Supergirl: Fear Knot

This final season of Supergirl has really not been their best work. I don’t know if they know it’s over, or the stories just aren’t jelling, or maybe it’s me. Whatever the cause, it’s really not working for me on pretty much any level.

Supergirl: Prom Again!

Last episode, Dreamer and Brainiac 5 went back in time to hunt up some Kryptonian DNA to power a scanner to find the lost Supergirl in the fractured Phantom Zone (yes, that sentence was complicated. That’s where we are now).

Supergirl: Prom Night!

This final season of Supergirl has, to be kind, not been their best. I’ve seen a lot of odd things, inexplicable decisions, and generally questionable writing. I’m not sure exactly what it says that they put out a much better episode that had most of the cast, including their main character, either absent or in a greatly reduced role.

Supergirl: Lost Souls

I have to admit, I’ve found the Supergirl series to be uneven as it’s gone on. They’ve had some great ideas, some poor execution, and a few great moments. I will be forever grateful to the show for introducing the Tyler Hoechlin version of Superman, which is the best take on the character I’ve seen in years.

Supergirl: A Few Good Women

Last episode of Supergirl was another hybrid sort of thing, being officially the premier of the sixth and final season, but also sort of the finale of season five, all smushed together due to COVID complications. Now, we’re dealing with the new issues introduced last time, as various subplots and status quos are set up for the coming episodes.

Supergirl: Immortal Kombat

The Covid-shortened season of Supergirl comes to an end with episode 19 out of what was supposed to be 22. Like Flash and Batwoman, they were forced to end production early (although unlike those shows, the whole cast is coming back as far as we know), and improvise a finale out of what they had.

Supergirl: The Missing Link

Events have been building to a head since the Crisis rolled through and changed the world and people’s memories. Lex is nearly unassailable, Leviathan has tentacles everywhere, and Brainy convinced himself to work for one of the nastiest villains on the planet.

Supergirl: Reality Bytes

Supergirl hasn’t been shy about addressing social issues. Among their firsts were introducing Nia Nal/Dreamer, the first trans superhero in live action. Her story is a big part of this week’s episode…

Supergirl: It’s a Super Life!

        I’ve had a few episodes with the writing and choices on Supergirl at times. This week’s episode both proved to be of better quality, and showed that the work environment must be pretty good. A lot of characters who have left the show come back for this episode, and that’s not something you see a lot.
