    When TV Superheroes were New

    Back in the 60s in Hawthorne, CA, I couldn't get the Superman series on TV and thus was always antsy to visit my cousins in Reseda, where the show *was* carried. It was magic! Unlike modern versions, where one doesn't know what to expect in character and script variations, the visual program was like a 3-D comic book, like finally getting to see everyone - Perry White, Lois Lane, Jimmy Olsen, Supes - in person just as DC Comics presented 'em. In grabbing this DVD set, I've found that, though the tech has gone thru the roof in superheroing now, none of the magic has worn off from the old days. The George Reeves version is both high camp and great "realist" fantasy simultaneously...and when I'm done with this box, I'm laying hold of the others and binging.

    Many people find the early episodes of Superman the first TV series cheap and simple in story & special effects. The oldest Baby Boomers of today will tell you that these early comic come to life images of Supey were magical .special and easy to see why George Reeves was so tragically identified and only identified as one of the popular icons of the 50's & 60's.

    Early version translates comics to live action.

    Remastering helps picture quality, up to a point. This isn't HD, folks. The plots are still cheesy, but it's a fun show to put on & veg out to with popcorn. The price is very, very reasonable. I bought this as a Birthday present for a relative.

    Yes I know the Superman TV show from the 50's got progressively cheesy in production, special effects and acting as the final 5 or 6th season rolled around .., but i still grew up and loved the reuns in the 60's as a kid l
