As the summer television hiatus fast approaches, our DCTV shows are fast approaching their season’s end. For some, like Arrow, that signals a huge change coming in the form of losing the heart of your show in Felicity Smoak. For others, like Flash, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow, it’s the end of one chapter and theRead More →

As Kara decides to hang up her Supergirl cape, for now, a new hero stepped into the light in this week’s all-new episode of Supergirl, appropriately titled “American Dreamer.” In this fictional reality that has unfolded this season, things have gotten pretty bleak. Lex Luthor is running free, people believeRead More →

Everyone has a weakness. That one thing that can affect you like nothing else. And it tends to stem from an emotional place. In Supergirl’s latest episode, “Crime and Punishment,” there was a focus on these characters’ Kryptonites — the things that can emotionally compromise them. Be it a familyRead More →

We all have them, those couples we wish a show had given us, the OTPs that didn’t end up happening. They don’t even have to be couples the show was actually hinting at, but just two people we saw together and went, hmmm, this could work, for whatever reason. OftenRead More →

Whatever has happened with Supergirl over these past two weeks has been truly a godsend and has found a way to spark a fire underneath this show. Obviously that spark has been the addition of Lex Luthor, who has showed himself to be the true villain of Supergirl’s fourth season.Read More →

Supergirl returned from a two-week hiatus just in time to celebrate Valentine’s Day in its own unique way. Heart-eating alien, anyone? I don’t know about you, but that just screams Valentine’s Day perfection. In “Menagerie,” Supergirl and co. dealt with the aforementioned heart-eating alien as Kara continued to struggle withRead More →

I’ve got a love/hate relationship with Supergirl this season. On one hand, I love how they’re tackling realistic politics in the Children of Liberty storyline. Not to mention the introduction of Nia Nal, who’s been a breath of fresh air. On the other hand, I hate the direction they’ve chosen to goRead More →

Supergirl returned with a midseason premiere that forever changed the course of the season. One decision — an unnecessary one, if you ask me — set an unexpected course for the backhalf of season four where once again Kara’s emotional strength will be tested. In “Suspicious Minds,” Colonel Haley setRead More →

As a fan of all these DC television shows, I understand the hype and thrill that comes with these annual crossovers. Bringing together prominent figures in DC Comics for these epic battles pulled right from the comics. Allowing these characters to interact in a way that feels epic beyond belief.Read More →

Just like clockwork, it’s about time for The CW’s annual DCTV crossover event, which will bring together characters from Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl in a unique way. In Elseworlds, Oliver Queen and Barry Allen have switched places, which means Oliver is The Flash and Barry is Green Arrow. They team up with Supergirl to figureRead More →

Supergirl continues to, shockingly, have me completely enthralled this season. And it has nothing to do with romance (not that there’s anything wrong with that) and everything to do with how Supergirl’s reality is reflective of the reality we live in. Just like I’m so enraptured by the news andRead More →

“Heroes go out there even when they know something bad is going to happen,” James Olsen told Nia Nal. “That’s what makes them heroes.” If there was ever a quote to encapsulate everything that comes with Supergirl or any other superhero series, it’s that one. Somewhere in the middle ofRead More →

To say that Supergirl’s newest episode was difficult to watch would be selling it short. But that’s what happens when art imitates life so terrifyingly accurately that you feel it in your bones. You begin to wonder what’s the next horrific storyline we’ll see covered. Because that means that it’sRead More →

Supergirl got surprisingly real in its latest episode, “Fallout,” where the parallel between this fictional reality and our very real reality is getting eerily too close to home. And you know what, that’s exactly what we need right now. What we need are entertainment mediums – all mediums, really –Read More →

Supergirl’s season 4 premiere was good. But it wasn’t great. It wasn’t The Flash, which jumped out with a thrilling premiere that seemed to get back to the heart of the show: family. Supergirl’s season premiere wasn’t disappointing. It just wasn’t as impactful. There was a time when Mondays couldn’tRead More →

Premiere week is here for the CW, and that means our favorites (or not so favorites, but hey, some of us want to hold onto hope) superhero shows are back, starting with The Flash, which premieres Tuesday, October 9th. Before they all come back, though, we want to take aRead More →
