Having not learned from Caprica SyFy returns to prequel-land with Krypton :

Syfy, David Goyer Developing Superman Origin Story 'Krypton' - The Hollywood Reporter

Actually Caprica got damn good towards the end, it was just marketed terribly and had a crappy first half of a season during the "we're too cool for genre TV" era of leadership at Universal.

This could be either very interesting or incredibly terrible. I wonder if it will tie into the CBS Supergirl series at all? Although unlike CBS and CW there is no commonality between the shows here save for Warner Bros themselves.

Syfy developing Superman prequel | EW.com

The world of Superman is headed back to TV. A Superman prequel series called Krypton from Man of Steel writer David S. Goyer has landed in development at Syfy.

Here?s the pitch: ?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.?

This sounds horrible. They are basically doing Superman version of Gotham, but without all the iconic characters that make Gotham worth watching.

Pass. The only version of Krypton we've seen that has been interesting was in Man of Steel. Imagine them trying to do that on a SyFy budget.

Krypton is just about the least needed part of the superman mythos. Just make a superman show for fucks sake.

I actually think it had more potential than Gotham because it is far more removed from the 'main' story and its characters. There would be less need to drop in characters every episode like they do in Gotham. That said, prequels rarely work, so there's a much higher chance it will be a failure.

Unless they were to actually get Russell Crowe and Michael Fucking Shannon to be in this show, it definitely sounds like shit. And that is not going to ever happen.

The original thread title wasn't in all caps. Clearly, this thread is more important.

Surprisingly good production values for what this is. Been hearing about this show for awhile now but was never gonna give it a shot. Stupid prequel probably filled with Superman teases that will never amount to anything. Following people trying to save a planet that can't be saved. It's all so meh.

But then SyFy made The Expanse and The Magicians. Both of which I enjoy the fuck out off so I guess I'll give this a shot.

We know that everyone dies at the end so what's the point?

Sounds like Sony's Aunt May Spiderman spinoff.

I really can't see giving a crap about a guy who is "out to save the planet" when the damn thing blows up anyhow.
