The Adventures of Superboy

Show Summary

This TV series was based on the teenage Clark Kent attending college while trying to sweep Lana Lang off her feet. Though you might think it is similar to the current Superman incarnation 'Smallville' but this series also followed the teenage years of Superman himself (Dubbed at this point 'the Boy of Steel')

  • This show not only brings back my childhood, but reinforces my belief a man can fly. yea season one was a little cheesy but after that, it was amazing what they were doing and this was the early 90's. I got hooked, if only the other seasons would come outmoreless

    This show was great, along with the Flash series that was on around the same time. the work they did with props, and cameras before the major influx of cgi, and enourmous tv budgets, its phenomenal. I hope they release the other seasons on dvd, to not only perserve this superman legacy and time in history, but to show yet another example of a show character driver, not Cgi or special effects festival. I give this show a high rating, i admit the first season is a little hard to get through but after that it grows by leaps and bounds, yeah it freezes you somewhat in a time period, but there are plenty of good classics that do that. So take the time to review these videos for yourself if you can find any past the first season, i have some on vhs, and maybe their will be a petition or something for the release of more on dvd. just give it a shot. Any superman fan I think would at the very least respect them.moreless
  • A Weak Show

    5.0
    Superboy was a really weak show. Bad plots and actors. The plots usually seemed to be very uninteresting. I dont know where got this guy from but he was a nobody. He was ok but it was like come on. There were some ok episodes. Mostly never that good. The effects werent all too good. The guy who played Lex was pretty crappy. The show starts out with just him being Superboy. It doesnt have a origin story til later. It was not even that interesting. I know it was the 80's but still seemed liked it could of been much better. In the end one very mediocre show.moreless

    i did not get to watch it very often, i did not get the channel that it came on in very cleary. i caught a few episodes and the ones i saw i liked. i hear the show is going to start coming out on dvd. i guess i'll bite the bullet and buy them so i can see the whole series.
  • After two sad episodes, we needed an happy one and we got it.

    After two sad episodes, we needed an happy one and we got it.

    The plot did not really advance, but it was funny to listen. He was crazy because of is ring, Pete of Fall Out Boys making up with the girls, The both "lost" in the forest. In short, this episode made me laugh.
  • THE NEW SUPERMAN MOVIE IS FINALLY HERE! BRANDON ROUTH STEPS INTO THE MOVIE ROLE MADE MOST FAMOUS BY CHRISTOPHER REEVE. IF YOU WERE THERE TO SEE SUPERMAN THE MOVIE OR SUPERMAN II IN THE MOVIE THEATERS, YOU'RE AWARE OF THE EXCITEMENT THE NEW MOVIE IS GENERATING AND PROBABLY CAN'T WAIT TO SEE HIM AGAIN ON THE SILVER SCREEN.

    It's a Movie! It's a TV Show!
    It's Superman!
