Critic reviews for Fight or Flight
I'm excited to see how Lucy's involvement in the show develops, and what impact her relationship with Kara will have on Kara's arc.
It was the first episode of the series that felt fully rounded, and while the dialogue still needs some tuning up and needs to be a little less on the nose, it's shown an improvement since last week's awkward fumbling.
So far, I am really enjoying watching Kara struggle and grow into her new superhero role, and I like all of the support she has surrounding her.
In shining the spotlight on Kara Zor-El for a change, the writers have found a way to show sides to Superman that his own stories rarely allow. Apparently, that really was a job for Supergirl.
In the third [episode], we got a chance to deal with the emotional puzzle of being Supergirl. And it was great.
