Jimmy Strikes Again
4 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode belongs to Jimmy Olson. When Superman saves a PI, played by the wonderful Elisha Cook, Jimmy wants to emulate him; that is until he actually meets him. He has none of the stereotypical qualities like the Bogart characters. When the detective and Lois get themselves captured, Jimmy goes to the rescue, but gets himself handcuffed to a bed frame and ultimately locked in a basement where gas is being pumped. He bungles everything, trying to be the epitome of the Dashiell Hammett type of gumshoe. Of course, Superman rears his head again. How he does it is the gist of this offering. Nevertheless, it was great fun to see Jimmy strut his stuff as he pretends to be this character.
