Sergeant Schultz Meets the Idiot King
12 February 2015 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

A con man who call himself the Dreamer begins to convince people that he can make their dreams come true. Enter a king from one of those made up countries who governs by the dreams he has and voila. After demonstrating (sort of) that he has dream powers, this guy talks the king into making him the heir to the throne and then tries to kill him by making him do incredibly dangerous things. Superman intervenes each time and the stupid king thinks it's part of the prophecy. The whole thing is quite preposterous. Lois ends up kidnapped again (no Jimmy this time). This has happened so often, she should carry an escape kit for the next time. This episode is neither funny nor clever. These late season episodes are not very good so far, but I will keep the faith as I move through them.
