I kinda liked the Dark Supergirl more than I though I would, but I hope it doesn’t last much. For now, it’s time for the obligatory “Everyone get’s mindfucked” episode every SciFy show must have. Psi with a cheap but kinda hot 90s leather suit comes to wreck havoc and push everyone’s triggers. Come react!
If you haven’t noticed by now, I’m big into synecdoches. There’s a lot of situations where one little aspect of a piece of media is indicative of a broader philosophy, and when you look at the big picture thinking about this philosophy, you can see how it all works together.
We’re back for more D.C. Soaps! And for Supergirl and it’s the third season. You know what that means: Dark and broody superhero season. I really hope I’m mistaken, have you seen the previews? It looks a bit Arrow-y. Anyway, come react, come to complain, come to praise if it’s great. Talk, people!
Marvel may be just beginning their incursion into digital-first comics with Immortal Iron Fists, but DC is still clearly the king. Aside from current digital-first books Injustice 2 and Bombshells, today is the release of the first part of Gotham City Garage, a mix of DC’s superheroines, motorcycles, and Mad Max. And…
What are the strong points of Supergirl and Flash? There’s several things they do well, but in particular being the bright, optimistic shows should be one of them. The last season for both shows... was not quite that. This last year gave us some good stuff, some bad stuff, and some frustrating stuff. So let’s take…
No scenery shall be left unchewed! Welcome to the Supergirl Finale Reaction Thread. Now that Superman will be brainwashed for a hot minute AGAIN (Boys, amir8?!), we shall see how this invasion by the Wisteria Laxamites ends.
Sexy red riding hood scene! Or something. I don’t know what to make off that image. Anyway. Cat’s back! Let’s react.
We are coming. We are coming. We are coming. We are coming. We are about to react. Let’s react.
Family, you amorphous metaphorical thing that has but one true purpose: to help our heroes arc and character move forward once you inevitably get abducted. Tonight’s turn to help Kara’s development goes to: ALEX. Let’s react.
We’re back beeches. It’s time to smile and cuddle and not think about too hard about etical career choices for superheroes when they are not superheroing. Right now it’s time to react to Supergirl!
M-U-S-I-C M-E-I-S-T-E-R! OK OK OK so Let’s hope this cross-over starts a bit more cross-overy than the last one and it’s not a last minute thing. But anyway, let’s react to Supergirl tonight as if we were Sue Sylvester.
Welcome! Tonight we have ETHICAL DILEMAS. It’s important stuff about the gray aspect of doing what’s wrong for the right reasons and stuff. And I’m sure this show will handle it with aplomb. See you on the other side!
Wooops. React. See you in a bit.
Welcome to the fifth
ele... DIMENSION. The CW strikes again and now I kinda wanna bang Mr. Mxyzptlk. I feel weird. So if you had great sex with this guy, would you be screaming his name in reverse? Think about it and let’s react to Supergirl.
So this seemed like a good idea to talk about the Rebirth series of Supergirl. The first story arc, “Reign of the Cyborg Superman,” came to an end last week and the show (which the Rebirth series takes a lot of elements from) is back from hiatus. But first, a history lesson.
Tonight’s episode of Supergirl once again focused on Lena Luthor, the sister of Superman’s arch-nemesis Lex Luthor, and whether or not she’s evil. Lena Luthor actually has a long history in the comics, starting in the Silver Age. In fact, much like the show, Lena and Supergirl had a long friendship and Lena even knew…
Metallo is back! I’m not sure how great that’s it, but OK! Also more Luthors stuff. Let us react.
An excellent argument was made here to give one of Superman’s greatest moments to Supergirl. It’s a compelling argument, sure, but at the end of the day, it is still one of Superman’s greatest moments — so shouldn’t they try to adapt Supergirl’s greatest moments? Which brings up the question: what is Supergirl’s…
If you had to use one moment, one scene, one page even, to sum up Superman, I think it would be hard to find a better one that the scene with Regan on the ledge in All-Star Superman.
Time to fight some white martian power. Welcome to the latest Superchica episode, my peeps. Tonight promises to have cute CGI creatures galore. Come inside the reaction thread.
