  1. Wonderful episode! Thanks for this! I enjoyed all three “takes” on the story, but, like you, I found the “Superboy … Lost” version to be the weakest. As an old guy, I think the George Reeves version, “Panic in the Sky” to be my favorite, probably because it was the first one I saw as a boy. Did you know that this episode was based on a story, “The Menace from the Stars!”, in World’s Finest #68, cover-dated January/February, 1954, so the TV episode, which aired on December 5, 1953, could be seen while the comic was still on the stands? Even though “Panic in the Sky” is my personal favorite, I think, objectively, the “Lois and Clark”, version, “All Shook Up”, is probably the best of the three. Aside from the production standards, and the longer story, I think Lane Smith’s Perry White is better for this story than John Hamilton’s, who was much to gruff in dealing with a Clark who was clearly in need of help.
