Building on the Superman myth, this television series from the 90s centers on the young-adult life of Clark Kent (Dean Cain) in the modern-day city of Metropolis. While struggling to balance his Superman duties with his job working for the Daily Planet, Kent meets and falls in love with fellow reporter Lois Lane.

Driven by this odd romantic triangle of sorts, the show also focuses on life around the Daily Planet office, and Superman’s battles with a whole host of villains, making it part-romance, part-action/adventure.

Positives

DVD

  • All the 4 DVD “cases”  (and DVD boxes) and the DVD Discs have great designs on them and the designs inside the cases look good.
  • And the DVD menu is very easy to navigate.

Video & Audio

  • The episodes play back to back. You will be tempted to see all episodes in a row which is great (at least for me. I don’t know about you but I don’t like it when you have to play episodes one by one).
  • The Video quality looks good and the audio sounds great.

Negatives

Box & storage

  • The DVD case is made of carton with the plastic thing carrying the DVD. Its stacking 6 dvd’s on top of each other (2 on each side) and closes like a folder (of sorts). Which means scratching of the disks if you are not careful.

DVD

  • Only available in standard DVD format: not available in Blu-ray or any other formats.

Video & Audio

  • The full frame of all DVDs is 1:33.1 which is supposed to be traditional television & computer monitor standard but on my flat screen (which has a 1:85.1 full frame) I don’t see it full screen. This seems to be the issue with most shows from the 90s.

Personal experience

 

I would be lying if I say that I have not seen this show multiple times.

Before I got the DVD set I used to look for any available video on You Tube. I have it for 4 years already and it has been used a lot.

The special features are my gems. For fans of the show know that you will not be disappointed with the extras.

As mentioned before one issue that I have is that a few DVDs are scratched because they don’t always stay put in the case. 

I also had to look out for where I store the boxes.

As I mentioned the 4 DVD cases close like a folder and you store them in the DVD box. Note that this folder does not close like a proper classic DVD plastic case so you will have to be aware where you leave them because dust could damage the discs.

Final Overview

Overall Rating

The cases look good but I would have liked them to be of plastic or a more durable material. Box & Storage final rating: 75%.

The DVD cases and the DVDs have great designs on them and I appreciated the investment in the design but I just wish it to be available in more formats. DVD final rating: 85%.

The video and audio productions are good but I wish I could see it full screen. Video & Audio final rating: 95%.

The final overall rating for this product is 85%. 

Recommendation

I will  recommend this DVD set even though it has a few set backs, it still worth it, especially the bonus features.  Each season in this particular set can also be bought separately. You can find the DVD cover pictures in the article I wrote about Lois & Clark.

If you want to buy this set (maybe as a treat for yourself or as a gift for your kids), here is one recommended seller from ebay where you can buy a Brand New DVD set:

  • Best Seller: usa-deals-are-us on ebay (Ranked Top Rated Plus seller) with 99.9% positive feedback from customers.
  • Returns: 30 days Money back Return Policy
  • Guarantees: ebay Money Back Guarantee

  1. I watched all of the seasons of Smallville, but not any of the Lois and Clark, shows. I am so interested. Thanks for all this wonderful info.

  2. Oh, what fun! These take me back. 🙂

    Your pro/con lists are really helpful, and I like the percentage grading system, too. I’ll be back for more reviews.

  3. Thanks for this review! It’s a great reminder of why people still buy DVDs when we have all these streaming services available now -the quality on DVDs is always going to be better (both visual and audial) and also, for people who want to nerd out fully, the extras/commentary/directors cuts only come with the dvds. Thanks for this great review for all the Superman fans out there!

    1. Hi Penny,
      Thanks for your comments. And yes, you are right. In this case there is a difference between the songs used syndicated version that’s available on the streaming services/cable and the DVD version. The DVD version has the original songs. I think they change it in the syndicated version for promotional reasons but if you know the series well you will find it odd. On Youtube you will see a few examples of this.

  4. Oh the good old days! Brings back a lot of memories . I don’t think I managed to see the complete series, so the dvd is a good option. Thanks for sharing!
