Krypton TV Show
« on: April 23, 2016, 16:18:59 PM »

Looks like the folks at SyFy have decided to give the green light to a new TV show based on the planet Krypton.  The show is, of course, titled after that planet and follows the story of the House of El.  Yep, this is the story of Superman's grandfather as he strives to restore the honor of the House of El.  So, what do you guys think?

I had completely forgotten about this and a preview was just released today for this show.  Check it out...

I watched all 10 seasons of Smallville plus many other of the "earlier" shows, but we've now been so inundated with superhero shows (and movies) the last couple of years that I've grown so very very tired of anything that "smells" like superheroes.

Well, mostly anyway ... I've liked a few of the movies - the first Captain America, Antman, Deadpool and Guardians of the Galaxy comes to mind, but I'm definitely over anything related to Batman, Superman, Thor and especially Avengers. I think I'll watch the new Spiderman movie ... but for the love of God - please spare us for another effin' origin story.

As for TV - there's simply so much good TV on these days and I've been trying to watch so much that it's gotten to a point where I rejoice when shows I'm following are cancelled. That's not good. So i've decided to cut down.

I dropped Gotham after 2 seasons and I also dropped Legends of Tomorrow when they ended they latest season recently. I've also decided to drop The Flash & Supergirl when they have finished their current seasons.

All of them has something I like ... but there's just too much and it get's pretty samey after years of the same, so I think it's pretty safe to say that I won't tune in to Krypton in the autumn. ;)

I'm beginning to feel the same way.  Instead of being disappointed that a show is ending, I'm happy about it.  Not because I'm tired of the show but because there are so many to choose from with time being limited that knowing something is ending becomes a relief.  But only if it is being ended properly.  Having it cancelled with the story left unfinished is never good.

I'm not sure I'll be watching this new show either.  Unless there are raving reviews, I may stay away.  Good thing we can stream stuff today if need be.

Has anyone been watching this?  I just started watching my recorded episodes.  I'm liking it.  Not what I expected.
