Critic reviews for Red Faced

Kara's attempt to figure out what, exactly, is bothering her so much is surprisingly compelling and humanizing, thanks largely to Benoist's simple, energetic performance.

And even if the show didn't feel the need to state it explicitly... Supergirl saving a young soccer team from two petty men fighting each other with their fancy cars would've spoken for itself.

Kryptonite isn't Supergirl's biggest weakness, it's the constant soapbox spouting that makes the show not nearly as much fun as it should be with a stronger focus.
