Lois Lane: So basically what you're saying is, all my life I've attracted men that are controlling, incomplete, or downright liars because... because...
Dr. Friskin: Keep going.
Lois Lane: Because that's how I want to be treated? But if I want that kind of man, and I get that kind of man, why am I not happy?
Dr. Friskin: You like chocolate, right?
Lois Lane: How come everybody knows that?
Dr. Friskin: But you know it's not good for you, and the older and wiser we get, the less tolerance we have for something that's not good for us. You're not a victim, Lois, so ...

A different look at an American hero (Superman). A must watch due to one of the most beautiful women in the world Teri Hatcher.
8 December 2000 | by (Oakwood, Virginia USA) – See all my reviews

I only watched episodes from time to time when "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman" aired on The American Broadcasting Company. Now since Turner Network Television airs "Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman" I watch more episodes. I must say that for one what a great TV-series it is combined with the beauty of Teri Hatcher it makes you feel ready for a great time. Dean Cain is your prototype Clark Kent/Superman with his looks and physique. The show became such a hit due to the great chemistry that existed between Cain and Hatcher. I must say what a beauty Hatcher is I tell you Teri Hatcher is the main reason I watch "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman"! And is Teri's Lois Lane character a damsel in distress or what? Every episode I watch Teri (Lois) is either tied up and gagged or has her mouth taped with duct tape. Teri's Lois Lane character happens to be the most tied- up and gagged character I have ever seen in one certain TV-series or perhaps in Hollywood history. Now you can call her a damsel in distress. What were the shows producers and directors thinking? Poor Teri. To much rope and to many knots for a beauty. But never fear this Superman is always to the rescue. So if you can catch the reruns on Turner Network Television you will not be disappointed.
