Supergirl – Season 3 Episode 1

“Girl of Steel” Supergirl returns for a third season and begins with a boatload of angst when Kara isolates herself from her civilian life. Kara made a very difficult choice at the end of the last season when she willingly let Mon’El leave in order to save his life. It was clear that she cared…

Kneel Before Pod – Supergirl Season 2

The DC TV Universe -sometimes referred to as the Arrowverse or the Berlantiverse- will soon return for another dose of superhero insanity. Before that happens; Kneel Before Pod just do a series of episodes on the previous seasons. First up is Supergirl where Craig and Chris do a quick round-up of their thoughts on the…

Supergirl – Season 2 Episode 22

“Nevertheless, She Persisted” Supergirl closes off season 2 with a trial by combat to decide the fate of the Earth and the return of Superman. The episode picks right up from last week with Clark attacking Kara seemingly under the control of Rhea. It turns out that he is but not in a direct sense….

Supergirl – Season 2 Episode 21

“Resist” Supergirl brings back Cat Grant and the President of the United States as Rhea’s Daxamite army occupies National City. A big issue with all of the shows in this universe is that finales feel disturbingly familiar every year. Arrow had 3 seasons in a row where the city was under siege by the villain…

Supergirl – Season 2 Episode 20

“City of Lost Children” Supergirl focusses on James who tries to find other ways to be a hero other than beating criminals up at night as Lena and Rhea’s partnership builds to a crucial point. I’ve probably pointed out how little I like the Guardian story in every review of an episode that he appears…

Supergirl – Season 2 Episode 19

“Alex” Supergirl focuses on the women as Kara and Maggie have to put their differences aside when Alex is kidnapped as leverage for a demand. This season has been inconsistent in terms of the storytelling but one thing this show gets right more than it doesn’t is the characterisation. Developing Alex from a one note…

Supergirl – Season 2 Episode 18

“Ace Reporter“ Supergirl returns from hiatus and deals with Kara’s unemployment when Lena’s old flame comes to National City. This season of Supergirl has been at its best when exploring the relationships between the characters. Katie McGrath has been a great addition to the cast as Lena Luthor and her friendship with Kara has been…

Supergirl – Season 2 Episode 5

“Crossfire” Supergirl continues developing the Alien Amnesty storyline when a group of criminals threaten National City with alien weapons. I’ve mentioned before that this show feels very different in its second season and the changes have mostly been positive. Intensifying the alien angle has been great for Supergirl on a thematic level. Even if the…

Supergirl – Season 2 Episode 4

“Survivors” Supergirl continues building the alien subculture angle with an alien fight club discovered in National City. It seems like every genre show must have a fight club episode at some point. To date The Flash and Arrow are yet to do one but Torchwood and Smallville both did this episode and now Supergirl follows…

Supergirl – Season 2 Episode 3

“Welcome to Earth” The President of the United States comes to Supergirl to pass a law that will allow aliens to live freely among humans. It has been mentioned before but it’s worth noting that the President in Supergirl is a woman which ties perfectly into the feminist and female empowerment themes that run through…
