I'm looking forward to this. I did not enjoy Henry Cavill Superman. I was a fan of Smallville, but I thought they dragged it out too much and towards the latter seasons the show seemed to drop its premise and was basically a Superman show without the suit. I also watched Lois and Clark and enjoyed it somewhat, but it was definitely on the corny side, and the special effects looked dated even for its time. IF this show does well, it could potentially be the first proper modern Superman show with the right tone and special effects to do it justice.

Watched it last night. I really enjoyed it. As a father with one child still at home and aging parents and a hurting economy... Even though I don't save the planet I too feel pulled in so many directions. And life is constantly up & down... And when you are in those valleys it feels insurmountable getting back out.
And the premiere touched on so many good things too. Clark having exceptional parents. Getting married. Old fashioned American values. Small town USA. Family. Doing the right thing.
So yes this version of Superman at this stage of life I can identify with right now. I hope it maintains that family focus.
