^ ah. thanks.
FWIW, 8 episodes in is exactly where I thought it started getting better.
I agree, that's my favorite of those early eps. But it's kind of surrounded by subpar eps, imo, so I still feel like episode 8 is where it started to find it's footing because that was more like the beginning of a relatively consistent uptick in quality. Or maybe episode 7, but other than the big reveal I honestly wasn't as fond of "Human for a Day" as others seem to be. I HATED the love triangle stuff there more than in any episode, and was almost ready to write-off Winn as a character after that (thankfully I didn't, and grew to enjoy him). The drama there just seemed so forced to me. "Hostile Takeover" I felt was the one that got me really invested in the main character dynamics of the show, and it also started to feel a bit more serialized from there on, which is always a plus for me.People keep saying this. But for me "How Does She Do It?" was awesome. She saved a building. She saved a train. How is that not awesome?
If you removed some of the Cat Corp scenes and the romantic subplots, I think Supergirl would be a much stronger show... When Supergirl is good, it's very good. But when the writing is bad, it's very bad. Here's hoping for a stronger, more consistent Season 2.
Supergirl season 1 is much better than the most recent Arrow which was almost unwatchable, particularly with Felicity. And I don't find Barry and Iris have so much chemistry at all. Not that I find Mechad has so much chemistry with Melissa either.
I enjoy bits and pieces of this show but I don't understand how people can really "love" this show. It's very poorly done. These Berlanti shows need shorter seasons. And drop the SJW rhetoric, it's over the top.
This is a 5/10 show. the only cool thing is that we're getting live action versions of characters we know.
