TV Review : Supergirl : Season 3 : Episode 3 : Far From the Tree

Up Up and Away Super Friends and DC Comics Fans , Here is my review for Supergirl Season 3  Episode 3 Far From the Tree. 1st a description of the episode :  Eliza (guest star Helen Slater) throws Alex and Maggie a wedding shower; Maggie reaches out to her estranged father ; Supergirl joins J’onn on a personal mission.  Now on to my review of this episode Warning Full Spoilers To Follow : This was a A good episode of Supergirl while not as great as the 1st 2 episodes it was still pretty solid. Far From the Tree was good , had a ton of emotional and was action packed especially towards the end. In this episode we see 2 different stories Supergirl and J’onn Jozz going to Mars trying to find J’onn’s Dad and Maggie and Alex having their baby shower with Maggie’s estrange father visiting. The story on mars with J’onn’s father played by Carl Lumbly (J’onn Jonzz from Justice League and Justice League Unlimited) was good and had some good emotional moments with J’onn , Supergirl and J’onn’s father also Supergirl playing a Britney Spears in J’onn’s 50’s car that was funny. The action was a bit over done but with so much going on did not mind it at all and J’onn and his father and Supergirl coming back home to earth was a good way to end the episode. The stuff with that staff though could of done without. The story with Maggie , Alex and Maggie’s estrange father was good and some real emotion their. This whole episode had lots of emotions in it. Also anytime  get Eliza , Helen Slater to guest star always good. Helen Slater will always have a special place in my heart for the history of Superman Family actors and actresses. So overall this was a great episode a step below episodes 1 and 2 but still solid. J’onn Jozz David Harewood and J’onn’s father Carl Lumbly along with Maggie Floriana Lima where the standouts. Also Supergirl and Alex , Melissa Benoist and Chyler Leigh good in this episode. Also any time we get Eliza , Helen Slater to guest star always good. So far Season 3 of Supergirl really good so far. Overall I give Supergirl Season 3  Episode 3 Far From the Tree a 8/10 a good episode and can’t wait for next weeks episode titled “The Fathful” Until next week Super Friends Up Up and Away!!!
