This show definitely gets you thinking. It switches between scenes of a TV program and "real" life. For some people that back and forth may make it difficult to follow, but if you pay attention, it's very intriguing. My elderly mother would not be able to follow this show. And if you're jumping up to grab snacks, or tuck in the kids, or answering the phone, etc. you probably won't be able to follow either. You need to pay attention to the show to "get it." Personally, I love it. And I'm extremely sorry that the CW has canceled it. With some of the garbage they have on, I am truly surprised they canceled is great show.
Next month marks 80 years of Superman--and Action Comics 1000. This show seems to be mixture of all the different continuities (including the movie ones), and is actually pretty good. And they had the sense to rename Seyg-El (after co-creator J. Siegel) as Seg-El, (after an old complaint that Seyg-El sounded too much like Sieg Heil) and to cast an unknown Brit for the role--like Kit Harrington as Jon Snow. And Seg-El's wife has never been named in any continuity, leaving his love-life wide open. For scifi & fantasy lovers, SYFY is really delivering.
