Afterwards, Seg and Adam were able to Zeta Beam out of the chamber (and back to Krypton) just as Lobo regenerated, leaving the Main Man to get his revenge on Brainiac. Elsewhere, Zod decided to send Lyta in to squash the rebellion on Wegthor. And Nyssa further muddied the waters of her her life as double agent but also, got some sexy times with an old flame who is now in the Resistance.

TV Recap: Krypton (Episode 201) – A Better Tomorrow …

Krypton
“Light-Years From Home” (Episode 201)
June 12, 2019

Welcome to a new season of the fantastic Syfy original series, Krypton. A quick catch-up on what happened last year.  Last Season, on Krypton

Brainiac and the Basic Plot. Adam Strange (Shaun Sipos), a time-traveling Earthling and friend of Kal-El (better known to us as Superman), arrives on the planet Krypton with Superman’s iconic red cape in hand. Adam finds Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe), Superman’s grandfather, and tells Seg that Superman is in danger and he has to save him.  How is he in danger? Brainiac (Blake Ritson), the Collector of Worlds y’all. Brainiac is a gruesome, green, mean dude who has set his sights on Krypton and wants to change events as to ensure Superman is never born.  Seg manages to trap Brainiac in the Phantom Zone, but, whoopsies, he is sucked in as well.

Family Life Is Hard. Seg loves Lyta-Zod (Georgina Campbell) but is in an arranged marriage sitch with Nyssa-Vex (Wallis Day). Family politics and all that. Seg and Nyssa learn their child will be named Cor-Vex. Jax-Ur (Hannah Waddingham) tells Nyssa that she is a clone! *Gasp*

General Zod (Colin Salmon), yes THAT General Zod, arrives from the future with a plan to save Krypton by ruling it. Lyta has a confused how this grown man is her son but, time travel! Seg learns that General Dru-Zod is his son (and Superman’s uncle!).  After Seg and Brainiac are trapped in the Phantom Zone, Zod destroys the mechanism that controls the entrance to the Phantom Zone, thus preserving this new timeline from being tinkered with.  Sensing the power vacuum, Zod assumes rule of Krypton. The emblem on the cape Adam brought to Krypton changes from the House of El to the crest for the House of Zod.

“Kneel before Zod.”

TV Recap: Yellowstone (Episode 201) – So Much To Undo …

Yellowstone
“A Thundering” (Episode 201)
June 19, 2019

Season 1 of Yellowstone introduced us to the Dutton family, owners of the largest contiguous cattle ranch in the United States … its approximately the size of Rhode Island. Based in Montana, the Dutton Ranch is run by the family patriarch, John Dutton (Kevin Costner).  The Duttons Ranch abuts an embittered Native American reservation as well as the first National Park, Yellowstone. John has 4 adult children who serve the family and the ranch in different ways. Beth (Kelly Reilly) is a high-powered financial player who takes more of a lead role in the family’s business dealings. Kayce (Luke Grimes) is an ex-Navy SEAL with a ton of PTSD and Daddy issues. By the end of Season 1, he’s estranged from his wife, Monica (Kelsey Asbille), and returns to the ranch to live (his son stays with mom). Jamie Dutton (Wes Bentley) is a lawyer and is persuaded by the Governor to run for state Attorney General (John doesn’t particularly like this line of business for his son). In furtherance of his career, Jamie betrays the family to a reporter looking for dirt on the Duttons. Lee Dutton (Dave Annable) was murdered by his sister-in-law’s brother at the end of Episode 1 … so don’t get attached to him.

Enough about Season 1, let us ride into the fray of Season 2. Keep reading for our deep dive recap & review of the Season 2 premiere, “A Thundering” … BEWARE OF SPOILERS!!!
