    Awesome. I know some people don’t like the show, but I’ve enjoyed it almost as much as The Flash. Looking forward to what they do with season 2.

  • Carl

    Glad to hear it. I’ll be watching.

    I’m curious about the opinion of the people who kept following the show. Has the show became much better with time? I’ve watched the first 3 episodes and came back for that Bizarro episode, and I was very underwhelmed with what I saw so I stopped watching. I remember being underwhelmed by the first few episodes of the Flash too, but I came back to it once everyone was raving about it and now it’s one of, if not my favorite show right now. I’m just wondering if Supergirl is taking a similar trajectory? I’m wondering if it’s worth giving it another shot.

      The past couple episodes have been great. There are a couple episodes that I haven’t been overly positive about but the number one thing that keeps me coming back is how awesome Supergirl (the character) actually is. Melissa Benoist is really awesome in the role and I’d probably keep watching for her even if I didn’t like the show. But there’s Martian Manhunter too, and that’s super fun.

      Also I’ll just say that I didn’t really like the Bizarro one but there are a lot of solid episodes. The best ones feel like classic Superman stories.

  • Triggy Kor-el

    Very positive news for the fans who truly follow the show.
