1. Superman and Lois (2021 - present)

When it was announced that The CW would be making that long-awaited Superman series starring Supergirl's Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch, we all expected a fun, light-hearted and triumphant series in the vein of the other Arrowverse shows. What we didn't expect was a cinematic, streaming-quality family drama that quickly etched itself a place among the very best live-action superhero shows of all time.

I remember watching the opening scene of Superman and Lois for the first time, seeing Hoechlin in the legendary Fleischer suit with that serene, heartfelt, triumphant score from Dan Romer playing in the background. I welled up, knowing I was going to love it; and that was before the beautiful Clark Kent and Lois Lane montage that chronicled their relationship and the family they built.

Superman and Lois is built on family, showcasing a chapter of the titular pair's relationship that hasn't been explored all that much. It sets the bar incredibly high in doing so, producing a tale that is as loving as it is epic. And trust me, it is epic.

With production values that far exceed any other show on linear television and a wonderful ensemble cast as the characters of Smallville, Superman and Lois was a surprise to everyone; and a welcome one at that. It's everything you could want from a modern day Superman story that also isn't afraid to pay tribute to its nostalgic origins. The result is a divine love letter to the characters its built on, led by career-defining performances from Hoechlin and Tulloch, who have made a wonderful case for themselves as the greatest to ever play those iconic roles.

This show is magical.
