    The budget is supposed to be lower this season. Doesn't seem like it thus far. So far things look better.

    Maybe theyre able to invest more in Special Fx?

    Theyre filming in Canada now. Im sure California filming has more fees imposed on them as opposed to Canada.

    That's certainly part of it. I think the other part is the licensing fee. WB owns the Superman/Supergirl license. CBS had to play a substantial fee per episode to broadcast Super Girl. It think it was a million per episode. The CW is co-owned by the WB. So, I doubt they have to pay that fee. The budget may be lower, but they may actually have more to spend per episode.

    Doesn't CBS own CW?

    CBS is owned by Viacom. CW is owned by Warner Bros. Supergirl was only on CBS due to a special agreement between the two parent companies, which is now null and void.

    Rock hit the nail on the head. The CW is the result of the WB and UPN putting on Potara Earrings. As such it's 50% WB and 50% CBS.

    canadian govt gives you money to film there. everyone leaves cali cause its expensive as fuck. its pretty rare for movies and shows to film in cali anymore.

    Thanks for the correction, Rock. I thought it had fully went to WB after the merger.

    Actually CBS and WB Co-own CW

    While that's true, the move to the CW still could've reduced some kind of licensing fee. Moving the show to a network co-owned by WB could still be a benefit in that same way.

    CW really cleaning the house in just 2 episodes. Gotta give them props for that. Pretty smooth soft reboot.
    I intended to put Gohan into the leading role. It didn’t work out. I felt that compared to Goku, he was ultimately not suited for the part.

    Miss Martian and Mon-El. They pulling out all the stops. Edit: The lesbian cop is Batwoman's girlfriend. Well in the comics anyway.

    CW is all about job security. Your show gets cancelled? They'll find you something. Example....

    Yeah from what show is the lesbian detective?
  • Darc RequiemDarc Requiem The Light Emitting Darkness Joined: Posts: 8,980
    Looks like they are basically making Mon-El into Superboy. He can't fly. No heat vision or freeze breath.

    Was not feeling that Drega look at all. Dude looked like a drunk alien farmer that just finished a round of savage backhands to people stepping on his crops.

    So Alex is hot for Maggie but she's already spoken for. Whelp, that blonde will be dumped soon enough

    Miss Martian is a White Martian. Finding that out was a bout as shocking as finding out Annakin Skywalker grows up to be Darth Vader. Thank you, Young Justice!

    I'm waiting for Aqualad to show up and replace Jimmy. This whole Guardian thing seems like last ditch effort to keep him relevant in the show. He seems like a fish out of water. Everyone else that came over from season 1 seems to be better this year.

    Black jimmy dont fit. Not cos he is black but cos of the way he is portrayed. ie. overly confident.

    Mon-El needs a Netflix show. He isn't afraid of pussy.

    Cadmus just took Mon-El......maybe he'll get full Superboy powers as a side effect?

    Dang, Alex got friend zoned.

    So is Alex officially out of the closet or she is batting for both teams?

    Seems like she's out of the closet to me.

    I also find it funny that Lena was/is giving off lesbian vibes towards Kara...but...we all know that's a setup. And it sucks that Alex got friend-zoned like that but something tells me Maggie is a player.



    Edit : I am definitely into the Alex lesbian storyline now. LOL!!!

    If they're going the super boy route with Mon-El, they should give the dude telekinesis.
    Make him a little more useful. They even gave Jimmy a purpose....besides being female eye candy.

    If they are going to make him weak to lead. He should have the same powers as Superman and Supergirl. Lead is so damned common. At least he seems immune to Kryptonite. That gives him some limited use. Superman hid/destroyed all of the known Kryptonite.

    That indirect reference to Batman

    Nth Metal and Thanagar name drops. Maybe Supergirl can get the awesome space cop versions of Hawkman and Hawkgirl. Erase the trash we got in Legends.

    Kara is dumb as fuck. Mama Luthor let her out of the cage without restraint to put on a helmet. Kara should have fucked up the guards and mama Luthor before they could fill up Mon-El with lead.

    She still playing checkers instead of chess. Way too trusting of people. She might wise up a bit once she gets put through a real trial.

    But I don't know if this show will go there. As campy as the Flash can be, there are times when shit gets real. When Barry screws up, there will always be blowback.
