Welcome back to our weekly journey through the television episodic goodness that is Supergirl which airs on Monday nights. In the offseason Supergirl changed networks, leaving CBS and joining the Arrow-verse on the network’s sister station, CW. Changes often bring turmoil to a series and this season they have added Superman to the premieres further risking the Kara character to receding back into the shadow of her cousin. After watching the first two episodes (the said two-part premiere) I was both thrilled and horrified, warmed with joy and overcome with sadness. This alone would me Supergirl a great viewing experience, but the golden lining of this series isn’t in what they give you up front but their strict adherence to thematic device. Read more...

When Supergirl aired its pilot back in September the world had no idea just how great the show would grow to be. In eighteen episodes the new CBS sci-fi working girl drama has become one of the most daring, fun and Silver Age dimension of the DCTVU. The network and audience was a perfect pairing and the attraction to longtime fans of classic tropes done in fresh and new interesting ways was not foreseen. Without question it is the best first season of the DCTVU and that includes the defunct and critically acclaimed Constantine and the new Legends of Tomorrow (though to be fair it is only ten episodes in or so).

In the last two weeks prior to this week’s Supergirl we have seen the full speed plunge into the darkest crux of the main arc for the season. We have witnessed the effects of hate and spite (unintentional with Kara and intentional with Max Lord) on an entire city and how the most important thing in a superhero’s life is trust between those they protect and the hero. But we have also seen that the catalyst for such trust is always behavior and as such bad behavior destroys the bonds that keep these trusts sacred. Read more...

In the first season of Supergirl we have seen some incredible things. We have been privy to extended moments on Krypton and at the destruction of Mars. We have learned as much as we have ever known about the House of El in a mainstream format. We have seen the birth of Red Tornado and the diabolical threat of Non. We have seen Bizarro Girl, Live Wire and the Death of Astra (in which when it began we had no idea how much we would care for her). Read more...

Once again we delve into the television adaptation of DC Comics’ Supergirl and break down the themes and devices of the writing, acting and relevance artistically. Most of all though we just have fun recapping, discussing and musing over our favorite Kryptonian TV hero. Read more...

To my knowledge the most used and beloved trope from comics is the idea that to protect the ones you love you have to lie to them or push them away. In the Superman Family it has always been a delicate balance of semantics and of heartbreak as inevitably everyone our superhero loves is pushed out of their lives “for their own protection”.

What a ride. The first season of Supergirl has been one of the best starts to any sci-fi show in history and the examples of finer ones are dwindling with each passing episode. In just 10 episodes we have seen the coming out party, an explosion of character appearances further deepening the DCTVU on multiple channels. On CBS Earth though, Kara and her friends Winn, James and yes Cat Grant even have become a team of people that through the first ten episodes are as real as our own friends and family. Each week we explore on these pages together (how lucky I am) the themes and devices of the show and where it stands in relation to the others in its own right. Read more...
