The Venture Spacecraft has large air intake ducts which implies it has jet engines. Jet engines don't work well beyond 100.000 feet above sea level, so it wouldn't be logical to have jets on a spacecraft intended to operate in space more than a million feet above earth. See more »

This Episode Is Why I Started Watching The Show
3 January 2018 | by sexystarwarsloverSee all my reviews

When I found out that two of my favourite actors - Tyler Hoechlin {from Teen Wolf} and Katie McGrath {from Merlin} were joining this show, I was like I must get into this show so I was ready for the season and last night I finally watched the season 2 opener and I was very impressed with how easy Tyler and Katie blended into the cast as Superman and Lena Luthor and I'm already keen for more of them. I even liked the little flirty Lena was doing with Clark in her office and Tyler and Katie looked very cute. The episode captured my attention right from the beginning picking up where the S1 finale left off and when Clark appeared on screen I was hooked even more. This version of Superman is my favourite and I'm not much into the DC universe but already he's my favourite and Clark and Kara, I'm keen for more family scenes because as he told her he'd like to know more stories of Krypton. The last five episodes of S1 were my favourites and now this one is added to the list as an awesome season opener and I'm ready for more.
