Supergirl 2.20 ‘City of Lost Children’

This week’s installment shifted gears into a more James-centric episode, which felt good as his presence was missed over the past few weeks. While episode twenty focused on Mr. Olsen, it was limited in how much we saw his Guardian persona. It’s no secret for any who have followed my coverage of Supergirl that I am not the biggest fan of the Guardian subplot. This week’s episode utilized James’ alter ego in an effective and emotional way that I found completely enjoyable. All the while, we are making the march…

Supergirl 2.19 ‘Alex’

This week, the appropriately titled ‘Alex’, is all about team Supergirl attempting to rescue the Danvers sister from imminent death. The episode did something that I am not fond of, although I recognize the reason.

Time for the Top 5! 5. Some Cool Visual Effects This episode was directed by Armen V. Kevorkian, the visual effects supervisor for Supergirl. As…

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…
