I loved it, just…mmmm! Loved it!
Jax-Ur was a nice surprise. Pity about her eye though.
I agree with the observations on the Phantom Zone’s depiction, it is unlike any version seen before. I also felt there was a quality of haunting beauty to it. Great production design there.
Seg and Brainiac’s brief time together (so far) was entertaining. It’s always interesting to me to see characters who are bitter enemies exude civility towards one another.
Their scenes reminded me of when Superman and Lex (to name another rivalry in the Superman lexicon) are at ease and can have a conversation. They hate each other, but at times you get the impression they’d rather be sitting down and calmly working out their differences than be locked in their respective neverending battles.
I was glad to see Brainiac get his head bashed in. We know it won’t last, but every defeat of that arrogant worm is a victory worthy of celebration.
Adam’s return was fun. He and Seg reuniting felt like a reunion between brothers. Well written and acted on everyone’s part. My favorite line of Adam’s was “Hey buddy. Is it just you or is the rest of the KISS Army over there behind the-”. Pity Lobo had to cut him off as he did. You know, I bet The Main Man would like KISS. Speaking of…
LOBO!!! Oh boy, he only had a skosh of screentime, but it was good! I loved the “S***head” proximity alert device. He’s got the chain, the metal skull crotchpiece, the look and from what we saw in this episode and the preview for next week, everything else down and down pat. “Stay. Good boy.” Frag yeah!
If the talk of a Lobo series does indeed manifest into something real, I will be absolutely onboard for it in every way!
In the “Set your DVR now” preview of forthcoming episodes, Adam says off camera “You ready to get back to Krypton?”, which was then followed by him and Seg both flipping off the camera while smiling, with Adam saying “So long bitch!”. I’ll bet that’s aimed at Lobo…
Lastly, Nyssa. sigh. So, so pretty. That voice!
This week was really, really good stuff. I’m hyped for next week already! Between new comics, the Legion Book Club and Krypton, Wednesday is the Day of The Week for me.
SN: did anyone who watched on cable see that the episode was aired on USA for some reason? I wonder why that was.
