It wasn't really a Superman (or Clark Kent) show, IMO.

It was a Buffy/Dawson's Creek hybrid that used the trapping of Superman.

The whole thing was a giant c--- tease, if you'll pardon my language. It's whole shtick was alluding to some greatness (that the viewer should breathlessly know about), but never attaining greatness.

Similarly, I don't really consider Lois and Clark a legit Superman show. It was simply using trapping of Superman as a chick-flick Moonlighting type deal.

The Superman Franchise would have been better off without both those shows. Both were big nothings.

Both shows kept Superman's name (if not the \S/ in front of people's eyes and in the forefront of their minds. Superman also attained a good-sized female audience and youthful audience it might NOT have without these shows.
