I think it’s alright. It’s not a show I sit and wait for, but I generally watch the episode within three weeks.

Some things they do well. I think he is a great Superman. They nailed the setting I think.

I feel that maybe Lois could have more impact with her journalism work. It doesn’t really feel like anyone is reading her articles.

I also feel like they aren’t getting maximum emotional value from the Kal/Kryptonian/Mother/Brother relationships. Much like Kara’s relationship with her father in the last season of SG, it seems like it holds too little weight.

Compare that to the relationship Kara had with Astra in the first season which was really well done.

Maybe it’s a budget thing. CBS might have had the resources to work on getting those things right and CW are under a tighter schedule to push episodes cheaper and faster. But it also feels like emotional weight should be cheaper than effects.

So far, I think it is much better than Smallville. But, that’s not a high bar to clear.

Something nice to say…

John Glover should have won an Emmy for his portrayal of Lionel Luthor.

I’m a huge fan of both shows.

Between the two, I prefer Smallville. Its as good of a coming of age tale for Clark, as Superman & Lois is a later in his life tale for him and his family.

Stabbed me right in the heart :sob: I LOVE Smallville! Maybe the whole Lana thing was drawn out a bit but they did a lot of things right imo. Also, the never ending suspense made me watch episode after episode after episode… more like season after season cause I binged it all in like a very short period of time :sweat_smile:

Of course, to each their own!

Co-signing @MatthewHecht’s take here. Superman And Lois is a fun CW series and is cartainly an engaging hour of streaming, but it doesn’t surpass this amazingness-

I posted something nice about John Glover above. :grin:

I gave it four seasons. Then I just jumped in when a good guest star showed up like the JSA.

The show did indeed make solid use of the DCEU. :+1:
