If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/12/19

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

Kyle’s Choice #1

Tonight two very different shows return to kick off new seasons.

First up, airing on both Syfy and USA Network, is the second season premiere of Krypton. In the first season, present-day Earthling Adam Strange traveled back in time to the planet Krypton to warn Seg-El – the future grandfather of Superman – of a pending attack by time-traveling super-villain Brainiac. If this Devourer of Worlds managed to destroy the planet, causing Superman to never be born, the Earth would be doomed. However, Kandor City was currently too distracted by a religious and political war that was going on – an underground rebellion known as Black Zero had formed against those in charge.

As the season came to a close, Brainiac finally arrived and started his attack on Kandor City. Dru-Zod, the future son of Lyta-Zod and Seg-El, had also traveled back in time to stop Braniac, but he had his own ulterior motives, desiring to rule over Krypton. He joined Black Zero, rising up the ranks, while awaiting Braniac’s arrival. Meanwhile, Seg-El’s grandfather Val-El, who was presumed dead, was actually alive and was rescued from the Phantom Zone by Dru-Zod; Jax-Ur revealed to Nyssa that she was in fact just a clone of the original Nyssa; and Doomsday escaped containment. During the big final showdown, Seg-El managed to trap Brainiac in the Phantom Zone, but he was pulled in as well. Dru-Zod destroyed the Phantom Zone gateway, trapping them both in there. He then seized control of Kandor City as well as most of the other Kryptonian City-States, declaring himself the leader. When Adam returned to Earth, he discovered a ruined city, with a giant statue of Zod.

The second season picks up 6 months later, as Zod continues to expand his empire. The others believe Seg-El is dead and don’t want his sacrifice to have been in vain. Even though Braniac has been stopped, the Earth still appears to be doomed. Can Adam and the resistance stop Zod’s evil plan to take over the world and fix things back to how they should be? Will they find a way to save Seg-El from the Phantom Zone? What does Nyssa’s revelation that she is a clone mean? And what does Doomsday’s escape pose another big danger? It looks like this will be another exciting season.

On tonight’s premiere, “Light-Years From Home,” Seg-El is stranded far from home, where his grandfather leads a rebellion against General Zod.

To see if Seg-El makes it home, tune in to Syfy and USA Network at 10/9c.
