SUPERGIRL 2.15 “EXODUS” TOP 5

SUPERGIRL 2.15 “EXODUS” TOP 5

This episode came out of nowhere to be one of my favorites of this season. It had great action, solid storytelling, character development, standout moments and another exciting cliffhanger for next week. True, there is a strong argument that the episode’s cliffhanger was more exciting as a fanboy and who was in it as opposed to the plot. Regardless Supergirl succeeds in making me look forward to Mondays. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves, there is plenty to dive into for this week, including more Dean Cain, uncomfortable timely references…

The Flash 3.08 “Invasion!” Top 5

The Flash 3.08 “Invasion!” Top 5

It’s here: one of the biggest television crossovers of all time – the 4-episode “Heroes vs. Aliens” crossover among Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow. Since we have capable writers that cover all of those shows separately, I’m going to just concentrate, as usual, on The Flash. This episode begins the real arc of the crossover, when an alien species called the Dominators launches an invasion force against Earth. #5: Supergirl vs. All the Others It’s actually pretty ridiculous to call this a 4-episode crossover event. It is,…

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 2.04 “Survivors” Top 5

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 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 2.01 “The Adventures of Supergirl” Top 5

Supergirl 2.01 “The Adventures of Supergirl” Top 5

When the world is kind of falling apart, hope is what bonds us together. Through the fear, anger, and despair that can come with day to day life, hope keeps us alive. Hope that things will get better, hope that you can make a difference, hope that you can make it through whatever it is that may be getting you down that the time. No matter what you hope for, having that hope inspires and drives. It’s that hope that makes the ‘S’ that Supergirl (and her cousin) wears so…

Supergirl Finale “Better Angels” Top 5

Supergirl Finale “Better Angels” Top 5

I have raved about Supergirl nearly every episode Top 5 since the pilot, and I’m happy to say that the finale is no different.  I spent much of this episode crying happy tears.  Tears of hope.  Through little hiccups, and some rough action scenes in the beginning, the show has blossomed into a full blown, alien filled, superhero show, and if this was the end, I’m thankful for what we got.  Here were my Top 5 moments of what I hope was not the final episode of my favorite new…

Supergirl 1.19 “Myriad” Top 5

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…

The Flash 2.17 “Flash Back” Top 5

The Flash 2.17 “Flash Back” Top 5

Hey, everyone! Double Flash this week! Did you catch Amelia’s Top 5 of Monday’s Supergirl, where our beloved Scarlet Speedster guest-starred? If not, go check it out. I’ll add some thoughts to the end of this Top 5 review of Barry’s home show. In the meantime, let’s talk about my 5 points of interest for episode 2.17, “Flash Back”. Desperate to find a way to get fast enough to get back to Earth-2 and defeat Zoom, whom he now (mistakenly) believes to be his trusted friend Jay Garrick (Teddy Sears),…

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 1.13 “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 1.09 “Blood Bonds” Top 5

Supergirl 1.09 “Blood Bonds” Top 5

  5)  In “Blood Bonds” Astra did Alura’s memory right but sharing their last moments with Kara and revealing that Alura never gave up on her.  The moment between the two sisters was a great acknowledgement of how different Kryptonians can be, and a lovely highlight of the morals of the House of El.   4) I will never not cry when Clark and Kara IM.  The Supergirl writers capture him, and their message in a way that the current film franchise never has for me, and that’s over instant…
