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. Every so often, the writers pull back on the reins to Supergirl’s progress as a hero, at times seemingly to regression. Supergirl will make choices or say something that feels against her character, or at least stretching the limit. Ostensibly, this makes sense. Kara is still a young hero and is still learning. You can’t…

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

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 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 1.04 “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…
