Supergirl - Season 1, Episode 10 - Rotten Tomatoes

Childish Things



Critic Consensus: Darker themes fill "Childish Things" as a sidekick takes center stage to take on his own demons before they take down National City -- a long-overdue win for Jeremy Jordan.

Critic reviews for Childish Things

I loved seeing Lucy and Jimmy work through this issue in a very mature way, and I'm very excited to see Lucy more often!

This complicated relationship between Winn and his father gives Jordan a chance to really shine for the first time on Supergirl, giving the role depth beyond the character with unrequited feelings for the lead/the tech wiz.

Supergirl is about a pretty young woman who can fly. But the show also poses arresting questions about the assertion of identity and individuality in a world that is most comfortable with conformity. Fear, rage and hate are its thematic backdrops.

Credit where credit is due: Supergirl excels at thematic writing.

Remember how I told you there's a good story in this episode, but it's undercut by some really dumb stuff? This is what I meant.

This is the best performance I think I've ever seen Jeremy Jordan give in anything, and Henry Czerny was a wonderfully disturbing presence as Toyman. I hope he returns.
