REVIEW: Superman & Lois – Season 2, Episode 8 “Into Oblivion”

While nothing spectacular happens, “Into Oblivion” is another strong episode, moving the plot and character arcs forward in unexpected ways. It also makes a good argument not just for Superman but for superhero stories in general. Clark struggles to deal with Jonathan’s drug use, and Lois wond...

REVIEW: Superman & Lois Season 2, Episode 7 “Anti-Hero”

REVIEW: Superman & Lois – Season 2, Episode 3 “The Thing in the Mines”

With “The Thing in the Mines,” Superman & Lois’ second season falters. The main story suggested in the title takes a back seat to the subplots, and as they play out, it’s becoming clear that none of them are nearly as interesting as the burgeoning threat. It doesn’t help that they take...
