Season 1
Episodes 1-26: Black and white. Considered by many fans as the best (and certainly the most serious) of the series, these noir-ish films resemble theatrical action-adventure serials and crime melodramas of the 1940s. The supporting casts are filled with established movie character actors, heightening the resemblance. Phyllis Coates, like George Reeves, was a popular lead in B features of the period. For the TV series, Reeves suggested that Coates receive equal star billing. Coates created a sharp, strong-willed Lois Lane, enterprising reporter who tries to outscoop Clark Kent. Jack Larson presents Jimmy Olsen as a Daily Planet intern always investigating the truth behind something wrong, but being caught by the villains. He usually receives help from Superman in the nick of time. Superman himself is seen as a semi-mysterious presence, unknown to many of the crooks ("Who's the guy in the circus suit?" asks a villain in "The Riddle of the Chinese Jade"). The shows are typically action-packed, gritty, and often violent storylines in which Superman fought gangsters and crime lords. There were a number of deaths both on- and off-screen.
