Critic Reviews for The Adventures of Supergirl

This wasn't the most plot heavy episode, but efficiently introduced new characters who will likely play an important part in season two.Tyler Hoechlin's Superman was warm and fun, and he's likable for the same reasons that Melissa Benoist's Supergirl is.

There was something oddly heartwarming watching the fellow Kryptonian superheroes relate to one another and take on the world together as family.

Supergirl on CW is why superhero shows should exist. It's the culmination of every dorky episode of Lois and Clark, every lame episode of Smallville, and every angsty episode of Arrow and The Flash.

"The Adventures of Supergirl" was a breath of fresh air. It was inherently feminist, so it didn't have to talk about it.

Fortunately, the show delivered another great installment, starting year two of "The Adventures of Supergirl" off on the right foot.

Indeed, Monday's premiere didn't feel quite like Supergirl 2.0, as many thought it might, but rather Supergirl 1.5 - the same general show, but with a few noticeable additions.

Season two of Supergirl makes an astonishingly seamless transition to a new network.

The superheroes may be the ones repairing skyscrapers and stopping rockets from crashing, but [Alex] can still bring down a pretty scary villain with just her hand-to-hand combat skills.

For the most part, 'The Adventures of Supergirl' is an example of Supergirl at its best -- full of references to the DC Comics heroes, compelling character struggles, realistic portrayals of platonic relationships, and a fun superhero story.

With Superman making his long-awaited debut, Supergirl's second season got off to a strong start this week.

The hour shines most when it focuses on Kara's struggle. Benoist, as vibrant as ever, conveys both Kara's pleasure at being who she is and the pain of having that responsibility - a challenging line to walk.

I have no idea if Supergirl will join the ranks of TV shows that took a while to find their feet before becoming something truly special. But this second season premiere at least promises that's a possibility.
