Why Lois and Clark is the Greatest Superman Story of All Time

Every Saturday night at fifteen minutes past six, I rushed into the living room and sat, legs crossed, eyes fixed on the television. Like so many before me, I was captivated by the most iconic of superheroes—the Man of Steel, Superman. But the show that held me spellbound wasn’t primarily about speeding faster than a speeding bullet, being more powerful than a locomotive, or leaping tall buildings in a single bound. It was Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, and it explored the relationship of Kal-El and Lois Lane in a way that had never been seen before.
