Thank you for the thread.


For now, I've just watched the nine first episodes. I'm not really into superhero stories right now but I like the show. My favourite character is Winn but I also love Kara, Cat and Alex.

You are very welcome, Jeremy.  I'm glad you like the show, Jeremy.  My favorite character was Cat.  My second favorite character is probably Winn, because he's a nerdy dork, and I'm sure it's also because I love Jeremy Jordan too.  After that, I like both Kara and Alex.  Have you tried watching The Flash?

No, I never had the time. But I think there has already been a Flash crossover episode in Supergirl and there is also the second crossover in March. So, I will watch for sure two Flash episodes :amused

I also adore the crossover episodes.  It's so fun to see the characters from the 2 crossovers interact.  And Grant and Melissa are adorable on his/her own, but together, it's so great to see their adorableness multiplied.

This week, I've watched the episodes 10 to 13. A few comments : 
- For now, Toyman is my favorite Supergirl vilain. He looks like a Batman vilain : he has no super power but he's very fun. And his link to Winn is interesting too. Does he come back later ?
- It was funny to see the actors playing Marley and Ryder in another show (to play two characters with a complicated relationship, once again !). The two episodes have a Glee vibe with Kara, Adam and Maxwell.
- Episode 13 (when Kara is asleep because of the plant) was really moving. And also funny : I've loved seeing Hank working as Kara for Cat. I hope the real Hank will have a scene with Cat in the next episodes. Actually, I would love to see Cat interacting with the another characters, not only with Kara.

I liked the character development of Winn in the Toyman episode.  I don't recall if Toyman comes back later (sorry, Jeremy). 

Melissa and Blake have chemistry on screen.

I enjoyed this episode a lot.  I agree, it was moving because of Kara possibly being lost.  Yet, it also was funny, with Hank impersonating Kara.  Cat is such a fun  character (and Calista such a charismatic actor).   I agree,  I enjoy seeing Cat interact with other characters too (Winn and Jimmy Olsen, and Barry too).

By the way, I think Melissa did a very good job as Hank impersonating Kara. You really felt it was Hank and not Kara.

This week, I've watched the episodes 14 to 16 :happy face

According to me, Alex saying to Kara that she killed her aunt was a very beautiful scene and the episode 16 (Kara/Supergirl becoming a bad girl) is full of powerful moments. Melissa and the actress playing Alex are amazing.

I love Melissa and the actor who plays Alex (Chyler Leigh).   You can see as time goes on, that their acting gets even stronger.   This season, Chyler is especially really good in some very touching scenes.

I've finally catched up. I just have to watch the three episodes from other TV shows where Supergirl also appears.

So, what are your feelings about this week's episode ?

Wow, that was quick, Jeremy.  You just marathoned Supergirl!

I am caught up, except for this week.   It's been a crazy week so far, with multiple family issues/commitments occurring.   I should have time to watch this weekend. 

Have you tried watching The Flash, Jeremy?   I do like Supergirl, but  I like The Flash even more.

I will watch the episode "Invasion" where Supergirl appears and I will obviously watch the Music Meister episode but, although I have loved Barry in Supergirl, I'm not sure I could have the time to follow The Flash because there are three seasons and I've already spent some time to catch up with Supergirl... 

What make you like The Flash so much ? (Sorry if you have already explained that somewhere else).

That makes sense, Jeremy.  It takes a lot of time to go through the various seasons. 

I fell in love with The Flash in Season 1. 

Spoiler:
The writing was excellent, with so much character development of Barry, focusing on his loss of his mother when she was murdered (when he was a young boy), then the loss of his father when he was imprisoned (because law enforcement believed he murdered his wife), with a great deal of focus on how Barry's surrogate father, Joe West, took Barry in and raised him as his own son.   I love how just like Supergirl, Barry struggles with doing what is good and right, especially when it came to his mother, in terms of how going back in time to save her, would change the timeline and thus damage other people's lives in unexpected ways. Barry is a flawed character, due to the losses he suffered as a young boy, and his pain was a big focus in season 1.  But he always tries so hard to do the right thing. 


The cast is good, especially Grant Gustin, and the veteran actors of Jesse Martin (as Joe West) and Tom Cavanagh (as Harrison Wells).  Grant's acting, especially in season 1, where a lot of the focus was on character development, really impressed me in so many emotional scenes.  I find Grant Gustin to be a very charismatic actor, just like I find Darren's charisma to be extremely high.
The actor who provides a lot of comic relief, especially in season 1, was Carlos Valdes (playing Cisco Ramon) and he was very funny, with Barry also being very funny because of his nerdy awkwardness.  Carlos is also a graduate of U of Michigan, and Darren's friend, and also is part of StarKid.  The female characters didn't seem to get as much development in season 1 as the male characters, at least to me.  But over the various seasons, it seems they are trying to fill in the gaps more in terms of their character development.  I still think they need to improve on that front, though.


Season 2 and season 3 to me seemed to have lost some of the emotional impact that Season 1 had on me, with fewer emotional scenes that really touch/touched me, but I still very much enjoy watching.  The humor also seemed to diminish over the seasons, which I miss.

Thank you for your elaborated answer (I think it's not the first time I say that to you :amused). 

I'm gonna watch "Invasion" (and "Duet", of course) in the next weeks and I will give you my feelings about it.

So I watched the last 2 episodes of Supergirl.  For "Homecoming," I assumed that Kara and Alex's father was probably going to betray his daughters, in order to protect them from the evil momma Luther (don't remember her first name).  BTW, I thought that Chyler's acting as Alex, in the scene in the woods where she confronts her father, was very good.  I felt Alex's pain. 

I like that they give Winn a love interest.  I always felt they underused Jeremy Jordan.

In the last episode, I like the immigration issue the episode raised with the rounding up of the aliens to ship them somewhere. I don't remember if they mentioned what they were going to do with the aliens who they captured and were shipping off, but it didn't seem like it was going to be good.   I noticed they made sure to include children among the aliens who were rounded up, and to show that many of the aliens were simply loving families like any other family. 

One of the best scenes I can remember of the Supergirl series was the scene where Supergirl was struggling to stop the ship, with her sister Alex on the other side of the ship's window pane.  Both sisters' love for each other was so palpable, both realized it was a hard fight, with a good possibility Supergirl was going to fail and they may lose each other forever.  It was impressive acting from both Melissa and Chlyer.  I honestly was scared for a moment that they were killing off Alex's character, which I would hate since Chyler's acting has been impressive this season, and since Alex's character has received great character development this season.  It reminded me of the scene in one of the Star Trek films where Chris Pine's Captain Kirk was dying (from radiation I believe?), with Spock on the other side of the door, at a loss from saving his beloved friend.

This week's episode was quite intense, especially the space scene. I agree with what you've said, except I haven't thought Alex could die in the ship. 

I want to add that Lilian Luthor is my favourite Supergirl vilain so far. She's creepy and reminds us of some creepy real-life people or movements but she's also an handsome woman who has suffered (her man is dead, her son is in jail, she had to live with the daughter of her man's mistress...). I'm curious to see what she's gonna do in the next episodes.

And the fact Kara got fired is a good idea, imo.

I like your description of Lillian Luthor, Jeremy.

I wasn't too happy with Kara's new boss.  His character didn't really interest me much.

I love this week's episode, even without Darren's cameo. "Make Daxon great again" still makes me smile :amused

And I've also watched Invasion, the precedent Flash episode where Supergirl appears. I must say, it was a bit confusing, as I only watch one of the four shows.

I also love the episode of this week. I like how they made Sorbo evolve, without making him change his positions too easily. And the Sanvers storyline was subtle too. I'm glad they didn't go into some classical "omg, you've cheated on her, how can I be sure you won't do that to me". 

I hope the season finale will contain a big battle involving Cadmus and the Daxamites (and, why not, the president too). For example, Cadmus could help Supergirl and the DEO to protect Earth from Rhea and, at the end, step back from their manichean view.

Sorry I didn't respond earlier, Jeremy, but I just watched the episode tonight.  (I'm usually a little behind. :amused )


Good points about Sorbo and Alex's storyline. 

I'm not sure Cadmus will protect earth, but I guess we'll see . .  .  :happy face

Best line (from Winn to Mon-El):  "You finally watched Star Wars."  :laughing

Don't worry, being a little behind is usual for me too.

Well, as Cadmus pretends to protect humans from aliens...

Yeah, there was quite a lot of humor in the last episode.

I've finally got the time to watch the end of the season. As you see above, the finale gave me what I wanted. It's also very epic. It looks like a series finale.

Sorry, Jeremy, I have to admit I don't remember much about the finale.  It's been a while since I've seen it (in May?).  I remember the big fight scenes between Superman and Supergirl, and between Supergirl and Mon-El's mother.  I'm not big into fight scenes, in general.  I did think the scene where Supergirl and  Mon-El say good -bye to each other was sad.   It was nice that Alex asked Maggie to marry her.  I always welcome Calista Flockhart's return to the show as Cat.  The title of the episode was interesting, because it echoes what Mitch McConnell said about Elizabeth Warren, when Senator Warren was on the Senate floor, trying to read the letter from Coretta Scott King about Jess Sessions.  I'm guessing it has to do with how Supergirl continues to meet obstacles and hardships in her life, whether it's big, physical battles, losing her parents and her home planet, or losing her boyfriend, Mon-El.
