What I’m Watching: Superman and Lois

Superman and Lois: Season 1, Episode 3 “The Perks of Not Being a Wallflower” (B+)

Smallville really is a small town, and the Kent and Cushing families are interacting on a number of levels in both generations. Sarah declaring to her mother that she could talk to her about anything in front of Jonathan and Jordan led to a good deal of personal information being revealed that will probably serve to make them even closer, especially her and Jordan, who she seemed to want to be interested in her coming to the game after she finally broke up with Sean. Jordan was smart to knock Sean down on the football field and then apologize to him for the “not cool” act of kissing Sarah, and hopefully that will be one less thing he’ll have to worry about. Clark volunteering to be assistant coach of the football team will likely lead to comedy, though it will also enable him to keep a closer eye on his sons. I did chuckle at Clark thinking that Lana had mistaken Jonathan for Jordan since actor Jordan Elsass portrays Jonathan, which I’m sure creates confusion on set. On a more dramatic note, I liked the quickness with which Lois pushed her beacon and Superman showed up to burst through a wall and try to fell her attacker. Things didn’t work out so well for him after he managed to get away, and it seems like there are more powerful super-powered beings ready to do Edge’s dirty work and clean up any messes. Lois and her new editor aren’t going to back down from this investigation, and they’ll likely end up in harm’s way again soon.
