It is a problematic pilot though, since he doesn't really do Superman-y things until part three.
Well, duh. It's a pilot. It's the origin story for that version of the character. Christopher already mentioned STM. I add the suggestion to rewatch the pilot of "Lois & Clark" and see how much time he spends in that one doing Superman-y things.
What I actually consider a weak spot in "Last Son of Krypton" is how we never actually learn how and why Clark Kent decides to help people, and why he dons a costume to do it.
