The president's "Alien Amnesty Act" is described as an executive order: a change imposed solely by the executive branch of the U.S. government. But the term "act" refers to a law passed by Congress, the legislative branch. See more »


Alex Danvers: What is this place?
Maggie Sawyer: It's a safe haven. Place for off-world'ers to hang out, have a drink. Not feel so alone for a minute.
Alex Danvers: So, this is where you get all your information about the alien populace in National City.
Maggie Sawyer: They also make mean peach mojito.

Too Much Politics
11 April 2018 | by See all my reviews

This was the episode of Supergirl that made me cancel it off my DVR schedule. I don't like getting beat over the head by politics in shows, particularly when handled so dishonestly. I started watching it again on Netflix because I was hoping this episode might be an aberration (it generally was).

Lynda Carter still looks great, but she turned in a performance here so poor, it's difficult to explain. Her lines were read like she was having trouble seeing the cue cards.

On a positive note, the action in Supergirl is really well handled - brisk and violent - and Melissa is fabulous as always. Lena Luthor is a welcome addition to the show and mesmerizes in every scene she's in. Easily reason enough to keep watching. It's almost like they added her when they figured out Lynda Carter couldn't cut it.
