Welcome to the one hundred and fifty first episode of From Crisis to Crisis: A Superman Podcast! This podcast has a simple premise; examine just about every Superman comic published between Man of Steel #1 in 1986 to Adventures of Superman #649 in 2006 in an informative and hopefully entertaining format.
Part index. Part commentary. Part history lesson. All podcast.
One hundred and fifty episodes.
And now for something completely different.
Well…not different per se. Mike and Jeff are still talking about Superman this time out but instead of the Post Crisis comic books they are focusing on the television adventures of the Man of Steel. Right around the time Superman was fully back from the dead ABC began airing LOIS AND CLARK: THE NEW ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN and since that was such a big thing during this era the boys want to talk about it. Instead of taking up time after the comic book talk to do that Mike decided that these should be their own episodes and that pretty much explains what is going on this time out.
When the boys sat down to record this episode the original intent was to do a little overall LOIS AND CLARK talk and then dive into the pilot and the first episode. Well…Mike and Jeff got to talking and suddenly the overall LOIS AND CLARK talk took a full hour and a half, so Mike decided (he sure is bossy) that he would split the episode in two and have all of the overall talk happen in one episode and then the specific episode talk happen in the next. Mike would like to believe that this was for the sake of the audience, but frankly it was also to save his sanity as sitting in front of the computer editing a three hour episode is not the fun it used to be. All of that is a fancy way of saying this time out the boys discuss LOIS AND CLARK in general and a fun discussion it was.
