Supergirl: Don't know how I feel about this. First off, I'm not terribly familiar with the source material on this. Which second, makes it hard to figure out whether the hamfisted girl power dialog was from the comics or from the writers of the show (I could believe either/or, comics are notoriously sexist (among other things) even when they are trying to be progressive). And third, since when the hell has Jimmy Olsen ever approached suave?

Probably worth a three episode test, but I don't expect a miracle.

I really shouldn't have enjoyed it as much as I did. The script and plot left a lot to be desired, but it was really just enjoyable to watch a show that delights in itself the way this one does. I'll keep watching for a few more episodes to see what happens. Right now, my hopes are high though.
