->I actually think that Savalas plays one of the better Bond villains in the series, one of the best developed. I just think he’s hampered by following [[Creator/DonaldPleasence Pleasence]], which means that he has to inherit all these design attributes that attempt to connect him to his predecessor -- the cat, the costume, that sort of thing. The problem is that these trappings don’t suit Savalas as well as they suited Pleasence and, as a result, he occasionally looks a bit uncomfortable. I have no doubt that -- had Savalas been playing a character free of the burden of following Pleasence -- he’d be regarded as one of the strongest Bond villains in the canon.

->Finally, though the Music/JohnWilliams music never gets old, cribbing the style of the closing credits from [[{{Film/Superman}} the films]] was just grossly unnecessary and reminds us that despite the few new layers this show has added to the mythos generally, it's been hobbling along in utter dependence on the specific feelings and associations we've acquired ''somewhere else.''\\\
Is that any kind of legacy?

'''Chris''': Even then, man. I get why people would want the Kents around, since it gives Superman someone to talk to who knows his secret, and gives a nice way to humanize him, but Jor-El’s part in the Superman story is over the second he puts the baby in the rocketship. Do people really like those first [[{{Film/Superman}} two Christopher Reeve movies]] so much that they think Jor-El’s disembodied voice needs to be telling a dude in his 20s whether he should get married?
