Batwoman – Season 2 Episode 14

“And Justice For All” Batwoman deals with feral zombie like drug users and prejudice in law enforcement as Alice wrestles with information that she recently gained. The returned and recast Kate Kane has so far amounted to very little beyond her being brainwashed. That in itself is inherently a bad thing because it represents a…

Batwoman – Season 2 Episode 13

“I’ll Give You A Clue” Batwoman has Sophie deal with a resurgent criminal that she was responsible for putting away some years ago with a taste for puzzles. This season has been relatively light on “villain of the week” type stories in favour of arc driven storytelling. It’s somewhat jarring to have a one shot…

Batwoman – Season 2 Episode 12

“Initiate Self Destruct” Batwoman deals with identity as the Crows close in on identifying Ryan through her blood sample, Alice questions who she is in the midst of her complex feelings for Ocean and Kate makes a reappearance. One way or another identity will always be part of a superhero story whether that be juggling…

Krypton – Season 2 Episode 10

“The Alpha and the Omega” Krypton closes out its second season with a public challenge to Zod’s authority and setup for the next phase of the show. It’s safe to say that the production team have more or less given up on the notion of Krypton serving as a prequel to the Superman mythology. It…

Krypton – Season 2 Episode 9

“Blood Moon” Krypton reunites Val and Seg as Zod aggressively steps up his plan to eradicate the rebellion by unleashing Doomsday. The promise of using Doomsday as a weapon against Zod’s enemies has been teased throughout the season and has been a significant fixture of recent episodes. Zod has devoted all of his energies into…

Krypton – Season 2 Episode 8

“Mercy” Krypton¬†introduces an important piece of Superman mythology as Zod’s impatience starts to get the best of him. Colin Salmon’s Zod is the definitive version of the character as far as I’m concerned. I’ve said it before and I will continue to say this. I’ve enjoyed every live action version of this character in one…

Krypton – Season 2 Episode 7

“Zods and Monsters” Krypton explores the origin of Doomsday as Seg and Nyssa work to deal with the immediate Brainiac problem. Doomsday is traditionally less of a character and more of a plot device. He was dreamed up to be a formidable opponent for Superman capable of killing him. Anyone that has heard of him…

Krypton – Season 2 Episode 6

“In Zod We Trust” Krypton slows things down to concentrate on how the various characters process their grief in the wake of Lyta’s death in the previous episode. I’m far from convinced that Lyta’s death is permanent but it doesn’t matter at this stage as everyone believes that she is so the episode becomes about…

Krypton – Season 2 Episode 5

“A Better Yesterday” Krypton escalates the conflict between Val’s resistance and Zod’s regime through exploring what War turns people into. One of the main key figures in terms of the progression of this Civil War is Jax-Ur; she has concluded that becoming as uncompromising as the ones they fight again is the only way to…

Krypton – Season 2 Episode 4

“Danger Close” Krypton deals with how Seg reacts to all of the changes to his homeworld as Val’s resistance movement tries to gain ground from Zod. Even though he was only away for three episodes, Seg’s return to Krypton was eagerly anticipated because of his connection to the characters involved in the major plot developments…
