On their wedding night, instead of make love, Lois tells Clark that she's tired and need to sleep, leaving Clark surprised. Lex Luthor has replaced the real Lois Lane with a clone, and he wants to take the real Lois away with him. When the clone discover that Clark is Superman, she wants to stay with him, and if it's needed to kill Lois for that, she will. Lois finally escapes from Lex, but she hits her head and loses her memory. Now, she believes that she's Wanda Detroit, a character of a novel she was writing two years ago. Wanda is a woman who had a bad relationship with a man named Clark, and loves a man named Kent. She's also a singer, then, Lois begins to sing in the Bibbo Bibowski's club. Now Clark, Lex and the Clone are looking for her. Luthor finds Wanda first and convinces her that he is Kent, and tells her to act like Lois and tell Clark that she doesn't love him anymore.

Episode Title: Double Jeopardy
Airs: 1996-02-18 at 08:00 PM
  • David Hiltbrand

    It is a beguiling romantic adventure.

    People Weekly Full Review
  • Matt Roush

    A lavish romp of campy romance and corny adventure that absolutely must not be taken seriously. If the plot's full of holes, they're plugged with a heedless style that makes this the season's most purely entertaining new show. [10 Sept 1993, p.3D]

    USA Today Full Review
  • Ken Tucker

    This comic-book show is the smartest, most human hour of programming that Sunday night now has to offer.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Tom Shales

    Essentially, Lois & Clark amounts to a de-tooning of the Superman story, changing it from kids' stuff to more sophisticated fare, yet retaining the beguiling sense of wonder it would be lost without. Superman, contrary to published reports, is not dead. In fact, it could be argued he has never looked better. [11 Sept 1993, p.D1]

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Howard Rosenberg

    A clever and rewarding Man of Steel remake that zooms across the airwaves faster than a speeding bullet.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Ed Bark

    Fun without being campy, poignant without being syrupy and probably too heavy on interpersonal situations to suit most of today's young male comic readers. [12 Sept 1993, p.10C]

    Dallas Morning News Full Review
  • Lon Grahnke

    Teri Hatcher is an irresistible dynamo as Lane, a reckless, career-driven loner. [9 Sept 1993, p.49]

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    For the most part, exec producer David Jacobs, director Robert Butler and writer/co-exec producer Deborah Joy LeVine succeed, bringing a fresh cleverness to the well-worn Superman mythos without trampling on its tradition. [10 Sept 1993]

    Variety Full Review
  • Miles Beller

    Good-looking, comely and honestly camp, Lois & Clark is an engagingly stylized interpretation of the Ben-Day dotted citizens of the D.C. comic, a snappy, revisionist revisit to the boldly colored cartoon world that Superman and company originally called home. [10 Sept 1993]

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • John Freeman

    A fluffy, lighthearted little romp that brings to mind "Moonlighting" in its early days. [12 Sept 1993, p.TV Week-17]

    San Diego Union-Tribune Full Review
  • Hal Boedeker

    Given the gamut of Lois' emotions, it's no wonder Teri Hatcher can't get a handle on her character. For his part, the handsome but wooden Dean Cain won't make anyone forget Christopher Reeve as the Man of Steel -- not even the scene in which the hunky former pro football player wears only a towel. He's just So-So-Man. [12 Sept 1993, p.1]

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Richard Zoglin

    Take away the levitation effects from Lois & Clark and you've got a strained knockoff of Moonlighting.
