A great first season that improves over the season
8 October 2018 | by alindsay-alSee all my reviews

I have just finished the first season of Krypton and as a big DC Comic fan I had interest in this show as it shows a setting we don't have much experience with. This was a great first season that helped build this mythos that can be improved even more in future seasons. The premise of the season sees Superman's Grandfather Seg-El having to deal with life as a refugee on Krypton, until he receives a message from the future that gives him a purpose. Cameron Cruffe plays Seg-El and he does a good job. At first I thought he came across as quite stoic but as the season progressed I became more invested in his character and I really liked his progression as a character over the season. The supporting cast is also really good, the standout in my opinion was former Arrow actor Colin Salmon in a role I will not spoil if you do not already know. He has a really interesting dynamic on the show and I liked how his character interacted with the other characters. Georgina Campbell plays Lyta-Zod and she does a good job in her role, similar to Seg her character is quite bland at first but she grows well over the season with some intriguing twists and turns involved. Shaun Sipos plays Adam Strange and his character was a nice change up from the rest of the cast, his journey is an important one and it shows that this b-list character can be well done if given the chance. Ann Ogbomo plays Jayna-Zod and she had some time and effort put into her character that made her interesting and her dynamic with Lyta is a highlight of the season. Braniac is the main villain of the first season and even though he doesn't have much screen time he was always a presence and in the back of each characters mind. When he does turn up his look is fantastic, like it has been ripped directly from the comic books. The story of the show is very intriguing and unique, seeing these different story arcs coming together comes across very well. It keeps the show moving in different directions that makes each episode a must watch. The script has some decent drama in it that makes you care about the characters and the plight that they are in. However, there are time where it comes across as a bit forced and the elements of humor really don't come across well and feel out of place. The style of the show is grand in scope, the CGI for the citys is fantastic and way more then i expected for a tv show. But they really need to improve the quality of the action scenes for next season, there are just too many cuts in the fight scenes and usually the lighting makes it difficult to understand what is going on. Overall this is a very impressive first season of this show which should be seen by DC fans and casuals alike as it has things for everybody.
