well the first few seasons were ok but since that irish lady ( Katie MCGrath?) went all petulant over not being told supergirls's real identity and her sister being dressed in black leather and that horrible eye makeup and that little runt who started off as an I.T person but became silly main player its all gone to pot. And Supergirl is looking a bit old also and supergirl in pants is not supergirl but Captain Marvel? I thought when that happened its days were numbered, just as well she is having a baby

I'll just say, thank God! As much a fan I am, I couldn't stand Supergirl, but I fear the new Superman & Louis show is going to end up as bad as this.

So season 6 will be the last for Supergirl.
Melissa Benoist has just had a kid and the shows ratings have been falling.

I haven't seen anything even vaguely interesting on the Super-Hero front lately; so far they're all over-earnest, unrealistically naive, hyper-privileged crybabies brimming with impeccable moral high ground. That's boring & presents a detrimentally narrow view of ethics & society. Arrow is better about it, but my god, the writing for the secondary characters is SO BAD!)


You sound like you haven't seen DareDevil or Jessica Jones, they are definitely not like you described.

ProphetZarquon: I agree overall, i dropped the flash due to annoying cast and boring characters overall. Even dropped Arrow after a few seasons, since it became a love com, but it had some interesting aspects at least.

Now, with Supergirl there isn't anything holding me to the show other than... The main actress? She plays Supergirl well, oh and she is adorable! I guess her boss is tolerable as well. The rest is mainly garbage.

There's a long Hollywood tradition of having 20-something actors & actresses playing teenagers. From 21 Jump Street, to the more relevant example, Smallville. I don't think casting a show about a teenager would be a problem, nor do I think there's any lack of audience (30-somethings watch shows about teenagers all the time, it's one of the most popular genres).

Demographics won't help much when they ruin the central premise of a story with enormous structural changes.

They've glossed right over the loss of her Kryptonian/Argosian society, the transition from fitful emotional selfish child to reasoning adult, exploring her evolving ethos compared to the rigidity of Kal-El's, & she even has a fully-realized alter ego already.

With Spider-Man, half the fun is watching Peter try to get & keep a terrible job & develop a social life. Agents of SHIELD has a large cast playing off each-other's strengths & weaknesses. Young Clark doesn't fit in no matter how much he downplays or utilizes his abilities. Kara just excels at everything within a single episode.

(I won't go into The Flash, because I really wanted to like that show, but the writing & casting are very bad; especially the bit-part villains. Arrow seems to be of a higher quality overall, but ultimately I find it boring & a few characters are so one-dimensional it hurts my eyes.)

Where's the hook? What is the crux of the dramatic narrative? I don't see anything of interest going on *except* cross-over events & that's a very bad sign.

The animated version of Supergirl was worlds better, in my opinion. This show has zero appeal to me; It appears to have been chewed up & regurgitated by some marketing panel. I'm waiting for something with more meat left on its metaphorical bones.

(The Expanse is a very interesting attempt at "hard sci-fi", the first example I can think of in a long time. The speculative element which might be considered the most far-fetched is the existence of some unexplained nanotech experiment, which as yet hasn't been shown doing anything to defy physics & remains an unknown, secret high-level tech even within their fictional universe. Compare to Dark Matter, which is about as fictional as you can get without crossing from sci-fi into fantasy. I haven't seen anything even vaguely interesting on the Super-Hero front lately; so far they're all over-earnest, unrealistically naive, hyper-privileged crybabies brimming with impeccable moral high ground. That's boring & presents a detrimentally narrow view of ethics & society. Arrow is better about it, but my god, the writing for the secondary characters is SO BAD!)

The show was initially produced by CBS, that would explain why the feel of the show doesn't match either Arrow (CW) or AoS (ABC)

The young adult demo is commercially much more profitable than the teen demo. Arrow, Flash and AoS have proven that young adult based show are popular and can make money....TV is a business and unless you have the 50 million it takes to produce one, be happy we are getting decent comic book TV shows at all.

Basically if they stick to the comics and have her as a teenager and it doesn't make money, it will most likely have terrible ratings and get cancelled and is a huge waste of time....plus how many true teenager actresses are there that can carry a successful network show on their talent? ....none.

Its not all doom and gloom though, Supergirl has been sold to CW now for season 2 so we will definitely be getting more Flash crossovers and maybe the feel/mood of the show will shift as well.

The short of it is, TV is a business and they will do whatever they think it make them the most money, either accept it as it is and watch it, or don't.

I do not understand the appeal of this show.
First off, the premise of Supergirl is that she's a *teenage girl*.
A 24 year old is a woman; Certainly a young woman, but a woman nonetheless. In the proper canon, Kara arrived as a teenager & had to learn to deal with having new powers at a pivotal time in her maturation.

This show skips all of that & jumps to a young woman with a job (not high school) & is decidedly dealing with young adult issues, not teenage ones. Removing that basically leaves you with the same formula as every other superhero show on TV (including cancelled ones).

The show should probably be called Superwoman, because it has nothing to do with being a teenager.

Secondly, Agents of SHIELD is incredibly campy & presented very tongue-in-cheek, whereas Arrow & Flash are (for me) painfully earnest. This show seems to take itself as seriously as Arrow, yet has all the undistinguished acting & hackneyed writing of Legends of Tomorrow.

I know it's broadcast TV, but this stuff is terrible! It's enough to make me wish the CW would stop producing superhero shows, or at least pack them into one production run, so we can have more crossover & fewer filler episodes. Maybe if the CW cancels a few (most?) another network will feel there's enough desaturation to launch something that's actually good.

Really, the actress is cute, not the worst portrayal either, but why didn't they make an actual *girl* show? "Supergirl" was a hilarious character, constantly surprising or even one-upping her older counterparts. Making her an adult basically just turns her into yet another overpowered, cluelessly privileged, run-of-the-mill superhero.

Could have been awesome. Might as well watch Smallville reruns: They're written better & actually have teenaged characters. This whole show feels like half-hearted pandering that doesn't really connect.
