TV Review : Supergirl : Season 2 : Episode 1 : The Adventures of Supergirl

Up Up and Away Super Friends and DC Comics Fans it’s time for another Season of Supergirl reviews and I will be reviewing the Season 2 Premier of Supergirl Season 2 Episode 1 The Adventures of Supergirl. 1st a description of the episode : Supergirl and Superman (Clark Kent) team up to stop a new threat emerging in National City; Alex feels left out while Kara’s family stays in town; a pod comes crashing down to earth. Now on to my review of the episode Warning Full Spoilers To Follow , Wow great Season 2 Premier of Supergirl on The CW !!! The Adventures of Supergirl was good, had some humor , action packed , intense and emotional. Supergirl , Superman and The DEO really had their hands full dealing with Lena Luthor and this new threat Metallo. Now in this season premier we notice that with a new network in The CW things have changed in Season 2 but not too much. We pick up right where Season 2 left off and who was in the pod and we find out it s Mon-EL. Plus we get introduced to a new DEO building and we realize their are many DEO facilities not just the one we saw in Season One. Also we notice that Winn is now working for The DEO and not Katco anymore but then we don’t see him that much in the episode that I was not bothered by too much however I can see why that’s an issue to some. The highlight of the episode is Supergirl and Superman working together as a team. Superman / Clark Kent played by Tyler Hoechlin is super amazing as Supes this is a Superman we have waited to see on screen in ether TV or Film for a long time a Superman who is hopeful  , happy , charming and he’s a hero to many. Also the chemistry between Tyler and Melissa Benoist as Supergirl / Kara Danvers is amazing so many good scenes together. When Superman did his heroics I was like yeah that is the Superman I remember. Tyler’s Superman is like Christopher Reeve’s take on the character but with a modern sense to Supes which I wish honestly we would see more of with Henry Cavil in The DC Comics DCEU Films so I’m glad Tyler is giving us a awesome take on Superman / Clark Kent. Melissa Benoist as Supergirl / Kara Danvers she’s so super amazing as always and you get the sense in this episode she has grown as a character and managing her life as Kara and Supergirl and her promotion to reporter at CatCo was good. Also Cat Grant was so amazing in this episode and  Calista Flockhart is so good in this role her scenes with Kara was amazing her having the hot’s for Clark Kent wow that was strange and funny at the same time. Hope Lois Lane does not find out Cat want’s Clark that’s all I will say. Some other good performances as well from the other members of the cast. Also the many callbacks and references to Superman The Movie (1978) amazing also so cool to here from Lena and Cat say Miss Tessmacer !!! so cool. Lena Luthor an interesting character you don’t know if she is good or bad but I will say once a Luthor always a Luthor always a Luthor never to be trusted. The episode ends with John Corben / Metallo at Project Cadmus being put together and that leads us into next weeks episode.  The musical score by Blake Nealy and the production crew at The CW just amazing , the set designs so cool. I am so happy Supergirl is at The CW and is here to stay hopefully for many years to come. Overall I give Supergirl Season 2 Episode 1 The Adventures of Supergirl a 9.5/10 a great episode and can’t wait for next weeks episode titled The Last Children of Krypton. Up Up and Away!!!
