I watched Superboy sporadically when it originally aired. I think it may have aired at unusual times because of syndication, like 5 p.m. on Sunday or something like that.
I still get DVDs from Netflix, so I just started watching season 1. I'm about 5 episodes in. It's a lot more poorly made than I remember, but according to the Wikipedia article they spent a lot less money on the first 13 episodes and also switches to a new studio for filming subsequent seasons. I think I must have started watching later seasons when it was better made. There's a lot of wooden acting and some amateurish filmmaking which may be a result of the budget.
The best part of the episodes I've watched so far is Stacy Haiduk. She's the best actor of the bunch and really beautiful. She has the most piercing eyes.
I don't believe I ever watched this show. I was a little too young when it originally aired, if it aired on any of the local channels. I'm a big fan of Superman and redheads, but this show doesn't pique much interest for me. Just not keen on the "Superboy" concept at all.

"I still regard Jesus Christ today as the chief focus of my perspective on God but not to the exclusion of other religious perspectives. God's reality is not bound by one manifestation of the divine in Jesus but can be found wherever people are being empowered to fight for freedom. Life-giving power for the poor and the oppressed is the primary criterion that we must use to judge the adequacy of our theology, not abstract concepts."

I was a naval officer, when the show was on and was rather busy in that period, especially for syndicated tv. I caught the Michael J Pollard Mxyzptlk episode and maybe one other. It just looked so cheaply made and lacking in the way of villains I never came back or set the VCR for it.
I do recall Comic Scene doing an article, selling the hell out of it, which was a failing of the whole Starlog group of magazines, as they promoted anything that fit their magazine, to have content. They never took a critical stance, until well after the project bombed. So, you always had to take their articles with a grain of salt as they would make the worst drek sound like a classic. In cases like this, you could see the passion behind the project, but the budget just didn't allow the vision to flourish.
Had I been a kid, who knows? I sat through the Krofft stuff rather easily and I believe I saw every episode of Inch High, Private Eye. When you are a kid, you will forgive a lot.
