The TV version was cut down, very camp, and based on the original book from the '60s version of the musical.
The local CBS affiliate news here in the DC area used the overture from the musical as their theme for...decades, it seemed like.
Yah. I can't believe they didn't have LEX in the original book... crazy.
Roberto did a good job of creating a new book. Lots of little nuggets here and there. A shout out to Billy Batson at one point. (If that stayed in...)
What I saw what as full reading of the book with music.
