Let's just get this out of the way. The fact that none of you are proactively sending me tons of cash so I can blog all day is completely unacceptable. As it stands, I actually have to WORK for a living. Translation: work has been crazy busy, but the staff here at Steve's Comic Blog appreciate your patience.
As with all things (except Game of Thrones and The Flash), I am behind. I just completed episode 10 of Supergirl, season one. This show is a lot of fun. It's lighter in tone, very similar to The Flash in that aspect. Here are some random thoughts so far...
Supergirl/Kara Danvers: If they wanted to pick someone insanely cute, they succeeded. She's more than that in the show, which is great. I like her enthusiasm, and her temper has had to be kept in check a few times. I like that. She's not a crazy person, but it's "real" that someone could react to situations with a bit of a hothead approach sometimes.
Cat Grant: Sometimes I think she is brilliantly played, other times I am anxiously awaiting the next scene. We get it. She's tough and successful. You can be both of those things without being a nightmare.
Jimmy Olsen: Very well done here! I like the actor, and he adds a lot to the team.
Winn: That is his name, right? Too much hurt puppy, and not enough "sacking it up".
Hank Henshaw: Well, I hated him until I found out. SPOILER FREE!
The sister: No.
Overall this is a really fun show. I am excited to see the Flash crossover. With the introduction of Superman in season 2, I am hoping that it doesn't turn into a "man saves woman" marathon. I feel like I have talked about this before. Maybe it was on the podcast. Maybe I can barely remember what I had for breakfast...either way, Superman is larger than life, yet down to earth, and I hope the actor portraying him conveys that (as well as the writers).
