great episode
31 January 2006 | by beet_aSee all my reviews

i love this episode of superman. it was these episodes of the adventures of superman, i think it was the normal sort of story for this series , where you have a scientist or a crime boss or someone wants to know who superman is. in this case it's a insane scientist. my god where did they come up with these characters? i love the shot when Superman comes through the window of the daily planet and you see him as superman and then the next shot he's Clark Kent. great the way they edited that scene. but i love it at the end when the scientist in the end doesn't find out who Superman is but we, the audience know who he is. i have watched the first 23 episodes of this series and they are all great. i know it was shown on TV 53 years ago and some people will say it's dated but i don't care. can't wait for season 2 to come out in March in the UK.
