First of all, being developed by Syfy, Krypton has the feel ( and special effects) of 2000s SF TV shows. More or less. Secondly, why are aliens wearing jeans?
Krypton is about Seg-El, Superman’s grandfather. Someone thought it a good idea. Marketing even promotes this guy as legendary, even though I do not think he’s that legendary at all.
A kryptonian on Krypton is a rather dull affair, which is also what the TV show kind of is. It’s counterproductive to be labeled as something related to Superman, because, well… they’re not super in any way. Not like the Man of Steel, obviously.
I only watched the first two episodes that have aired so far, and I am not sure if I am going to watch the next episodes.
Krypton may seem fascinating, but the truth is, a kryptonian is only interesting when under the influence of a yellow star. That’s my opinion.
