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 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 […]

Krypton Has More Than One “Ghost in the Fire”

As predicted, having so many plotlines running on different planets makes for an overly busy episode. In the city of Kandor on Krypton, we have Lyta taking on the role of Primus, training and disciplining the military Sagitari. One of the cadets reminds her of Seg and at first, it […]

Krypton Season 2 Premiere is “Light Years From Home”

What a difference six months makes, eh? Well, not that much. Seg is still a dumb-ass and Adam is still pretty annoying. However, it has to be said that it’s gearing up to be an interesting season with plenty of possible plot-twists. First things first though. We start of in […]

Finale Puts Krypton on a Highway to “The Phantom Zone”

Thank Rao that Syfy announced Krypton’s renewal before this episode aired. With all the crazy cancellations flying around, it would’ve been too nerve-wracking not knowing if there was going to be a continuation to this story. There were a lot of big characters M.I.A. in this finale such as Jayna […]

Facing Annihilation, Krypton Holds Out “Hope”

I think the most interesting aspect of Krypton so far is the interpersonal dynamics and the implications therein. Beyond that, there are some AWESOME reveals in this penultimate episode. Right now, we have family ties being strained as Nyssa faces off against her father and Lyta finds herself caught between […]

There’s a Little Strange and a Lot to Vex in Krypton’s “Savage Day”

Heroism and Destiny are the themes to watch for as Krypton‘s first season winds towards its finale. In a cool little flashback twist, we find out where Adam Strange goes when the Zeta-Beam Device rips him out of sight. Instead of yoyo-ing him between present-day Earth and two hundred years […]

Krypton’s Heroes Assemble in “Transformation”

Stop me if you’ve heard this one: Three Zods, an El, and a Vex walk into a bar… But I’m getting ahead of myself. This is an episode about true colours. In the case of Daron, that would be coward’s yellow as he throws his own daughter under the Brainiac […]

Krypton Makes Strange Bedfellows in “Civil Wars”

So I’m obviously a little slow on the uptake these days. Despite the Commander revealing in “House of Zod” that he is Lyta’s future son, I was still taken by surprise when Adam Strange pops up and identifies him as THE General Zod from the Superman timeline. The action was […]

It’s All About Timing in Krypton’s “The Rankless Initiative”

There’s an unfortunate trend in these early episodes of Krypton where the problems seem to be piling up faster than they can be solved. Meanwhile, there are hints of more interesting relationships than what the surface would suggest. Picking up where we left off, Seg and Adam Strange take the Brainiac […]
