Krypton Spares No “Mercy”

Nice one. I certainly don’t mind having my theories blown to bits when it’s done this well. We start the episode with what seems like a flashback to Lyta and Seg’s early courtship. Seg suggests that they run away from Kandor together and start a new life together in Kryptonopolis. […]

Krypton Gets Its “Zods and Monsters” Confused

Oh, for the love of Rao. I’m all for simplifying convoluted plotlines (and Krypton’s been a repeat offender of some serious kitchen-sink writing) but when they throw galaxy-sized overly-simplistic deus ex machina shenanigans into the mix, it does nothing but make it an even bigger muddle. Let’s start with the […]

One of the many joys of the Killjoys Season 5 premiere was that Pree and his Gare bear were still in each other’s orbit. Last summer, I got to sit down and chat with Thom Allison and Gavin Fox about the new season during the press day. “[As you see], […]

Krypton’s Heroes Falter While “In Zod We Trust”

Obviously, different people deal with grief in different ways. In the aftermath of Lyta’s execution, Jayna, Dev, and Seg wander the Kandor alleys in shock. Eventually, Seg screams his agony and then siphons his energy into opposing Dru-Zod’s plans and trying to make Lyta’s death “matter”. Jayna sinks into a […]

Krypton Dreams of “A Better Yesterday”

Ho-ly crap, Batman. There’s a LOT to unpack at this mid-season point. At the same time, I can appreciate that this show still manages to surprise me. In the wake of Dru-Zod’s plan to wipe out the rebel ground forces with tainted oxygenators coming to fruition, the expectation would be […]

The Devil We Know: Lucifer’s Resurrection on Netflix and What Went Right

(Spoilers if you haven’t finished watching the Netflix season yet. So, if you haven’t, stop reading and GO WATCH IT.) Oh, they should know that the Devil’s a hard one to shake. When Fox cancelled the comic-book-sourced procedural in 2018, the outpouring of love from the fans was a wonderous […]

Almost Nothing Goes as Planned with Krypton’s “Close Danger”

Best-laid plans always have the potential to go wrong. When Seg’s involved, they’re almost guaranteed to go wrong. Conversely, Dru-Zod has shown that he’s a master planner, taking control of nearly every potential variable in his systematic subjugation of the planet. Not content with two planners, Krypton also has Jayna-Zod […]

Krypton Redefines the “Will to Power”

Philosophers tell us that the “will to power” is the concept wherein the driving force of humanity is to subjugate or overcome others. This is more than sheer force or strength, it is using that greater ability for creative purposes or motivations. The various plotlines of Krypton here are elegant […]
