They say it gets drastically better
It gets less cringy, though I'm not sure if that's because it actually
gets less cringy or because you build a tolerance. Not particularly better, and it doesn't really stop being preachy either. There's a Flash / Supergirl crossover, and it's kind of cute. Maximum Awkward Geekiness between Barry and Kara. Really, the only thing I enjoy about Supergirl are the little Easter Eggs it offers to geeks, like the whole Red Kryptonite episode is full of 'em.
Welcome back to the Forum of Misfit Toys.
Definitely the tolerance thing. It got mildly better - a couple of scenes were pretty great - but overall the CGI, writing, and some of the acting is still ****. So far I'm just hanging on for more snarky one-liners from Calista Flockhart's character, Kitty, or whatever her strong, independent woman name is. Not only did the preaching not stop, it got stronger. Lois Lane's Latina sister at one point says: "I'd rather work for a strong woman like you than a bunch of old white men." I threw up a little in my mouth.
And it annoys me to no end that none of them know how to keep a secret. 10 episodes in, and Supergirl has already revealed her identity to more people than Iron Man. Well, almost. And it's not even cleverly written, it's just some stupid "Well, I'm Supergirl, whoops, did I say Supergirl? I mean, I'm a super... girl. Yay, girl power! No? Okay, I'm Supergirl, you got me!" And every goddamn time someone criticizes Supergirl in front of Kara, she jumps on the box and starts defending Supergirl's actions, even when Supergirl was wrecking **** left and right she was all "Well, did you ever consider that maybe she did it for a reason? Maybe she's doing her best? Maybe, if I was her, I'd have done the same." Does she not grasp the concept of secret identities?
TL;DR: Show was written by a bunch of socially awkward teen girls who've spent too much time on Tumblr.
Oh, and thanks, but I never left. Edited, Apr 10th 2016 2:33am by Mazra
