Hesitant about linking to AV Club after the awful redesign, but I still like the writers so...
AV Club: B+
#3.02 "Triggers" Promo ()Yael in all that leather!
My thoughts: Yay emo Supergirl. That worked out really well for Flash. Yes what separates her from Clark is a repressed rage and a slightly more pragmatic nature but don't have that devour the character.
Erica Durance doesn't have the same mature, motherly look that Laura Benanti has. I thought Kara was going to kiss her in that opening sequence good grief. Also Erica doesn't even get a special guest credit.
Poor Adrian Pasdar can't top Rutger Hauer's Morgan Edge. But I wouldn't expect him to. Lena's roast on his charisma was great.
Katie McGrath still can't keep her accent or attraction to Melissa hidden. She bought CatCo as a relationship gift ffs.
Poor Odette playing Davis Bloome. Her scream acting wasn't great.
Statue wasn't as bad as Laurel's on Arrow at least.
Show still not subtle about Trump hate. Good.
Episode was okay overall. Show still isn't quite sure what it is, but it has a handle on Alex, Maggie and J'onn at least. Winn is full time comic relief now I suppose? Basically... the show needs Mon-El back.
You were so right, and then the last thing you said was oh so wrong.
Mon-El was a plague on the show and I am super happy that he is now gone. Whoever the writers pair Kara with next NEEDS to be much better thought out and written than the last 3 attempts.
So the second gif is straight up Superman Returns, right? Along with the machine gun guy?
