    I haven't seen Arrow or Flash but after 10 years of Smallvile I'll never watch a CW show again. I imagine the purpose is to get people like myself and the CBS audience to check out the show.

    I felt the same way after I had to give up on Smallville, but Arrow and The Flash are legit.

    Arrow is legit until Season 3.

    Also the same studio making Flash and Arrow is making this, and if the universe isn't shared, there could still be crossovers ala Power Girl shenanigans.

    The ugg boots are strong with this show. lol

    2nd promo is better, but eh. They really made supergirl as uninteresting as possible in those promos. "LIKE, OMG, how can i balance work and totally being a superhero. Let me ask my gay bff what to do. O M G"

    I don't think this will end well for them... one reason being the typical CBS audience... it still has that nasty stigma of being "The Old Folks' Network". I don't think the grandparents across America are down to watch Supergirl on a regular basis, and the younger generations are already hooked on CW for superhero and supernatural stuff. The audiences just don't match up here.

    At least she's fairly cute... but even there... CW has perfected the eye-candy game too. The girls on the various CW shows tend to be the cream of the crop....no other networks can fuck with the kind of quality sex appeal they're putting on the table every week. Actually, now that I think about it... CBS is about dead last in that category, and it always has been.

    Flash is actually pretty good. This looks like hot garbage though.

    I never rated a pilot highly, this one is 5/10. I'm okay with the girly and cute stuff but the clichés were too much, then the completely different atmosphere when she puts the suit on kept me in.
    Melissa is cute and Jimmy, please go away. There's potential, I'm optimistic for the serie as a whole. In the end I kinda enjoyed it, it was just hard during some scenes.
    I hope we'll get crossovers with Arrow and Flash.

    And it's a pile of shit, really bad start to the show.
    If you are a Gilmore girls type drama fan it might appeal to you.

    Also since when is Jimmy Olson like 6'4 and 230?

    Watched the pilot myself. It wasn't bad. The chick flick stuff gets downplayed quickly and the mood of the show takes a shift once she adapts the costume. I enjoyed it enough to give a second episode a watch.

    They had to make Jimmy Olson the all knowing dude who looks like he has the same build as superman himself?

    According to this show Superman has been active for over a decade. At this point Jimmy should be all knowing. He's been with Superman long enough to act as a mentor. I'm just mad the show is using Toyman to fill Jimmy's traditional role.

    We can still judge the quality without being the core audience.

    Not even remotely the same thing. I don't even own a Nintendo system and I know Zelda's audience is very broad. This isn't for a broad audience. A better example is comparing this to a show meant for 5 year olds.

    The show looks awful and the reviews haven't strengthen my optimism.

    If you like pegging and are interested in lowering your testosterone I guess show would make sense. As it stands this thread shouldn't exist since it's not worth our time or energy.

    pegging?!!!

    Your opinion is pretty stupid and immature.

    It's gonna suck for Superman to be a character we won't fully see or interact with Kara. His overprotective nature over her is one of the things I like about their relationship.

    I thought the pilot was ok. Chick flick stuff disappears once Kara decides to be a hero, the story moves in a fast pace and it does a decent job in establishing Kara and her cast. Even though the chick stuff is downplayed it still does all it can to appeal to the female audience it wants to attract. Kara made me facepalm hard when she argued with Cat over the name Supergirl. The action was disjointed and the cliffhanger at the end didn't have the punch such a reveal should have. It was good enough for me to check out a second episode.

    My own personal headcanon is that superman sent her to be raised by his time displaced self from another universe, just to explain why her dad is Lois and Clark Superman.
    You can't ask for well-thought-out changes off day 1, week 1, or mostly even month 1 play...and that's when the game is out and everyone's in the lab.

    Finished the pilot. Feels like they tried to cram in bits of character development that could have been better served if they were spaced out in the series. I wonder if they'll rewrite these for the actual series (as some series are wont to do) instead of just sticking with the pilot as the first episode(s) of the show.

    Costume needs some more work. The S feels just wrong without the yellow in between the red bits. Also, not digging the cape she gets in the end. Wish they didn't add the leggings, seeing Melissa Benoist's creamy white thighs gave me a fizzy feeling down below (but then again, I got that white fever bad).

    Obviously a fake family set up to make her grow up in the most ideal circumstances. I mean, weirder things have happened in the comics.

    It was an ok pilot. I'm not a huge Superman guy, never really cared for the mythos. But it was better than what I expected so I guess that counts a little bit. I'll watch the 2nd episode whenever it airs, but most likely I'll probably ignore it. Melissa Benoist is super fucking cute, and plays the role well. Fun fact, she had leaked photos during the fappening.

    I actually liked the tone somewhat. Way better than what they did for the Man of Steel.

    The light somewhat cheesy tone of the show is definitely one of it's upsides. It's what I wanted from Man of Steel.

    So ive watch this show again (saw it when it first hit the net)maybe 5 times in the last 2 weeks, and i'll try to give my opinion on it now, months later. lol

    One thing i dont like, that man of steel didnt do either, was give supergirl super speed. Its like its either or. I understand why smallville chose it over flying, because of the budget and technical limitations then, but i'd like to see some super speed used in supergirl hopefully, and not just her always having to fly to get around, or during fights.

    The tone fits the show, but i like that there are darker moments lighting wise. Pretty solid fights that should get better, and pretty decent use of cgi for a tv show budget.

    I loathe the couple feminist jokes and generally input of sexism issues the women are facing, or think they are facing. Its like when larry wilmore constantly has to talk about race, and youre just like, can i please just watch a show without you bringing this up everytime. Like can i please just watch supergirl without some, oh, you dont think i can do it because im a girl bullshit. Like seriously, we cant just have a show without turning it into some social commentary that doesnt even fit.

    I do like that shes gonna be getting dicked down by a black guy at least for season 1, and supergirl is pretty hot. When she was going through her costume changes, i was like god damn, the body on her is pretty nice.

    Overall, im gonna peep it. It does have that cheesy cbs shit in it kinda, where youre like, who the fuck wrote this, but i can get over it.

    Also, it doesnt seem that its gonna be doing a smallville kinda thing, where a lot of smallville is just clarks regular life, with arcs of more comic related stuff going down. Supergirl, like arrow, and flash, seem to be just going straight for comic story arcs, and little about the day to day stuff. I kinda liked that about smallville, because you would get light hearted episodes fairly often.

    My favorite scenes were the costume change, plane save, and when she was going to a call about a fire. The way they slowed her down giving the view of the city at night, as she listened to see where the firefighters sirens were coming from, was pretty cool.
