Re: Krypton (Season 1 -2018)

I didn't realize how old this thread was until now. I had to change the thread title to read 2018 instead of 2015, which is when this series was suppose to come out. Anyway....

I just watched the first two episodes and I'm already hooked....because this show has a lot of potential. The Pilot and followup episode was a bit long in tooth with exposition. I get why they had to get all the information out now, but in doing so, the pacing was a bit sluggish because there was a lot of taking head shots. But I rather they get all that out now so they can really start to focus on the fun stuff. As for the story itself, I don't know if this is new canon for Superman or if it's being created specifically for the series, but I think it's a pretty good and unexpected twist in basically using the Romeo & Juliet plot with Time Travel thrown in to make this series what it is.

We all know about the Zod and El Family, just check out Superman: The Movie when General Zod is banished to the Phantom Zone by Jor-El for a quick Cliffnotes recap between the two to understand where they stand against each other. So, having Seg-El secretly romancing Lyta Zod is now and forever going to change my perception of the Zod Vs. El relationship moving forward. If you're trying to figure out who these characters are in the scope of the timeline, simply put, Seg is Superman's Great Grandfather, or more to the point the Father of Jor-El as played by Marlon Brando in the movie.

I'm definitely on board for the rest of Season 1 to see where this goes. FYI, the FX look amazing! This feels more like watching a Movie rather than a TV series. We only get one shot of Brainiac and he too looks damn good FX-wise.
