October 13, 2016: “Supergirl” Episode Review – S02E01 “The Adventures of Supergirl”

The Adventures of SupergirlSuperman Homepage reviewer T.A. Ewart (aka liheibao) reviews episodes from the “Supergirl” TV series, airing on The CW.

Check out his review of the 1st episode of Season 2 in which, when a new threat emerges in National City, Kara/Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) teams up with her cousin, Clark Kent/Superman (guest star Tyler Hoechlin), to stop it. Kara is thrilled to have family in town but it leaves Alex (Chyler Leigh) feeling a bit left out. Meanwhile, Hank (David Harewood) and Supergirl are stunned by the pod that came crashing to Earth.

The sophomore season of Supergirl begins with tying off threads from the last season, albeit without much satisfaction. The surprise in the spaceship, which was thoroughly spoiled over the summer, turned out be an unconscious lad (Mon-El!), though little was learned about him after hinging the close of season on his arrival. Jimmy “James” Olsen and Kara’s romance fizzled completely, after a full season of cat and mouse… and Cat Grant’s unsolicited advice for the lovelorn. Both decisions are understandable, as Mon-El was planned before the appearance of another character was given the green light. Kara and James, however, which started off with some appeal, were sapped of what spark they possessed by a season of indecisiveness. The fact their relationship would have been a mixed one, and that isn’t a coy reference to Terran/Kryptonian relations, appeared to weigh more heavily than the creators expected, and there was no easy way to win. Still, these criticisms aside, Supergirl is back, with a little more swagger, all of the sweetness, and best of all, Superman.
