Was simply known as ''TheNewAdventures of [[TheFullNameAdventures Superman]]'' (no direct relation to the older animated series ''WesternAnimation/TheNewAdventuresOfSuperman'') in some countries outside the USA, due to executives believing non-American viewers wouldn't understand the pun on 19th century American explorers [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lewis_and_Clark_Expedition Lewis and Clark]]. Go figure.

* [[AdaptationalSuperpowerChange Adaptational Superpower Changes]]: Superman's powers are toned down for the series compared to his film and comic book incarnations. He's still very powerful but more vulenerable to high-tech countermeasures, Kryptonite is more effective and it takes time for him to recover from it's effects and generally it's easier for his opponents to provide a reasonable challenge without getting flattened in five seconds flat.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Tempus, definitely.
-->'''Lois:''' "You're not gonna get away with this."\\
'''Tempus''': "Get away with what? You mean becoming mayor of Metropolis by murdering Perry White? Because somebody might stop me? Big, brawny, looks good in blue? Gee, if only I lived in a dimension with no Superman-- Oh, wait! Duh! I do."

** Clark. Lois notes after spying in his fridge that he eats like an eight year old and looks like Mr Hardbody. This recurrs at other points with Clark constantly snitching donuts, sometimes with superpowers. It seems he does not even have to eat. In a S4 episode, Martha Kent is shown carrying a huge bag full of junk food and candy to stock up the larder with, because she's missing her boy and wants to welcome him home just right, with all of his favourite foods. Another episode opens with Clark fixing breakfast in the morning with eggs ([[MundaneUtility cooked with heat vision, of course]]), coffee, and a big jug of milk, and another episode confirms that even after ''all that'' he goes into work and starts snacking on doughnuts.

* BlandNameProduct: Bill Church's front organization, [[PredatoryBusiness Cost Mart]], is a portmanteau of Wal-Mart and Costco. And they're about as benevolent as you imagine.

** Cain was a college football star until a shoulder injury. During the show's run he wanted to remind people that he was still a strong athlete by appearing on an ''AmericanGladiators'' celebrity edition. Plus there was that [[UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny one-on-one game with Bo Jackson]].

** Lex has two valets, including a gun-toting Pam Grier lookalike (whom Lex was supposedly banging on the side) who fits the same bill as Mercy from the then-upcoming ''SupermanTheAnimatedSeries''.

The show suffered, to an extent, from a known problem with live-action superhero shows: restraints on budget and their effect on the story (see also ''{{Smallville}}'' and ''Series/{{Heroes}}''): Superman rarely fought someone who was a physical match for him, with most villains either being secretive like Luthor or -- much like the earlier [[TheAdventuresOfSuperman George Reeves series]] -- resorting to kidnapping innocents. Occasionally, Superman's power levels were lessened to add drama, but the consistency of those vulnerabilities [[UselessSuperpowers was spotty at best.]] Making up for this were the engaging ''Daily Planet'' cast, a fair amount of wit, and most notably, the phenomenal chemistry between Cain and Hatcher.
