Why does this mess continue to infect the airwaves?!
OK, I am a comic book nut.
I've been reading them as long as I can remember. When the wife and I go food shopping, she gets the groceries and I bee-line to the comic book rack. I've been hooked for over sixty years. When the promo mini pilot came out I really had high hopes for this endeavor. Linda Carter hung up her golden tiara decades ago and the 1984 Supergirl movie was pretty bad, so I was hoping that since one of the big three was picking this series up, the writers would remember , or do a little homework, to find out which parts made past super heroine's movies and shows great, and what parts made them stink!
Did the writers even read the comics, or any other source material, at all, EVER!
I've made it thru episode eight, and that's as far as I can go.
No more, dammit!
These weekly plots are so god awful they make my brain hurt. The acting is simply atrocious. The person or persons in charge of casting should be taken out and shot! The entire cast seems to be phoning in their lines. There is no "feminist agenda" that I saw other reviewers complain about. Not when the most powerful woman on Earth is a fawning eight year old begging for the father figure of the week's attention and approval. About the only thing that I can give as pass on are the cheap, cheesy special affects, this being TV, small screen and all.
I could go on, but I'd just be rehashing other reviewers and I don't think I have enough antacid in the medicine cabinet to chance any deeper level of stomach upset than I already have.
All this promise and potential, but like my stomach contents, down the freaking toilet!!!
Switch to IZombie. It has its stumbling moments, but all in all, its far superior to the disaster called Supergirl.
