While Roulette's debut on Supergirl was rather procedural, the writer's managed to created a confident portrayal of the character with some good dialogue and a promise of a future conflict between Kara and her. As for M'gann, maybe its the young justice fan in me, but I'm not really loving her grittier portrayal, but even in spite of that, the writers have done a good job of keeping me invested. Her interactions with J'onn compliment each other's characters rather well by enriching their believability as the last survivors of Mars, and it was nice to learn more about Martian culture.
The standouts for this episode were primarily from the fun character moments between Mon-El, Winn and Kara. Chris Wood's portrayal of the Daxamite continues to leave me entertained and intrigued about this season's direction, and the writers are doing a great job of making me care about the character. I'd also like to say hats off to the writers and new staff for vastly improving upon last season's tedious drama. Not only is it fun to watch these kind of fun scenes like Winn and Mon-El hitting up the National City bars, but they in turn favour the show when more serious subjects are introduced because the audience cares about the characters.
+ Miss Martian / Martian Manhunter
+ Journalist Kara and Snapper Carr
+ Maggie Sawyer and Alex are growing on me ;)
-Still unsure of Lena Luthor's position in the show
-M'gann's characterization may disappoint Young Justice fans
-Could have had a stronger introduction to Roulette
It was still a really enjoyable episode: 8.2/10
