Syfy where all good ideas go to die.
I'm sorry but this show is much better than rest of DC's 13-years-old-drama super hero shows on cw.
Terrible. Seen reality shows better scripted than this piece of garbageedited after episode 7:I think that the connection to the Superman franchise is pulling the show down. If this was a generic Sci Fi show I would give it passing grade.
The story needs to ne pushed forward to another level. The kripton civilization is supposed to be much advanced than ours. They are more developed technologically but socially & humanly they are way underdeveloped. It's a real contradiction. They are governed by a medieval tyrannical rule. We don't see the role of media at all. How did they dare to execute a famous scientist without verifying his claims? It was too odd. I hope just that the scenarists will find a plausible explanation. Like a possible corruption of some members of the ruling council for some reasons. The geopolitical plot was not well made. I really wanted have a zoomed glimpse on krypton but I wasn't really satisfied. They could've done better. In spite of this the story has a great potential if they know how to retrieve it...
Is this really rated Y-7? Intended entirely for children?
I'm "cool" with a second season. I'll call this a warm-up. Gotta do better next season.
Good concept that needs better writing. Too predictable.
Had potential even though it was abit slow, but the inclusion of Braniac, Lobo and Doomsday made the show interesting. Too bad it was cancelled as I wanted to see where this was going. 6/10
Just got the "axe". Has been canceled. No Lobo spinoff...
@SwissSenna : Almost all actors are british... See distribution...
Why are they talking with british accent? Should this make them seem more sophisticated?
Unfortunately, much of the acting is overdone; the males, chiefly, and Colin Salmon in particular. However, Georgina Campbell and Wallis Day rock, so much can be forgiven. There is a Shakespearean drama feel from some of the actors, not really helped by the script, that don't quite harmonize with the more relaxed style of the younger cast members. Noteworthy, despite the fleeting moment we have to appreciate his talent, was Dublin-born Emmet, J. Scanlon as "Lobo", a completely psychopathic but very funny galactic bounty hunter who has the disturbing quality of seeming to be pretty much "unkillable." (which some academics may say is not a word but is the only one that fits the character).
This serie is a TOTALLY WASTE OF TIME.
It's not that it's entirely bad, its just totally forgettable. The characters are shallow and predictable, the acting barely passable, the twist at the end of season 1 just a reason to try for a second season. I, for one, wouldn't care one way or another if that show was canceled. I'd kept it on the side to binge it when I'd nothing else readily watchable and that's what it's worth, something to watch when there's nothing to watch :)
Actually i find this a really great show. It has a lot of twists who makes it very interessting.
