Tread Perilously — Lois & Clark The New Adventures Of Superman: When Irish Eyes Are Killing

tp1400-1Tread Perilously rounds out SuperJune with a look at Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman and its third season episode, “When Irish Eyes Are Killing.”

After Clark decides he loves Lois too much to date her, their sniping is overheard by Lois’s old flame, Patrick Sullivan. As it happens, he’s come to Metropolis to deal with some old family business. Meanwhile, a string of antique robberies and ritual killings might be related. But do their Irish connections have anything to do with Sullivan, who is also looking to rekindle his affair with Lois? Also, will Clark realize he’s being stupid?

Erik and Justin immediately launch into Geography Corner. They also rate the Superman actors of television. Dean Cain gets raked over the coals for his acting and his acting only. The sniping between Lois and Clark proves grating. The “will they/won’t they” aspect of the show gets examined, as does the Ron Silver quality of this week’s villain. The “Oirish” accent gets a workout. The pair get lost talking what sort of sub-compact Clark Kent would’ve drove in the 1990s, the Post-Crisis Superman, and Superman III‘s “Bad Superman.” Also, Justin rallies against the notion of ritual killing in a Superman show.
