Lois & Clark: The Most 90s Show Ever (A Look Back) | SYFY WIRE

WATCH: Looking back at Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman

Not only is this month the 80th anniversary of our introduction to both Superman and Lois Lane, but this year is the 25th anniversary of Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman.

While parts of the show have aged like fine milk, it's still super fun and enjoyable, especially thanks to the chemistry between Teri Hatcher and Dean Cain, the titular (pun intended espectually for the pectorally blessed Cain) Lois and Clark.

The series has a rather interesting history. Initially developed and executive produced by Deborah Joy LeVine, the show underwent significant changes in Season 2 wherein LeVine, her writing staff, and Tracy Scoggins as Cat Grant were all fired and the first season's Jimmy Olsen, Michael Landes, was replaced in favor of a more early-'90s-floppy-haired-teen-hearthrob Jimmy, Justin Whalin. In addition, John Shea, who played Lex Luthor as the first-season big bad, was bumped from co-star to guest star going forward, and by Seasons 3 and 4, the show went a tinge off the rails (so. many. clones.)

We look back fondly at the 1993 hit that gave us a sexy Clark Kent, a well-coiffured Lex Luthor, and more Jimmy Olsens than frankly anyone asked for.
