Lois & Clark - The Source

Throwback Tuesday takes us back to Metropolis for another episode of Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman. Journalism, more than spandex-clad heroics, is the driving force behind “The Source.” Exposing the corruption of a local tech company knowingly shipping out faulty switches backfires for Lois (Teri Hatcher) when the company pressures her source (Peter Scolari) into retracting his statement and then attempts to silence him for good. Facing lawsuits and pressure from The Daily Planet’s board of directors, Perry (Lane Smith) has no choice but to suspend Lois when her whistleblower appears to have been killed, taking any possible evidence to his grave. Scolari is fun as the neurotic Stuart, who manages to have a couple of tricks up his sleeve (such as the safety inspector covertly passing a note to the reporter).

Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman - Wall of Sound television review

Throwback Tuesday takes us back to Metropolis for another episode of Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman. While smarting that Clark (Dean Cain) was nominated for a Kerth Award and she wasn’t (for the first time in her career), Lois (Teri Hatcher) and Clark investigate a new series of crimes by a criminal who uses sound waves to commit his crimes. Whether putting the populace to sleep or threatening to bring down a building, Metropolis soon finds itself at the mercy of a new threat. The episode is notable for Lois going undercover as a rock ‘n roll groupie and the show introducing a technology that could even bring the Man of Steel to his knees.

Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman - Madame Ex TV review

With both its stars now appearing in different roles in Supergirl it seems like a good time to turn our attention back to Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman for Throwback Thursday. The show’s Second Season premiere, “Madame Ex,” introduces Emma Samms as Arianna Carlin, The Daily Planet’s new syndicated psychologist who is actually the recently-deceased Lex Luthor‘s (John Shea) ex-wife who has big plans of revenge for Lex’s death. One of Arianna’s plans involves subliminal messages to turn the populace of Metropolis against their hero. Wanting something far more personal for Lois (Teri Hatcher), Arianna uses a double of the reporter to help ruin the Man of Steel’s good name while also making the reporter’s friends and family begin to question her state of mind. As for Superman, she has a Kryptonite bullet surprise in store for him.

Lois & Clark - The House of Luthor

Our look back at the Superman‘s more memorable moments on both the big and small screen continues. The two-part finale of the First Season finale of Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman may begin with a marriage proposal for Lois Lane (Teri Hatcher) by the season’s dominant villain Lex Luthor (John Shea), but it ends with the show closing the door on the Lex-centric storylines that dominated the show’s opening season and begin branching out when Lois & Clark returned for Season Two.

Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman - Fly Hard

Our look back at the Superman‘s more memorable moments on both the big and small screen continues with “Fly Hard.” The final Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman episode before the First Season’s two-part finale, “Fly Hard” offered the opportunity for all of the show’s regular cast to play multiple roles when the Daily Planet staff, along with Lex Luthor (John Shea), are taken hostage by a group of armed robbers (led by Star Trek: Voyager‘s Robert Beltran) searching for the legendary safe of former mob boss Dragon Eddie (Shea).
