Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman

ABC (ended 1997)




  • Season 3 Episode 4: When Irish Eyes Are Killing

  • Nitpick: The mask is Irish, which would mean that the emeralds were, too. But how did Claudius end up with them? It's mentioned that the Romans broke pieces up and reused them, but the Romans never went to Ireland, and only controlled a small portion of England and Wales during the reign of the Emperor Claudius.

  • Goof
    Veronica Kipling says that Claudius was the Roman Emperor from 45-54 AD, even though he was the Roman Emperor from 41-54 AD. On other TV websites, it has her saying that it was 41-54 AD, but you can distinctly hear her say 45-54 AD.

  • When Clark is throwing darts with Patrick, he throws the first dart left-handed and the other two right-handed.

  • Goof: At the first auction, Jimmy asks Lois to loan him twenty dollars. She takes a bill out of her purse and hands it to Jimmy. The bill that she hands him is actually a $100 bill, but when the cameras change we can see that Jimmy is holding a one dollar bill.

  • Goof: When Lois is out on her date with Patrick, she takes a sip of wine, and then puts the glass on the table. You can see that the glass is only about a third full. However, when the glass slips off the table and Clark uses super-speed to catch it, the glass is now full.

  • Season 3 Episode 3: Contact

  • Lois Lane lives at:
    1058 Carter Avenue
    Metropolis, USA

  • Goofs
    While flying in a helicopter, there is so much noise from the propellers that all conversations have to take place using headsets, but Lois and Clark talk without them. Maybe Clark would be able to hear Lois, but Lois would have to lip read to understand Clark. Also, Lois is not wearing a seatbelt. Since the conversation is about Lois taking risks, Clark should have noticed that immediately, since there's no door to keep her inside!

  • Goof: While looking through the magazine articles, Clark picks up another one and comments, "Another one about trade barriers." Actually, it's pretty easy to see that he's looking at an advertisement for an SUV.

  • Season 3 Episode 2: Ordinary People

  • Goof: Superman asks Lois whether anyone else knocks on her third-floor window.  But Lois's apartment number is later shown to be 501, implying that she lives on the fifth floor.

  • Nitpick: Lois has a brown belt in Tae Kwan Do, so why does she hold off attacking Nurse Heidi from behind until she discovers a loose brick? Surely she could take Heidi using her martial arts ability, from behind and with surprise!

  • Nitpick: When Clark reveals his identity to Spencer Spencer and tries to use his heat vision on the candle as proof, his heat vision is weakened by nearby Kryptonite. But this shouldn't be so, since it's inside a lead box.

  • Even though Spencer Spencer, the Doctor, and Heidi are dead, there is at least one guard still alive who potentially knows Clark's secret.

  • Season 3 Episode 1: ... We Have a Lot to Talk...

  • Goof: After Lois defuses the bomb, the trigger reads 3:02. As she crawls out from under the table several seconds later, the clock resumes ticking down to 3:01.

  • When Superman catches the ring in space, he is visibly breathing in and out. But in the season one episode "All Shook Up", he needs an oxygen mask to breath in space. But perhaps he's at the farthest reaches of the Earth's atmosphere, and can still get a minute amount of oxygen from it.

  • Nitpick: Lois should have suffocated and frozen in the sky since she could not be enveloped in Superman's forcefield so far from him. She should also have gotten severe frostbite, though it's possible that Superman could have found a way to radiate enough heat to keep her warm enough.

  • When the Church's are standing outside the museum, a workman, carrying a portrait, passes in front of them, and the painting he's carrying is Gainsborough's "Yellow Boy" one of the unknown paintings that was in Lex's collection in "The Foundling" episode.

  • Goof: At the end of part one of this story arc, Lois was wearing a necklace with a little heart. It doesn't make an appearance in this episode, however, even though mere seconds elapse between the end of "ATAI" and the beginning of "WHALTTA".

  • Continuity Break: Lois' response to Clark's proposal is different at the beginning of this episode from what it was at the end of "And the Answer Is...". They filmed three different endings for "ATAI", and used the "Clark..." one there and "Who's asking, Clark or Superman?" for "WHALTTA". The third response, with Lois just saying yes, was not used.

  • Season 2 Episode 22: And the Answer Is...

  • In this episode, Superman avails of one of his most infrequently-used abilities: his super-acute olfactory sense. He is able to notice the faint scent of a flower in the air of his apartment and then trace that exact scent back to another source along a busy Metropolis street.

  • (Superman follows the scent of a flower, when he finds it)
    Superman: Didn't you play for the Bills? (talking about the Buffalo Bills football team)
    Flower Seller: Yes, until I got a knee injury.

    In real life, Dean Cain had to quit his profesionnal career with the Buffalo Bills due to a knee injury. This exchange is the first of three references to Dean Cain's short-lived football career that were made during the run of the series.
