Man and Teens of Steel

Started off a sunny day with oversleeping and a very quick breakfast. At least it was a nice day for a fast ride to work. It was sunny, breezy, and in the upper 50's-lower 60's by quarter of 10. Dodged some late morning traffic on the White Horse Pike and got to work just in time.

Work was a pain in the rear for the entire eight hours. You'd think people would be in a better mood on a day with such gorgeous weather. There were a lot of people who were demanding or rude, and several who wouldn't or couldn't bag. We had long lines all afternoon, too. I was often the only line open besides express. No one called out. They just didn't have enough people to assign to work in the morning and afternoon on a Wednesday. I was so happy when I got off with just enough time to shut down without a relief.

Went straight home and upstairs for a snack and Match Game '77. Richard wishes his older son Gary happy birthday in the opening, but he doesn't do as well helping a contestant with "__ Convention" in the Head-to-Head. A woman wearing unique butterfly-shaped glasses does better with "Bet On __" later.

Opted for Match Game PM and pizza for dinner. Bart Braverman happily flirted with the female contestant, but even she realized she didn't give the best answers. Brett was more nervous to help the winner with "__ Saucer" on the Head-to-Head and figure out what the dullest movie ever made was adapted from.

Finished the night after a shower with the pilot episode of Superman & Lois on HBO Max. This recent show is kind of a cross between Smallville and a less-goofy Adventures of Lois & Clark. Clark Kent (Tyler Hoechilin) takes his wife Lois Lane Kent (Elizabeth Tulloch) and their twin sons Jonathan (Jordan Elsass) and Jordan (Alex Garfin) home to Smallville after his mother dies. While the boys befriend sweet Sarah Cushing (Inde Navarette), Clark, in his Superman guise, tries to figure out who the man in the lead suit who is gathering Kryptonite is, and discovers that one of his sons may have his powers after they survive an accident that should have killed them.

I've always preferred Superman and Supergirl and their universe over the darker world of Batman, and this is no exception. Considering how long it took Lois & Clark to get those two hitched, it's interesting this version starts off with them that way. I may have to check out more of this and see where it goes.
