I started watching Supergirl series on CBS few weeks ago. I find it much improve storyline after Supergirl (1984) film. Supergirl stars Melissa Benoist as Kara Danvers, Superman’s cousin who struggle to find her place in life without stepping in her cousin’s shadow. Mehcad Brooks, Chyler Leigh, Jeremy Jordan, David Harewood, and Calista Flockhart are also the stars found in this series.
Just today, CBS just announced that they have ordered seven more episode to give it a full first season run of 20 episodes. It was reported that Supergirl has stellar performance in the ratings with over 11 million viewers since Oct. 26 premiere.
One thing that did threw me off since this is a new TV series that has no cross-reference with Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman. I did find it bit funny that Dean Cain is in this series as Kara’s Adoptive Father, Fred Danvers. It does throw you off time to time when you think it’s Superman when he is not in this series.
There has been rumor where there will be a crossover of Supergirl, Flash, and Arrow. I wonder how all that will work but I know it will be interesting episodes to watch.
Supergirl airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on CBS. Check out the First Look on Supergirl below.
