Supergirl 1×08: “Hostile Takeover”

At the end of last week’s episode, Kara had regained her powers after her battle with Red Tornado and saved the city from crisis caused by the earthquake, only to be confronted by Astra, her aunt, and two of her henchmen. Why is Emily Fields’ father attacking Supergirl?

Supergirl 1×07: “Human for a Day”

After her disastrous battle with Red Tornado, and the broken glass in Ms. Grant’s office, Kara is powerless and vulnerable. Not only can she cut herself, she’s susceptible to the common cold, the most dreadful human experience.  Continue reading

Supergirl 1×05: “Livewire”

(Due to the tragic events in Paris this weekend, CBS chose to air 1×05 instead of 1×04 this week, due to content matter.)

Thanksgiving came early for our National City crew, but the monsters are still around.

Eliza Danvers is in town to visit her daughters, making Alex’s life a living hell.

Supergirl 1×03: “Fight or Flight”

“…if I’m going to be defined, it’s going to be by my victories and my losses, no one else’s.”

Her slip up leads to unforeseen consequences: Cat Grant is going to write the Supergirl exposé and let National a City see their true, moderate version of a superhero. Continue reading

Supergirl 1×02: “Stronger Together”

“He He He, Him Him Him, I am so sick of hearing about the Man of Steel.” Wasn’t this show supposed to be about Supergirl? The repeated mention of Superman every five minutes makes me want to gauge my eye out with a fork, the only relatable trait of Cat Grant. Why would you even mention Superman and not show Henry Cavill? Continue reading

Supergirl 1×01: “Pilot”

The television show with the first female superhero lead is fantastically feministic and destroys any claim of it just being some rom-com. The show certainly has a lighter tone for the most part, but so did The Flash’s pilot episode.

Kara Zor-El was sent from Krypton too many years ago to protect her cousin, Superman. But when Krypton was destroyed, it sent a wave that threw her ship off course and plunged her into a hole for 24 years, from which she arrived on Earth 24 years later, still as her 13 year old self. And thus begins her life of normalcy, the life of Kara Danvers. Continue reading
