Tread Perilously — Superboy: Succubus

tp1400-1Tread Perilously’s SuperJune heads back to Central Florida and the land of first-run syndication with Superboy via its first season episode, “Succubus.”

When Clark, Lana, and T.J. White are assigned to cover the week-long visit of romance author Pamela Dare, T.J. expects the worst, but is soon swept up in her charms. Is it true love or is Pamela only using him to get to Superboy? Is she aware he and Clark are the same person? And will Lana be able to step in before Clark and T.J.’s friendship is forever destroyed?

Erik tries to explain to guest star Sybil Danning. Both he and Justin try to figure out why anyone would try to tell a story like this in a half-hour, first-run syndicated program. They also mourn for guest character Simon and get lost talking about co-star Stacy Haiduk. Erik immediately recognizes elements of DisneyWorld and University of Central Florida in the background of shots. The cable softcore porn production qualities naturally leads to a digression. The presence of T.J. White leaves the pair wondering “Where’s Jimmy Olsen?” The apparent absence of certain scenes leads to a confused plot recap and Justin recalls the days when “blue hair jokes” were a thing.
