    Broadcast TV Superman & Lois - Season 2 (The CW)

    How is John Henry's brain not just a mushy goop at this point? He's barely out of the hospital from a severe head injury, and now he gets a superpowered concussion here. I like that John Henry and Natalie have their own space with the old mechanic's garage, but I wish the show didn't keep them...

    Broadcast TV Superman & Lois - Season 2 (The CW)

    The ride on the bizarro Earth was even wilder than I expected, starting with the fact that the Earth and the (red) Sun are cubed. One of the key differences is that Bizarro Kal-El was evidently never raised by the Kents, so he didn't have their humility of their values. And yet, there has to be...

    Broadcast TV Superman & Lois - Season 2 (The CW)

    It helps that it has such a deep bench of characters at this point, all pretty well written and developed. Superheroes suffering a personal toll for keeping their identities secret is far from a new concept, but having three siblings dealing with keeping that secret is. On one hand, you see it...

    Broadcast TV Superman & Lois - Season 2 (The CW)

    It was gratifying that the show understood that Anderson had crossed lines that he couldn't come back from; some of the other Arrowverse shows have had a tendency to let bad people get away with doing bad things because the plot required it. Tal-Rho made a good point about Superman's trust in...

    Broadcast TV Superman & Lois - Season 2 (The CW)

    General Anderson's move at the end of this episode was catastrophically stupid, and I have trouble believing that the senior leaders of the Department of Defense would go along with it. Superman is a beloved figure around the world, and if news gets out about what Anderson has done, the United...

    Broadcast TV Superman & Lois - Season 2 (The CW)

    Tonight's episode eased a lot of my fears about the way this season is shaping up. Storylines that seemed disconnected started to converge, and the various storylines did a good job of building upon one another. I really enjoyed Sarah's quinceañera, and the pretty extreme highs and lows that...

    Broadcast TV Superman & Lois - Season 2 (The CW)

    So it looks like the "yellow mist" triggers one Kryptonian power on a temporary basis, but which power that is varies by person. The starting QB and Jonathan's girlfriend get superstrength, the girl Jonathan's girlfriend mentioned got super hearing, and Jonathan got the telescopic vision. In...

    Broadcast TV Superman & Lois - Season 2 (The CW)

    I liked this episode a lot. This show continues to find a compelling balance between the superhero stuff and the personal/local stuff. Yeah, all of the foreshadowing was definitely a red herring, but I do think what we'd seen better fits with than with . We know from the other Arrowverse shows...

    Broadcast TV Superman & Lois - Season 2 (The CW)

    Superman trusting that Tal-Rho had really been depowered was one of the first truly groan-worthy moments of stupidity on this show, which has mostly avoided the serial stupidity of the other Arrowverse shows. I did like getting more information about how the crystals work; they're basically...

    Broadcast TV Superman & Lois - Season 2 (The CW)

    Good to have this one back. The nice thing about the three month time jump is that it allowed the characters a period of normalcy. Smallville's settling back down again, even benefiting from the tourism that has resulted from last season's climactic battle, and Superman's well-publicized role...

    Broadcast TV Superman & Lois - Season 2 (The CW)

    Looking forward to the second season premiere tomorrow. The change of Superman's official slogan from "Trust, Justice, and the American Way" to "Trust Justice, and a Better Tomorrow" has been controversial, to say the least, but this show does a better job of most depictions of the character in...

    Broadcast TV Superman & Lois - Season 2 (The CW)

    The second season of the newest adventures of Superman (and family) will premiere at mid-season on the CW. Season 1 thread When we last left the Kent farm: Superman and Steel had teamed up to defeat the Kryptonian army, who had taken over the bodies of General Lane's soldiers. Lois freed her...
