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).

Check out Field of Geeks!  It's a podcast.  I'm involved.  We bring you all sorts of fun stuff...movie, TV, comics, video games, medical/legal advice...well, we do most of those things.  Field of Geeks on iTunes, Facebook, or Podbean.  Twitter, too!  Speaking of, I am on Twitter, as @stevescomicblog!
