Krypton – Season 2 Episode 3

“Will to Power” Krypton focuses on Seg’s internal struggle with Brainiac as Val’s resistance movement prepares for definitive action against Zod’s regime. It was inevitable that having Brainiac inside Seg’s head would lead to an internal battle for control between the two.

Krypton – Season 2 Episode 2

“Ghost in the Fire” Krypton delivers a proper introduction for Lobo as Lyta struggles to deal with Seg’s absence in really damaging ways. Lobo’s appearance in the previous episode was brief but memorable. This episode is the first proper showcase for what the character can bring to the table and it certainly doesn’t disappoint.

As such I found the whole scenario far less…

Thunderbirds Are Go – Season 2 Episode 10

“High Strung” Thunderbirds Are Go moves away from the oceans and outer space when a ship attached to a balloon finds itself heading towards disaster.

Thunderbirds Are Go – Season 2 Episode 9

“Impact” Thunderbirds Are Go takes some inspiration from Armageddon when a wayward comet threatens all life on Earth.
