This collection of 26 episodes may quite possibly be the best television ever produced. The stories are well written, intelligent, dramatic, and at times, startling. (Originally targeting the kids, the episodes will entertain any adult). And the MUSIC! I defy anyone who grew up as a fan of this show to NOT get goose bumps or a welling up in your heart when you hear the harp glissando as Superman flies to the rescue. The cast is first-rate with the positively stunning Phyllis Coates as Lois Lane, Jack Larson as Jimmy Olson, John Hamilton as Perry White, and Robert Shayne as Inspector Henderson. But the real treat here is George Reeves. No matter how many portrayals of Superman have been attempted over the years, this will always be the standard by which they are measured. No one, and I mean No One, has ever matched the dynamic athleticism with which Reeves portrayed Superman. From the takeoffs to the landings, that big wonderful smile, and square-jawed determination - everything is top notch. A generation of people is grateful for George Reeves' contribution and now a new generation will get to see the true gem. I'm putting together my Christmas list...

Wow! How memorable! how riveting! The first season DVD gives us the extra delight of commentaries by producers Gary H. Grossman and Chuck Harter which add flavor, focus and an inside glimpse into the production of this first great season. Even though these episodes filmed in 1951 were shot at a furious pace, nothing is lost. Every episode is masterfully done even though they were much more violent than later seasons. The acting, the camera work, the lighting and all aspects of production were top notch. For us baby boomers, George Reeves, who was a great actor, was the best Superman ever and really the only one. Bravo!

What a treat! Season one in stunning first run movie quality prints. The television show that enthralled millions of children in the 50's and rerun 60's now available to bring back so many fond memories of a softer time. A must for any fan of nostalgic good times. George Reeves really is the standard Superman and his Clark Kent is the only version that portrays a warm,strong and all around likable guy. For those only aware of the Chris Reeves Kent, this is no bumbler or fumbler. It is someone we would all want as a friend - even without the S under his shirt. A great collection!
