The romance is building and the suspense increasing as Lois and Clark take to the screen for the third series out of four. The end of series two has the couple firmly in love, but scared of taking those next few steps after Lois discovers a certain secret her man of steel has been hiding. If we thought the proposal at the end of series two was setting them up for the wedding of a lifetime and happy ever afters, we were mistaken. Instead, series three looks even deeper into the relationship between the two. Not only does Lois initially turn down Clarks proposal, the pair have to really fight to keep even their friendship surviving as they struggle to come to terms with their personal feelings towards each other. The love is undeniable
but do they actually like each other right now? As people from their pasts including an old friend of Lois whose feelings for the reporter go further than friendship and into the realm of stalking try and come between them, can Lois and Clark finally start to be together? What should have been the wedding of a lifetime turns into a complete disaster, rumours of illegitimate children and visitors from another planet means the end of series three still hasnt resulted in the wedding we have all been waiting for. Instead, the climax is emotional and somewhat heart breaking for our two reporters indicating that, perhaps unlike the earlier series, series four had been commissioned, potentially even with filming starting due to the cliff hanger nature of this climax. The change in their relationship allows the plots to still be moving forward without growing stale. There does, however, does seem to be the feeling that perhaps ideas were beginning to run thin towards halfway through the series. The episodes are still good and just as gripping as ever, but the plots become more and more far-fetched as we are introduced to concepts such as cloning and the idea that Clark was not the only one to survive Krypton. Unlike previous series, there is also a lot tighter underlying plot line in this series. Not only through their developing relationship, but because there are several episodes that all lead on from each other in a story arc. While this does make it more believable breaking away from the annoyance of having something major happen one week and then everyone forgetting it by the next it does mean that some of the episodes seem to drag a little. Despite that, however, I still find myself as gripped as normal and wanting to watch the next episode almost before I have finished the one Im watching. There might not quite be such the same excitement as the earlier series (maybe a result of watching them back to back and therefore just beginning to have had enough), but there is still something engaging and charming about the series. The characters develop and become even more loveable as time progresses, and you just know that you are going to be getting hold of series four as soon as possible.
