Krypton Second and Final Season Hits Shelves Tuesday

GameStop, Inc.

Krypton had a lot going against it when the series was first announced. It was a show about Superman’s grandfather Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe) after all. The guy was under a red sun. He had no super powers. He had no Mid-Western values. He was even though to be too short to be apart of the House of El by some audience members. Hell, Adam Strange has a huge role in the series. However, with all that pessimism.  Krypton season one aired and caught the attention of audiences warranting a second season.

We found out that Superman’s greatest enemy as also his uncle, General Zod. We saw a loving relationship between a grandfather towards his grandson and we saw the struggles of honoring your duty versus following your heart could do to a whole privileged class of people.

In fact, we got everything we wanted in season one that we wanted from the film Man of Steel. We were gifted not only Brainiac but Doomsday as well! So, what happened in season two that had audiences turn on the series? Well for me, it was Lobo. As wonderful as an actor that Emmett J. Scanlan is, an Irish, space pirate is not what we wanted from the, “Main Man.” Frankly, I struggled through the first four episodes trying to figure out where the story was going and more so, wanted to pick a fight at a soccer game every time our smaller in stature Space Biker Bounty Hunter appeared. He came across more as Mister Mxyzptlk, than a savage threat. Yes, he absolutely killed people, but in a more comedic way than expect.

Damian Kindler is quickly becoming the king of comic book adaptations with his next project being the Steve Niles’ October Faction (originally published in 2015 at IDW Publishing) over at Netflix and had done a wonderful job with Sleepy Hollow. Unfortunately, fandom is fickle and unlike his previous work with say Stargate SG-1, Krypton was not given the proper amount of time to build an audience to warrant a third season.

Luckily, fans can enjoy both seasons aka “the complete series” for $54.97 on Blu-ray and $44.98 on DVD. The two disc, 10 episode series is delivered in 1080p Full HD Video with DTS-HD Master Audio for English 5.1. There are two bonus features entitled, The Fate of Superman and Villains: Modes of Persuasion, that are always exciting to watch. In fact, I spend more time watching the bonus features than the movies or series I end up reviewing when the home entertainment release is sent out for review.

Krypton arrives on Blu-ray and DVD Tuesday, January 14, 2020 and is definitely worth the watch at least once.

  • Total Score
2.5

Summary

Krypton started with a bang and ended with a fizzle. If only the show had one more season to really get heads to turn, then we could have really seen what Superman’s grandfather could have done to save his home planet.
