Stargirl is a fun ride, and the performances by Bassinger and Wilson make the first episode keep a lively pace.

Stargirl is sustained, at least in the short run, in those cruel relationships between two sides. Between justice and injustice. Between parents and children. [Full Review in Spanish]

Fun DC superhero show has fantasy violence, strong language.

It's a welcome tweak to the formula and there are some welcome elements at play in Stargirl, but the network's overreliance on this genre dilutes this newcomer.

Stargirl is just the sort of charming, wholesome superhero series the world could use right about now.

Stargirl hardly seeks to reinvent the wheel, or even expand the mold. Still, its mix of solid characters, clever writing and youthful exuberance casts a brighter light than most.
May 18, 2020
The biggest thing that Stargirl has going for it, though-aside from incredible effects, a stellar cast, and great script-is that it's filled with hope.
May 18, 2020
Stargirl is a series with a ton of positive energy that we could all really use right now.
May 18, 2020
The show isn't high art, of course, but it's funny and optimistic and gadget-filled and a breeze to watch.
May 18, 2020
Strong visual effects and the show's sunnily self-aware vibe go a long way to smoothing over the uneven plotting.

Well in the CW's wheelhouse and at the heart of the DC Universe, the Geoff Johns- and Greg Berlanti-developed DC's Stargirl is a lot of high production value, lighthearted fun that's full of the kind of Easter eggs comic geeks like myself love.

It is neither grim nor frivolous. It's just a good time -- and who doesn't want that every once in awhile?
May 13, 2020
Like the tragic twist in episode three, these backstories are grimmer than the sunny persona of Stargirl would indicate, but they add depth to the series as well as a sense of urgency.

There are interesting song choices, engaging storylines and plot, with captivating characters, powers, and magic.

Stargirl is the best of superhero television. It's both light and bright and has a bit of grim and dark just on its edges. Stargirl is like nothing else and it's exactly what we need.

Stargirl is a fun show that's sure to satisfy superhero fans. Plus, those who have spent time with the Arrowverse will be impressed with the series' superior special effects.

The show takes it's time to unfold, with key players slowly being introduced and hinted at. The first few episodes do an excellent job weaving the web of connection between each and every hero, villain, and eventual sidekick.
