News & Interviews for Krypton: Season 1
It's a shame that Krypton feels the need to lean on the Superman crutch. But while those elements are a distraction, there's still plenty of weirdness to appreciate.
... the overall storyline begins to bog down rather badly in the latter hours, making Krypton seem like too much of a slog en route to a seemingly long-in-coming payoff that's already set in stone.
The show's first few episodes have a nagging inconsequential air to them, as I wonder might be the overall case if Krypton doesn't start putting its good intent toward a more innovative cause.
dense and weird enough on its own to eschew the usual superhero trappings, and surprisingly nuanced in its balance of class divide, palace intrigue and religious fanaticism.
But even if it doesn't, Krypton has already provided some great surprises and promising world-building. The titular planet may be doomed, but with the right focus, the show could actually thrive.
On paper, it sounds ridiculous. Why are we concerned with Superman's grandfather's origin story? Then you watch it...and it's just as ridiculous...Krypton is a show that will need to put in the work to earn high fantasy accolades it immediately wants.
