Throwback Thursday- Television Edition-Lois & Clark (The New Adventures Of Superman)- (1993 to 1997)

Superman has been around since 1933.  Since the advent of television in the late 1940’s, he has been brought to the small screen several times.

In 1990’s, a different twist was put on the Superman myth. Lois and Clark (The New Adventures Of Superman) (1993-1997) focused not just on the big city life of Superman/Clark Kent. The writers of the show decided to put a rom-com, Moonlighting spin on the classic superhero fable by also putting the spotlight on Lois Lane.

In this series, the man who took off the tights and/or put on the glasses was Dean Cain. The woman behind the computer and the snazzy headlines was Teri Hatcher. Over four years, the will they/ won’t they, colleagues but could be more relationship kept viewers coming back week after week.

In terms of the myth of Superman, this show took the story in a whole new direction, which was nice change from the previous incarnations of Superman.

I recommend it.
