Great show for it's time......
Verified purchase
Good show for the time. The show really did not concentrate on Superman per say, it was more about Lois Lane and Clark Kent's relationship, professionally and them falling for each other. If you are into Arrow, Flash, and these other new DC entries that do focus more on the heros abilities, this might not be the show for you. It's more of a romantic comedy dressed in a Superman serial. It's not an "action" series, the effects are almost laughable. But it kept you interested because of Lois and Clark-would they or wouldn't they fall in love? It was the tension between the two that had you coming back week after week. For the record, I do watch most of the newest DC tv stuff(as well as Marvel), and they are far more gritty now. And I like all of them. Lois and Clark is far less serious, more campy, but I appreciate it for what it was back in the day. Long live Lois and Clark!

Superman was never more fun!

Great memories of Superman in the 90's! Before "Smallville" there was "Lois & Clark, making the Superman story a little more realistic and fun!!! I loved the first season. It was funny and exciting. Dean Cain was good as the title character "Superman". Although he didn't appear on "Crisis on Infinite Earth's", he would have made a welcome addition to the crossover event.

A Great Superman Series from the 90s
Verified purchase
Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman is one of my favorite shows, and one that I rewatch every few years because I particularly enjoy the chemistry of the leads.

At its core, this series is a romantic adventure comedy of the mid 90s, and it comes with all the upsides and downsides of this (if the cast of characters had cell-phones available, many of the plots wouldn't work). You won't see many CGI effects, and while it's true the few you see don't necessarily age well, it's still a fun romp to enjoy. There are a lot of shows on today that are very emotionally heavy, and while I enjoy them as well, I find one of the reasons I enjoy Lois & Clark is that it's simply a fun romp, like a popcorn flick of a romantic comedy that happens to involve Superman. Many of the episodes are "villain-of-the-week" style stories with campy, somewhat two-dimensional characters, but it works as a serial, and there are certainly story arcs, but they don't have as much depth as say those of Smallville.

All-in-all, if you like superheroes, secret identities, romance, and the 90s, Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman might be up your alley, and I would definitely recommend checking it out.

I am a longtime Amazon Prime customer who enjoys writing reviews in my free time. If you have any questions or comments about this product or my review, feel free to message me and I'll be glad to help!

poor quality discs
Verified purchase
Poor quality disc media. Its been a few years since i bought all 4 of the season box sets. About 1/4 of the episodes wont play on any of my players. Guess i was under the impression that these would last for decades. No scratches or visible damage to discs. I only played them a few times.

My favorite Superman
Verified purchase
My favorite superman series. This series had humor to it that you usually do not see in superman. The actor playing Perry White was great and his interplay with Clark, Lois and Jimmy often made me laugh. The actors playing Clark Kent's parents were extremely talented as well and this series gave you a chance to see their relationship in a way not seen in any other superman show. I loved Lex and felt the writers allowed him to be more than just a bad guy. You see him as a rich guy who was use to being top dog in town until Superman arrives to steal his thunder as well as the girl (Lois) he wants. 20 years later I am still sad it was canceled but glad Amazon has released an affordable version for fans to own.

Superman modernized!
Verified purchase
To date, there have been four live action Superman series. "The Adventures of Superman" from the 50s with George Reeves, "Superboy", produced by the Salkind brothers and inspired by the success of the Christopher Reeve Superman films from the 80s, "Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman" from the 90s, and "Smallville" from decade 2000. Of these four, "Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman", had the psychologically deepest, most relatable, modern, and eccentric interpretations of the classic Superman characters (Clark Kent, Lois Lane, and Lex Luthor) seen on the small screen. Each is immature and neurotic in their own unique way. Lois, is a neurotic, romantically repressed, feminist snob living out the modern woman's dream; Clark Kent is a developmentally stunted mama's boy, living out his inner kid as Superman; Luthor is a pleasure seeking, manipulative, utilitarian, megalomaniac whose ego knows no boundaries. Each live action Superman series had its characteristic strengths and weaknesses. For "Lois and Clark", I'd say the strengths were the characters and the humor of the character interactions. "Lois and Clark", didn't feel like a traditional Superman series with stock bad guys, and Lois or Jimmy getting into trouble every episode, and needing Superman to bail them out like a good insurance policy. "Lois and Clark" plays out more like an episode of "Moonlighting", or "The X-files".

Lois & Clark: Metropolis And ABC's Dynamic Duo!
Verified purchase
Tune in at ground zero for one of television's greatest TV romances with Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman - The Complete First Season! Developed by Deborah Joy LeVine ("Dawson's Creek") and a brilliant staff of series writers including Thania St. John ("Roswell"), Lois & Clark takes the Man of Steel on his most exciting and challenging adventure of all - rivalry & romance (and later marriage) with Lois Lane!

Lois & Clark was easily one of my must-see, must-tape-commercial-free shows back during its first-run on ABC. Updated with a 90s sensibility, Lois & Clark brilliantly re-examined Superman through his relationship with Lois Lane, which evolved naturally during the course of the show's 4-year series run. The writing, performances, action and effects were always consistently effective. However, the main reason I faithfully tuned in to the show was for the interplay between Lois & Clark. The idea of Superman struggling thru relationship issues, like any other guy, while still doing the "superhero thing" was very appealing. Just look at the Spider-Man films for clear proof. No matter how weak some of the villains may have been regarded, the writers gave them just enough "menace" to justify Lois & Clark's investigative attention as the reporters sorted thru their personal stuff while in the process of "getting the story." Their chemistry & banter, like that of David Addison & Maddie Hayes in "Moonlighting" (another ABC hit and also available on DVD), are what viewers fondly remember most about the show.

Teri Hatcher ("Desperate Housewives") & Dean Cain ("Ripley's Believe It, Or Not!") star as the unbelievably "real" title characters. They not only look great as Lois & Clark, they simply are great. Dean Cain pulls off a decent Superman with easily the best build of his predecessors and an even cooler Clark Kent, who sports great suits and designer eye-frames, making him more appealing to women. Teri Hatcher, who recently won a Golden Globe for Best Actress in Desperate Housewives, clearly should've received an Emmy for her performance in Lois & Clark. Hatcher really BECOMES Lois Lane in this show - encompassing her beauty, intelligence, independence, tenacity and heart with incredible talent. Though, some viewers & critics did initially mock the sound of her voice and her progressive thinness as the show went on. However, Hatcher's beauty and sex appeal were never questioned as TV Guide once proclaimed her as "The Sexiest Woman in Cyberspace" (most downloaded), dethroning then-reigning queen Cindy Margolis.

I'd be remiss to not mention John Shea ("Mutant X") as the charasmatic yet deadly Lex Luthor. His exceptional performance rates up there with Murder One's Richard Cross and Alias' Arvin Sloane as standout TV baddie. The rest of the supporting cast are a delight as well including Lane Smith ("V") as Elvis-lovin' Daily Planet editor-in-chief Perry White; Michael Landes & Tracy Scoggins as photographer Jimmy Olsen & columnist Cat Grant, respectively - both only appearing in this season one set; and of course Eddie Jones & K Callan as Jonathan & Martha Kent. I loved those cute scenes like where they first meet Lois: Martha leads Lois out of the room to freshen up, looks back at Clark and Jonathan and silently mouths to Clark "I love her!" to which Clark dismisses her with a playful "get outta here" wave. I also liked how the writers addressed common Superman issues such as "the glasses" in the pilot where Clark (wearing the final suit) is checking himself in a mirror when Martha, looking on, quips "Well one thing's for sure, no one's going to be looking at your face." An embarrassed Clark snaps "Mom!" Martha retorts "Well, they don't call them 'tights' for nothing." Great stuff.

Lois & Clark - The Complete First Season is a 1034 min. 6-disc set, which features all 21 episodes in full frame (1.33:1) picture, and stereo sound. The super extras include: "From Rivals to Romance" series retrospective, visual effects featurette, Dean Cain Pilot commentary, original pilot presentation and one bonus DVD containing "Crusade," the season 4 premiere of Smallville, the other popular Superman-related show, which no doubt influenced the release of this Lois & Clark DVD. So don't "skip Smallville and fly to Lois & Clark" as another reviewer advised, but instead add it to your Superman collection along with Smallville. Treat yourself to one of the most anticipated TV DVD releases this side of "Roswell!"

Highly Recommended!

Long Time Coming

The Superman I grew up with was George Reeves in the show that ran from 1952-1957. Reeves' acting was rather wooden, his Superman was grim and one-dimensional, and with each show being only a half-hour, there wasn't much time for plot development.

From there I read the comic books and even though their Superman had more of a personality than Reeves, he was still just this cardboard cutout. I thought the movies were ok, but they were still focused on Superman, rather than the person where he spent most of his time.

"Lois and Clark" is IMO the best Superman yet. Dean Cain and Terry hatcher had an excellent chemistry, and the focus was on Clark rather than Superman. One memorable line is when Clark tells Lois, "Clark is who I am. Superman is what I can do."

I think the show jumped the shark when Clark and Lois got married, perhaps even when they became "an item." Some of the tension that made up their relationship - the ironic love triangle between Ckark, Lois, and Superman - was lost when Lois finds out Clark's identity, but the show was still way ahead of any other treatments of Superman that have yet to be offered.

Like many other fans, I have been waiting for the series to come out on DVD for years. I hope they don't take as long for subsequent seasons.
