When I was a young'un, I read the comics. I can remember seeing Superman: The Movie on the silver screen in my youth like it was just yesterday. And though I've had some ups and downs with the various television incarnations of the Man of Steel, I have nothing but praise for the efforts to continue his legacy for fandom throughout the years.
But I have to admit that I'm having a lot of problems with Superman & Lois.
Honestly, it wouldn't be fair for me to wax on about the reasons why the show just kinda/sorta leaves me cold. In fact, I've only watched three episodes of its first season (the rest are just sitting in my DVR's queue). It's not that was unimpressed with it -- so far as I can say -- but rather it's just that I'm really not all that seeing the world's greatest superhero domesticated. Does that make sense to any fellow Superfans out there on the Information Superhighway?
It's like ... say ... Hercules. Hercules is arguably one of the greatest characters from mythology, right? He had all those trials to prove himself worthy, etc., etc., etc. Well, what interest would there be in creating a show about Hercules being, say, a single dad? I get thematically where any creative person might want to go with such a program ... it's just I'm really not all that interested in seeing a part-man/part-god character change diapers.
In any event, I did see that the show's second season will be setting flight soon, so I wanted to share the trailer for those of you following. Check it out, if you're inclined.
