Supergirl


While Supergirl was on CBS, the only episode I watched was the Flash crossover. being as I watch Flash I figured it might be a good idea to watch in case something carries over from the Supergirl episode. With this one episode..

To me in the coming attractions and even this one episode I really could not stand the actress that played Supergirl,to me she came off as insecure/self conscious and there was something else I  still can’t quite pinpoint what it is or was, I could barely watch crossover episode, even with Flash in it.  Also I wasn’t crazy about the overall pace and storyline of the cross over.

So maybe others felt the same way as I in one way or another, and so with the show

Now on the CW for season 2, I thought I’d give it a try (well when its posted to the free on demand channel)

I still can’t figure out why CBS had the show in the first place, especially when all the DC comics shows are doing so well on the CW.

before I get to Supergirl herself  I will say I definitely did not like the actor portraying Superman…in this. I do wish ‘Smallville’ would make an appearance in some way ..sorry I should say Tom Welling and anyone else from that show, After all, this is a multi-earth/dimension universe. Well so far no ‘Smallville’ but we get Dean Cain!!!

So far she still comes off as… maybe its not insecurity but awkward to me and that’s WHEN she’s Supergirl. This is even as I finish writing this up in March (of season 2 with the finale likely to air in May). I would think the ‘Awkward’ and anything I didn’t like about a character or actor would have subsided by now. I do in a sense like the actress, she’s cute Kara wise, even when she’s perky and I hate perky but for her it works. There is still a little something there that bothers me when she’s Supergirl. I will also say the show is a lot easier to watch than when it was on  CBS.

Well if I didn’t watch it before or skipped an episode here and there… I’ve been making sure  I watch each week now that the charming Chris Wood (Vampire Diaries, Containment) in blatant CW fashion has yet again recycled (or is it re-purposed) him into another CW show. For him I’ll watch and see how his story arc goes. Plus I’m waiting for more crossovers of the collective shows…

I heard something about a possible musical but I don’t recall if it was flash and supergirl (which sounds really annoying to me) or maybe the crossover (nope… thankfully)… but I think a musical episode would have been better with Arrow (as long as John Barrowman was in it)

I do hope we get a mini movie with all the heroes in one show (one epiosde) at some point…maybe a 2 hour TV movie special. That would work well as a follow up on (or lead up to) a crossover story or the best way is to finish a season, and even better use for a series finale!

Hello @CW @DC do you hear me!!!! I’ve got some ideas for your show(s)!!! Make.It. Happen.!!!!

(Can we make the #ArrowMusical happen?  I saw @Stephen Amell & @JohnBarrowman singing at SDCC   (San Diego Comic Con)…

Definately IMPROVED (and saved)

 Fear is viral, Hope is Contagious

To start, I was sick of seeing the coming attraction for it. Over hype can lead to  no ‘hype’  or shall I say no Buzz. Buzz is better than hype. Buzz is basically us telling friend and family how great a movie is like Deadpool which could have fallen flat but was Awesome! That is the difference between Buzz & Hype the media creates hype (before and after a movie or series is released.)The Batman vs Superman movie was over hyped, it was the movie I was excited for until they showed the trailer EVER. Commercial. Break. to the point I no longer wanted to see it in the theater as I figured with the over hype that meant the whole movie was in the trailer. (Not quite but close enough) over hype can create weariness, weariness (doubt) can make your movie (or whatever) bomb.

ok so with that…

The first episode starts with a scene of things to come from Day 13 of the contagion. Then we start from the beginning where Jana is trying to pack to move in with her boyfriend Alex. Alex is called to work along with his friend Jake played by Chris Wood who has to go track down who is thought to be patient zero.

Walking Dead fans (like myself) may have a ironic laugh as for one they are in Atlanta and two they show the CDC…. sadly we are not headed (so it looks) for the zombie apocalypse in this.

Oh and maybe I should put a bit of a warning in this as well for those with sensitive stomachs…

There are images of Blood, Puss and gore. The image to your right is a cold compared to some of the other victims it has shown

Episode 2 is Night one of the infection   where it is made official that from infection to death takes 48 hours while they autopsy patient zero.

One thing that has annoyed the hell out of me with this… WHY hasn’t the cop (who played the Gemini twin in Vampire Diaries)  put on a medical mask under his helmet’s it’s plastic and doesn’t come down far enough for my taste. Then there’s the woman taking care of the kids… with the medical gloves on… (instead of using a new pair) pops a poll or 2  eww  just nasty I’d want a box of them gloves of my own and one for the room or maybe change the gloves each hour. No I’m not some germaphobe but with a viral infection that is contracted as easily and fast as this one… I’d want my own hazmat suit if I had to be in a room of kids because as far as I’m concerned.. every last one of them has it. I say this because once I graduated school I never got sick, the only time I got sick after that was when I was working (around other people who came into work while sick)

Plus I’d ask for pitchers of orange juice and pomegrante juice and anything else esp. dark chocolate which has antioxidants!

Ok enough of that… I forget the cops name but I am liking how he is handling the public, I just wish and think the government should divulge a bit more information (at least what they have) because I see that’s when people panic more.

The show is a mini series so whether you watch now or save it for a binge or to watch an episode a day (hey all of you… do NOT erase your spouse or siblings DVR programs! )  It’s a save when there’s less to watch on like this time of year when your shows are sa confusing mess of what already had their season finale and which ones are still on, plus even when things settle and there’s not as many interesting shows on.  same for Syfy’s Hunters!
