Originally enjoyed then boredom...
31 December 2018 | by dragonj-56592See all my reviews

I loved the show until episode 8, when I kinda just felt that there wasn't enough action, and it was just acting like a soap opera, it lost my attention quickly, I think what they tried to do was good, but the execution was poor, and some the plot points ended up quite cliche. I would be happy to watch this as I love the DCEU, but this was just dry.

I understand that it's cool to have an origin story to Superman, which is way better than Supergirl, but they needed to think of more plot twists. Possibly the main reason I disliked the show was because of the lack of action. I think the budget and production values are good, but they needed more set-pieces and intrigue than just relying on peoples attention spans. Maybe it's just me, but this isn't as good as other sci-fi programs I've seen. I would had rather seen another series of 'Dark Matter', another amazing show from this company than this.

I'm out on this... won't be coming back for Series 2! Scores (out of 10) Production Design= 8 Acting=6 Visual Effects=7 Script=4 Action=2
