I actually watched some episodes of Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, and noticed the flying sequences even in this series surpassed that of Superman Returns.
Just when you think you've heard it all...
I knocked this show too, but out of boredom I rented a copy of season one and found out it wasn't all that bad. Not as good as Smallville or the movies, but it was still entertaining.
What I meant about the flying was the show had more close-ups of Cain flying like the Christopher Reeve films. If that was possible to do in those days, why did the flying sequences in SR look cheesy?
