Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that newcomers to Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman will find the show a little campy, thanks to some corny plots and the passage of nearly two decades since its start, but overall it's fine to share this fun series with older tweens. Expect a lot of peril and violence -- mostly in the form of clashes with supervillains or human catastrophes like fires and explosions -- as well as storylines that touch on murder, kidnapping, and other potentially worrisome topics. Language is minimal, and sexual content is light compared to that of today's prime time options.
Sometimes women use their appeal to distract or influence men, and there are some mild implications of sexuality. A developing romance between Lois and Clark is central to the show's plot and its appeal, but by today's standards, their relationship is notably un-sexy. On Lois's side, there's more banter than flirting, at least in the beginning stages. Clark makes some obvious attempts to turn her head, but they're all very modest. Later episodes see their relationship develop, so there's some physical closeness (kissing, hugging) but still no sex.
Peril and mayhem plague the citizens of Metropolis, from gas leaks and traffic accidents to building fires and explosions. Hostage situations, murder (bodies are shown but not the act itself), fistfights, weapon use (guns, knives, etc.) exist as well, but the violence isn't gratuitous. Predictably, the heroes always manage to emerge unscathed, but some bystanders aren't as lucky.
"Damn" and "hell" occasionally.
Strong family relationships and self-esteem play a role in the show as they relate to Clark's attempts to maintain his dual identity. Good and evil are clearly defined, even when the villains' true intentions aren't apparent to everyone.
The series is based on the Superman comics and character, which have spawned multiple movies and TV shows.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Adults drink wine and champagne in social settings and at meals, but it rarely plays a major part in the story.
