The year was 1993– America was ready for a new breed of superhero: one with more “will they/won’t they” sexual tension, and who prefers whimsical banter to big action scenes. Enter Teri Hatcher and Dean Cain as Lois and Clark, respectively, in Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, ABC’s prime-time superhero soap. Initially a ratings hit, audience disinterest proved to be the show’s Kryptonite, and it was unceremoniously canceled after only four seasons. Now 20 years later, we pay a visit to the Metropolis of our youth– does Lois and Clark hold up? Is Lois Lane the most galactically stupid woman in history? Why does Lex Luthor look like Bill Nye the Science Guy? We answer these questions and more!
Also, we’re going to start incorporating music into the podcast, this week’s featured artist is Carnival Moon.
