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…

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 1.05 “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…

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,…
