Dark and frightening

Other reviewers may be correct that "most people" regard the second season as the best. For me, at its best the first season was better than any of the others. Part of it, of course, is the "40s" look of Lois Lane and that she was Clark's equal (if somewhat impulsive) as a reporter.

But there is an important distinction between the first season and what came later. The show was NOT billed as a children's show. In TV Guide, it read "Superman -- Adventure". Very much in keeping with the film noir B movies that were the previous haunts of Superman's writers. These shows stand the test of time.
