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.
