Ahead of Its Time?
22 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There is an episode of it on YouTube.

What is weird about this show, even though it didn't even last a season, it went into syndication in the early sixties.

That is where I saw it and according to Wikipedia was one of the first American shows broadcast daily in the UK.

I thought it was great when I was a kid and the episode on YouTube is very funny.

What a great premise, a nerd superman and just perfect for Wally Cox who plays him perfectly.

Why it didn't catch on is a mystery to me.
