    A lavish romp of campy romance and corny adventure that absolutely must not be taken seriously. If the plot's full of holes, they're plugged with a heedless style that makes this the season's most purely entertaining new show. [10 Sept 1993, p.3D]

    This comic-book show is the smartest, most human hour of programming that Sunday night now has to offer.

    Teri Hatcher is an irresistible dynamo as Lane, a reckless, career-driven loner. [9 Sept 1993, p.49]

    For the most part, exec producer David Jacobs, director Robert Butler and writer/co-exec producer Deborah Joy LeVine succeed, bringing a fresh cleverness to the well-worn Superman mythos without trampling on its tradition. [10 Sept 1993]

    Good-looking, comely and honestly camp, Lois & Clark is an engagingly stylized interpretation of the Ben-Day dotted citizens of the D.C. comic, a snappy, revisionist revisit to the boldly colored cartoon world that Superman and company originally called home. [10 Sept 1993]

    Take away the levitation effects from Lois & Clark and you've got a strained knockoff of Moonlighting.
