  • This episode featured a villian that uses sound as his weapon, and holds the city hostage.

    This was a great episode. No super villian here, only a guy that had sound as a weapon. It was great to see how much sound pounding Superman could take. Seeing Lois (Teri Hatcher) as a trashy brunette was very cool to say the least. All-in-all, a great episode to watch.

    • Michael des Barres, who plays rock and roller Lenny Stoke, was the lead singer of several bands, including Detective and Power Station (replacing Robert Palmer).


    • Camden: (to Lois and Clark) Are you my 'Appointment in Samarra'?!
      The story Appointment in Samarra, by Somerset Maugham, tells the story of a man who meets Death in Baghdad and tries to hide from him in the town of Samarra, not knowing that Samarra was where he was fated to die.

    • Lenny: (as he uses sound as a weapon against Superman) This is your brain, and this is your brain on sound. Any questions?

      This is a nod to a popular anti-drug campaign commercial from 1987 that used a visual of an egg as representing a person's brain, and then the same egg being fried as a person's brain on drugs.

    • Lois: The nutty professor? Come on.

      Lois is referring to the 1963 comedic film The Nutty Professor, starring Jerry Lewis as a crazed scientist whose serum makes him physically attractive (temporarily).

    • Stoke: I have this problem, it's kind of a Rain Man thing.

      Rain Man is the title of a 1988 Academy-award winning film. One of the main characters, Raymond, is terrified of flying in airplanes and this fear is later important to the film's plot.

    • Jimmy: Wow. The first sound that can put a whole room to sleep...
      Lois: No, I think Yanni did it first.

      Yanni is a "New Age" keyboard artist who many consider to be quite boring.
