In episode 40 of The Man of Screen podcast, it’s the penultimate episode of Mike Zummo’s coverage of the second season of The Adventures of Superman.

First, Jimmy is going to house sit at his mother’s deaf friend’s apartment while his mother is away. Putting aside why Jimmy isn’t housesitting his own place, what are they mysterious noises Jimmy is hearing?

What’s with the guy with the scar? Why is the man at the bus stop wearing huge glasses?

But is any of it really happening? Or has Jimmy cried “wolf” once too often?

Come, meet the “Lady in Black”.

Then, let’s go to the auction and feel the stupid as a scientist plops down big bucks on a box with unknown contents that may be cursed.

But do you believe in curses? Even if you don’t, the box will still take you out. And if someone tells you not to open the box, what will you do?

You’re going to open the box, aren’t you?

Maybe you just want to check out the “Star of Fate”

In episode 39 of the Man of Screen podcast, Mike Zummo will be on his own to discuss two more episodes in the march toward the end of season 2.

First, we’re going to take a trip onto the high seas – or at the very least Metropolis Harbor to visit a scavenger ship. But not all is as it seems.

What does Jimmy learn from a message in a bottle? What’s up with the captain? And will he please stop singing that song?

How does Clark get on the boat and in what way does he endanger his secret identity needlessly.

Find out when our heroes visit “The Golden Vulture”.

Then, it’s Perry White’s worst nightmare: Jimmy Olsen is in charge of the Daily Planet for 24 hours. What kind of scheme does the boy cub editor dream up to catch a criminal?

How old are these boys? Why is the boy police chief wielding a gun?

Find out why the Boys Day Program might be a silly idea in “Jimmy Olsen, Boy Editor”.

In episode 38 of the Man of Screen podcast, Mike Zummo will welcome back Bob Fisher for two solid episodes of The Adventures of Superman

First, Perry White is going to show the younguns how it’s done when he investigates a man in a diving suit shot outside the Daily Planet building.

What did he tell the chief? Why was he wearing a diving suit miles from water? What are the two sets of criminals up to?

And furthermore, what is Jimmy going to do with that goldfish.

The boys will discuss the Daily Planet’s steamed editor in “Perry White’s Scoop”.

Then, it’s time for some drone strikes. What will happen when captains of transportation are attacked and then threatened? Who is the mysterious wrecker? What does he want? What will he do to get it?

And why are the Daily Planet reporters going to the carnival in the middle of an investigation.

Will they learn to “Beware the Wrecker”?

In episode 37 of the Man of Screen podcast, Mike Zummo will welcome back Bob Fisher for a mixed bag of Adventures of Superman’s episodes.

First, they will cover a coming-of-age story as a criminal’s nephew finds himself on his own after his uncle is captured by Superman.

What damage has this done to the boy’s psyche? What will he do on his uncle’s behalf? Can he go straight? And what effect is all this having on young Jimmy Olsen?

Mike and Bob will introduce you to Frankie, “The Boy Who Hated Superman.”

And then, your sides will split as the guys tackle a Jimmy Olsen comic come to life on the screen.

Find out what “bit of business” Jack Larson talked this episode’s director into and how much of a Humphrey Bogart/James Cagney impersonation could Jack Larson really do?

All this, rotten chimneys and George Reeves exudes nothing but sheer POWER!!!!!

Come meet, the “Semi-Private Eye.”

In episode 36 of the Man of Screen podcast, Mike Zummo will cover the next two episodes of The Adventures of Superman.

First, meet Tony. Tony tells stories. No one believes Tony’s stories. Tony is paying mobsters protection money.

Lois goes somewhere. No one knows where. What does Tony know?

Jimmy is in love. Jimmy knows not how to pursue it.

And what is going on with “My Friend, Superman.”

Then, everyone loves a good clown. Unless you’re afraid of clowns. Then you don’t find them very funny. Lois and Clark ask for a funny clown to help them raise some money.

But what do they get? A clown that isn’t very funny.

Why does Clark suddenly need a sandwich in the middle of a telethon?

All that and which clown is “The Clown Who Cried”?

In episode 8 of The Man of Screen Extra, Mike Zummo will be joined by Scott McGregor of the Two True Freaks Podcast Network and his oldest friend, Tom Benya for a look at Superman’s appearance in the first two episodes of Supergirl’s second season.

What did the guys think of Tyler Hoechlin’s portrayal? Did they love it? Was the threat they faced worthy of both of them? Was it worth having Superman on Supergirl ‘s show?

You’ll just have to listen to the episode to find out.

They’ll also discuss other things, too, such as Super-bowel movements, and whether it really is smart to punch a man you unsuccessfully shot at.

Then, after all that, there will be listener comments.

In episode 35 of the Man of Screen podcast, Mike Zummo will cover the next two episodes of The Adventures of Superman.

First a washed-up down-on-his-luck former criminal will discover a machine that could figure out every detail and help him restore his reputation and commit the perfect crime. All he needs from help is a tall and slender, whiny-voiced ……. Pooh Bear?

Nope, it’s just Uncle Oscar, and he invented “The Machine That Could Plot Crimes”.

Then it’s off to Zinaya, where we encounter missing diamonds, primitive tribesmen and an expedition to find some medicine. But what did his wife do to make the “friendly” natives turn on him?

And what famous explorer did Jimmy’s scout-mates name him after? And were they serious?

What exactly are the natives afraid of?

Find out when Superman squares off with the “Jungle Devil”.

In episode 34 of the Man of Screen podcast, Mike Zummo will have Bob Fisher in the house to cover one solid episode of The Adventures of Superman, and another that could be the best of the series. At least Mike thinks so.

First, meet Marty Mitchell. Or is it Canfield? Or is it Mitchell pretending to be Canfield. He claims he has had his fingerprints changed. But is that possible?

And find out what clue Jimmy uses to deduce who Superman really is. And find out the second-hand store that will willingly overcharge Superman for a pair of used pants.

For the answers, come meet, “The Man in the Lead Mask.”

Then, a meteor is going to threaten Earth and only Superman can stop it. Or can he?

There will be amnesia, happy Perry – at least for a few minutes – and a first look at Jimmy’s new career as a Home Health Aide. I mean, someone has to drag naked Clark into bed.

Plus, we will find out what important lesson Superman learned from a previous episode.

So point your favorite podcatcher, up and check out the “Panic in the Sky.”

In episode 33 of the Man of Screen podcast, Mike Zummo the show will go to the dogs as we reach one of Mike’s least favorite episodes of the show and then cap things off with one of his favorites.

First, you will get to meet Corky, a dog that needed to be rescued from a well. Hank hates him and wants to get rid of him, Joyce loves him, so what happens when the dog shows up randomly at Clark Kent’s office. Or is it random?

Follow the sniffs, the licks and perhaps the dumbest attempt to uncover Superman’s secret identity. Plus, find out why Superman is laughing at the dog catcher.

Come meet, “The Dog Who Knew Superman.”

And then, George Reeves will pull double duty as both Superman and a robber as a criminal seeks to frame the Man of Steel in hopes of a multi-million dollar pay day.

Discover the confusion and find out if Superman really does walk in his sleep?  What does it take to be Superman?

Does it take more than “The Face and the Voice”?

In episode 32 of the Man of Screen podcast, Mike Zummo will welcome back Bob Fisher to look at two solid episodes of the The Adventures of Superman.

First, Superman will become radioactive after he stops a nuclear reactor from going critical. And in a completely unrelated note, a flamboyant PR man is trying to get some publicity for the arrival of his country’s crown jewels in Metropolis.

But does he have sinister motives? How will Superman shake off the radiation that is causing him to glow in the dark? And how many flowers must he kill before he thinks to turn off the light.

So come with us and visit an old familiar cabin in “Superman in Exile.”

Then it’s time for a ghost story in an episode that aired around Halloween. Brockhurst the magician is telling people he hates he will return to kill them after he has been dead five years.

Come meet, Sir Arthur, Rocker, who wears a seriously bad-looking moustache, and Inspector Farrington, who sets off a debate between Bob and Mike over a very important question. Is Farrington a “dumbass.”

So, is it a real threat, or is it just “A Ghost for Scotland Yard”?
