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)

the CW Invasion ~ Heroes vs Aliens


Based on the 1988 comic book miniseries Invasion! event from Keith Giffen, Bill Mantlo, Todd McFarlane, and Bart Sears, the plot of the story is The Dominators descended on Earth to bring an end to the “threat” of Earth’s burgeoning meta-human community.

So Supergirl kicks the whole thing off, however I don’t think I qualify it as cross over material. We just get what turns out to be a few time holes that pop into this scene or that and at the end (like the last 30 seconds…literally!) Barry and Sisco show up . For me that’s just a Supergirl episode, now if they had popped in half way through and participated more in the epiosde I would consider that a cross over. So as far as her episode goes, I’m not happy with it. If this were still on CBS I would chalk it up to that but sadly for me Barry and Sisco feel like they were just added to the story at the end and of course the time holes too. 

I will be re-watching the shows but this one I won’t as I do not recall anything in it having to do with the Aliens (aside from Supergirl herself and Mon-El)

 

I hope the Flash’s entry into the crossover event will be better.

Addition to Fall Preview

November 1st  The Librarians  8pm 2 hour season 2 premier

SuperGirl -doesn’t look so super as far as the CBS season preview. It definitely doesn’t stack up to Arrow’s action or Gotham’s storytelling. I won’t even mention Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.  being as Marvel is the King Midas of Comic adaptations well Minus that new garbage called Fantastic 4, I knew it wouldn’t do shit but then it wasn’t from Marvel Studios. The jury though I I think may still be out on Agent Carter, the midseason mini-series while agents is on hiatus. I think I heard mixed reviews and that the ratings were a bit low but will have another season. My question is, was it because it’s a woman character it was based around t as a ‘superhero’ or was it due to the dreary looking era in which it takes place?  A few of the comic series I hear of  on Netflix (or wherever) a few look better for network tv than supergirl .  If you have a DVR record this and watch when there’s nothing better on, like on holidays or during Hiatus.

2007 NR 1:28  Comedy

Director John Cosgrove’s debut stars Mike Vogel, Breckin Meyer, Mena Suvari, Callum Blue, Mark Pellegrino & Marsha Thompson, Andrew Lee Potts and Sonja Wagner

The hip Black Cat coffee house in London’s staff and clientele find their lives, jobs and relationships intermingling . Trouble begins when Rachel fires her chef boyfriend, to which gets them backlogged with orders. Drama ensues for each character one of which whose grandmother is there for her day out of the nutter house. Another (Breckin Meyer) is a wouldbe novelist trying to get his book published. Rachel as already mentioned has relationship trouble, even the diners have their own dramas going on. Sonja Wagner’s character is there with her controlling,possessive,  macho acting (but definitely not looking) boyfriend who gets jealous at anything. All situations are more or less funny but my favorite is the stoner characters played by Vogel and Potts.  Potts’ character’s stoner paranoia and the nutty grandma thinking he’s her husband. The best way to sum things up is forget about coffee , it’s a nut house with the beautifully decorated  not so padded walls (I love the Pillars and that big Dresser), there’s more misfits here than in a federal prison   C+

Invisible Review for the

The Invisible Man

1933 NR 1:11 b/w    Claude Rains    Cast   via DVD    1st watch (and likely will again)   Please Highlight starting here

Scientist Jack Griffin played by Claude Rains becomes invisible after an experiment goes awry and so hides out  in the Lion’s head inn . When employees and the tenants fail to give him peace he terrorizes the british village of Ipping. It’s too late  when he looks for help  thanks to an ingredient in the drug that helped make him invisible, which also makes one a homicidal maniac.The woman from the inn that shows the Invisible man his room, cracks me up. The hysterics and she looks like she should play the witch in Hansel and Gretel.

How did they make the Invisible man Invisible in this? You’ll have to rent it and watch the special features on the disk, its worth it.  Its so weird to see when the invisible man has only a shirt or only pants on,  so how did they make him invisible? There’s no blue or green screen in those days, I have to say this is definitely one of the classic movies that all should watch, especially those who grew up with the CGI FX.  (Yes depending on a movie’s budget depends on how good the graphics are but some are still crap looking for instance the 2015 version of Fantastic Four, I saw the Human Torch and the older one looked much better. If you are going to do something firey, just film some variations of real fire then paste it in. Don’t try to create it from scratch you can tell!

I think I’d have to say my favorite pars is the ‘haunted’ shirt (where the cops go to his room) and pants part (toward the end, when you ‘see’ him skipping! Oh and everytime he came out with that maniacal laugh. I’d hear it and would give me a tickle,guess that’s my morbid sense of humor getting the tickle.

The Invisible man  is a metaphor for the outcast      B+
