"Krypton" Season 2, Episode 4: How Close Exactly is "Danger Close?" (SPOILER REVIEW)

"Krypton" Season 2, Episode 4: How Close Exactly is "Danger Close?" (SPOILER REVIEW)

"Danger Close" opens with a flashback of Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe) meeting Lyta-Zod (Georgina Campbell) for the first time. It's a cute meeting, with Seg stumble-swaggering his way through the encounter, and accidentally binding himself to Lyta in an ancient ritual on Krypton. It's funny seeing Cuffe clean shaven after having him sport a full beard […]


"Krypton" Season 2: It's Really Just "Hollyoaks in Space!" [OPINION]

SYFY's Superman-prequel-series-with-a-time-twist Krypton returned for a second season this week, and one thing has become pretty clear: it bears surprising similarities to the British soap opera Hollyoaks. Krypton is about Superman's grandfather Seg-El in his youth fighting against an oppressive caste system that dominates Kryptonian society. He's having a secret Romeo-and-Juliet love affair with Lyta […]

5 Things We Want to See in Krypton Season 2

It's the last day of June, and we're already starting to get casting notices from some of the shows returning for another season. Some of the series we have a rough idea of what they have planned, while others are a completely open slate. Instead of giving you what we'd like the main plot to […]

Krypton Season 1: Get Caught Up with Syfy's Video Recap Part II

Syfy has released the second part to their Krypton recap. It's fairly inclusive and gives away spoilers, but also just hits the highlights and bypasses some of the really cool character moments of the season. But hey, it's just a recap right? Spoilers ahead. It was sold as a Superman prequel series, but there is […]

Krypton Season 1: Why the Best Episode was 'Transformation'

Today we're going to take a look at the single best episode of the season in each of the superhero-related shows I cover for Bleeding Cool. These are, of course, based on my opinion, and you are welcome to disagree in the comments below. What I look for in an episode is how it moves the […]

Krypton Season 1: What Do We Think About Brainiac?

Like Black Lightning, Krypton has only one season and even fewer episodes, clocking in with just 10. But they introduced multiple Superman villains in that time and created one of their own. And in some cases it's hard to tell who are the heroes and who are the villains depending on what outcome you're looking […]

General Zod Wants You to Kneel… and Vote if You're in Ontario, Canada

If you're driving around the province of Ontario, Canada, you'll notice that in about a week you'll be asked to vote for a new Premier. And judging by the yard signs, you have four options: Progressive Conservative Party leader Doug Ford (brother of the late troubled former Toronto mayor Rob Ford), the New Democratic Party's Andrea Horwath, […]

Krypton Season 1: the Most Surprising Moment of the Season

We're now looking at the most surprising moments in the recently concluded (except for Supergirl) seasons of the big superhero shows. Each show has multiple surprise moments, some bigger than others, but I'm judging based on how much the surprise affected the series, a single character or was just out of the blue. Here we […]

Krypton Season 1: Sneak Peek at the Season Finale

The Krypton season 1 finale is this Wednesday, and if you've been following along, you know things have gotten pretty crazy with time travel and bloodlines to the point where viewers can't even be sure who to root for anymore. The show has been so much more than the basic concept seemed when it was […]

Krypton Season 1, Episode 7 Recap: Transformation

This article contains spoilers for Krypton season 1, episode 7, 'Transformation'. . . . . . The episode kicks off with the failed coup against the Voice of Rao as he reveals he is indeed Brainiac (Blake Ritson).

Krypton Season 1: Will the People of Kandor Rise Up?

Krypton did a serious about face at the end of episode five, the halfway point of the season, and made us question everything we'd been told up until that point. It also made us look at enemies as potential heroes and that the right thing to do may seem like it's very wrong. The show […]
