So did anyone else give this one a try last night? I had my doubts going into it being that this is a SyFy show and at least that network's unfortunate reputation for mediocrity didn't disappoint.
I'll give the folks who created Krypton an 'A' for effort given the apparent low-budget look of the show. The sets, costumes and special effects were adequate but the story itself just seemed like a "paint-by-numbers" affair. It's clear it really, really wants to set itself up as a sort of Game of Thrones on Krypton (they even have Ian McElhinney playing a role) all while the main guy, Seg-El, is doing his best to channel Chris Pine's version of "rebel Kirk".
I might give this one a few more episodes just to see if it ventures off into something unexpectedly interesting. But otherwise I still have like a dozen other shows I've fallen way behind on so I might have to give up on this one pretty quick.
