ITEM#: 10184799

Containing one of the most instantly recognizable intro sequences to a TV show ("Look up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's Superman!"), THE ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN was the first attempt to bring the comic-book character to television screens. This first season originally aired in 1952, and established great cinematic characters such as Lois Lane, Jimmy Olsen, and of course Clark Kent himself. By day Kent attempts to live an anonymous existence as a reporter for the Daily Planet, but when trouble comes calling, he transforms himself into Superman, the last survivor from the planet Krypton. George Reeves convincingly played Superman throughout the first season of the show, and he returned to play the Man of Steel in all the subsequent seasons. Although it soon turned into a laugh-fest, this first series of adventures takes a serious approach to the characters, mirroring later interpretations such as LOIS & CLARK from the 1990s. The show was hugely popular in its day, and this collection of episodes from the first season of THE ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN affords viewers the chance to wallow in some awesome retro TV action.

    If I was guaranteed that what I saw on the advertisement was what I would be given, I would give this rating an excellent. On the package it says "The Complete First Season" - yet there is only the first 6 episodes. There is actually 24 episodes in the first season. Why isn't all of the episodes on this supposing first season? I don't know why. Please read reviews before making any purchases. I asked for a complete refund and that my rewards be placed back on my account. Hopefully the associate will do what he says. Make sure you do not open the package or you may be stuck with unwanted merchandise.

  • misleading ad
    Verified Purchase

    Your ad was very misleading. The picture of the DVD says contains all 26 episodes of season 1, but when I got the DVD it only contained 6 episodes. I was very disappointed. Unfortunately I opened the DVD and thus couldn't return it.

  • more powerful than a locomotive.....

    This sampler of 4 complete episodes is a nice way to touch base with TV's Superman, Jimmy, Mr. White and the original no-nonsense Lois Lane. I never before saw the original TV version of how Superman was sent to Earth. This sure takes me back to after-school and before dinner time in elementary school. Of course, the sets are plain and the stories simplestic, but nostalgia fills in the gap nicely. Rated down for no additional material beyond the 4 episodes, no art gallery, no commentary, no additional features. Rated average for decent transfer ( and I've seen some bad DVD transfers)

  • Superman Season 1?
    Verified Purchase

    The shows were great. The value was deceiving because the package online made it look like you were getting 26 episodes. The package I received said The Complete First Season on the top, and at the bottom it said: Disk 1 Episodes 1-6. Ther needs to be more honesty in advertising. I would have been better off if I called Customer Support before ordering.
