** It got so bad the episode they got married was called "[[ThrowTheDogABone Swear to God, This Time We're Not Kidding]]" Phew, good thing they weren't getting ''desperate'' or anything.

* IronyAsSheIsCast: Dean Cain is afraid of flying in real life.



* TheOtherDarrin: The notable changeover from Michael Landis to Justin Whalin (as Jimmy Olsen). The main issue behind Landis' removal was that he looked too old to be a believable Jimmy. And though he played the comedy well, he was a bit too cool to be Clark's sidekick.

** It also interfered with the comic book marriage which would have originally happened in 1992 but was postponed to coincide with the TV show marriage. The resulting gap in their story arc led Jerry Ordway (the then-current writer/penciller of ''The Adventures of Superman'') to comment, "Why don't we just kill him?" [[{{ComicBook/TheDeathOfSuperman}} The rest is history.]]

* MethodActing: You wouldn't know it just from watching him, but John Shea took Lex Luthor very seriously. Not only did he study [[Creator/FriedrichNietzsche Nietzsche]], but he checked himself into John Jay College of Criminal Justice ''in-character'' to get a diagnosis on 'his' pathology. It's a wonder they even let him out.

** Several very famous actresses auditioned for the part of Martha Kent, all of them inspired by the "silver haired farm matron" in the Christopher Reeves films. K Callan showed up in a pink track suit and sneakers and was almost instantly given the role

* RetroactiveRecognition:
** John Shea is probably best known as Lex and playing Adam on ''Series/MutantX''. It's nice that he's still working in his 60's, but damn...Talk about slumming it as an actor.
** Jimmy Olsen is [[Film/FinalDestination being stalked by death]] every moment of his life ...Not unlike this show, come to think of it.
** As for the other Jimmy? He once saved the world from [[Film/DungeonsAndDragons Jeremy Irons' eyebrows]].
** After leaving the Daily Planet, Cat Grant parlayed her years of gossip column experience into [[Series/BabylonFive commanding a space station]].
** Inspector Henderson is initially played by Brent Jennings, better-known as JiveTurkey vampire [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Mr. Trick]] (Jennings reprises the role of Henderson in ''[[WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries Superman: The Animated Series]]'').
** Ching (that is, the [[TheOtherDarrin first one]]) ended up marrying an Earth woman named [[Series/TheCloser Brenda]].
** [[Series/CSIMiami Det. Calleigh]] moonlights as Lana Lang for an episode.
** On that note: Hey, [[Series/{{CSI}} Warrick]], nice dreadlocks!
** In Season 2's ChristmasEpisode, Jimmy Olsen's girl of the week is (fittingly) [[Film/TheWorldIsNotEnough Dr. Christmas Jones]].
** And he follows it up with dating ''Film/{{Bloodrayne}}.'' Seriously, what is it with Jimmy and these women?
** Raymond's brother [[Series/EverybodyLovesRaymond Robert]] used to be an [[CannotTellAJoke unfunny]] clergyman named "Reverend Bob".
** [[Series/{{Supernatural}} Bobby Singer]] once stole a scientists' invisible suits (maybe he needs them to help with demon hunting?)



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: An earlier script for "Seconds" had Mindy Church team up with Lex to try and kill Superman, and being punished for her crimes.
** Kevin Sorbo was in the running to play Clark/Superman. In fact, it was a toss-up between [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VQpGY2m_WFA him and Dean Cain.]] (skip to 6:09 for the good stuff.)
