So yes, I finally watched the first season of Supergirl. What to say? First off, the premise is quite interesting. When Krypton was destroyed, young Kara was sent to Earth to watch over her baby cousin, Kal-el. Due do various circumstances, she arrives on Earth significantly later than he does, and he is already an adult and already Superman. So what is Kara supposed to do when Earth already has a superhero and her cousin can take care of himself? Supergirl’s path is a bit different from that of her cousin, given that she is willing to work with her adoptive sister Alex and the DEO, a government organization tasked with dealing with aliens headed by Hank Henshaw, who has his own interesting past. Kara also works as an assistant to Kat Grant for KatCo for her day job, and has as coworkers Jimmy Olsen (yes, that Jimmy Olsen) and her best friend Winn. Not everyone is happy that Supergirl exists (looking at you, Maxwell Lord), but her persistence and optimism are catching. I actually like such a light superhero series (sorry Batman and Arrow). It is smilar to The Flash in tone. Even better, thanks to events on The Flash, Supergirl can crossover to that universe whenever there is a story worth telling. I also appreciate that while the effects are reasonably realistic the focus is on the characters and how they try to navigate both their lives and their relationships. All in all, a fun watch if you enjoy superhero stories.
