A Quick Tip by woopak_the_thrill

  • May 13, 2011
Starts quite well and really picks up especially in season 3-5. One good thing it does extremely well is the portrayal of Clark's parents and of Lex Luthor. I've never seen Luthor this dark, briliant, methodical and calculating in any of the Superman movies. However, after the departure of Rosenbaum (and the departure of the Luthor character), the series slowly took a nosedive. It succumbs to the mechanics of comic adaptations, tonal shifts and disjointed plotting. The script had also become horrendous with Clark becoming The Blur, Lana getting powers and tries too much to get into the Superman mythos just for the sake of going into them. After season 6, the script becomes a convoluted mess and executed with bad writing.

This is a perfect example how Lex Luthor (but we all know that) is just a more interesting character than Superman....Hey, at least the episodes with Maxima and Supergirl were fun. The ones with the JSA, Aquaman and the Legion were so cheesy that not even pizza hut's stuffed crust cheese pizza can match it. I almost became lactose intolerant. [3 out of 5 Stars]
