THE SUPERMAN AND LOIS TAPES EPISODE 13 – BROKEN TRUST OR STAY IN THE ROOM, JORDAN!

Episode 13: Broken Trust or Stay In The Room, Jordan!

The BAM Crew (Bethany, Alison, and Michael) are back and so are new episodes of Superman and Lois.  Broken Trust was the sixth episode of the series, which aired on May 18, 2021.  Jordan’s powers are getting out of control, in more ways than one, and Jonathan pays the price for it.  Meanwhile, Lois discovers something about Captain Luthor and Lana gets a fantastic job offer.  There is much discussion amongst The Crew about Jordan’s actions, Clark as happy dad, why a kid named Tag having super speed is kind of ironic, and the proper use of The Angry Red Eyes of Anger.

Seriously, the writing staff of this show knows when to use The Angry Red Eyes of Anger.

The Superman and Lois Tapes can be found on both Apple Podcasts and Spotify. The show can be reached by email at [email protected].  You can also leave comments here or over at the Facebook page for the show, which you can get to by clicking this link.

Next Time: The Crew will be talking about the next episode, Man of Steel.

One thought on “THE SUPERMAN AND LOIS TAPES EPISODE 13 – BROKEN TRUST OR STAY IN THE ROOM, JORDAN!”

  1. It’s good to hear you talking about Superman and Lois again, and it was good to see this episode after the show’s hiatus. I agree with you that this show has been very well-written (and well-acted, too, I think), with very little “filler” material, and I’m all in for that. I am very happy that the actors playing Jonathan and Jordan are teens, playing teens, although I do think no one in real life would mistake either of them for high school freshmen. To your point about the substance abuse among the students of Smallvill High, this is, and has been for a long time, a problem in high schools throughout this country (at least). I hope the show will address it more directly at some point.
    Also, in the show, as in many TV shows and movies featuring Superman, it’s not entirely clear to me how “visible” heat vision is supposed to be. In my beloved Silver Age comics (I know Michael isn’t the world’s biggest Silver Age fan.), Superman’s vision powers were not visible to others. Often, in the guise of Clark Kent, he would surreptitiously use his heat vision for some reason, and it was quite clear that the people near him could not see the eye beams. That makes sense to me. The current “take” on heat vision seems to me that it’s “Laser beams shooting out of his eyes”. Even if that were true, laser beams, themselves, are not normally visible as beams, but only as a small red dot at the target area, which, under ideal circumstances wouldn’t be extremely noticeable. I’ve always been of the opinion that, since many of Superman’s powers are not directly perceptible to others (X-ray vision, telescopic vision, super hearing, for example), he should be very careful about not letting the general public know he has such “stealth” powers. That would be an additional advantage for him. On the “super hearing” front, it seemed to me that Jordan’s “attacks” were triggered by sound in several cases, so I wonder if he’s developing super hearing. I’ll have to pay attention to that as the series continues.
    I have to agree that Sam Lane continues to have the “most punchable face”, and wonder when he’s going to consider enrolling his grandson into that military “school”.
    Thanks, as always for your wonderful podcast.
