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…

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…

Supergirl – Season 4 Episode 6

“Call to Action” Anti-alien tensions continue to escalate when the Children of Liberty manifesto is released in a Thanksgiving themed episode of Supergirl. The opening scene very much sets the tone for what turns out to be a fairly bleak episode of this show. Manchester Black shows up to defend aliens who are being attacked…

Supergirl – Season 4 Episode 5

“Parasite Lost” Supergirl continues to develop the anti-alien plot through James being branded a symbol of the movement as Kara discovers that she should look beneath the surface before coming to conclusions. Of all the plots vying for attention this week, Kara’s was by far the weakest. I’ve repeatedly mentioned that Supergirl needs to find…

Supergirl – Season 4 Episode 4

“Ahisma” Supergirl lets the supporting cast carry the episode with Kara having to take more care to protect herself from the Krytonite infused atmosphere. In real world terms, having Kara wearing a full body costume with a face obscuring helmet is a way for the production team to work around Melissa Benoist’s lack of availability…
