Supergirl 2.17 ‘Distant Sun’ Top 5

Supergirl 2.17 ‘Distant Sun’ Top 5

It’s a week after we swooned over hearing Kara’s pipes in the musical crossover episode of The Flash and things are once again lovey-dovey between Miss Danvers and Mon-El. But not everything is rainbows and bacon as a bounty was set on Kara’s head. Who is behind such a thing? Surely not Mon-El’s parents, who were so supportive of his decision to stay on Earth? If it existed, the previous sentence would be written in a sarcasm font.  But hey, with the presence of Daxam royalty comes more Teri Hatcher…

Supergirl 2.16 ‘Star-Crossed’ Top 5

Supergirl 2.16 ‘Star-Crossed’ Top 5

We had a week off from Supergirl, and I for one was chomping at the bit from the cliffhanger that they left us with. As I spoke about in my Top 5 from ‘Exodus’, the actors seen at the end of the episode eclipsed the story angle, but could you blame me? It’s difficult to not fanboy over former Lois Lane, Teri Hatcher and TV’s Hercules, Kevin Sorbo joining the Supergirl cast. But this episode was not overshadowed by these new editions with action, laughs, meta-musical moments and pseudo-irritating love…

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…

SUPERGIRL 2.14 “HOMECOMING” TOP 5

SUPERGIRL 2.14 “HOMECOMING” TOP 5

I truly love this show. It has been a symbol of hope, reverent to the core of the various characters and has been consistently on point with social issues. There is a ‘but’ on its way following those statements, which I imagine can be seen a mile away. And that was one of my main problems with last night’s episode. The ‘twist’ or the ‘big plot reveal’ was being played up as so obvious, it felt like there was no way that they were actually going to do it. Admittedly,…

SUPERGIRL 2.13 ‘MR. & MRS. MXYZPTLK’ TOP 5

SUPERGIRL 2.13 ‘MR. & MRS. MXYZPTLK’ TOP 5

Coming to us straight out of the 5th dimension, this was another episode I was excited about all week. I was quite curious as to how Mr. Mxyzptlk would be spun by the Supergirl writers, and I can say that I was not disappointed. Not only due to the fact that he interrupts a kiss happening between Kara and Mon-El, but there is no limit as to the mischief he can cause and I was pumped to see what he would do. But the episode wasn’t all fun and games,…

Supergirl 2.12 ‘Luthors’ Top 5

Supergirl 2.12 ‘Luthors’ Top 5

Now, I don’t know about you all, but I have been excited about this Supergirl episode all week! We got the Luthors! All of them! (kinda) Alongside them,  we got more Metallo and Cyborg Superman! I know, he’s Henshaw. But I will call him Cyborg Superman for reasons of nostalgia. They teased us with Lex’s suit, would we get to see more of it (and perhaps in action some time)? Plus there was additional awkward Kara/Mon-El stuff. Because we need more of that! The previous sentence would have been in…

Supergirl 2.11 “The Martian Chronicles” Top 5

Supergirl 2.11 “The Martian Chronicles” Top 5

This week in the adventures of Supergirl, we received the promised yet not welcome visitors from Mars. Valentine’s Day may be next week, but this episode was chock full of would-be romance. Thankfully, nothing reached Hallmark channel level, but situations hovered near that area a few times. Alex had hopes of Bare Naked Ladies, Kara questioned her feelings for a super bartender and we saw deeper emotions budding from our favorite martian. Oh, and then of course, there was that whole martian attack thing which was the main focus of…

Supergirl 2.10 “We Can Be Heroes” Top 5

Supergirl 2.10 “We Can Be Heroes” Top 5

We’re back for more Supergirl and also the return of Livewire! She hasn’t been seen since the immensely popular Supergirl/Flash crossover episode. Does she have anything shocking in store for us? Anyone? Shocking… get it? Nevermind. This episode also gave us another glimpse at Mars, more awkward Kara/Mon-El moments and Team Guardian steps up to the Girl of Steel.     5. SUPERGIRL VS GUARDIAN Alright, they didn’t actually fight. But the inevitable disagreement happened as Kara discovered James is the Guardian and is none too pleased about it. While the argument…

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 2.08 “Medusa” Top 5

Supergirl 2.08 “Medusa” Top 5

It’s here, it’s here! Crossover week is here! Leave it to our favorite Girl of Steel, Supergirl, to kick things off with a stunning episode. “Medusa” throws us into the story, doing its best to intertwine Kara’s struggles with what’s about to go down in the rest of the Arrowverse with their biggest crossover yet. Things kick off with Mon El vs. Cyborg Superman, and a murderspree inside the alien bar. Mixed with Alex trying to come out to her mother during the holiday and there are some side struggles…

Supergirl 2.06 “Changing” Top 5

Supergirl 2.06 “Changing” Top 5

Tonight’s episode of Supergirl was filled with moments of exploration. Kara got drunk for the first time, Alex is trying to find a way to deal with her new found orientation and how to tell her family, J’onn and M’gann are still dancing around each other, Jimmy’s anxious to get to heroing, and Mon El’s trying to figure out just what that could mean to someone like him. There was a lot of confusion, and even more hurt feelings tonight. While I don’t care for an excess of drama, it…

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 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…
