Krypton (SyFy) -- Season 2 Thread -- premieres 6/12/19





What if Superman never existed? Set two generations before the destruction of Superman's home planet, KRYPTON follows Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe), the legendary Man of Steel's grandfather, as a young man who fights to save his home planet from destruction. Season 2 brings us back to a changed Kandor, locked in a battle over its freedom and its future. General Dru-Zod (Colin Salmon) is now in control. He's on a ruthless mission to rebuild Krypton according to his ideals and to secure its future by conquering the universe. Faced with a bleak outlook, our hero, Seg-El, attempts to unite a dispersed group of resisters in an effort to defeat Zod and restore hope to their beloved planet. Their chance at redemption is threatened however, by their opposing tactics, shifting alliances and conflicting moral boundaries - forcing each of them to individually determine how far they're willing to go in pursuit of a better tomorrow.

Feels like it's been forever since S1.

Season 1 aired last Spring. Weird that SyFy chose to air season 2 in the summer instead.

It was a good 1st season. I guess I shouldn't be surprised this wasn't more popular because it airs on cable and SyFy and their shows are usually not popular discussion shows here.

The actor who plays Brainiac said in a new interview that David Goyer's plan for this show is 5-6 seasons.

I'm making it through s1 on DCU right now. I think I better pick up the pace though, not sure when they'll rotate it out.. Liking it so far.

My only real complaint about the show is that they need to stop filming every episode on the same 4 or 5 sets. It doesn't feel like an entire planet, it feels like a space station.

Otherwise, I loved S1 and can't wait for tonight

The DC service paid big bucks to keep Krypton exclusive to their service. I expect it will hang around awhile.

Show question... Do they ever explain how Adam Strange can be in Kryponian gravity? Or is he a hologram as well and I missed this fact?

Was surprised to see the introduction of Lobo in the 1st episode.

I'm not really familiar with the character, but I guess he's some kind of smart ass bounty hunter. He did look like his comic counterpart.

Some good stuff in the episode. I at the "Shithead alert" meter. I was surprised they "killed off" Brainiac or appear to have killed him off. With him being an AI, I bet he'll return in a future episode. They've depicted him as a big foe in this series.

I don't think they got lobo right at all but close enough for this show.

There is no chance Brainiac is dead. Seg wouldn’t have a prayer against him one on one. More than likely he is possessing Seg like he did the orient last season.
