Discuss: CBS' Supergirl
Doug: I've only seen about the first 2/3 of the show -- but I'd like to finish it. This show is the breath of fresh air DC has needed (admittedly I don't watch the Flash). What I saw was light, perfect fare for the 7:00 hour. And Melissa Benoist is charming in the lead role, both as Kara Danvers as well as our heroine. She looks great in the suit as well -- and I understand why they went with the tights after seeing a few of the flight sequences. There's a cute nod to the fashions of superhero women (see below). I couldn't figure out, however, why no one could utter the name "Superman". It's not like he's Y_HW_H or anything... Some of the plot seemed like it was getting a little wonky, and as I mentioned I'll need to find time to finish my viewing. But overall I thought I liked what I did see. Your thoughts?
