SYFY premiered a new series focused on the history of Superman’s alien lineage called Krypton.
The first season recently ended so Jon and I have put this podcast together to talk about the good and bad of the show.
Before we get into it, let’s talk about the premise: The series takes place about 60 – 100 years before Krypton explodes launching Superman to Earth. The central character of the story is Superman’s grandfather, Seg-El.
Seg is a fun loving young person living his best life ever on Krypton only wanting to party all night and sleep all day. He is visited by a mysterious strange called Adam Strange(er) and he tells Seg that he will be related to one of the greatest superheroes of all time but he needs to rebel against the current Kryptonian theocratic political system in order for his great grandson to survive. The rest of the show features some twists and turns revealing many familiar faces from the comics and previous movies like this dude…
Krypton is a fun ride that takes you through Krypton’s history but needs to focus more on the characters and less on the chase. We discuss the good and bad on the podcast.
