Running Neck and Neck
7 February 2015 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

There are some hilarious scenes in this episode. The gist of the story is that some archaeologist claims to have found a necklace in Tibet that makes the wearer invulnerable. A bad guy and his henchmen go to a museum at night and open crates. Whenever they find a necklace, one of the sidekicks must drink poison to see if he is protected by the jewelry. When they begin to convulse, the boss administers an antidote. Eventually, they realize that the guy who has the necklace will not be sending it to Metropolis. As usual, Lois and Jimmy get caught up in things and end up on their way to Tibet with the goons. Once their, we realize that the professor and owner of the necklace is a fraud, but Lois and Jim are potentially in danger. Clark suddenly shows up which means that he actually flew there as Superman. What to do to get the bad guys, not be connected to Superman, and rescue Jim and Lois. It's an intriguing premise.
