The Fly SE
Can't wait to get this.
Adventures of Superman TV box,
Is that Lois and Clark? Just wondering, what did you think of that show?

No, this is the George Reeves show, with some nifty bonus features, which was a nice surprise.

I loved the Lois & Clark show originally, but it ran out of steam quickly and the effects and stories got silly.

When it was good, it was really good, but when it was bad it was pretty bad, in a camp way. An odd series, which I find hard to "place" now, as it wasn't one thing and not the other. Fun at the time, but cringe-worthy now.

The same could be said for the Reeves show, of course, but that has a nostalgia value and quaintness that is hard to beat.

The first three seasons until she found out he was Superman were good, but then it ALL WENT DOWNHILL. (over-the-top villains and A LOT of plotholes. Plus I hate the second Jimmy Olsen.)

I liked it better when Lois was supposed to be kind of a b**** because she played that much better than being a "nice girl". Right, like she was a journalist , she and Clark barely did any work or rush around for stories anymore by the end of the series. What was that about?? It was all about: "Oh, Clark, I love you!" It was all about showing TH in skimpy outfits by the end. And Clark always let her walk all over him! :x Some "Superman." :roll:

Because she couldn't act to save her life. Yeah she was pretty but so what, was she really believable as "Lois Lane" by the end? Why do you think she got stuck doing all those "Radio Shack" commercials after the show ended?

I know she's in "Desperate Housewives" now, but do you think she'd still be as good in it if it was called "Desperate Open-Heart Surgeons"?? I doubt it. :roll:

BTW, good Critic review! :wink:

Well nothing really.... :oops: :oops: It's just that the stories were LAME. (there was no point to them so they pandered to the male audience instead of having a story.)


Dean Cain was such a good actor, way better than TH. So how did SHE wind up a star and not him??

When they started to go into that whole alternate reality/time travel garbadge, you knew that show was finished.

Well... I just got me

The Wizard Of Oz pack
Tales From The Crypt 2
Robots
War Of The Worlds (1953)
Titanic SE
FernGully 2-disc
Office Space SE
Looney Tunes Golden Collection 3
and the LT Movie Collection.


I would have picked up Madagascar, Herbie and Charlie And The Cjocolate Factory, but my import retailer only had the French/bilingual packaged Canadian versions.


One question - does Charlie And The Chocolate Factory 2-DISC come with a cardboard slipcover in the US? They only had the Canadian one (with the cover) and one US copy (without) so I left it for now but will be going back next week.

A DEFINITE answer as to whether the US R1 Charlie should have a slip would be great - thanks!

Just wanted to make sure this didn't get lost, as it does make a difference as to where I order/pick it up from... :)

Anyone...anyone...

Can't believe that no-one bought the Charlie 2-disc or knows what it looks like?
