Building on the Superman myth, this television series from the 1990s centers on the young adult life of Clark Kent (Dean Cain) in the modern-day city of Metropolis. While struggling to balance his Superman duties with his job working for the Daily Planet, Kent meets and falls in love with fellow reporter Lois Lane. When news breaks of Superman's existence, however, Lane becomes smitten with the elusive superhero and unaware that Kent and Superman are the same person, wards off Kent's romantic advances. Driven by this odd romantic triangle of sorts, the show's first season also focuses on life around the Daily Planet office, and Superman's battles with a whole host of villains, making it part-romance, part-action/adventure. Contains all 22 one-hour episodes of Season One.
"ABC's fantasy-dramedy captured Lois' side of the classic comic-book tale, thanks the quirky ingenue's scene stealing ability to display steely strength one minute, snappy comic timing the next, and gooey romanticism after that..." - 06/10/2005 Entertainment Weekly, p.87
