Sorry for the late review, Yojimbo. I knew this meant you couldn't double-post yours but I was a little behind my TV watching.

Krypton "Light-Years From Home"

That recap was super in-depth but I probably would have been completely lost without it.

Do you know how and why Zod took over Krypton so easily? Because the entire planet is basically filled with almost nothing but terrible people. There are a couple of good guys like Nyssa and Seg and his grandfather, but even supposed GOOD guys like Jax-Ur are destined to go rotten. Basically Krypton is a planet of aholes and all Zod had to do was declare himself the biggest one and everyone else falls in line. It amazes me what a pit Krypton is. Superman is literally the only good thing to ever come out of it. The universe was probably better off when it was destroyed. Basically, if Lobo used his s-head detector on Krypton, it would explode because the alarm would sound on almost everyone. Even that sweet nursemaid wound up a traitor. I am rooting for Adam and Seg because it means Krypton can finally be put out of its misery. The bad news is that there is more than a hundred years of this garbage coming, even if they win. It's a very hard show to see the upside of. It's basically everything dire Gotham promised but failed to be. This is a bummer series done right. Mostly because saving Superman IS the light at the end of the tunnel.

Speaking of Lobo's s-head detector, that was a quite excellent joke. A little too soon to judge Lobo yet, but I imagine it would be weird to hear him making modern pop-culture jokes a hundred years in the past. Which is kind of why I'm resisting the idea of him on this show, and endlessly curious at the same time.

For the record, betting Seg lost that fight and Brainiac infected him. There is no other possible outcome since we didn't actually witness the supposed victory, and Brainiac wouldn't go down that easily anyways. My favorite thing about his and Seg's odd-couple act was that Brainiac had a truly sensible suggestion. He fully admits that he intends to betray Seg if they team up (which is admirable) and correctly points out Seg intends to do the same if given the chance. Why not pool resources until then? Logical. Reasonable. Smart. And Seg's all, "Naaah." Let's cut to the chase. Let's not waste everybody's time on something that is an inevitability. Let's not pretend things could possibly end any other way, and let's get it over with it. The fact that Brianiac probably won does not change my opinion that Seg doing that is totally endearing. He basically rubbed other inferior shows' hero / villain team-up's faces in it. Because when it comes down to it, Seg learned his lesson. He is not going to make the mistake he made with Zod twice. Which admittedly will probably lead to a far bigger mistake for them all later on but that's a next week problem.

Couldn't tell if Seg was gonna hug Adam or punch him when he first saw him. Which was probably by design.

This show continues to impress me. The second season is off on the right foot. ****.

So there's a reboot of this old French series called Oum the White Dolphin. Found it while channel surfing and initially thought it was CGI, but no!
