Season 1 is amazing. S2 a complete waste of time. The below is a review for S2. You'll feel like your watching some 1st year screen writers develop the story. Everything is cliche, repetitive, overly dramatic, predictable. Frankly it sucked. Their are only two decent episodes the whole season. All the rest are a waste of time (literaly just ppl talking in a room). Bleh..

Pretty lame show. Looks good with them going all out on the background but the story is just dull with nothing interesting happening until the scene right before the credits(every episode). Sets up way too much for no payoff like they show and tease Doomsday halfway through season 1 just to tease him for season two. Also contradicts itself alot with how krypton is shown to made out to be this sterile order above emotion culture but everyone in the show is either angry or horny. And the final climax being being step on the X.

Take a bit of Battlestar Galactica, a bit of Star Gate, mix it around with some superhero lore = this show. It's been kind of ignored, maybe due to DC's streaming service. It's as entertaining as those first two shows I mentioned. Worth a look if you want scifi/intrigue/great production values. You don't really need to know much about the DC characters, but it does answer a lot of questions. Give it a go!
