"Reeves's Superman...is a complex, conflicted figure, at least as conflicted about his superstatus as any of the explicitly neurotic Marvel superheroes who came along in the 1960's..."
Description by OLDIES.com:
George Reeves convincingly played Superman throughout the first season of the show, and he returned to play the Man of Steel in all of the subsequent Seasons. Although it soon turned into a laugh-fest, this first series of adventures takes a serious approach to the characters, mirroring later interpretations such as LOIS & CLARK from the 1990s. Hugely popular in its day, this complete collection of episodes from the first season of THE ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN affords viewers the chance to wallow in some awesome retro TV action.
Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 189 ratings.
It was a real pleasure to watch one of my favorite
TV shows again that I really enjoyed as a young boy. Great memories, even though you know he really didn't fly - what a hero for all mankind. I actually got to see George Reeves in person as a boy, he made a guest appearance of course as SUPERMAN at a function in Hartford, CT. What a neat and humble man.
Put together well.I loved the more serious approach of direction the first year took. Can't wait for the remaining years to come out!
