B+ No Score Yet NCIS: Season 16 (TV, 2003) NCIS's 16th season -- 16! Old enough to drive a car! -- wastes no time in dropping us back into a world of action, plots and counterplots, quips, and Gibbs' stoicism. - Entertainment Weekly EDIT

B+ 86% Supergirl: Season 4 - What's so Funny About Truth, Justice, and the American Way? (TV Episode) Poor Supergirl, feeling isolated and surrounded by extremists on all sides.

A- 90% Supergirl: Season 4 - Man of Steel (TV Episode) What great fun - yet how sobering - to see so many recontextualized events from the past seasons. Living in National City doesn't look like much fun, but catching past guest stars and battles sure was. - Entertainment Weekly EDIT

C 71% Supergirl: Season 3 - Not Kansas (TV Episode) All the earnest dialogue in the world can't smooth over Supergirl's clunky attempts at a social debate this week in "Not Kansas," an episode that nevertheless moves us a few steps forward on a number of this season's story lines. - Entertainment Weekly EDIT
