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 […]

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 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 […]

Krypton Underestimates the “House of Zod”

There’s something brewing in the realm of Krypton. Actually, a lot of somethings and although the series is ostensibly centred on the single remaining representative of the House of El, the other factions orbiting Seg are proving far more interesting. First and foremost, there’s Lyta Zod who escapes execution when […]

There’s a Deeper Meaning to Krypton’s “Word of Rao”

There’s a distinct change in tone this week’s offering. A declaration of love (although not to the subject concerned), insect-based torture, a political coup in the works, and the always gut-wrenching emotional-blackmail of putting a child in a position of danger. Seg is all over the place in this story. […]

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 […]

Krypton Launches Major Players in “House of El”

It shouldn’t surprise anyone that Krypton takes a classic hero’s journey approach to telling Seg’s story. Because, without a doubt, it is Seg’s story. True, Lyta gets some cool airtime (and I will discuss the change in her circumstances at the end) but ultimately she will prove to either be Seg’s […]

Krypton’s Pilot Promises a Season of Strange Adventure and Epic Drama

Kal-El, my future grandson, this is the story of the House of El. Our ending is yet to be written but this is how we began. Ours is a story of sacrifice and triumph, how the House of El led a revolution against tyranny. The story of your family isn’t […]
