Daily Planet Exclusive with Jay Gruska
Series composer Jay Gruska joins us to talk all things music and Superman! A singer/songwriter-turned-composer, Jay has been writing music for film and television since the 1980s and has contributed compositions to Thirtysomething, Beverly Hills 90210, Charmed, and Supernatural to name a few (check out his IMDB next time you have three hours). And in 1993, DJL and company heard in his music the same thing we’ve all heard for the past 20-odd years. Hope. His theme for the series is one of the most hopeful, exciting, positive pieces of music every to be associated with the Man of Steel, not to mention the love theme and other wonderful melodies he treated us to over the show’s run. We cannot thank Jay enough for taking the time to talk L&C with us and relive some amazing music!

I have not seen any of LOIS & CLARK since I was a child but heard that there might be some good old laffs in here - and free to boot! Normally you have to pay top dollar for that kind of thing...
Anyway, I got what I wanted and then some when I started listening. I guess I gotta watch the show now...goddangit
When the hosts actually stay on the topic at hand it’s not bad. They don’t edit out any of their extraneous stuff so it can get a little tiresome when they go off on unrelated tangents. Half the time at least one of the hosts, of not both, admit to not having paid any attention which baffles me. If you don’t want to watch then don’t. They also have a habit of getting super SJW which gets old real fast. Yes this show was made in the 90s, no certain things might not old up to today’s standards. It is what it is. Overall though this is a fairly enjoyable podcast.
Good, but Disorganized
*Since Apple and/or the podcast team doesn’t appear to want to publish my original review, I’ll just do it again.*
Long story short, this is a great rewatch podcast for the nostalgia aspect, but it’s a scattered mess that needs to be organized. Matt and Ryan don’t seem to pay attention to the episodes before reviewing them, and make frequent comments admitting they don’t know what’s going on in the plot. They go off on constant tangents, especially if there’s a guest host, and they don’t edit these out. The podcast can run up to two hours because of this. They’ve also started really laying on Social Justice Warrior rants and complaints about ‘Lois & Clark,’ which really kills the enjoyment of a campy COMIC BOOK SHOW from the early ‘90s. The manufactured outrage over everything now-days is really tiresome.
Three stars at best. Could easily be five if Matt and Ryan decide to commit their attention to the episodes, edit out the unrelated filler, and leave their PC opinions at the door to simply enjoy the harmless nostalgia.
