THE SUPERMAN AND LOIS TAPES EPISODE 16: LOYAL SUBJEKTS OR BOY, THAT ESCALATED QUICKLY

Episode 16: Loyal Subjekts or Boy, That Escalated Quickly

The BAM Crew (Bethany, Alison, and Michael) are back with their coverage of episode 9 of Superman and Lois, which was titled Loyal Subjekts.  It could have also been titled Boy, That Escalated Quickly or The Aesthetics Were Very Pleasing.

Seriously.  None of The Crew was expecting a thirst trap but one was tripped nonetheless.

Anyway, things go from bad to worse as Lois, Chrissy, and Clark dig deeper into why Morgan Edge is so fixated on Smallville, Lois has a confrontation with Edge that surprised Michael, Jordan gets a new super-power while also getting extremely ill, Jonathan seriously ups his game via weaponry, Kyle gets the crazy eyes, and Morgan Edge reveals something really, really, really important to Superman, leading to one of the best cliffhangers of the series thus far.

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.

The main theme for the show is “Heroes” by the awesome Mike Schmidt.  You can find his work over at Speed Force Music.

Next Time: The Crew will be talking about the next episode, O Mother, Where Art Thou.

  1. I believe that Morgan Edge (if that is his real name) was speaking metaphorically when he called Superman his “brother”, as in “brother Kryptonian”, but I can’t imagine that he is, biologically, Kal-El’s brother. I’ll be very interested to see how this plays out.
    I’ll also be interested to see how Sam Lane deals with this threat. From the previews of the next episode, it looks like there’s going to be a heavy military presence in Smallville, and I suppose Sam is going to want to collect as much X-Kryptonite as he can, for whatever purpose he can put it to, and I imagine Lois and Clark will have something to say about whatever his plans are.
    On the question of non-powered comic characters whom I’d like to see added, I enthusiastically support the idea of Pete Ross, especially if we get to see him, somehow, discover Superman’s secret identity, and guard that knowledge even from Clark himself. I would also suggest that, since we haven’t really seen much of Smallville’s police presence, maybe we might see Police Chief Parker at some point, maybe even growing into a comparable role to Robert Shayne’s Inspector Bill Henderson character from The Adventures of Superman, but that’s probably just a pipe dream.
    Also, if you’re taking listener’s opinions on what to do for episodes after the season ends, I agree that doing an “overview of this first season of the TV series” episode would be an excellent idea, looking at the plot threads and character developments once there’s a full season’s worth to look at.
    Thanks, as always.

  2. So why does Batman get a pass when he does the same kinds of thing Sam Lane is doing?
