sushi Superman
5 September 2011 | by arel_1See all my reviews

This is one you have to watch with the time frame in mind. It started out as a Japanese TV series back in the days when George Reeves was playing Superman, and is of comparable quality. I also find it reminiscent of early Doctor Who in some ways, notably the council of extraterrestrials at the beginning.

I find it strange that Ken Utsui doesn't like to talk about having starred in this. He certainly has nothing to be ashamed of, not in his acting or his athletics! He was a fine-looking young man in the 1950s, and did a good job of playing a superhero (including keeping in shape for the role, which I seem to recall a certain Mr. Shatner having had problems with a decade later!)
