Wimps, they would have never made it in Hong Kong cinema with that attitude. :D

 

 

 

    True, but in Hong Kong cinema it’s more of a

Kara (Melissa) got a little chubby again between seasons. And those bangs have got to go. Ugh! So ugly. And I'm not a huge fan of the new suit. I'm all for a super onesie, but something about the one they gave her just isn't flattering for some reason. And after bingeing eight seasons of Game of Thrones since seeing the last Supergirl episode from last season, the tonal shift (and overall stupidity level) gave me whiplash.

 

But I still can't quit her! Shakes fist at Melissa Benoist!

The new suit looks like a costume she wore in the early 1970s in Adventure comics, back when she was working for a San Francisco TV News Show.  The practical reason she went from skirt and pantyhose to pants was Canada is Cold.

Can't they make pants that look like pantyhose?

 

That's pretty much what they did for the first four seasons. Kara never had bare legs emerging from her (rather long) red superskirt; she always had pantyhose that kinda darkened her legs a bit. That combined with her knee-high boots meant that Supergirl's legs were never really exposed to the elements.

Well, we certainly want the actress to be comfortable during those cold Vancouver shoots. But I would expect a Kryptonian wearing a supersuit to have a much higher tolerance for extreme weather conditions.

Finished Season 4 two days ago. 

 

Edit: Two episodes to go be up to date. With marathoning the later half of Supergirl S03; last seasons of Arrow, Flash & Supergirl; and current to date seasons of Arrow & Flash, I’ve enjoyed Arrow & Flash much more than Supergirl. Supergirl just gets more laughably absurd each season. The MVP of Supergirl last season was Andrea Brooks (Eve) whose character got ruined in the current season.

So is Jimmy really off the show.

 

And I'll say this, at least the show has learned not to let plot threads linger too long.  We finally get to see Leviathan which turns out to be a let down (HYDRA it's not).

Starting to binge season 5. I love Katie McGrath, but I cannot stand her "I can't forgive Kara" thing. I realize they are playing up that to many people have lied to her, but she has always had her own secrets and understands loved ones being in danger. I really hope this is somehow the tapes of Lex manipulating her because he knew she would listen to them.

Sadly, I believe they are trying to make us believe that Lena really is that deeply wounded by being kept out of the We Know Supergirl's Secret Identity Club for so long. It is how they are explaining her soft villainy (i.e., not going Full Luthor) this season. Lex himself gets to have all the brutal, over-the-top masculine villainy while Lena gets to have the gentler, more feminine villainy whereby her not-so-evil agenda is to "make humans nicer to each other". I can't believe the execs at CW actually approved this season's premise and story arc. It's become this weepy, maudlin melodrama about a bunch of women who don't know how to have healthy relationships with each other (and I metaphorically include J'on J'onzz and his brother in that assessment).

 

Actually, Batwoman has been kinda the same so far as well. Are these two shows being written by the same person?

Lena’s soft villainy is far more insidious villainy than Lex’s last season. Lex manipulated people to be sure, and disasterously so, but they possessed freewill. And he didn’t devolve them into automatons. 

 

Lena is paving the highway to Hell with her “good” intentions.

I liked Mon-El. He went from spoiled frat boy to actually growing up quite a bit. I thought the actor did a good job with the comedic bits of the character.

 

I also like that he's gone. He had a decent arc, then left the show. I don't see much for him beyond what they did with him.

So, Batwoman was given a harsh lesson in constantly letting her sister go.

I still hate what they are doing with Lena, as of latest episode (though haven't finished it yet). Alex listing off all the times Lena lied and hid things just added to my point of her being ridiculous about being over the top upset about Supergirl not giving away her secret identity. I still have hopes that this is Lex somehow manipulating her through the Tessmacher bot and the records he left.
