Its official. CBS has started production of the first season of the TV series SUPERGIRL.

The lead character stars Melissa Benoist (Glee) and also has Calista Flockhart (Ally McBeal) and Dean Cain (Lois and Clarke) and Helen Slater (Supergirl the movie) in the cast.

Written and produced by Ali Alder (No Ordinary Family) and Greg Borlanti (Arrow and Flash), the show has 24 year old Supergirl having hidden her powers, suddenly having to reveal herself to combat super villains...dont they all.

Though apparently on a different channel to Arrow and Flash there are suggestions of cross over episodes. Lets keep it in the family.

Honestly, I think this looks terrible based on the trailer. That is just my opinion of course, but it just does not look interesting.

I'll give it a chance, though.

It does seem a little designed for the teeny bopper. But lets hope given its made by the Arrow/Flash group.

It's going up against Gotham in the fall. I had almost decided not to continue with Gotham, so it is possible that hour will be free. That preview was terrible.

The biggest thing for me is the not-quite-right colors of her suit. It is very distracting. IF they've chosen to work in this franchise, they shouldn't alter the basics.

Aside from that, way too much emo.

However, since I've already waved bye bye to Gotham, it will definitely be given a shot.

Personally I would like to see the Supergirl having a bit more mongrel than as shown in the shorts. Squeaky clean suggests its for the Under 15s. A more ambiguous character such as the Oliver Queen in Arrow would have been better.

any confirmation weather its a part of the arrow/flash shared universe? itd be nice to see her pop up in Legends of Tomorrow

If I understand the premise of "Supergirl" right then Superman is already an established hero. Since there has been no mention of a super powered alien running around saving the day in "Arrow" and "The Flash" I think its safe to assume that they don't share the same universe.

However, these are comic book shows and they could have someone travel between time lines/dimensions in order to have a cross over episode :)

Smallville is not part of the Arrowverse :) But I think supergirl is also by Greg Berlanti who does ARROW & The Flash & LOT, but as of yet CBS aren't allowing Supergirl to be part of that shared universe, if it does well I imagine they might allow it down the track its still a greg berlanti show afterall

Had Constantine been renewed, Stephen Amell was in talks to guest on the show for season 2 making it part of the Arrowverse, and i think there trying to get Constantine character to appear in Arrow next season so that it can be part of the Arrowverse, so who knows eventually Supergirl could guest on Arrow or The Flash or even LOT in the future

The main thing standing between the Arrow and Supergirl is that those worlds clearly have a very different history, namely that Superman doesn't exist in the Arrowverse.

Heck, from what I've read Warner have completely forbidden the Arrowverse from even saying Metropolis and Gotham :)

I don't like this series at all.
It's too cliched.
A lonely/shy girl trying to survive in a big city,then gets some kind of motivation (here, her powers) and then she beats everything and gets on top. Is it 90's?
I rather prefer a Supergirl who is more badass and tough. She is powerful than her cousin, superman.

The only thing I'm a sucker for is a well-told story, no matter the genre. There are times I feel I'm watching entirely different shows than other people, and I also sometimes wonder why I continue to watch certain shows because they aren't wowing me the way they seem to be doing for others.

But still, not a bad place to start. I hope they explore things in a bit more darker depth like they've done for Flash to make it appealing. She's supposed to be the angriest DC superhero right? I hope they take that aspect of her and include it in the show. But so far, she has little to be angry about. It's that sorta thing that makes me worry. But I'll be reserving final thoughts until I see a few more episodes myself.

That's kind of the problem having a character as powerful as Superman or Supergirl, you're very limited as to who you can get who can prove to be an adequate enemy for them. Superman has the benefit of having Lex, but Supergirl doesn't really have as many memorable adversaries. Though I reckon bringing Amanda Waller into Supergirl as more of a full on antagonist wouldn't hurt.

Oh oh oh! I just thought of something awesome.

We know from Arrow and Flash that no mention has ever been made of aliens or Superman, which you'd kinda think they would have done if Meta Humans were such a surprise, so my guess is that Supergirl is in one of the parallel Earths, so what if at the end of season 1 she gets sucked into the Arrowverse Earth and is stuck there, so she actually becomes the first Kryptonian superhero and actually is able to take the place of Superman on Arrow's Earth.

That's interesting. I don't think I recall a crossover being done on different networks. Like, I've seen SVU, Chicago Fire, and Chicago PD do crossovers, but they're on the same network. Just like tonight there is a Bones/Sleep Hollow 2 hour crossover event. :D But again...they're on the same network. :P

aretood2
November 1st, 2015, 10:14 AM
The main problem with an inter-network crossover would be that they'd be intentionally hurting one of their own TV shows that share the opposite time slot. What ever comes on CBS on Tuesday during the Flash will lose the Supergirl viewers because of the crossover, or the Arrow slot. Same thing with whatever the CW is broadcasting on Mondays during that slot. Unless they do a multi-network broadcast, but then that gets tricky, they'd be splitting their ratings and so on.

CBS is a part owner of CW (with Warner Brothers, which produces Supergirl), so it's not as improbable as it would be in most other situations.

So started watching this, im really liking it especially since they got rid of the whole "women power" agenda from the first few episodes that was kind of nauseating imo but now its almost got that Smallville feel imo or atleast it would have that smallville feel if given the chance i kinda hope it gets a second season

BTW not trying to start anything but those first 5 episodes were kinda painful and it made Kara, Cat and Alex seem kinda prudish, i know its a show with a female lead but still

just watched episode 13

The ratings fell off a lot on CBS and since WB owns CW, there wouldn't be a licensing fee involved. They're also moving production up to Vancouver to save money. The upside of both of those changes is that now we'll have a 4 night crossover event next season rather than the 2 night ones that Flash and Arrow have had the last 2 seasons.

"Airwolf" was a sci-fi / military adventure series about a reclusive loner played by Jan Michael Vincent with Ernest Borgnine as his sidekick. Together they used an "appropriated" supersecret high-tech helicopter to carry out supersecret government operations for their handlers, personified by Alex Cord aka "Archangel". It was one of my favorite series of all time, and I have all 3 CBS seasons on DVD

The show ran for 3 years on CBS, 84-86, and was not picked up after season 3.

Afterwards, USA network bought the rights to it and tried to resurrect the series. So it ran for one more year on USA network. But USA in 1987 wasn't CBS. They couldn't afford to make the show. They couldn't afford the talent, the writers or the effects. It was horrible.

Today, this last season of Airwolf is the standard which all horrible retreads are measured against. So far, none has come close to being worse.

Oh, and it just so happens that my current signature pic. is Airwolf herself.

If this pans out to be so, it makes sense. They can't justify not having Superman because of the movies when The Flash is also in the movies. CBS was being idiotic in that regard. Man I have come to truly respect the CW as a channel. They surprised me with The 100 and The Arrow and sense then I just believe that they can deliver. I have high hopes for Supergirl season 2.

I decided to give this show a go despite trying not to think of the terrible 1984 movie effort. I really came to like it, how Supergirl is portrayed as 'human' despite having these powers. I've liked how things don't always happen as she expected them to and how she goes about turning things round. She also doubts herself and this has led to some great moments.

I love how she plays against Kat Grant, their moments are the highlights for me always. This Supergirl has a personality, not just portrayed as a woman with 'powers' going from averting one disaster to another. She has personal disasters too!

I hope it continues to be as entertaining with its move to the CW for its second season as its first season and production values don't drop. If it keeps to the same level as Arrow and The Flash I can live with that. I hope it doesn't end up as lackluster as Legends of Tomorrow though! The characters in that were great when they appeared in Arrow and The Flash but I don't know what's happened to them since they are in their own show!

I've actually enjoyed the fact that Superman didn't make his presence felt in a way as to detract from the story of his cousin. It kept things 'real' in a way in that we as viewers didn't come to expect him to come and bail Kara out of trouble all the time. I hope that any appearance that he makes eventually is reasonable and doesn't belittle Kara's presence in the episode.

I agree Tom Welling would be the choice I'd go for to play Superman. A nice tie in to 'Smallville'. I've only got round to watching the first season of that so far but I've liked what I've seen of him playing Superman.

Scrubs, awesome show btw, did a musical and it worked smashingly. It helped that it was a comedy of sorts. Why? Because they made their own songs. It's always a little off when musicals use actual pop music. I'm worried about the musical.

That said......Miss Martian is going to be on Supergirl :D I really really really hope they play her Character like they did in Young Justice. Also, they need a bit of diversity in types of women personality wise. A Young Justice type Miss Martian would do that just perfectly. I mean...is there much of a difference between Lucy and Alex? Cat is a bit different but not in the same way that Jimmy and Winn and Maxwell are different from each other. I'm starting to feel like a lot of female characters are pretty much the same person, more so than male characters.

And I really liked Miss Martian on that cartoon...>.>

Rahul Kohli, iZombie star and noted DC enthusiast, will play a potential comic book villain on Supergirl.
Kohli will guest-star in Episode 18 as Jack Spheer, a tech genius whose latest medical innovation, if successful, will eradicate major illnesses, Entertainment Weekly reports. Jack travels to National City to show off his invention to the press, including Kara (Melissa Benoist) and Snapper Carr (Ian Gomez). But his work trip also forces Jack to face his feelings for his ex, Lena Luthor (Katie McGrath).

Okay...

Ya know, I think we've found where all those out-of-work soap opera writers got jobs. Now the guest villain and the resident villain have to be dating?

I get it. When this show moved to CW, they did a lot of whiz-bang in the first few eps. They wanted to attract attention and they probably blew a good portion of the season's effects budget early on, so they have to cut that down now. It's cheaper to have actors/actresses act like lovesick puppies.

At least I hope that's it. As this continuing expansion of the relationship stuff keeps up, I'm losing interest in the show.

Well, compared to SG-1, with 10 seasons of subtext, almost everything seems like a soap opera.
However if I'd let myself be bothered by it, then the Mon-El Seeks A Girlfriend show would annoy me. But I won't let it, because I still like the rest.
(Especially that funny part when the writers try to convince people that Lena Luthor had a boyfriend. Is he... Does he have a beard?)

I do. It will be like last time, a regular Supergirl episode tied into a crossover Flash one. By the promos, it looks much more interesting than Mon-El being outed as [insert shocked smiley here] the Prince of Daxam.

I am becoming increasingly frustrated with the show as gthe season s went on. It's got to the point that the only thing that's kept me watching this long is Lena Luthor. she's the best thing to happen in season 2 and the only reason I haven't given up the show yet. But if it continues the way it's going in season 3 then even Lena won't be able to keep me watching

Well, I don't know about others, but as close I was with my half sisters, when I met my now significant other, started living together, then had children, we kind of ended seeing each other less and less. Even more seldom since they have kids too.

You have a day job, you want to go home and tell your partner what a good, or disastrous day you had. And you may also call you siblings, or get together on a Friday evening dinner, or a Saturday afternoon get together, with lots of food, an occasional beers, but the point is, a significant other is that for a reason. He or she can't come after your siblings, because they aren't that significant, are they?

I miss the Kara/Alex potsticker eating, pillow throwing moments, but unless we pretend that Alex and Maggie are not in a serious relationship, and what I get coming of the screen is that they are, then they get to be the ones to hear the good news first, and be the ones to console the other in case of bad news.

Falcon Horus
March 19th, 2017, 02:05 PM
I have the kind of relationship Alex has with Kara, and vice versa before there were significant others, with my sister.

We share a flat so that adds to the way we are but still. I can imagine if either of us were to meet someone that that would certainly change our dynamic towards each other, so I kinda feel like this is another natural progression in the Danvers' sister relationship. They will always be sisters who'll stick up for one another (see last episode) but there are others now in their lives which they are getting close to as well, sharing love and life. Ride or die!

This is a TV show, not real life and the sister relationship was the best thing about the show IMO. Now that it's almost no existent the show is suffering badly to me and it's frustrating that the writers are incapable of writing more than one meaningful relationship at a time. They could find a balance between the Alex/Maggie relationship and Alex/Kara relationship. They've either stopped caring about Alex/Kara or they are incapable of doing both

I totally disagree. Smallville's inhabitants were so inherently backwards, that I just stopped watching it after Season 1. I mean come on, how many times people need to see that Clark and the what-they-called-it are never together in the same place? Or how many head injuries, pixies, wizards, warlocks and loose magic is needed for them to forget they found him out??? Ugh, rant over, sorry. At least Lois & Clark did put a lampshade on it when they called Lois the most galactically stupid person on Earth.

So is Supergirl contrived? I believe after watching an invincible person flying because of yellow sun the rest comes easily.

Yes, this is a TV show, but particularly Alex's story, her coming out story was really true to life, I've heard many many people saying how it did hit home, how it made them relive their coming out feelings.

So yes, it's a tacky show about a flying alien girl, and the contrived villains of the week, but on the other hand it does tackle some very serious issues like sexism, equal rights, migrants, refugees, homophobia, etc.

It's far from being perfect, I say that they have majorly effed up the whole Mon-hell redemption story line, and instead we got a toxic relationship, when the prince of Mysoginistia constantly fails to treat Supergirl as an equal, and she still loves him and forgives him.

And no one has worked out that Kara and Supergirl are the same, and are never in the same place either. You can't pick on one show for it's craziness and ignore it in the other, it's ridiculous.
I'm not ragging on SG, I like all of the CW superhero shows (including SV, despite it's crazy antics), I am just saying it's hardly a tight, brilliant show without flaws, just like most shows on TV. It's like Stargate, it has some truly brilliant moments, but that's all they are, moments.

Being contrived is not always a bad thing you know............



Yes, this is a TV show, but particularly Alex's story, her coming out story was really true to life, I've heard many many people saying how it did hit home, how it made them relive their coming out feelings.

Yes, it was a great, well handled series of moments, the back and forth between Alex and Maggie, the very real concerns about acceptance that plague same sex couples, the different places they are at concerning their sexuality, the bad experience Maggie had being outed and getting over that with Alex, it's all good stuff, useful stuff and sometimes powerful stuff.



So yes, it's a tacky show about a flying alien girl, and the contrived villains of the week, but on the other hand it does tackle some very serious issues like sexism, equal rights, migrants, refugees, homophobia, etc.

Sure, and it should be applauded for it, but that does make it immune to fair criticism, does it?

Let's see. At least two nobodies found our themselves. Then Kara told Winn, James already knew, now the whole DEO knows. She also told Lucy, and I bet Lena knows too. Have I left somebody out?
Bottom line she can fool those who see either Kara or Supergirl regularly, and not those who see her as both regularly. I'm even sure Lucy would have found out if she weren't so bent over backwards being jealous of both the same time.

And I'm not denying it is. I'm sorry Smallville was a show of a different era, and I was looking for something in it that wasn't supposed to be there. It was a big disappointment, just like Supergirl was a big surprise for me. So I took your comparison a bit harsh, even if you've never meant it.

IMHO Supergirl is handling the whole "hero blindness" issue on a much more acceptable level, than all the old shows did. It's hard to toe the line between her posting "I'm Supergirl" on FB, and a whole town being apparently mentally challenged and taking them ten years for the light bulb to light up.

If they had better writers maybe they could have found a balance between the two relationships that could have worked for everyone. But I guess that's too much to ask for. So while it's good for Sanvers moving forward it's bye bye Kara/Alex.

Also why would anyone think the Kara/Mon-El relationship is healthy? Hell I would prefer Kara/James, even if they didn't have any chemistry

And they done a pretty good job developing Kara/Supergirl in season 1 to grow and be a strong, independent woman. Season 2 it's like the opposite

What were you looking for in Smallville?
As for my comparison being harsh, is it really that harsh? You like SG more, cool, awesome, I am glad you like the show. I like SV and SG, I just never had any real hopes for either because "Super-X" is a -really- hard thing to pull off well because, well, it's hard to deal with a character who can basically squash anything you put in front of them. I too am pleasantly surprised by SG, it's a good superhero show. I think there are -better- ones out there (Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Gotham spring to mind), but I never expected much from it. I like Charmed as well, but I never expected much from it either, it was just a bit of fun.

There are a few eps of SV where the "rank and file" realise there is something hinky about Clark, and it doesn't take 10 years for them to do it. I just don't see the difference in the Hero blindness as much as you do, that's all :)

Nope. BUT one of them did, when she tried crying sexual harassment on a superior she couldn't 'flirt' into giving her the high marks on her eval, which made her miss out on a promotion.. ALL cause she was known for doing it, when the claim came up, no one believed her...

No, Mr T.'s relationship is non-existant. I mean, we heard a lot about the husband but never got to see him, and then we did, and then they broke them up. It's more worthy of the age old "look, we have a same-sex relationship, and now we kill it off". The 100 killed the actual character -- that's even worse.

I generally am not a fan of relationships on screen -- and I certainly don't go looking for it. But Alex' works (hey Chy's husband picked out her on-screen girlfriend :p). Karamel (oddest name ever), I like as well. A lot of viewers don't seem to like Mon-El very much, but I do. I guess that helps.

I really don't like the Kara/Mon-El relationship because of various reasons. IMO young girls who watch this show shouldn't aspire to this type of relationship. It's unheslthy IMO

Love your sig BTW. I miss the sister relationship. Doesn't look like we're gonna get it back any time soon unfortunately, if ever :(


If anything Kara had been annoying me a lot this season.

I hate what they have done to her character this season, after such a wonderful first season with her. They've stripped her character down to next to nothing. It's become so bad that I was ready to throw in the towel and then they had to go announce Katie McGrath being promoted to series regular. That's just cruel.Now I have no choice but to stick with it.

I thought season 1 Kara, the way she grew to become a confident and independent young woman a breath of fresh air. Then they ruin all that in season 2 by making her all lovesick for an egotistical fratboy that never listens and keeps secrets from her. Also the way they've isolated her from her friends and sister is becoming frustrating. In season 1 during the black mercy thing Alex told us Kara's job meant everything to her. Gave her a sense of normalcy so her friends done all they coulkd to protect her job, now in season 2 all she cares about is Supergirl and Mon-El? It's like they took season 1 and flipped it around to do the complete opposite in season 2 :rolleyes: Spoilers for Supergirl/Flash crossoverAt the end of Supergirl she was so mad at Mon-El for the lies that she told him she deserved better or something to that effect. In the Flash she's like everything is forgiven. Guess she doesn't deserve better after all *facepalm* I'm starting to think she has split pe3rsonality disorder, or is actually a white martian. It would certainly explain a lot this season. As for Alex/Maggie. Initially I thought the coming out was handled quite well and liked them together but it seems like they're now just the token gay couple on the show, pushed into scenes for no apparent reason other than to have the gay couple have a few seconds screen time to kep some folks happy. There doesn't seem to be any real direction where they're going with this.

I also can't believe i'm saying this but I miss James :( I wasn't a lover of the guardian angle but I'd much rather have him than Mon-El. That guy is really starting to irritate me

On a sad note, it'll be a month before we get to see Lena again? I don't think I'll watch next week episode so it'll be a long wait


That title suggestion is completely appropriate. :(

It is unfortunately. I just hope they reaalise what they've done and try fix some of it in season 3 or I can't see them getting renewed for a fourth season

The 100 is their attempt to expand their viewer base. Same thing with the DC shows, though Supergirl came with a preset target audience, they didn't change that. That said, The 100's premise makes conventional relationship tropes rather difficult as opposed to Arrow and the other DC shows.

I am more than fed up with it. I don't watch this type of show for relationship content.
I started watching Supergirl because of my interest in the Superman franchise overall (except "Lois and Clark" I think it was, with Dean Cain and Teri Hatcher?, too much teenage crap). S1 was pretty good, but as you note, this season is an emo pit.
The only exposure to the other CW shows in this stable are the crossover episodes they've done this year, and they did not entice to continue watching Flash or anything else, too much teen angst for my taste. I got out of Jr. High school a long time back and have no wish to return.

I don't mind romance in shows, but no when it's taking over the show to the detriment of everything else. Have it there but have it more in the background instead of banging us over the head with it. Supergirl and the flash have become so tedious this season. I think Arrow has toned it down a bit thankfully but I'd like to see Supergirl get back to what made it so good in season 1. For whatever reason they've lost their way in season 2

Of the franchises you mention, I only have watched Batman (you forgot Vicki Vale) Spiderman, Superman and Iron Man.

These franchises generally have one significant relationship, usually between the hero and some person that motivates them, and those relationships are often not romantic.

The Kara/Mon-El relationship was one of the primary plots of the back half of season 2, I'd consider that pretty front and center.

That's why I said "one of" and the main reason for the invasion was Mon-El refusing to go back to Daxam with his mother because of his relationship with Kara. Plus the non-Daxamite focused episode with the Myxy love triangle and the Supergirl plot developments from the musical crossover.

Like I said, I'm OK with relationships in moderation and am a big fan of how they've been handling the Alex/Maggie relationship, but the Mon-El one seems like too much too fast.

Very true.. For the most part those 4 relationships WERE very frunt and center.. More so in some manner than the invasion.
It was not. It's angry fans doing the same thing again. You see something small you dislike and you blow it out of proportion. I saw all the time in the old days when SGA was airing. Linda was there

I assume we are talking about Linda:P

no, this time, I'm talking about myself unfortunately... :(


I'm happy i'll see Katie McGrath again, and i'll be happy if certain rumours become reality :D

And Katie McGrath is so awesome. :D

I miss Mon-El... he needs to come back.

There is one rumour, which is not really a rumour because it was in an interview with one of the execs that has me PO'd at the moment. I won't give up on the show for it, but meh... I won't like it, that's for sure.

They're apparently planning to break up Alex and Maggie, or have already done so.

I gathered. But that won't make it less about romances. Just different people will be "romancing". If it's true.

But it doesn't sound legit. They even track Maggie's dad down for the wedding. I know that Floriana is not available, but she could just be transferred to Daxam, or lost in a chronological vortex. Breaking them up is the stupidest cliche.

Honestly, of the major romantic relationships on the show, that's the one that I mind the least.
