Supergirl – First Episode


Finally caught up with the first episode of Supergirl and was pleasantly surprised.

It suffered a little from being the first episode – cramming all the back story in as quickly as possible, setting up the characters with broad brush strokes – but on the whole it was more than a little enjoyable. Melissa Benoist was pretty much perfect in the role, coming across as enthusiastic and willing to learn, despite the obstacles in her way and it bodes well for the rest of the series.

The only real niggle I had was the references to “he” and “him” when they clearly meant Superman; it seemed they were going out of their way not to mention the name. Oh, and the last scene where Kara’s evil aunt is revealed as the threat behind it all was hammed up terribly.

Still, like I said, an enjoyable first episode.
