Supergirl: Still I Rise

Supergirl’s final season has been remarkably uneven on many fronts. This particular episode has many of these problems all at once. There are a few good scenes, a few really bad ones, inconsistent internal logic, and characters using powers that don’t make sense, as well as forgetting powers and helpful coincidence.

Stargirl: Summer School, Chapter Five

For a show that started off relatively bright and sunny, Stargirl has really developed a dark side. Eclipso is loose in Blue Valley, and that’s bad news for everyone. Now there’s creepiness in the shadows, unexpected allies and enemies, and a lot happening behind the scenes.

Supergirl: Dream Weaver

Supergirl’s final season continues with an odd mix of adventure, more social issues, and some character decisions. Brainiac 5 is still off returning Zor-El to Argo City, and Lena is off in search of her past, so it’s a slightly reduced cast this week. Making up for that, Kelly is back from her odd absence last week, when they actually needed her skill set.

Legends of Tomorrow: There Will Be Brood

The Legends of Tomorrow are usually a fun bunch with some weird adventures. I’ve heard about some of the changes coming up, and not liked any of them. Well, they’re making me less happy in how they’re getting there, as they make some questionable choices this episode.

Stargirl: Summer School, Chapter Three

One of the things I’ve enjoyed the most about Stargirl is the history from DC’s older characters they’ve managed to bring in, bit by bit. They’ve created some interesting mysteries (Why was Dr. Midnight so much older than he should have been? Where are the rest of the Seven Soldiers of Victory?) but still respect at least most of the various character’s pasts.
