I think everything was toned down a little bit here. Cat Grant is still un-watchable at times, it was however funny to hear Cat Grant say "Sick of hearing about the Man of Steel", which is something I think every viewer is thinking. But the over the top comedy mixed with the Full House cheesiness seems to be gone or at least significantly less present than last week. I still don't buy into the fact that Winn can hack into whatever the heck he was hacking into. Nor do I understand exactly the importance of Hank Henshaw's group to this show, but I'm willing to hang in there and give it a shot. I am however more interested in Kara's aunt and the potential enhanced presence of Maxwell Lord. Lord is a big character in the comics and is a potential villain that would make sense for Supergirl. That is if they make him a physical match.
Speaking of physical matches, I'm glad to see this show is using Kryptonite upfront because it's really the only way to humanize a Kryptonian. I'm hoping that they focus more on Kara vs these type of obstacles instead of the city's opinion of her. I understand it needs to eventually be addressed, but that whole story line this week felt rushed. It was like the city hated her one second and the next they loved her. In a normal world that would likely be more of a gradual thing.
The effects continue to impress at least for a TV show. I think the show looks twice as good as The Flash, probably due to a bigger budget. Still, it's something Supergirl deserves at least a little bit of credit. I am however skeptical of the decision to have the same actress play both Kara's aunt and mother. I understand they are twins, but I think it could get confusing for some viewers. I also don't think the show needed to reveal anything about Hank Henshaw this early on. Save that for a more dramatic time later. Overall though, it was an improvement over last week, but still a long way to go.
+Acknowledging the excessive Superman references is annoying
+Everything was toned down a bit..
-..Except for Cat Grant
-Revealing Henshaw a little early
-Gaining the city's trust back was too easy
