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.

Partly due to the nominations, and partly due to Clark needing to step out and put on his tights, the Daily Planet’s top duo work separately for about half the episode. Each targets a likely suspect in the crimes, but the truth is both are involved as the experimental rocker (Michael Des Barres) hijacks the scientific breakthroughs of an old friend (Scott Colomby) in order to create the wall of sound and hold the city for ransom. Superman is of course able to swoop in at the last moment, breaching the villain’s last line of defense by breaking the sound barrier, and allowing Lois and Clark to attend the awards dinner in a not-quite-real date foreshadowing the romance to come.
