Coming nearly 6 years after the release of Season 1, Superboy: Season 2 was a pleasant surprise. The quality of the Warner Archive DVDs has improved so much, that it has become difficult to distinguish these DVRs from the standard mass produced DVDs that line store shelves. As expected, the playback was excellent. Episodes are separate on the menu. There are no special features (par for the course with the Warner Archive titles). The picture quality is fine (typical of a late 80s syndicated show). The audio is also adequate (it could just be me, but the volume tends to fluctuate from episode to episode, still this should not deter one from making the purchase). The show features some fun guest villians to chew the scenery, along with a new Superboy. My young sons have enjoyed watching the show along with me. This set is highly recommended for fans of the show as well as the Man of Steel in general.

Another treasure for Superman hardcore fans is this TV series. Gerard Christopher really shines as the new Boy of Steel, giving to the character some of the qualities present in the classic Christopher Reeve portray of the Man of Steel, and is an improvement over previous series star, John Haynes Newton (Who also did a good job).

Stacy Hayduk is great and good looking as Lana Lang, while Ian Mitchel Smith is just a comic relief here, but the biggest surprise is Sherman Howard's portray of Lex Luthor, a really wicked and evil character, even with some "Jokerish" mannerisms.

The quality of elements like the stories (Handled by DC Comics writters and really close to the source material) made a contrast with the obvious low budget feel of the show in the scenarios and props.

Sadly, as a made to order DVD, we'll miss different audio tracks, subtitles, behind the scenes specials or commentaries. But at least we have episodes with a good transfer. Just hope to see the remaining seasons, where the stories and acting goes better, and the series ends in a high note.

                        Perfect addition to any collection. Season 1 is great in its classic rite, but season 2 is a must have. The best part is they even included the blurbs between commercials from when it aired in the dvd master, so epicly cheesy. Any comic book fan/geek will love the b-film-esque quality of the special effects and actng. Love it!
