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.

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.
