My Commentary on Supergirl

The following won’t contain any huge spoilers, as in, nothing you won’t have already guessed if you’ve seen the trailer or the first episode of any superhero-type of tv show ever. Still, if you get annoyed at any spoilers at all, just watch the show first.

I watched the pilot of Supergirl and the entire time, I was messaging my thoughts to my friend Pat. Instead of writing an articulate critical article here, I thought I’d just copy and paste most of my comments. Enjoy.

Pat
Super girl doesn’t really appeal to me, have you watched it yet?

Ivy
Was about to. I’ve been told it’s like flash but different.

Pat 
Message me with your thoughts after

Ivy
what about during?

The exposition was okay. A lot less cheese than I was expecting.

She reminds me of Felicity from Arrow

Pat 
Huh, I like felicity! That could be cool 😃

Ivy 
omg lol she’s clueless i love her

Pat 
Hehe sounds like a good start

Ivy
four minutes and thirty seconds in already has me laughing out loud

omg she’s making it worse!!!

“Whop-pow!” lol I like this guy

7:10 in and we have a love triangle

Pat 
Bloody hell, it’s moving pretty quickly tbh I’m impressed!

Ivy 
Awww, she’s lonely!

Ooh, it’s Lexi Grey

“When in doubt, go with blue. It is your colour” lololol

Hmm, the initial incident is thirty seconds early. Good for them

lol she has useless glasses too? Why????

Let’s be honest, she should be naked right now

Pat
Naked?

Ivy
WHY IS NO ONE ON THE CRASHING PLANE WEARING THE OXYGEN MASKS?? THEY ARE THERE FOR A REASON

Pat 
Aahahah 😛

Ivy 
Yeah, naked. Her clothes should’ve been burnt and torn to such an extent that she wouldn’t have any.

Pat 
But surely the costume is pretty suped-up

Ivy 
But she hasn’t got one yet

Aww she’s so excited like a puppy

Aww, puppy got sad

Pat 
Naw sad puppies are sad 😕

Ivy
17:55 here comes the suit

She could totally say “My sister saw” and get a promotion right now but she’s still stunned I think

lol love interest #1 is excited

poor guy thinks he’s getting kissed or that she’s coming out as gay

lol no man shut up

The effects need some work

lol lady literally just said “Can you believe it? A female hero!” like, I know. Those are rare and endangered.

The villain has appeared, and he’s 2.5 minutes early! I’m hopeful that they’re saving this extra time for something good later.

I kind of wish Superman had his own TV show, just so we’d get crossovers. But he’s got enough movies and his personality’s too bland to carry a show. Too bad.

Why haven’t Flash or Arrow mentioned Superman or anything? They’d better mention Supergirl! Ooh, she’d get along with them so well!

Love interest #1 just casually hacks the local police. Yeah, okay.

Oh, first it’s their planet’s symbol for hope, now it’s their family’s coat of arms. Let’s all be honest, it’s a freakin’ ‘S’ for super, okay?

Aww, they used the extra time so they could put her in a revealing suit? Seriously?

Oh look. Drama. Really boring drama.

Pat 
I’m all for a revealing costume, but only if she’s okay with it of course

Ivy 
Well she wasn’t forced into it, but she was uncomfortable.

lol hello cheese

It can’t be good to rip a shirt off like that.

Someone’s gotta have noticed this incredibly loud and costly fight

Pat 
Hehe, so do you like it?

Ivy 
Yes

If only she could’ve saved Lexi Grey’s plane in Grey’s Anatomy

Oh yeah, just YELL ABOUT HOW SHE’S A SUPERHERO IN THE HALLWAY OF HER APARTMENT WHERE ANYONE CAN HEAR

How do indestructible women shave their leg hairs I wonder?

“She’s not strong enough” “Why? Cuz she’s a girl?” I’M ALL FOR EQUALITY BUT WE CAN SEE THAT SHE IS LITERALLY NOWHERE NEAR AS STRONG AS VILLAIN GUY

“I can’t do it!” “Yes you can, I believe in you!” *does the thing no problem*

wtf?

She’s a lot like Felicity especially at work wow

Pat 
Cool, sounds pretty interesting, I might have to watch this….

Ivy 
What a coincidence the timing of Kal-el and photographer guy coinciding with bad guys deciding to appear suddenly.

who dis?

Hmmm

It’s only the first season, so I’m going to give the villains the benefit of the doubt, but they really aren’t interesting. But super girl’s personality will easily hold up this show.

Pat 
So is superman a main part of it all?

Ivy
As much as Oliver’s dad is in the first season of Arrow. He’ll probably fade away as time goes on.

Pat 
Cool, so what’s the supergirls backstory here?

Ivy
She came to take care of superman, but the space-flight experienced some space-turbulence and she got there kind of late, and superman was already superman when she got here at 13 years old. So she was like, cool, I get to be a normal teenager!

Pat
Awesome!

That’s it! Have you seen it? What did you think? If not, are you planning to see it?

Have you seen it yet? What did you think? Is there anywhere you hope they take the show this season? Tell me your thoughts below!
