Not quite so Super as the first two.
on 24 March 2007
So Lois Lane has finally discovered the truth (at long last!!!!) Clark Kent and Superman are the self-same person. So does this mean an end to the will-they-wont-they, do-they-don't-they chapters of their love life? Forget it! Because while Lois does initially take some time to come to terms with Clarks dual identity, their romance is still as fragile as it was in the first two series. I lost count of the times they broke up and got back together. I know this is supposed to add tention but in reality it just made me want to scream at the TV!
And while all-in-all the series is very good, too many episodes are just too far fetched. I know this is a super-surreal series where anything can happen but some of these episodes stretched my suspension of disbelif to breaking point. A few examples: Lex Luthor is back from dead minus his hair and looking to rekindle his relationship with Lois at whatever cost. Not only does he go as far as to kidnap her on her wedding day and swap her with a frog-munching clone but then the real Lois also loses her mind for 5 episodes, falls in love with her doctor and can't remember anything about Clark or Superman. This is VERY frustrating as it took her so bloody long to figure it out in the first place and it feels like we are back to square one of the story! Also, although Krypton supposidly died, with Clark being its last infant, some Kryptonians turn up at the end of the series and beg him to take on Lord Nor their evil tyrannical ruler, and while these episodes are good and entertaining I think it meddles just a bit too much and goes a bit too far away from his orgins as a comic book hero. These are just minor niggles but I still think this series pushed the suspension boundries to breaking point, and messed around far too much with their relationship. For heavens sake, we've been waiting for 2 whole series, willing them to get together - and them 'bam' its all over again before you can even draw breath. For someone who loved the romantic suspension element of the first two series, I actually started to think that in the end I didn't care whether they stayed together or split up. However, towards the end of the series things picked up and the series had a few more 'super' episodes. If you are collecting the series, like me, then do perchase this series, but some episodes may dissapoint. Worth a watch at any rate.
