Superman And Lois started off phenomenally, so far everyone loves it. It’s gotta be the best-received Arrowverse show I’ve ever seen, it’s downright impressive. The first episode made it clear what the show was going to focus on and the second episode delivers in spades. Every character gets a chance to shine, including the boys. This episode further develops the relationships between the Kents and their new friends. We also get a closer look into Clark’s life as Superman and we see Lois is no slouch either. Then the whole thing ends with a really cool, if somewhat predictable, reveal.
I think that’s one of the reasons this show is so impressive so far. When the showrunners said the “And Lois” was important, they weren’t kidding. Lois stands out in this show just as much as Clark does. Tulloch is honestly the perfect Lois Lane and I’m really glad she’s attached to this show. Her storyline is interesting and it’s nice she can stand on her own. Also, I never thought I’d live to see Lois quit the Daily Planet but I love how she stands by her ideals.
A little more predictable is the twin’s storyline. It’s something we’ve seen a thousand times before. One twin is jealous of the other, the school problems, etc. I’m really interested to see the two interact and to see Jordan learn to navigate his powers (assuming he actually has any). So far, this is the weakest storyline but I hope that changes. I like the twins, don’t get me wrong. They’re fun characters but we need to move past the high school drama.
Seeing Clark bond with his son was priceless though. The man is trying, he’s trying damn hard and it’s just not enough. Moments like that are why we need to focus on Clark a little too.
On the Superman front, we got a fight that was better than anything I’ve seen in the Arrowverse. The CGI in this show is astonishing and it’s all so well done. The Stranger, a Luthor from another world, seemed way more impressive in the first episode. For a show that had Clark and General Lane getting along, I’m surprised they ditched that so fast. I’m really hoping that Lane doesn’t side with this strange Luthor, but we’ll see what happens.
The reveal that this stranger comes from another world was something I honestly expected. What I didn’t expect was him coming from a world where Superman was evil. Like I said at the beginning, it’s predictable but fun.
All-in-all Superman And Lois is in a really good position. Let’s hope it keeps up the momentum, right?
