Supergirl 2.09 “Supergirl Lives” Top 5

Supergirl 2.09 “Supergirl Lives” Top 5

So long hiatus, and welcome back Supergirl! This week’s return sent our heroine into space, in an episode that I have heard referred to as having a ‘Doctor Who flair to it’. Being not the biggest Whovian, (I only have seen a handful of episodes, don’t hurt me!) I will let those better informed be the judge. Fans were looking forward to this one, not only due to the show’s return but being that it was directed by nerd guru, Kevin Smith. Mr. Smith has a storied history with Kryptonians,…

Supergirl 2.05 “Crossfire” Top 5

Supergirl 2.05 “Crossfire” Top 5

Supergirl was sent to Earth to watch over her cousin, but we all know that didn’t go quite as their families had planned. Because of this, Kara finds it necessary to take the Mon under her wing. That is, after she gets over her prejudice, of course. Turns out, saving the world might be a little bit easier than watching over someone who’s lived their entire adult life not having super powers. Mon’s not the only one who might get her in trouble though. It seem’s Jimmy’s had just about…

Supergirl 2.03 “Welcome To Earth” Top 5

Supergirl 2.03 “Welcome To Earth” Top 5

Fans of Wonder Woman got what they have been waiting for for decades on tonight’s Supergirl. I’m talking, of course, about the one and only Lynda Carter as President! ‘I’m With Her’ indeed! Some folks are unfortunately not on the same team. Madam President found herself under attack, which meant it was time for our friendly neighborhood D.E.O to hop into action to secure her protection.     Madam President I didn’t cry seeing a woman step off Air Force One as our Commander in Chief. YOU DID. This show…

Supergirl 2.02 “The Last Children of Krypton” Top 5

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 1.16 “Manhunter” Top 5

Supergirl 1.16 “Manhunter” Top 5

Supergirl spent a lot of time in flashback mode this week, and if you’ve heard me talk about them, you know I am not a fan.  With that being said, the writers seemed to do it right, and it was definitely awesome to get a glimpse of J’onn’s previous life while here on Earth.  Here are my Top 5 Moments! 5.)  Tsk, tsk, tsk.  Siobhan.  Kara at least had a biochemical messing with her brains, you’re just genuinely awful, and you got what was coming, which is a sassy Cat…

Supergirl 1.16 “Falling” Top 5

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.) While I’m not a fan of The View, Cat’s interview was a top moment for sure.  From ‘powerful woman’ to ‘powerful person’ distinction, all the way to her comment on having her platform means nothing if…

Supergirl 1.13 “The Girl That Was” Top 5

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 1.12 “Bizarro” Top 5

Supergirl 1.12 “Bizarro” Top 5

When they announced Bizarro would be coming to Supergirl, I was honestly surprised.  I thought we were moving a touch too quickly, but I have to say, despite the heavy handed camp in the beginning of the episode (She’s alive?  Really, Max?  Be better), I really enjoyed it!  We took a walk through the whole spectrum of emotions, from pure humanity to disgusting villainy, and it was wonderful.  Here are my Top 5 moments.  Let me know yours in the comments! 5.) You guys, you guys!  Winn made my top…

Supergirl 1.11 “Strange Visitor From Another Planet” Top 5

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 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

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 1.03 “Fight or Flight” Review

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

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…
