In episode 163 of the Man of Screen podcast, Mike Zummo continues his run through the first season of the Ilya Salking-produced “Superboy” television series with Episodes 15 and 16 of the first season.

First were going to the club, the comedy club. And would you believe it? The producers of the show were allowed to use a real comedy club in this episode. Why is that shocking? Well, the owner is portrayed as a drug kingpin and hes killing people. And its not because the comedians arent funny.

Theres actually nothing funny about this episode, but you may wonder if there is anything good in it. Or at the very least weird. So get your circular patch and prepare to “Stand Up and Get Knocked Down”.

And then, were going to get a visit. From an imp from the 5th Dimension. And hes got someone on his mind. And that someone is Lana as apparently that mischievous – and a little bit creepy – imp has his heart set on Lana. And he wants to take her home with him?

And how will she react when she has to “Meet Mr. Mxyzptlk”?

Next time: The next two Season 1 episodes, “Birdwoman of the Swamps” and “Terror from the Blue”.
