    Comments about Superboy: The Complete First Season DVD:

    Very disappointing that people actually used to watch something like this and call it good television. Compared to "Smallville" it is a complete let down. I can only recommend this for the nostalgic and/or someone who wants to re-capture a childhood memory. Having never seen this as a child or young adult, I was very disappointed. Purchase at the risk of being put to sleep in a very short period of time. :)

    Comments about Superboy: The Complete First Season DVD:

    I was born in 1984. This show was my formal introduction to Superman (along with that cartoon from '88). It started a life-long love of Superman and superheroes. My first novel was an adaptation of Superman VI. My favorite pajamas as a kid had a little cape velcroed to the back. One of my first great disappointments in life was when I found out DC had killed Superman and brought him back with a mullet. Heck, the watch I wear to work is shaped like Superman's shield. This character means so much to me, and it all really started with this show.

    If you love Superman, particularly the Chris Reeve stuff, you'll love Superbow. Season 1 is the weakest season. Hopefully we'll get Seasons 2-4 someday.

    I'm lookin' at you, WB.

        I wanted to see it after watching it when I was younger and it was on Sale!!! It looked great in widescreen on my HDTV, as well as good sound quality.

        I got a kick out of seeing it again, especially since it was shot in and around Orlando,FL. I just hope the following Seasons are released. The show got much better and added characters from the comic book.

          Comments about Superboy: The Complete First Season DVD:

          The first season of the Adventures of Superboy starred John Haymes Newton (Superboy/Clark Kent) and Stacy Haiduk (Lana Lang) in the leading roles of the series. The series was created by the mastermind of Ilya Salkind who was producer on the first three Superman films and Supergirl.

          This initial season of Superboy harkens back to the Superboy comics of the 1960s and 70s. The first season is pretty light on character development but there are some worth wild episodes such as the "Alien Solution," & the sequels "The Aliens Revenge, Parts 1 & 2," which the series started to hit it stride. These episodes really develop where the show goes in the last three seasons which is great story telling and excellent action.

          The Superboy series is one of the most unrated series in the Superman legacy. The series only had one initial airing and never aired again as repeats on television due to a constant legal battles with the character of Superboy. Until 2006, when WB finally released Season One.

          As to when or if WB plans on releasing the final three years of the show is anyone guess. It really is an enjoyable series and note worthy to be on fans shelves just like Smallville and Lois & Clark. WB is really missing out on this installment into the Superman legacy if they leave this in the vault to gather dust.

          COME WB release the last three seasons already!!!

            Comments about Superboy: The Complete First Season DVD:

            I just picked this set up before Christmas and I wasn't too sure how the show would be, since I was real young when it first ran on TV, but I must say that this is a really fun show and, even though the episodes are only a half-hour long, the plots are really crammed up with action and character development. I would really like to see the remaining seasons released on DVD.
