Supergirl’s fifth season continues, and I’m really not enjoying the direction of pretty much anything. There’s bad writing, weird character choices, and the characters in general just seem to be getting sent in dark directions or mis-used in general.
I thought the season premier of Supergirl was disappointing. Honestly, I disliked and/or disagreed with almost every choice they made. The second episode was a bit better, but honestly, that bar is practically subterranean.
In the fifth season of Supergirl, there are a lot of changes to the show. I have to say, overall, I don’t care for the ones I’ve seen so far, or most of the ones I hear are coming. Hopefully, if nothing else, they will at least stop clubbing us over the head with modern morality plays.
The battle against the racist (speciesest?) hate group Children of Liberty rages on in “Rather the Fallen Angel.”
One of the great things about science fiction is that you can use it to illustrate social issues without being preachy about it. If you do it right, anyway. Supergirl, for most of this season, feels like they’re clubbing us over the head with the idea.
The DEO and their allies are dealing with the ramifications of last episode as they deal with more events in “Ahimsa.” Supergirl is out cold and in her new armor as the others look on worriedly.
This is a season finale. So there will likely be spoilers in this review. Bear that in mind before reading.
