From the watching the pilot, Melissa Benoist/Supergirl is the best thing about the show.  Her whole "working with the government to fight aliens" seems a lot like Flash fighting meta-humans.  She will probably have a "freak of the week" like Smallville did.

I thought it was good.  Not great, but good and it could lead into great later.

Meanwhile the ratings were very good.  They also cut across all the demographics, meaning whole families are watching this together.  There really has not been many family shows in recent years, so this is a good thing.

I didn't like it. I didn't like the dialogue, i don't like how heavy-handed is the "girl power" theme, i don't like that Olsen is turned into a jock to appease female audiences and the supporting characters didn't make an impression to me. Effects are good and Benoist is cute as Kara but the show didn't grasp me. One thing that i'm tired of is writers telling me that she is girl and strong. Don't tell me, SHOW ME.

Some new news.

Laura Vandervoot, aka Supergirl on Smallville, will play Indigo(Brainiac 8)

They will also be doing their own version of "For the Man Who Has Everything."

Previously announced elsewhere was Bizarro Girl.

It would be cool if they had Laura Vandervoot play Power Girl and then appear on the Flash as Power Girl again.  I can dream.......

So I'm finally taking the time to catch up on Supergirl... I haven't been keeping up with it due to it not being on hulu, but it's a show I really do want to support. I'm still a bit behind everyone else (I'm mostly done with episode 6 now) and I reached an epiphany watching the episode I wanted to type out. I'm spoiler tagging for those who aren't caught up JIC, but again, if you're past episode 6 you're fine.

So it turns out that Supergirl was temporarily canceled and replaced by the Martian Manhunter Show.  Fortunately, it was quite good, depicting a very classic version of his origin while diving right into emotions of it all, especially anger and survivor's guilt.

And that is all I will say, but probably the best adaptation of the character's origin story ever.

Grah, Cat beat me to posting about this. I'm so excited for this crossover, and I'm curious to see where they go with it... Is this gonna be a world hopping Barry, or are they setting these shows in the same world, or is this the Supergirl universe's version of Barry... lots of questions, and I can't wait.

Well.... the Flash has only discovered Earth 2.  I don't see how they explain getting to another Earth on her show... it's possible.

If you did not see the last episode on the Flash, a brief shot of Supergirl was shown as they crossed from one universe to another.  Multiverse theory basically confirmed.  How he'll get their, we don't know yet. My guess is, an accident trying to cross over or back to or from Earth 2.

Also, Grant's been posting photos from the shoot with the Supergirl folks.  Here the two costumes together.

So lately I've been streaming JL/JLU with a friend of mine (I'm alternating in some Flash as well, which he'd been enjoying) and we watched "For the Man Who Has Everything" on tuesday. Finally got to watching Supergirl today (it's not as easy to access since it's not on Hulu) and I just started laughing.

I've seen several items that say no word has been heard yet. This may be a positive spin to dead silence.

It's not really conflicting information... the reason everyone is all "OMG the sky is falling, supergirl is being cancelled" is because CBS put out a list of shows being renewed on the 25th, and Supergirl wasn't on it... Despite the CEO stating on the 8th that all new shows were getting renewed. This has got everyone calling out doomsday prophecies for the show, which has been slowly dropping in ratings for awhile now, particularly the episodes leading up to the crossover (the crossover itself got HUGE ratings though). However, it could be a number of things, and nothing has come out saying the show is actively being cancelled.

And it seems like Supergirl has been renewed for Season 2--but on a different network, a lower budget, and a change in filming locations.  Supergirl will now air on the CW alongside The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow.

In a basic sense I like this change. Having Supergirl in Vancouver with the other shows and on the same network should increase the chances for crossovers by 100% (it makes me wonder if they knew that back then if they'd have handled the crossover differently). The budget changes and move do concern me. We could lose cast members and I wonder what effect it will have on the special effects.

I quite enjoyed Supergirl. Glad it's continuing.
