Adventures of Superman in Color

by Dan Shay on 9/19/2006

The color programs are excellent! It is too bad that there were only 13 episodes shot per season in color. The transfer to DVD was done very well. Although the soundtrack was done in Dolby Digital, it would have been nice for them to have been done using the front two channels instead of just the center channel alone. Although we finally get to see Clark Kent driving the 1953 Nash-Healey in a couple of episodes, which was loaned to the studio by Dick Powell and is still in existence today, it is clear that the Nashes are pretty much gone and replaced by Chrysler Corporation cars. It is finally good to see new backgrounds, scenery and locations used which differ from the black & white shows which repetitiously used the same locations over and over again! If I saw that cave location one more time in the b&w shows, I would have had to do something drastic! Anyway, this is a great set and I can hardly wait to get the season 5 & 6 set! Read More

Editors Note
Note Containing one of the most instantly recognizable intro sequences to a TV show ("Look up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's Superman!"), THE ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN was the first attempt to bring the comic book character to television screens. This first season originally aired in 1952, and established great cinematic characters such as Lois Lane, Jimmy Olsen, and of course Clark Kent himself. By day Kent attempts to live an anonymous existence as a reporter for the Daily Planet, but when trouble comes calling, he transforms into Superman, the last survivor from the planet Krypton. This release includes every episode from the third and fourth seasons of the show.

Review This is TV in its infancy but even with all the simplicity that we associate with lesser production features, this still carries its boyhood charm well...We bond with the one-dimensional characters over multiple episodes with the good natured Jimmy Olson, cantankerous editor Perry White, career-oriented Lois Lane and sharp but prudent Clark. It is funny how addictive these shows are and how quickly a whole disc of them seems to fly by during viewing. Of course only a child could forgive the obliviousness of everyone in regards to Superman and Kent's likeness...aaahhhhh TV of the 50's - pure, gentle and lovable.

Quotes
James Gray, DVD Times ...this is a show very much of its time but which still has appeal today...
Mac McEntire, DVD Verdict ...the entire series gives off as much a "gangster movie" vibe as a comic book one.
