"Supergirl" Episode Reviews

Supergirl In conjunction with our "Supergirl" Episode Guide, the Episode Reviews presented on these pages are designed to give you the Superman Homepage reviewer's opinion on each "Supergirl" episode.

In "Supergirl", Kara at age 12 was sent from her dying home planet of Krypton to Earth, where she was taken in by the Danvers, a foster family who taught her to be careful with her extraordinary powers. After repressing said skills for more than a decade, Kara is forced to bust out her super moves in public during an unexpected disaster. Energized by her heroism for the first time in her life, she begins embracing her abilities in the name of helping the people of her city, earning herself a super moniker along the way.

The cast includes: Melissa Benoist as Kara/Supergirl, Chyler Leigh as Alexandra "Alex" Danvers, Mehcad Brooks as James Olsen, Laura Benanti as Alura Zor-El, Calista Flockhart as Cat Grant, David Harewood as Hank Henshaw, and Jeremy Jordan as Winslow Schott.
