It's About Time !!!!By Piperf (2 reviews) from Crewe , 26 Nov 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]I have waited so long for this series to come to DVD !!! I used to watch this evry saturday evening. At the time i thought it was ace. Dean Cain was maybe a little too obvious for the Superman role. A bit too muscle man but did well none the less but, it was Teri Hatcher who really impressed, Her Lois Lane is what Lois was all about. She was vulnerable but kicked ass !!! She was good with the butt kicking !!! Some of the stories were a bit lame but the cast saved it. Roll on the rest of the series. Can;t wait for the Ultra Woman episodes.

Trip down memory lane.By Loopsta (5 reviews) , 26 Feb 2013Gracing our screens in the early 90s, Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman provides yet another twist on the story behind the Man of Steel. Rather than it just being one story arc of how he comes to Metropolis, meets both the love of his life and his worst enemy, this television series instead develops it further than that. Teri Hatcher and Dean Cain star as Lois and Clark: the high-flying investigative reporter and the farm boy. Most know how the story goes, but this Lois Lane is not one to be swept off her feet. At least, not by her new partner. When a certain man in a cape turns up, however, the somewhat detached reporter finds herself head over heels. The show follows the pair as they work through an original sense of hostility on Lois part, to realising that they are friends, then partners and then best friends. But can Lois and Clark ever be anything more? With her sights firmly set on the Man of Steel, and his arch nemesis, Lex Luthor (John Shea) making moves on Miss Lane herself, it seems that a happy ending for Clark is not on the cards. With incredible supporting actors, watching this today hadnt lessened any of the charm of the show. Of course, you had to look past the 90s fashion sense, not to mention the technology. But there is something almost endearing about the show, something that reminds you that it doesnt matter when it was made, you find yourself routing for the hero both Clark and Superman as both parts of his identity struggle to find their place in this new and exciting world. Battling not only villains and criminals, Clark must also battle his heart as he realises that he has fallen for his best friend, despite her warnings to not do so. But just because he is untouchable to most men doesnt mean that he is invulnerable. As Clark realises that there is more to his past than he had initially realises, he also comes to terms with the fact that Lex Luthor is not the do-gooder that everyone seems to believe he is. Determined to put him in his place if not behind bars completely, Superman makes sure that the billionaire knows that he isnt the one at the highest point of the city any more, delivering one simple line that undermines everything that Luthor has been striving to achieve. Just look up. The audience find themselves peering to the skies for the man of steel as he swoops in to save the day on more occasion than once. Whether they ever planned to do more series is not apparent, but they certainly left it open for it by the romance between Lois and Clark just beginning to blossom rather than it just being Superman who has stolen her affections. Three more series thankfully follow, leading to more new adventures for not only Superman, but the dynamic reporting duo as well. Definitely falling under the category of a family show, this series has the same charm as Clark Kent. In other words, it almost oozes it.
Lois and Clark - Series 1 Disk OneBy DPBalding (3 reviews) from Harlow , 01 Aug 2009
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideClark Kent, a man from Smallville, has a big secret: He can fly, he is super fast, and can not be harmed. He is...SUPERMAN!
The first two episodes show Clark's arrival in Metropolis, where he tries to get a job at the Daily Planet. However, Perry White, the Editor, is not impressed with Clark's resume, and gently turns him down. Not to be beaten, Clark writes a piece about an old theater which promptly makes Perry White hire him, tell Clark that he values initiative. Clark is then teamed up with top reporter Lois Lane, and an unforgettable partnership is born.
Clark must come to terms with the fact that he can't use his powers without running the risk of being discovered, until he decides to make a costume, which include the letter S on it. He is then given the name Superman, and he goes on to save an important mission in space.
In Episode 3, rogue government agents want to find Superman, and threaten Lois and Clark. Undeterred, the two of them track down a hanger with alien artifacts, and Clark learns more about himself, and his origins. However, before the police arrive, everything is taken, and Clark realizes that he has lost the best chance of finding out about his people, and himself.
The start of a great series, and one that will live on for years to come. Dean Cain might appear to be over the top at first as Clark Kent, but he settles into the role nicely. Teri Hatcher is an excellent choice for Lois Lane.
The only downside is that in this series, Clark's father is indeed alive, which goes against all previous series. But perhaps that is where it succeeds, because it's willing to break the rules. How many more rules will be broken? We'll see.
Oh, and keep an eye out for Lex Luthor with hair.

remind me of the early daysBy a customer from England , 15 Jan 2007I watched it when it was on. The stories are actually not that sophisticated (although it got more and more exciting and gripping over time) and are probably for the younger audience. Nevertheless, I still enjoy the DVDs now cos they are light and easy to watch and the stories/endings usually make you feel good. Perfect when I want to have a relaxing and lazy weekend. The acting is actually very good from both lead actors, considering the type of stories and the target group of audience. The interactions between the Chief and his staff are just hilarious sometimes.
A Super new take on the man of steelBy MHP7VoDVGH (94 reviews) from Surrey, England , 21 Dec 2006This is a fantastic comdey series about a modern Lois Lane and Clark Kent and his alter ego Superman. The cast are fantastic, the stories are fantastic and I liked the special features but it would of been nice to hear Teri Thatcher (Lois Lane)'s commentary too. Definitely for new and old Supermna fans alike!
