Supergirl - Triggers television review

“Triggers” offers an emotional episode by introducing a villain with an unique ability to attack Kara (Melissa Benoist) where she’s as vulnerable as any human walking the streets. National City’s new bank robber turns out to be a meta-human named Psi (Yael Grobglas) who has the ability to force those around her to live their greatest fears. Her first two interactions with Psi don’t go well for the Girl of Steel whose visions of the end of Krypton and being trapped within her lifepod brings her to her knees. Only after understanding how her earlier fears relate to the loss of Mon-El who may be dead, or at best doomed to the same claustrophobic loneliness she felt as a teenager, can Kara fight through her fears and make a stand.

Supergirl - Girl of Steel television review

Supergirl‘s return to television introduces Morgan Edge (Adrian Pasdar) as a new ongoing threat to National City while a strictly-business Kara (Melissa Benoist) continues to struggle to deal with the emotional toll of losing Mon-El (Chris Wood) while fighting off a new terrorist known as Bloodsport and running away from her non-super-hero responsibilities. While Bloodsport, and his phantom submarine, provides the immediate threat, it’s obvious Edge is going to be stepping into the role of the season’s larger villain-behind-the-scenes this season.

Supergirl – The Complete Second Season

Supergirl - The Complete Second Season Blu-ray reviewIn a year where both The Flash and Arrow found themselves recycling different versions of the same story (evil speedsters and archers), Supergirl took a definite step forward as the best of DC’s television line-up. Sure, the exit of Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart) as a regular after the first couple of episodes left a huge hole to fill and there were some clunkers early on, but this season saw Kara (Melissa Benoist) grow considerably over the course of the year take on Cadmus, get a boyfriend (Chris Wood) and deal with his evil mother (Teri Hatcher), and make an unlikely friend in Lena Luther (Katie McGrath).

Highlights from this year include the two-part season finale, the show taking a hard stand against anti-immigration policy, the first appearance of Mr. Mxyzptlk (Peter Gadiot), exploring what’s next for Superman’s best friend, Kara flexing her reporting muscles and standing by her friends, the return of Livewire (Brit Morgan), the introduction of Superman (Tyler Hoechlin), and a super-team-up against Metallo.
