Supergirl – Season 4 Episode 12

“Menagerie” Supergirl delivers a belated Valentine’s Day episode featuring a heart eating symbiotic alien, a great deal of soul searching for Alex and Nia wrestling with what comes next. This show could rarely be described as subtle and episodes like this could be used as examples of how overt the writers can be in putting…

Supergirl – Season 4 Episode 11

“Blood Memory” Supergirl continues to deal with the story of Nia’s emerging powers and explores how they affect her relationship with her family. Nia Nal has been a great addition to the world of the show thanks in no small part to Nicole Maines’ constantly engaging portrayal of her. It was revealed early on that…

Supergirl – Season 4 Episode 10

“Suspicious Minds” Supergirl returns from hiatus to explore Kara’s recent dismissal from the DEO and the impact this has on the show as a whole. Kara separating from the DEO is a massive shift for this show as she has been working with that organisation since the beginning. It offered her considerable resources and acts…

Kneel Before Pod – Fast Travelling Nanites (108)

Supergirl season 4 is about to return and Kneel Before Pod is finally getting around to having a very brief conversation about it. No time for questions on this episode but there’s discussion of racism, predictive dreams and journalists doing research. Craig can be found on this very site and Chris can also be found…

Kneel Before Pod – Electric Shelves (103)

The CW DC TV shows recently had the annual crossover with “Elseworlds” and Kneel Before Pod continued the annual tradition of covering it in the usual detail. Craig and Chris take audience questions, discuss body switching antics and answer the age old question – who’s hotter; Barry or Oliver? Craig can be found on this…

Elseworlds Part 3

The Elseworlds crossover wraps up with an evil Superman and the promise of bigger events to come in the relatively near future. I have mixed feelings about this crossover on the whole. On one hand I’ve found all three parts to be immensely entertaining but I’ve also found the storytelling problematic as it buries what…

Elseworlds Part 2

The Elseworlds crossover continues with a trip to Gotham City, the introduction of a bat themed vigilante and further development of the mounting threat. After several collective seasons of teasing the Arrowverse finally lets audiences see Gotham City while quickly explaining why neither Batman or Bruce Wayne have been seen before now. It turns our…

Elseworlds Part 1

Elseworlds; the annual DC TV crossover story begins with a -sort of- body switching plot and the promise of a large scale threat. I’ll freely admit that the crossover stories are something I look forward to every year. Even though I don’t always love the shows that participate in them I’m still fully invested in…

Supergirl – Season 4 Episode 8

“Bunker Hill” Supergirl reaches a turning point in the ongoing struggle against Agent Liberty as the mystery behind Nia is answered. This show hasn’t always done the best job connecting the various ongoing plots. Fortunately the same can’t be said about this season so far. Manchester Black’s quest for vengeance is intimately tied to the…

Supergirl – Season 4 Episode 7

“Rather the Fallen Angel” James willingly becomes the face of the Children of Liberty and Lena moves forward with her experiments that could grant Humans super powers in another racially charged episode of Supergirl. The choice in story this season means that the writers have to walk a thin line in terms of how they’re…
