The move away from so much time spent with Linda Danvers, the secret identity of Supergirl, chatting with Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart) helped move this series from being a soap opera with a female hero to a much better action series.

In the end, Supergirl/Kara followed her heart and it paid off for everyone.
October 25, 2016
The effects and fight sequences continue to impress, expanding the boundaries of what can be accomplished for television.

Alright, so this is a show about Supergirl, but let's make this thing clear from the start: Tyler Hoechlin is the best live-action Man of Steel since the sorely underrated Dean Cain hung up his tights.
October 25, 2016
Speaking of Clark, Tyler Hoechlin really nailed it, right?
October 24, 2016
It's a very strong start to the new season, with lots of new threads to take hold of. Up, up and away!

Hoechlin excels both as the superhero and the middle-mannered Clark Kent, bringing an element of the Christopher Reeve version of the character to the modern era. He's a wonderful addition to this world, playing perfectly off of Melissa Benoist...

Given how many stories we already have that focus on women fighting for respect, it's nice to see Supergirl switch things up a bit. It's no small gesture to have arguably the most famous male superhero of all time model feminism in action.

The show's innate charm remains in full force. If anything, that charm has only increased now that Kara is finally joined by her cousin.

October 11, 2016
While Hoechlin easily steps into the role of Clark, and Superman arrives in National City to much fanfare in order to help his cousin, neither the actor nor the Man of Steel steal the focus from Benoist or Kara/Supergirl.
October 11, 2016
We don't necessarily need Kal-El around when Kara does a fine job carrying the truth, justice, and tolerance flag every week, but the Superman we're presented with here is like an old friend we haven't seen in awhile.
October 11, 2016
All in all, a promising debut in the new home.
October 11, 2016
Even with the addition of her more famous cousin, Supergirl is still Supergirl's show.
October 11, 2016
The point is/was that it's nice that Supergirl doesn't lament about no boys in her life and doesn't fall into the traps of her running into battles on tilt because a boy that she could throw into the stratosphere forgot her birthday.
October 11, 2016
It was a strong welcome back for the series that hit some awkward bumps in it's first year out and has only seemed to grow in confidence. Let's see what The CW can do now that it has its hands on it.

In describing Supergirl's move from CBS to The CW... allow me to borrow a few words from Alex Danvers: "It's kind of like the old place. Maybe better."
October 10, 2016
Kara is more in line with other female lead characters on CW shows, such as the acclaimed shows Jane the Virgin and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. However, Supergirl as a superhero protagonist is a smooth fit with the CW's bigger hits, The Flash and Arrow.
October 10, 2016
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.

Supergirl finally puts a face to the famous cousin of its titular hero, and in doing so, the series is poised to tackle the characters' shared mythos in a bolder, more extensive way in season 2.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
October 4, 2016
Hoechlin's premiere flight as Superman and Supergirl's CW debut are both very, very good and represent the best DC Comics television has to offer.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
