Superman Homepage reviewer T.A. Ewart (aka liheibao) reviews episodes from the “Supergirl” TV series, airing on The CW.
Check out his review of the 2nd episode of Season 2 in which CADMUS attacks National City with a kryptonite powered villain who ends up seriously hurting Supergirl (Melissa Benoist). Superman (guest star Tyler Hoechlin) blames Hank (David Harewood) because the kryptonite was stolen from the DEO. Meanwhile, Kara’s first day at her new job doesn’t go as planned after she meets her new boss, Snapper Carr (guest star Ian Gomez).
Supergirl and Superman adventuring together is like a most wished for thing, that one has wanted unknowingly. The interplay between the actors makes it seem as if they’ve known each other for years, and this is the first time viewers have seen them on-screen. Benoist and Hoechlin have excellent chemistry for the roles they play, which is that of two people who enjoy spending time together. Why would they not? Superman and Supergirl, for all the connections that they make to the world around them, are still beings quite above the common. However, not with each other. It’s akin to talking shop with someone of the same discipline, someone who enjoys the same hobby – there is a knowledge and connection that is made and that can only be made because of the kinship that is made through the shared love of the shared knowledge. That increases exponentially when it is family, and as the title clues in, these are the last children of Krypton.
