    I bailed after the first season. It felt like every other CBS show with an outsider helping the police.

    A waste of Alan Cumming.

    The second (incorrectly referred to as the original*) Mystery Science Theater 3000.



    *The original series was only one season of 21 episodes. It was cancelled/not renewed due to KTMA, the station they were on, going into bankruptcy.

    Lobo had an Irish accent. It was bizzaro.
    Smallville 2001 - 2011?

    Agreed. I think I watched one or two which, aside from Alan Cumming, were entirely forgettable. I can barely even remember the plots at all. There's got to a be better vehicle for his talent than this desultory stuff.

    Having seen him as a guest on talk shows, I think he would be a magnificent host.

    It's called the Good Fight.

    Less than 10 years ago, it’s a short time to try another reboot. Especially when it’s pretty much the exact same idea.

    Krypton is set on another planet, 200 years in the past, about Seg-El, Kal-El's grandfather, and no one has superpowers. It's not the same thing?

    So the cool bit is General Zod attacks Earth circa 1819.

    James Madison is president, George III was still on the throne, and Napoeon had just been dealt with.

    Never mind.

    I never watched it, I bet a ton of people have made the same assumption.

    Everyone on Krypton has a British accent.

    You won't ever find out now that it's canceled.

    What? That would mean, of course, they ignored all the commercials for Krypton. And any articles about it on the internet.
    I never watched it, but, I new what it was about. And very specifically, that it took place on Krypton and not in Smallville... that's in the title.

    That's the Good Wife. The Good Fight is the spin-off on CBS All Access. Both are good shows, but only the former has Alan Cumming on the show regularly.

    Alan has never been on the Good Fight, so how else could I have shown an example of Alan's character that could be on the Good Fight?

    Yeah, the Good Wife is over, so I'm sure he's not going to be in more of that either.

    Alan was going to be on the Good Fight, but reversed his decision after Julianna got into a pay dispute, since they were offering her guest star money for a guest star spot, but she wanted actual star star money for coming home to the role that made her.

    7 years on ER, smooching Clooney?

    No one remembers or cares. :(

    So it takes place in the Whoniverse?

    That’s pretty much exactly what I did, never read an article or even watched a trailer. Just saw a poster, put 2 and 2 fogether and got 5. I never liked superman, he’s invincible and whiter than white, yawn.

    He's actually quiet an interesting character when written well. Which is, of course, true of every story.

    I much prefer either the Hulk or the Flash (I'm guessing you like the Flash).
