Critic Reviews for Supergirl Season 4

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1)

It also sowed the seeds for the incoming "Crisis On Infinite Earths" crossover that's sure to shake up the Arrowverse like never before when it arrives this fall.

May 20, 2019 | Full Review…

The season 4 finale of Supergirl, "The Quest For Peace," masterfully resolved all of its outstanding storylines.

May 20, 2019 | Full Review…

A sincerely good conclusion to a season that ended up being one of the most entertaining seasons of supershows the CW has done.

May 20, 2019 | Full Review…

There are so many threads that they tried to conclude at once, which meant that none of them wrapped up with any sort of satisfaction.

May 20, 2019 | Full Review…

For now it's worth celebrating just how strong Supergirl's fourth season has been.

Top Critic

As Supergirl's fourth season prepares for the reintroduction of Lex Luthor to a new generation, the series is as strong as it's ever been.

Nov 7, 2018 | Full Review…

Ultimately, Supergirl seems to have a sense of where it's going this season, but the question is whether we'll be excited to go with it.

Audience Reviews for Supergirl: Season 4

    The show was fantastic during season 1 and 2, then it completely fell apart after it meshed with the CW and the political machine of the liberal left. People watch shows to escape themselves into a new universe AWAY from your day to day political world. CW manages to shove it down your face. Goodbye CW and your shows!

    If Supergirl was done right, it would have been a must-see television show. However, with its subpar to at best mediocre acting by the cast, and an obvious politically correct charged writing since season 1, Supergirl is a must-skip.

    This is the worst incarnation of Lex luthor. He is over the top-cheesy and evil. He's evil just for the sake of evil and it seems like the way he's written is what an idiot's idea of a smart person is. He literally walks by a bunch of jail cells with prisoners playing chess, yells out moves as he walks by and gets checkmate for all of them. This is fucking terrible writing. Not to mention how over the top the political messaging is throughout the whole show. Look, I get it. Trump is bad. The Republican party is bad. Their stance on immigration is bad. I want to see a superhero show. Scoring cheap political points is ok for a politician. It's not ok when you are substituting politics for a good plot.Smallville's Lex luthor was written WAY , WAY better and had a long character arc instead of just being thrown into the show. Don't get me started on the whole "RUSSIA BAD" Evil supergirl shows up in russia of all places. What the hell is this? The 1960s? The fucking cold war? The show had a steadily paced and not too bad writing all the way up to season 3 but then it seems like for season 4 everything that was bad about the show was taken from a 5 to an 11. Look. I honestly like the idea. The writers clearly are more on the liberal side, but please, it's a fucking TV show. Entertainment. If your politics is becoming the point rather than entertaining people, you've failed as a writer. There's a reason why other shows are a lot more subtle in including politics. Here, it looks like a high school kid took his first writing class and said "CITIZEN LIBERTY = TRUMP METAPHOR", "EVIL SUPERGIRL IS RUSSIAN BECAUSE RUSSIA BAD" "LEX LUTHOR PLAY CHESS. LEX SMART AND EVIL." "CONSERVATIVE BAD" "WE GOOD." Then smacking you over and over with a CNN pamphlet repeating all these things. My point is, the politics shouldn't be the center focus of the show. It feels like the poltics and the metaphors and the symbolism came first, and the story came second. It should be the other way around. The show has become unbearable and it's not because I'm a Russia supporting Conservative who hates gays and loves trump. I'm a Bernie supporter. This season sucks and anyone who tells you otherwise is just saying it's good because they're afraid of the backlash they'll get for disagreeing with OVERT POLITICAL PROPAGANDA IN A SHOW BASED ON COMIC BOOK CHARACTERS WHO WEAR THEIR UNDERWEAR OUTSIDE. Rant over.

    Loved this show at first, but it's too political this seadon, I am bombarded with politcs constantly and would like a break, Im a centrist and Supergirl seems t have alienated anyone who isn't really left wing (have stopped watching some shows that are really right wing for the same reason). A super hero show should be for everyone, there are good people on thright and left, if a show is too far to o e side it will lose that audience and likely not survive, Supergirl WAS a great show, bit unless something changes, it's done.

    The best season in my opinion

    Supergirl can be a fun character if done right. But this show and this season are just so hard to watch. Dailoug is so cringy and hard to listen to. Each season lacks in the villains department. A hero is only as good as its villains and again another season with very unintersting vilalins with no flair or enjoyment. I still think this show could be better if they added batgirl and made it into worlds finest. Would allow the show to exsplore new areas and better villains and characters. Ive seen sooooo many sueprhero shows and this show has to be one of the worst and its deffinitly the worst one that on right now. Sadly though im a huge geek and i feel like i have to watch all superheroes shows no matter how bad they are.

    When I watched the pilot back in 2015, I didn't like the show. It had a slow pace, Kara was weak, it wasn't great. But I just started watching it again and I was impressed. The fourth season was fantastic! I love Lena, Alex, and Dreamer! So many interesting and complex characters. Loved it! Excited for the next season!

    Absolutely the stupidest season--sad because it followed a pretty good season last year. Supergirl is constantly beaten by everything like she is a delicate flower. Plus, a key left outside to open the fortress of solitude--what a joke. Come on writers, let's get it together. Too many players and a truckload of inconsistency--well, worse than usual.

    well I wanna just see more power of SuperGirl so SUPERGIRL unleash your power,I am eager to watch more.
