used to watch it when I was a kid xD it was my favorite part of the day, for sure.

I miss this show. And I really wish they had finished it off well - not with a cliffhanger. Dean Cain and Teri Hatcher were Perfect casting choices. Dean was a great Clark Kent and a very enjoyable Superman. Teri was ballsy, beautiful and bewitching. The first series is a little formulaic. Once the romantic side of the show really kicks in, ai thought it was class-leading. The most enjoyable iteration of Superman we've ever had. This level of humour, fun and class hasn't been reached by any of the modern superhero films or shows. The closest is The Flash but even that has some distance to travel to match the greatness of L&C... 8/10 overall.

Ah nostalgia. Going to watch again.

Used to watch this and love as a kid. Did the full rewatch and used it for workouts watching. So many memories, so enjoyable.

A little about me πŸ‘‹ I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter πŸ™ˆ

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.
