Welcome to the two hundredth and thirty-fifth 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.
Mike and Jeff get back to the third season of Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman this time out with three episodes that are just…terrible.
Seriously. This is not a good Lois and Clark episode. It’s so not good that the boys start talking about the CW super-hero shows and what they thought of the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover instead of the first episode they were supposed to be discussing.
Anyway, they start their Lois and Clark talk with the episode titled Contact, which mixes the very nineties tropes of an evil computer software developer and alien abductions as well as introducing Star, Lois’ clairvoyant, next-door neighbor. It’s actually the best of the three episodes, and that isn’t saying a whole lot. Oh, and Clark breaks up with Lois at the end of the episode.
Next is When Irish Eyes Are Killing, where an old friend of Lois’ comes to town and he’s not only trying to seduce Lois but he’s also stealing relics to become a super powered druid.
Oh, and Superman kills him at the end of the episode.
Seriously. He does.
Finally, we have Just Say Noah, where a relationship counselor/cult leader starts kidnapping people that have great relationships so he can put them suspended animation. Why? Because he’s going to flood the Earth. Or, God is going to. Because the cult leader talks to him on a phone that looks like the Bat Phone. This episode is really just an excuse to get Lois and Clark back together again.
You get all of this and some fun, retro commercials with John Cleese selling Compaq computers.
