One of the better episodes of the entire series
16 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode ran about midway through the first season. It is one of those rare episodes that doesn't feature any of the other series regulars. Lois Lane is missing, as is Jimmy, Perry and Inspector Henderson. Frank Jenks (who appeared in many episodes over the years) co stars as Clark's friend, private investigator Candy Meyers. One of the classic episodes and a personal favorite, though the quality of the print is easily the worst of the first season DVD collection. Nearly all other episodes on the DVD were in near-perfect condition, but this was a terrible copy.. almost as if it came from a 16mm TV print (much-used TV print, I might add). It also has a rather weird opening with a truncated opening theme and Bill Kennedy's voice announcing, "Superman" as the title appears on the screen. In addition the normally seamless transitions (in season 1 only) from the opening theme to the episode title is disjointed. It's the only episode I've ever seen with this strange opening. Other than the quality of this episode on the DVD, it is one of the best. It also contains an audio commentary by Gary Grossman, who authored the book "Cereal to Serial". In the commentary Gary asks the question "why is Superman's costume in the closet instead of under Clark's suit?"... The reason is explained in the dialog... Clark has just returned from the Doctor's office, where he had a physical (the Daily Planet had a new medical insurance plan which required the physical). Plus, in the season 2 episode "Panic In The Sky" it showed more than one Superman costume in Clark's secret closet (although this is contrary to the pilot episode's explanation of the costume, but continuity was always a problem with the series).
