Supergirl 2.22 ‘Nevertheless, She Persisted’

Oh my Zod! We did it! This is it for season two of Supergirl and wow was this one chock-full of heroic goodness. As the Daxamite threat intensified, we were all waiting with baited breath as to why Superman attacked his cousin. Those of us who are savvy in this universe could rest assured that Queen Rhea was somehow influencing the Man of Steel, whether it be by magic or a form of kryptonite. While the reasoning was cleared up right in the beginning of the episode (thankfully), that was…

Supergirl 2.21 ‘Resist’

We’re almost to the end of season two and the volume has officially been turned up for the CW’s Supergirl! National City is under full attack by the Daxamite army under Queen Rhea. The streets are rife with fear as her soldiers rip through the streets, the police department and eventually the DEO itself. So while Team Supergirl establishes a resistance HQ at the alien bar, there are character reveals, unlikely (yet not surprising) alliances, and the return of a familiar face or two. This week gave me a great…

Supergirl 2.02 “The Last Children of Krypton” Top 5

Supergirl continues it’s second season with “The Last Children of Krypton”. Honestly, they didn’t even need to give me a synopsis or pictures to get me hyped for this episode. That title is quite enough. Even knowing that both Cat and Clark would be departing tonight couldn’t keep me from bouncing up and down as I prepped this Top 5. More on how those things broke my face later. For now, I want to mention that Supergirl smashed an 8 year CW Network record last week with it’s season 2…

Supergirl 1.19 “Myriad” Top 5

Supergirl has inspired from episode 1.  Here we are on episode 19, and they’re still following their trend, and that’s exactly what someone wearing the ‘S’ on their chest is supposed to do.  ‘Myriad’ was an action packed lead in for their season finale, which, frankly, I’m not even remotely ready for. 5.) That one time we got to see Superman… almost.  I love that they’ve kept Kal out of the mix, and I love that it’s all been on Kara, but that doesn’t mean I wasn’t super bummed when…

Supergirl 1.14 “Truth, Justice, and the American Way”

Supergirl continues to grow as a show, and this episode gets to the crux of what it means to be human, and what it means to be a hero. So, filling in temporarily for our fearless leader, here are my Top 5 Moments from Supergirl. Don’t forget to share yours in the comments! 5.) The New Girl I don’t like Siobhan. In fact, I kind of hate her. And that’s okay, because you’re supposed to. She’s all the catty, manipulative, condescending parts of Cat Grant without any of the brilliant, feminist,…

Supergirl 1.13 “The Girl That Was” Top 5

Supergirl has its issues, whether that be with the show itself, or the fact that it’s running in the same time slot as the X Files, but it makes up for that in spades with its truth to that S symbol.  The writers capture what it means to be a member of the House of El in such a pure way, and tonight was no exception.  Here are my Top 5 moments!  Let us know yours in the comments! 5.) Part of my love for Supergirl is that there are…

Supergirl 1.11 “Strange Visitor From Another Planet” Top 5

It was all about family tonight, and Supergirl flew straight into our hearts and brought all of the feels.  Share your top 5 moments or any of your thoughts on the episode in the comments!  In the meantime, here are our top 5 moments!   5.) Anyone else not emotionally prepared to watch the genocide of a race?  Whether you’re familiar with the comics, or this is your first introduction to J’onn, watching him retell the story of his race’s demise was heart wrenching, and seeing it was even worse.…

Supergirl 1.10 “Childish Things” Top 5

Supergirl returned from its week off with an episode filled with aliens, creepy dolls, and jerk FBI agents.  Here were my top 5 moments! 5- Though the shots he took at Lord’s character while impersonating him could have been detrimental to J’onn’s cover, it was completely hilarious, and led to a solid reason why he continues to hide his identity.   I didn’t care at all for how much Kara and Alex were pushing him through this episode, so hopefully that will ebb a bit now that he has more than…

Supergirl 1.07 “Human For A Day” Review

Today on ‘Be Careful What You Wish For’ we have Kara Danvers, realizing that being normal isn’t so great. Kryptonians losing their powers certainly isn’t unprecedented, but it’s definitely never easy to watch. Tonight’s episode took that ‘hard to watch’ to a whole new level, but not without the most important aspect of the show: Hope. Melissa Benoist brought unbelievable levels of emotion to a powerless Kara in ‘Human For A Day’ watching her fight so furiously to x-ray the dying man, to try to save him. When Jimmy came…

Supergirl 1.06 “Red Faced” Review

How do you write about an alien dealing with the day to day issues of humanity in a way that your viewers, who we can assume are mostly human, can relate to? Well, just ask the Supergirl writers. Week after week, we’ve flown with Kara through her adventures not only as Supergirl, but as a woman dealing with the everyday problems of today’s world. Supergirl is filled with action, quips, jokes, banter and romance, but their tackling of every day issues is what really makes it shine. This week dove…

Supergirl 1.04 “Livewire” Review

It’s important to note, before we delve into the bulk of tonight’s episode of Supergirl that they chose to air the season out of order in solidarity with France. What was supposed to be tonight’s episode had terrorism overtones, so CBS decided it would be best to hold off. Airing episodes out of order can be detrimental to a show in its early stages, but even with that knowledge, I appreciate what they decided to do. Now! That important bit of information aside, I thought this episode started off a…

Supergirl 1.03 “Fight or Flight” Review

“It’s about saving all of the people!” Is it weird to open up a Supergirl review with a line from Supernatural? Well, tough cookies, because here we are. ‘Fight or Flight’ brought viewers to the realization that it’s not just going to be aliens that Kara is facing. This is a world where all sorts of unfortunate circumstances can lead to all kinds of angry villains. We saw that this evening in Reactron. The world of a hero is so rarely black and white, and when it comes to jurisdiction,…

Supergirl 1.02 “Stronger Together” Review

The second episode in the long awaited Supergirl series moved us into the growing pains stages of being a hero. Not only did Kara have to deal with the fact that she is going to make mistakes, but she also got the harsh lesson that no matter how much good you do, there will always be critics. It was nice to see the writers move in this direction quickly. While these won’t be the only struggles Kara faces as Supergirl, it’s good to move past the honeymoon stage quickly instead…
