Critic Reviews for The Adventures of Superman Season 1

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1)

A classic telling of Superman's origin story and might actually be my favorite version of the oft-told tale.

Jul 11, 2018 | Full Review…

A lot like the very earliest Superman comics, from George Reeves' physical appearance to the crime-related stories and general tone. It's a smart show sporting a solid supporting cast.

Jul 10, 2018 | Full Review…

Coates had the brass of a film noir heroine, and helped set the tone for the early Adventures Of Superman episodes, which showed confidence and bustle, like the better B-movies of the era.

Top Critic

These black-and-white episodes zip past faster than the proverbial bullet, have a few demented noir villains and are a lot of fun.
