Here's to Beauty and an extraordinary energy. (Benoist groupie!)
I will ignore all the other reviews: the political sensitivities of the reviewers are made obvious to the world through their reviews. (Although I applaud the production team for an episode that triggered so many extremist weirdos to burst out of their camouflage skins and reveal their true appearances! Very Joss Whedon!) For me the stand-out point here is the opportunity to hear Melissa Benoist's singing voice again. From the moment she burst into the cast of Glee, it was obvious that she was going places. For me, the positive energy she radiated was a blessed shower of spring rain on what had become a very entertaining but somewhat plodding show. Were I a producer who happened to see Glee s4.1, and I was trying to line up a series written around Supergirl, I think I would have got my chequebook out immediately. I guess I'm a little surprised that she made it partway through season five before being snapped up. In Glee she showed that she can energise and touch us through her singing and dancing. In Supergirl she has been able to take us deeper into emotions, particularly through her relationships with her sister Alex and her mother Eliza. (And kudos to Chyler Leigh and Helen Slater for supporting these storylines so convincingly.) Other (romantic) relationships seem somehow superficial and irrelevant. May she (Ms Benoist) continue to energise and touch our souls for many decades to come.
