    In my opinion, Superman & Lois is by far the best superhero show compared to all the other most recent tv shows and movies from DC and Marvel...DC did good on this one, this show is great storytelling, its a little family oriented but there's a good balance between that and the superhero action...

    I thought this episode was shaping up to be the last episode we see Edge for a while, I'm guessing now that whatever Edge did is going to be a slow process giving us a few episodes dealing with other things...Wish they would release two episodes back to back sometime, I think Legends did that a couple times during a climatic event lol...I'm not used to waiting a whole week to catch the next episode of something lol, I typically will wait and watch a series after it's done or after it's released a few seasons...

    Yeah I think Irons will be around to help when he's needed...

    After watching the episode again

    I think maybe Edge cracked the case of that device with his heat vision to open it because there was a consciousness in there that is now in Edge and whoever it is will take him over...

    You may be right, but isn't that tantamount to suicide?

    Follow-up
    He may be the back-up plan after Superman rejected Zod's consciousness. Importantly, his father told him that if he didn't do it, he'd be responsible for Krypton's extinction.

    That's very likely

    Edge is faced with a no other choice situation and his father pushed him to do it right at the end...The question remains if this is true, who is that new consciousness?...

    Good, I will look to see if Dish Network has it and if it is with the package I presently have.
    Those shows look to be worth watching.

    Superman & Lois is refreshingly entertaining with good action scenes...It leans family oriented but isn't campy about it and it's virtually free of any political or social messaging unlike many other shows these days...

    Superman & Lois E12 - 10/10

    Through the Valley of Death is the 12th episode of Superman and Lois, it's directed by Alexandra La Roche, she have been with the Arrowverse for multiple of years now and is familiar with the stories and characters. Script, acting and cinematography is top notch. The CGI and special effects were also on point, probably because of the brilliant camera work. David Ramsey returns as John Diggle who is a character he played in all the seasons of Arrow and done several of guest appearances after it's cancellation for continuation character arc which is the green lantern ring. The episode was action packed but also dramatic and full with emotion, so thankful that the writers love the material, they have created a beautiful story with this season and I'm looking forward in seeing how it ends. There were nothing negative about this episode, simply perfect and no dull moments. Superb episode.

    Well...got Disney Plus as a birthday gift so been watching Loki which is good fun....even though the plot is a bit oddball Hiddleston is fun to watch. Looking forward to all the Marvel and future projects on there.
    Also watch Superman and Lois but I have to say it's a bit cheesy and too family infused for me. And I don't see those two as a married couple at all but that's just me I suppose. The superhero aspects and special effects are ok but overall it's not top drawer for me.
    Will give Wanda Vision a go since I have it now but I hear it's even weirder and some people thought too weird.
    I miss Dr Who....one of my all time favorites....maybe they'll bring it back with a decent actor.

    Not superhero per se but really enjoy Pennyworth and The Umbrella Academy...also find Discovery of Witches to be interesting..but needs less romance. Also recommend His Dark Materials from the novels by Pullman.

    Okay, I watched it. (No new ep until August 10, by the way.) It was largely an exploration of the social and emotional aftermath of the previous events. But at the end,
    Morgan Edge/Tal-Rho has become the living Eradicator, and is no longer vulnerable to kryptonite!

    Episode 13 was pretty good, like the way Irons and Superman work together...I wonder why Superman doesn't ever go that close to the sun to recharge...

    I also liked it, but I consider most of them, especially Lois, to be very wrong about kryptonite. Kryptonite weapons are very necessary, not just in case Superman were to go rogue, but the possible danger of other dangerous Krptonians showing up. Which literally happened already! And you don't want the supply to be under the control of a single individual. What if he goes rogue, or just has a heart attack?! For a similar reason, there should be several dispersed stockpiles and reaction teams.
