What was your first reaction to George Reeves and/or the Superman series?
I was about 6 years old (1956) when I first remember TAOS. George was totally believeable as the Man of Steel and I loved his Uniform and wished I could fly and be invulnerable, too!!

What are your 10 favorite episodes?

  • The Mind Machine

  • Crime Wave

  • The Deserted Village

  • The Face and the Voice

  • Ghost Wolf

  • Mystery in Wax

  • Divide and Conquer

  • The Haunted Lighthouse

  • The Big Forget

  • The Evil Three


What are some of your favorite scenes from the series?
There are way too many to mention here, but I really loved the 'take-off's' in 1951........ the wire ones. Both George and George Fisher were yanked away and it almost seemed like 'fast-speed'........ it happened so fast and appeared so realistic. I also love the "Preview" segments from '51 ~ back then, they were almost as exciting as the episodes and they still hold up well today. The fast-paced scenes and Bill Kennedy's narration were first-rate!!

What interesting mistakes or inside jokes have you detected?
(LOL) Check out my "
Bloopers" page!!!

Aside from Superman/Kent, who was your favorite character on the show and why?
I liked John Hamilton. He was great as the crusty, ornery "Chief" and his exchanges with Olsen were superb. Also, underneath it all, he really loved his staff of three!

How do you view the series today, as an adult, differently from when you were a child?
Aside from knowing all the episodes by heart today, they still bring back that joy I felt back then and for about 26 minutes, I'm that 6 year old kid all over again!!! I'll never tire of these 104 'Adventures'.....!!!
