Supergirl 2.04 “Survivors” Top 5

The ‘stronger together’ message that keeps Supergirl refreshing came back to the forefront in tonight’s episode, ‘Survivors’. When Alex and Maggie find an alien fight club, run by the nefarious Roulette, things get a little bit punchy. Supergirl does what she can to break things up early on, but things never go quite the way the Kryptonian plans, at least not on the first run. After all, where’s the story in that? In addition to her struggles with Roulette, Kara also has her job at CatCo to think of as…

Supergirl 1.16 “Falling” Top 5

We went on adventures with red kryptonite on tonight’s Supergirl, and had a chance to see all of Kara’s deepest, darkest thoughts.  We got a few laughs and some real feels, coupled with some great alien on alien fight scenes.  Here are my Top 5 moments of the episode, tell me yours @TheGeeklyPlanet! 5.)

Today on ‘Be Careful What You Wish For’ we have Kara Danvers, realizing that being normal isn’t so great.

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 1.05 “How Does She Do It” Review

Supergirl’s 5th episode brought up a question that every woman thinks at one point or another in their lives: ‘How does she do it?’ Everyone knows that one lady in the office who is successful, has a family, and juggles both in what seems like effortless efficiency. Tonight, Kara learned what everyone inevitably does: They weren’t always so great at juggling. ‘How Does She Do It’ was actually meant to be Supergirl’s 4th episode, but due to the tragedies in France, and the terror themes in the episode, CBS decided…

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…
