Superman tears down the door is able to bring Lois back to life. Later,
Lois and Clark take a walk in the park where Clark tells Lois how much
he loves her and then asks her to marry him.
In Lois & Clark's first season, Clark Kent (Dean Cain) and Lois Lane
(Teri Hatcher) joined the ranks of Sam and Diane and David and Maddie as
TV's sparkiest couples whose devoted fans couldn't wait to see get
together. Season 2 takes the star-crossed duo--and the series--to "the
next step"; a long-awaited first kiss (the episode "Lucky Leon"), and
declarations of love, culminating in a season-ending marriage proposal
("And the Answer Is..."). But getting to that deliriously romantic
rain-soaked moment is all the fun. There are diabolical villains for
Superman to foil, including a resurrected (and bald) Lex Luthor (John
Shea reprising his first-season role in "The Phoenix"), a trash-TV host
(Raquel Welch in "Top Copy), the vengeful Prankster (Bronson Pinchot in
"The Prankster" and "Return of the Prankster"), and, incredibly, a
time-traveled Al Capone (William Devane in "That Old Gang of Mine").
There is also a romantic rival for Clark's affections, Deputy D.A.
Mayson Drake (Farrah Forke in "Church of Metropolis") and for Lois's
(Jim Pirri as agent Daniel Scardino in "Resurrection").
Lois and Clark's second season not only features improved special
effects, but a stellar roster of character actors: Roger Corman veteran
Dick Miller as Lois's uncle and Peter Boyle as Intergang kingpin Bill
Church in "Church of Metropolis"; a reunited Sherman Hemsley and Isabel
Sanford (The Jeffersons) in the Dean Cain-penned holiday episode,
"Season's Greedings"; Bruce Campbell as Bill Church Jr. in "Individual
Responsibility"; and Terry Kiser of Weekend at Bernie's fame as H.G.
Wells in "Tempus Fugitive," the fan-favorite episode in which futuristic
villain Tempus spills the beans to the "galactically stupid" Lois about
Clark's secret identity. "That was worth the whole trip," he cackles,
and for series fans, this benchmark (albeit fleeting) moment is probably
worth the price of this super six-disc set. --Donald Liebenson
