The moment we were all waiting for finally came! We had all of the CW´s DC superheroes -or at least most of them – in one long crossover episode that practically amounted to a 2hr or so movie!
Yes, I know it took me ages, but I finally had time to post my thoughts on Invasion, the TV team up we have been all waiting for and never thought would be possible to have, So… eventhough it´s been like a week or so since it… here are my thoughts.
Anyhow, when I heard Supergirl was going to continue on the CW, I knew they had to include her in a crossover sooner or later, in whichever form they could. In fact, I was so excited that my friends and I agreed to wait ´til all the episodes were out so we could watch them as a 2hr movie, and I even got my brothers to watch it!
That being said, I´m a little disappointed that Supergirl -the show- wasn´t part of the crossover; but I can understand the logistics still being kind of wonky and the fact that making Supergirl part of the main earth in which all events happen, would signify severe changes for the series -and maybe the other ones to-, so… I guess I´m ok with it.
Therefore, since the storyline was really divided in 3 series, I thought it would be a good idea to do the same with my review. So… Invasion!
Does everyone have to be a superhero? Like seriously we already have Ms. Martian, Mon-El, and Martina Manhunter -that´s a lot of M´s-, do we really need James Olsen to join them? and Jimmy Olsen?
I mean nothing against Jimmy, but this seems like the Arrow dilemma with Laurel all over again.
So… let´s just hope it doesn´t go the same way the whole Black Canary arc went down; unless that means Jimmy will leave the series, because if that´s the case… I think I can be ok with it, and it´s not that I don´t like Jimmy, not really, but… anyway onto the episode.
Seriously, how many aliens are there living in Supergirl´s earth?!, How come the D.E.O. doesn´t know about them? Do they know about them?
´Cause there´s a whole bar they didn´t know about so one has to wonder how many other bars are there.
And, if Supergirl´s president is pushing an Alien Amnesty Act, there must be at least hundreds if not thousands of them, right?, right?
Anyway in my last review I mentioned a little about how Supergirl seemed to be treating aliens as a kind of commentary on immigration, and I guess now no one can say that´s not the case since this week Supergirl went full on political with the whole aliens as legal citizens and the introduction of its madame president.
Me being late to review Supergirl and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. seems to be becoming a tradition -I have to break it, and I have to do it now-.
Anyhow, the season premiere was good, pretty good, in fact, I´d say great; except that for all that I liked the episode, I felt like something was missing. I still don´t know what that “something” was but what I do know is that the second episode, the second episode was awesome!
It had it all! It was funny, had great action, touching moments and even some drama. As I said this episode pretty much had it all, to the point of being almost perfect or at least in my book, which is why I can only hope that Supergirl continues to do as well as in this episode, on a week to week basis.
It´s back! It´s finally back! And I couldn´t be more happy about it. Last season Supergirl was on the list of shows I enjoyed the most. It´s also one of the ones I was the most excited to see return and honestly speaking the one I worried the most about. What with the whole being renewed or not and then, moving to The CW.
I mean, is not like I´m not grateful to the network for picking up the series and not letting it die -although I think it should have been in the CW from the get go-, but… at the same time, I couldn´t help but worry, especially after what has happened to my enjoyment of Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow not being to my liking and The Flash…, well my feelings on that show are almost as complicated as the timelines shown there.
The point is that I was concerned, and the new casting announcements did little to reassure me, in fact. I´d even go as far as saying that they only managed to worry me even more.
And I know that new characters aren´t necessarily a bad thing, sometimes they can be great!, but after what happen to Arrow and his super crowded storylines, and Legends cast without a clear direction nor development, well… yeah I worried.
Luckily, The Adventures of Supergirl was a fun, entertaining, and quite well-rounded episode; so… while I´m still not 100% sure the series won´t go downhill at some point; I´m cautiously optimistic? Anyway, to the episode.
Ok CBS I need you to renew Supergirl, I really need you to do it, and I need you to do it now! ´Cause there´s no way I´m going to be able to survive the summer unless I know for a fact that Supergirl is coming back.
So Supergirl, besides the problems I have had with the show´s cheesiness from time to time -I don´t want to talk about episodes like Worlds Finest, Solitude, and Myriad-, I have to say that I truly enjoyed this first season and the season finale. Continue reading →
I really don´t get why Supergirl is such a difficult sell to all my family and friends, last week I barely got my friends to watch the episode and I don´t get why. I mean I know that the pilot wasn´t the best -but the same can be said about Agents of Shield and Arrow-, but it got better from episode 4 onwards -episode 3 for me- and that´s better than AOS did during its first season.
While I wouldn´t say that Supergirl is flawless ´cause it isn´t but right now I feel story wise and in character development is better than Arrow, Flash and Legends of Tomorrow; ´cause the characters on the first one sometimes don´t even make sense, the second one has become too convoluted and the last one doesn´t seem to have anything going in reality -except for Captain Cold who I loved-, and all of them are suffering this problem mainly because they are way overcrowded -as it´s AOS– Continue reading →
