Melinda Houston – Sydney Morning Herald

There’s no reason why a Superman show can’t be fun and cool, while still working in the social relevance and teen-friendly melodrama that anchors the Arrowverse. Full Review

Noel Murray – Polygon

Leaden mediocrity is the main foe of Superman & Lois at its outset. Full Review

Melanie McFarland –

What is surprising is the tone and focus of their new spinoff series, Superman & Lois. This is a big, splashy two-hour premiere of a Superman series that’s first and foremost a somber family drama about reverse mortgages. Full Review | Original Score: B

Caroline Siede – AV Club

In some ways, the fact that Superman & Lois feels very different from the shows that have come before it is one of its strengths, and its inherent heartfelt sincerity brings with it a lot of promise; promise it may be able to live up to. Full Review | Original Score: B

Liz Shannon Miller – Collider

Hoechlin and Tulloch have an easy chemistry honed by years of playing these characters on The CW’s other superhero shows; a little reminiscent of Dean Cain and Teri Hatcher on the mid-1990s series Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman. Full Review

Eric Deggans – NPR

Adding a family/coming-of-age component to the Man of Steel’s mythology, the show cleverly ties into the deep roots of the franchise, at least initially proving you can go home again. Full Review

Brian Lowry –

Superman & Lois is at best a mediocre show when it’s trying to be a Superman show. And that’s probably intentional. Full Review

Dan Fienberg – Hollywood Reporter

Kudos to the new CW series “Superman & Lois” for casting Tyler Hoechlin as Clark Kent/Superman, for while Hoechlin certainly looks to be in shape, he’s built more like a smallish punt returner than an outside linebacker. Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

Richard Roeper – Chicago Sun-Times

This is the CW’s most confident DC debut ever and a new, exciting chapter for the “world’s greatest hero.” Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Zaki Hasan – San Francisco Chronicle

Superman and Lois squarely belongs to Superman, who spends enough of his time blinking at his family in handsome concern and darting around the stratosphere that he can never fully anchor his family, let alone this show. Full Review

Caroline Framke – Variety

I hope Superman & Lois lives up to its ambitions, even though I worry it’s taking on a lot. Full Review | Original Score: B

Darren Franich – Entertainment Weekly

Berlanti and Helbing have created a stand-alone universe that is easily opened up to other possibilities. Full Review
