Season 1 of this show had problems, but the audience accepted them since people understood that all the episodes were filmed before any kind of viewer reaction. Season 2 has just been inexcusable; a slow-motion car crash viewers can see coming as they try to slog to the season finale.
To elaborate on Season 1:
My biggest narrative problem with last year was the astounding amount of time the show dedicated to false starts and endings of smaller plot events that clearly weren’t the end of the main story. Was the audience really surprised when Morgan Edge showed up at the town’s fourth “Thank You Superman” party in under twenty episodes? This, coupled with the huge number of short breaks, is probably the main reason why the show lost 60% of its viewership.
The other huge issue that this show needs to rectify soon is how it treats existing lore and how cherry-picking from certain stories makes no sense in context. Would the military continue to debate with Superman about his apolitical status after he has been established in this world for close to twenty years? Why is Superman aware of the danger of Zod despite never having met him in this universe, as the Kryptonians from season 1 are the first he has encountered? What does that name mean to him, or Lois, for that matter, who says it repeatedly? The series can’t paint with a broad brush and expect viewers to fill in holes with previous lore, because Superman canon goes in 50 different directions, the most recent of which being the nightmare world of the DCEU.
I haven’t noticed anything with regards to intersectionality or an attempt to “put Superman in his place”, but it’s a bad portent for the series when one can say certain storylines as a parody in complete contempt for the show, and then they actually become reality. That aspect alone might make this site’s audience turn on it.
