Lois! Go away! Superman! A wimp!,
This review is from: The New Adventures Of Superman: Volume 9 [VHS] (VHS Tape)
This whole series would be a lot better, in fact would be watchable, if it wasn't for Terri Hatcher's performance as Lois Lane. She just hasn't got the class, style, and panache to pull it off. The original creators of Superman obviously had someone like Lauren Bacall or Katherine Hepburn in mind. In Terri Hatcher's performance, Lois becomes a pushy career woman without any charm whatsoever. In the comics and the other TV series, including the excellent cartoon series in the 60s, Lane was a minor character. It was Superman's show. He was the one with the superpowers doing battle with super villians. Here, he is an utter wimp? Superman seems unable to do anything without asking Lois.
Lois has too much screen time.She interfers in everything. Take her out, and each episode would make for a thoroughly entertaining half an hour. I can't wait for the director's cut for the whole series.
