I watch this show every week and never miss it, along with
"DC's Legends of Tomorrow," "Arrow,"
I'm a sucker for any comic book shows or series, especially
great ones like this.. The first season is a little bit
uneven, but it gets better as it goes along. It's even
better in its second season.
Supergirl: The Complete First Season
Review by Suzanne Lanoue
reviewed the first episode of the show, I didn't like it
much. It definitely got better after that. I grew up reading
and loving Superman and Supergirl comics, so it's hard for
me to understand why they make all of these big changes.
They ditched her entire origin story, really, and just
copied Superman's. But I'm over it. I enjoy the show now,
and the many characters.
In the first season,
Calista Flockheart plays Kara's boss. She isn't around much
in the second season. Mehcad Brooks plays Jimmy Olsen, so
that was also hard to get used to. He's way too smooth and
handsome to be Jimmy. David Harewood is great as J'onn
J'onzz, Jeremy Jordan is awesome as Winn Schott, and I love
Chyler Leigh as Alex. They all get better in the
I would still not have cast
Melissa Benoist in the role, although the writing may really
be what's at fault. I think this Supergirl is too weak and
too self-doubting. Supergirl should be as strong and
confident as Superman. I know that TV and movies have
trouble with that concept, though. They always want to make
every hero have a big weakness or some kind of personality
flaw or tortured soul. I just like heroes, personally.
Anyway, it's a decent show to watch...stick with it. It has
a lot of interesting characters and subplots. Plus, we get
to see the movie Supergirl, Helen Slater, as her mom; and
the "Lois and Clark"
Superman, Dean Cain, as her dad, so that's a big plus. I
wish we could see more of them, though.
crossover episodes with "The Flash" are fabulous, and they
set us up for an even better crossover in the second season.
It's interesting to note that CBS did cancel this show...I
guess it didn't get the numbers that they had hoped. Now
their sister network The CW has it, and they've really
It's a show that's worth
watching so that you can enjoy the future seasons.
Otherwise, it's first season was definitely not as good as
all of the other superhero shows on the air.
Enjoy this DVD set and it's very good features about the
Martian Manhunter and Krypton, as well as the SDCC panel,
unaired scenes and the gag reel. I sure did...
