If You Want to Know About My Undergrad Life...
Watch this show.
The first season of Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman comes to DVD June 7. While much of the Class of '96 watched the advent of Mulder and Scully, I watched an adult Clark Kent who wasn't a nerd.
On the contrary, Clark was portrayed by Princeton football hero and would-be Buffalo Bill Dean Cain, and paired with a Lois given Teri Hatcher's incomparable mix of sweetness and sensuality. At the time, it was Hatcher's biggest success since MacGyver. Who knew another Sunday series lay ahead?
Indeed, Lois & Clark's first season is my favorite because it shows the characters at their quintessential best, from a street-smart Jimmy Olsen (Michael Landes), to a seductively evil Lex Luthor (John Shea), to the still active and caring Kent folks (K Callan and Eddie Jones).
