    I thought the Cain/Hatcher show was called 'Lois and Clark.' Was the 'New Adentures of Superman' bit not added by the BBC for the benefit of slow viewers?

    The original show wasn't going to feature Superman at all, as I recall.

    As I recall, it always had the subtitle in the US. You can see the title card on the wiki page sporting the subtitle, and there's discussion in the intro about how it was renamed for the UK broadcast.

    ^I stand corrected then. I thought I remembered reading at the time about it being retitled for the UK market.

    I'm wondering if one could recomposite the greenscreen Superman scenes of the Lois & Clark show to look more convincing. I think the biggest problem is that the motions of Superman and the background are not matching. That practical hero shot of him carrying Lois into the Daily Planet (at the end of the opening titles) has always been my favorite. It's a shame the greenscreen shots never lived up to that.

    David may not have been the Hulk for much of the episode, but his appearances as the Hulk were reliable. Back during the original broadcasts, you could set your watch by his transformations, save for an odd episode or two that messed with the formula a bit.

    Lois & Clark had a great first year and then went downhill fast - a change in tone, the recasting, shuffling around of producers. Really was a disappointment.

    The problem wasn't just with the greenscreen. It was the fact Cain always looked so damn awkward in the harness, and never really knew how to strike a good flying pose.

    The flying in the earlier Superboy series was frankly much more convincing.

    That is one thing I have to give credit to Smallville. They did an amazing job with Clark's flying scenes. The turbulence effect was fantastic.

    He only flew in one scene and that in the finale and there was no turbulence.

    I'm pretty sure we saw him flying in at least one or two episodes before the finale. He just was being controled or possessed or something.
    I have a confession, I've seen anything of Lois & Clark. When it came out I was a kid and didn't care about superheroes yet.

    I liked some of the super jump scenes. He did try to fly with Kara's guidance and he flew with Lois in that Matrix thing.

    And you'd be painfully wrong by stating that. He's flown a few times for one reason or another.

    For example, this time. Which really exemplifies the turbulence effect I was talking about.

    I like the idea of that effect, but I think it was way overdone there, and almost makes it seem like there's some kind of mystical or magical energy making him fly.

    I prefer the more subtle version of the effect we saw in MOS myself, where it looked much more like some kind of natural energy field that his body was emitting.

    Yeah if there's any Superman villain I find more boring than Darkseid, it's freakin Doomsday. Ugh.

    What? You don't like a mindless creature who just stands there throwing punches? Whose sole creative purpose was to get into a slug fest and beat someone to death? It's riveting.
