    My grandson told me about this evening, so I DVRed it. Didn't even know it was on.

    The accent had my viewing friend ask "So Krypton is in Australia?" (Didn't help any hearing Seg-el call people "mate".) And I was able to verbalize out-loud at least 4 times the exact words that a character response would be. Some nice production design but cliches and anachronisms pulled me out of it. I'll wait for Braniac before deciding whether to stay or bail.

    Lets hope it is more than just a "Dallas" on Krypton. (Or "Dynasty" in outer space).

    I watched the premiere episode. I generally liked it. I find the "superman" underpinnings a bit weird. I'd probably be just as happy, or more so, if it were a new property. But fine. TiVo's got a Season Pass, so we'll try it some more.

    Though I'll probably watch it streaming from the SyFy app on the AppleTV. I've realized that FIOS is heavily compressing SyFy. Streaming looks and sounds better. (sigh)

    I like it very much. Very interesting take on the Superman/House of El mythos

    The guy playing Seg-El is the Blue Steel version of Andy Samberg.

    Finally caught up and... I don't think I can continue watching the show. It's sludgy in pace and repetitive and the production design is monotonous and dreary. There's nothing compelling or hooky to interest me. Three episodes of slog is all I can take.
