Krypton 

Review of "Krypton" 6/14/18 by Suzanne
airs Wednesdays on Syfy

I've read a lot of bad reviews of this show, but I like it. I grew up reading the Superman comics, so I love all things related to Superman. I've always enjoyed reading or seeing anything about his home planet. There were many Superman stories about life back on Krypton. The series, however, puts its own spin on things, which is fine. It reminds me a bit of Caprica.

Adam Strange, a comic book hero, appears to warn the young man, Seg-El, that his future grandson Superman is in danger. He's nothing like the Adam Strange that I remember. Young Seg-El is quite handsome and reminds us of Superman. He already lost his grandfather when he was a boy, and then he loses his parents as well. Meanwhile, he's in love with the daughter of the woman who murdered his parents. He's also betrothed to the daughter of the man who sentenced his grandfather to death. Lastly, Adam Strang warned him of the evil Brainiac coming to destroy Krypton. This all happens just in the first episode! It's a lot of story, and they do it well. I can't wait to see what happens next! So far I'm loving it. I don't know why the critics I've read don't like it. Maybe they don't like all of the changes from other Superman stories. "Smallville" taught me that each version of Superman is going to be different, and "Gotham" and other shows has further brought home that point.

SYFY GREENLIGHTS SUPERMAN PREQUEL KRYPTON TO PILOT

Press Release

May 09, 2016

NEW YORK – May 9, 2016 – Syfy today announced it has greenlit to pilot KRYPTON, the much-anticipated Superman prequel set two generations before the destruction of the legendary Man of Steel’s home planet.  KRYPTON will follow Superman’s grandfather — whose House of El was ostracized and shamed — as he fights to redeem his family’s honor and save his beloved world from chaos. 

KRYPTON will be executive produced by David S. Goyer (“Man of Steel,” “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” “The Dark Knight” trilogy) through his Phantom Four banner. Damian Kindler (“Sleepy Hollow”) will serve as executive producer/showrunner; Colm McCarthy (“She Who Brings Gifts,” “Peaky Blinders”) is set to direct and co-executive produce the pilot. The pilot teleplay and story is written by David S. Goyer & Ian Goldberg (“Once Upon a Time,” “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”). KRYPTON will be produced by Warner Horizon Television and is based on characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, published by DC Comics. 

KRYPTON is one of the most iconic stories in the comic book universe,” said Bill McGoldrick, Executive Vice President, Scripted Content, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. “In the talented hands of David S. Goyer and the DC Entertainment/Warner Horizon Television team, this exciting Syfy project will take viewers back to Superman’s home to show how the timeless legend began.”

KRYPTON comes on the heels of the pilot greenlight for PROTOTYPE, written by Tony Basgallop (“24: Live Another Day”) and currently in production. Additional high-profile scripted projects in development at Syfy include an adaptation of Aldous Huxley’s classic novel BRAVE NEW WORLD from Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television, and HYPERION, with executive producers Bradley Cooper, Graham King and Todd Phillips.

In 2016, Syfy’s powerhouse lineup includes HUNTERS, from “The Walking Dead” executive producer Gale Anne Hurd; the second season of the thriller series 12 MONKEYS; INCORPORATED, from Matt Damon, Ben Affleck & Jennifer Todd’s Pearl Street Films; the Halloween anthology series CHANNEL ZERO: CANDLE COVE; and critically-acclaimed first seasons of THE EXPANSE and THE MAGICIANS (both set for second seasons in 2017).
