Topic: TV Shows
TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #4020 - I have blogged about several TV shows in the past that I was watching. Most of them had comic book connections or were TV shows that were promoted at Comic-Con International or Wonder Con.
Today I'm blogging about a TV show that is on the classic TV network, Memorable Entertainment TV (Me TV).
That show would be the Adventures of Superman. Yes, I watched this TV show as a kid, but not too many episodes. You see I was born in 1952, and this TV show ran for six seasons, from 1952 to 1958. Of course there have been re-runs since then nationwide.
I've been watching the episodes run on Saturday night by recording them to watch later.
Now with the new year of 2015 starting... MeTV has decided to run this series six times a week. Keeping the Saturday night slot, while adding the 4 pm late afternoon slot during the week in addition.
So I'm now recording this series as well during all six days, as I don't recall seeing that many of them.
The series of course stars George Reeves as Clark Kent / Superman. Plus I've met Noel Neill who played Lois Lane in seasons two through six. (See this link for my blog on the 2008 San Diego Comic Con panel.) Plus Jack Larson playing the role of Jimmy Olsen was pretty good too!
The stories in each episode are basically simple to follow, you don't have to have an extensive background in Superman's history to follow along. The show was aimed at kids, but as an adult, I find the 30 minute episodes ranging to be okay to pretty good to watch. I am recording each day's episodes to watch later in the evening.
The episodes have now reached the year that the show was filmed in color. Which should make it easier for today's kids to watch. I know mine in years past just couldn't get into black & white tv shows.
The show runs on MeTV weekdays from 4 to 5 pm. Set your recorder to tape this show! ...
The comic book connection to this TV show? Well, as stated at the ending credits of each episode, the show was featured in Action Comics and Superman comics. Here is a link to what Superman comics there are to read. You'll notice that there are a lot of foreign comics as well as USA published series in that list.
I do have a few Superman comics for sale at my online comic book shop, ComicBooksCircus.com.
My thanks to Me TV for expanding the airing of this classic TV show to six days a week!
