The Man of Steel & the Girl of Steel are back in action, with Superman’s enemies causing an earthquake in Gotham City, and Lois Lane and Clark Kent racing against time to save the city from destruction. It’s difficult not to make comparisons to the Superman and Lois of 1960s TV series, with the iconic characters in their first appearance together since the show wrapped in 1974.
It’s been a while since we’ve had an episode of “Superman: The Animated Series” that’s been this good. And after four years, it’s about time. The focus is on Superman’s (voiced by Jerry O’Connell) relationship with his mother (guest star Susan Eisenberg) and wife (guest star Katee Sackhoff), and in particular, their search for his father, which provides a nice counterpoint to the usual theme of Superman’s struggle against evil. A standout is a scene in which Lois (voice of Tara Strong) does a little investigative work of her own, visiting a small town in Wyoming to investigate the disappearance of a local girl.
This week, season one of The CW’s Krypton wrapped up, and the series tries to pick up the pieces for a season two. There was a lot of bad and good in this episode, with the good coming from the character work, the directing, and the look of the series. But what really stands out is the music. The score is minimal and muted, which is perfect for the subject matter, but it also works in tandem with the show’s muted palette and muted colors to create a stark contrast. This is a show that really wants you to think about what it’s saying.. Read more about superman rotten tomatoes and let us know what you think.
CHECK : Superman & Lois – Season 1 Episode 10 Oh Mom, Where Are You?
O Mother, Where Art Thou? is a pretty good episode, but it’s the first time Superman and Lois manage to present Superman’s story as it should be (aside from the lack of red shorts). It almost feels like a season finale, or at least an episode before the season break – and judging by the location, it could have been planned that way. Superman, Lois and Sam try to find a way to stop Morgan Edge from taking over Earth with the Kryptonians. Lana will do anything to save Kyle and keep her family together. John and Jordan offer their shoulders to Sarah. It’s pretty clear where the episode will continue after The Betrayed Subjects, and O Mother, Where Art Thou? is not teased. Morgan Edge gives a nasty monologue explaining who he is and why he turns people into Kryptonians. He is Tal-Ro of Krypton, Kal-El’s half-brother from Lara’s previous marriage, and he came to Earth for Superman. He’s not very well received either, and is willing to replace people with dead Kryptonians using the Eradicator, the same technology that allows Superman to talk to Jor-El. That’s basically Zod’s evil plan in Man of Steel, and I can see why people are frustrated with it. I didn’t like Man of Steel, and the plot here makes more sense, so it doesn’t bother me that much. And it all ends with a quick desert fight that isn’t as exciting or visually interesting as most of the previous superfights in the series. But it serves as a backdrop to this season’s climax. *SPOILERS* The origins of Clark and the reasons for his conquest of the earth work because O Mother, where art thou? uses them to show the importance of the Kents in Clark’s morality and how bad it could have ended if he had been discovered by the worst part of humanity instead of the best. Edge was found by people who immediately tried to kill him. He was imprisoned and the British government experimented on him for most of his youth. It is no wonder that he sees all the faults of humanity and wants to correct them by destruction; nor is it surprising that he clings to nature while Clark devotes himself to education. Morgan Edge sees himself not as a villain, but as a savior of his people at the expense of a monstrous race that tortured a child for being different. To him, Superman is a traitor who sided with Edge’s executioners instead of his own people. The ideological conflict between the hero and villain is more interesting than the physical conflict, and the pain that turned Edge into a monster makes it understandable, even sympathetic. The series forces us to see the alleged killer the way Superman would: as a lost soul who never had a chance. Even in someone so evil, Superman can find the good, and that’s what sets him apart from Edge or his John Henry Irons lookalike of the world. Where the film fails is the unnecessary and unwise decision to make Edge the brother of Superman. On Krypton there was a tradition of arranged marriages, and Lara was married to Edge’s father. She fell in love with Jor-El and left her first husband – and child, I believe – to start a new family. In that case, Lara doesn’t look so good. Superman is the result of a broken family and an abandoned child. And it doesn’t even seem to bother him when he finds out; he doesn’t ask questions or pass judgment when he finds out more about his mother. And none of this should have happened. Edge’s father may simply have been a scientist who worked with Lara and helped her develop the Eradicator; it’s also possible that he was in love with her and jealous of her marriage to Jor-El. Their shared Kryptonian blood would be enough to bind Clark and Edge; there was no need to shrink House El to do so. Family flaws aside, it’s nice to see Clark finally get to know his mother, and that was woven into the story of the sacrifices mothers are willing to make for their families. O Mother, Where Art Thou? not only brings Lara back to Clark, but does so through the other mother mentioned in the title: Lana Lang. Lana lost her husband to Edge’s experiments, and she’s about to lose her daughter while trying to keep her family together. There’s not much a man can do in a battle of the Kryptonians. Like Sarah, Lana is forced to watch, hoping that Superman will eventually save the day. So she grabbed the opportunity to serve as Lara’s human vessel with both hands; she had finally found a way to actively help her family, not to mention save the world. And while she’s putting her own family back together, she manages to rebuild another family, allowing Clark to be reunited with part of his mother. Superman and Lois focuses a lot on the secondary characters, and Lana has become a great character. Unbeknownst to them, the Kent family then helps to fix Lana up. Jordan and John lead the song O Mother, Where Art Thou? It comforts Sarah, who is dealing with the loss of faith and respect from her parents, but like Lana, they become restless from doing nothing. John decides to tell Sarah the truth – or at least enough of the truth – to make her stop upsetting her parents. The boys take him to a military facility to see what happened to his father. Jonathan becomes the embodiment of his father’s heart when it comes to Jordan retaining his powers, and his dedication to the truth is the main indicator of that. Truth is what holds the Kent/Lane together in difficult situations, and the lack of truth has divided the Lang/Cushings. All it took was a moment of honesty to set things right, and by acknowledging this, John becomes his father’s son in the same way as the overpowered Jordan. The end of the song Oh Mother, where are you? surprised me with its determination. I didn’t expect Kryptonian owners to heal so quickly. Leslie Larr is still around, and Edge seems to think this is more of a setback than a failure of his plan, so we clearly have a lot more to look forward to this season. I’m not sure I understood the significance of his presence on that mountain. (Reminds me of Spike’s quote from Buffy: It’s a big rock. I can’t wait to tell my friends. They don’t have a rock that big.) But whatever he does, he can do it in peace for a few days, because Superman has been shot after putting so much energy into saving Edge’s guinea pigs. As with the beginning, I can’t wait to see where the series goes next. O Mother, Where Art Thou? has some very good moments and tackles Superman in an even more intriguing way – despite borrowing the plot of the villain from Man of Steel – but it also unnecessarily complicates Clark’s story and inflicts melancholy on his parents without them realizing it, and is probably the weakest episode.

O Mother, Where Art Thou? has some very good moments and tackles Superman in an even more intriguing way – despite borrowing the plot of the villain from Man of Steel – but it also unnecessarily complicates Clark’s story and inflicts melancholy on his parents without them realizing it, and is probably the weakest episode.Like the first few episodes of the series, “O Mother, Where Art Thou?” is another really solid entry in the series. This time out, Lois and Clark are on the trail of a serial killer that preys on fathers. This episode has a lot going for it, with a good mix of action, humor, and intrigue. Best of all the episode delivers an interesting subplot that goes way beyond the typical formula. “O Mother, Where Art Thou?” should be a good way to kick off the new season..
