It is a problematic pilot though, since he doesn't really do Superman-y things until part three.
Well, you could say much the same about Superman: The Movie
. A great deal of the movie is spent on Krypton, in Smallville, in the Fortress, and at the Daily Planet
before the first real superhero action comes along. "Last Son of Krypton" was adopting a similar structure, and I liked it that it went into so much depth about the origin story. It was cool seeing a whole episode of Jor-El, Action Scientist.
