Best show ever

Great show! Good for ages 9 and up - it’s action packed. Not bad on language. It’s entertaining, interesting with amazing storylines. It does need some editing for younger viewers.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (9 ):

Superman & Lois starts out more domestically than some might expect, complete with discussions about bank loans given to Smallville's farmers. However, the realistic soon gives way to the fantastic as Clark and Lois realize one of their sons, Jordan, has superpowers of his own. The time Clark spends with Jordan is where the show's dual focus on the domestic and the impossible works the most seamlessly.

As it stands, however, Superman & Lois follows in the tradition of other Superman series like Smallville by showing that at his heart, Clark is a man who loves family and community over his flashy superhero life. Clark puts his family first as he tries to balance the needs of the world with the needs of his wife and children. Meanwhile, Lois uses her journalistic skills to fight against Morgan Edge, a businessman she sees as a scoundrel who drains small towns of their money. Even the show's villain, Captain Luthor, has reasons for doing what he does rooted in family and honor. In Superman & Lois, the bonds of family and community are rich with storytelling potential.
