Superman Series Episode 6

Two and a Half Supermen!

Richard Donner, Christopher Reeve, even Richard Lester and the Salkinds, all had declared they were done with Superman.  After a disappointing Superman 3 and a disastrous Supergirl the franchise seemed more toxic than kryptonite and the rights were sold off to cheapo genre film company Cannon Films.  But despite star Reeves’ earlier comments distancing himself from the character, Reeve again returned in exchange for both control over the story and a guarantee his pet project Street Smart would be made.  The film ended up a notorious Nuclear Man sized bomb, but is it as bad as is thought?  Listen to Jakob, Stuart, and Arnie’s review to find out!
