor wanted all his children to have an "X" in their name. He and Lois chose four possible names for their own children, the "X" names being Alexis, Roxanne, and Lynx. (The fourth name was Lois's own personal choice -- Clark!)

  • Goof: At one point, the muscular version of X rubs the blade of his knife with his left hand, but when the shot changes to Superman on the floor, X's left hand is pointed at Superman.

  • Goof When Lois and Clark share a virtual kiss, their arms stay relatively still, but their actual arms are moving quite a bit, as if they were stroking each other.

  • We see that Clark has a higher than human heart rate, but also enough control over his pulse to mimic the norm as needed.

  • We find out only Lois has had a sexual relationship, meaning Clark/Superman is a virgin.

  • Goof: When Lois and Clark are at Gabby's cafe in virtual world, Lois is seen sitting across from Clark. When the camera cuts to Jaxon and we see them on the monitor, she is sitting next to him, when we cut back to virtual world, they are across from one another again and then Lois moves her chair next to Clark.

  • Nitpick: When Jimmy and Superman enter the VR world to fight Jaxon, Jimmy sees Clark (Jaxon in disguise) without his glasses. Since Superman told Jimmy that no matter what, it wasn't Clark, wouldn't Jimmy piece together that Clark and Superman were one and the same?

  • Nitpick: In this episode, Clark works up the nerve to tell Lois he's still a virgin, but wouldn't it have made more sense for him to make that admission in "Chip Off The Old Clark", where a woman was accusing him of fathering her love child?

  • As Jaxon (disguised as Clark) enters Lois' virtual apartment you can see a toy shark swimming in the fish tank.

  • Season 3 Episode 9: Super Mann

  • Nitpick: When the awoken Germans first see Superman, one speaks German and still says "Superman". In German, he would have said "Ubermensch." Of course, if he were saying "Superman" as a name, rather than as a description, this would make sense, though it seems unlikely to have been the case.

  • When Lois and Clark are in the apartment discussing the wedding plans, Lisa throws the bomb, Clark changes into Superman and they go down to investigate. After they return to the apartment they discuss how they could die at any moment and start kissing passionately, then Jimmy knocks on the door. As they get up open it, Clark approaches and you see him zipping up his pants.

  • At the beginning of this episode, the same rescue scene is used with the same girl as it was in "The Neverending Battle" when she drops her bear, and goes back to get it, and the Daily Planet billboard falls but Superman holds it up with 1 hand.

  • Nitpick: In the episode "All Shook Up" from season One, it is stated that Clark can only hold his breath for 20 minutes, and therefore needs an oxygen mask when he goes to destroy the asteroid. In this episode, however, he flies to the sun and back, which he says to Lois that it could take hours, without the assistance of an oxygen mask. It's possible that he's increased his lung capacity through practice, however, or that when he said he could do 20 minutes, he was unaware how long he could actually hold it, and gave the length of time he had previously done so as a conservative guess.

  • Season 3 Episode 8: Chip Off the Old Clark

  • Nitpick: Clark works up the nerve to tell Lois he's still a virgin in "Virtually Destroyed", but wouldn't it have made more sense for him to make that admission in this episode?

  • Nitpick
    Clark finds some putty at Leigh Anne's which is taken by the police. But later at the Planet, Lois not only has the results, she has the evidence! The police would never let that out of their custody!

  • Goof: When Anonymous depresses the syringe of truth serum, some of the liquid shoots out the top. This is done to remove the air so that it is not injected into the person. However, in this case the plunger moves back and air returns to the syringe, which is not supposed to happen.

  • Season 3 Episode 7: Ultrawoman

  • Goof (probably deliberate):  The Social Security numbers listed for the Newtrich sisters have letters in them.  Real SSNs only have numbers in them.  Presumably, the producers listed impossible SSNs in order to make sure that they wouldn't accidentally show a legitimate SSN belonging to a real person.
