Review of Krypton

Wednesdays, 10:00 PM ET on Syfy

60 minutes

Years before the Superman legend we know, the House of El was shamed and ostracized. This series follows The Man of Steel's grandfather as he brings hope and equality to Krypton, turning a planet in disarray into one worthy of giving birth to the greatest Super Hero ever known.

Going on the Pilot episode.. the effects are great, the story is cheesy along with the acting. The voices of the actors.. WTF did they go with British/Australian accents..? it's cringe worthy and damn awful... it would be like making Supergirl and giving them all South African accents, it JUST DONT WORK!! I had MASSIVE hopes for this show but guess its just all been ruined with this pilot. I'll watch a few more episodes though I highly doubt i'm going to get over these accents immaterial of how good the visual effects are.

I just can't stand the accents.. it's so strong and off putting. They should go with American accents with shows like these and i'm British, just in case you're wondering.

First thing, I checked your profile to see your nationality, that's why I laughed... for me it is the opposite, I like the accents. I like British actors because in general they have theater experience, which, in-between other things, make them move in a different way. You can recognice the actor only worked on tv... so, you can be proud of your actors :)

I agree with Sylar.
I'll keep watching for a bit, but the accents really are a major turn off.

well the episodes are getting better, and I think the accents are now a little toned down, man were they strong in the first 2 episodes.

I think the accents are deliberate, for whatever it's worth. I mean, Superman, for all that he's an alien, has historically been the quintessentially American superhero. So they went with foreign accents for his foreign, alien ancestors. But I won't say whether or not the choice was a correct one.
