This series will be a brief, semi-comedic review of the CW superhero shows. You can check out last week’s review post here. The only shows discussed will be ‘Arrow’, ‘Flash’, and ‘Supergirl’. There WILL be some spoilers discussed, so only look at the reviews you’re up to date on!


3. Supergirl, “Trinity” (May 7th)

A lot of this episode focuses on the peculiar brain-woods of the World Killers. While it helps to remember the World Killers are space witches, it all feels weirdly Harry Potter-y. Lena and Supergirl being at odds is a fairly predictable storyline that works well enough for ‘Trinity.’ However, the duplicity on Kara’s end, and convincing James to go along with it, feels a tad out of character. At least James/Guardian gets a real character moment, choosing not to buy into Supergirl‘s distrust. The big fight at the end was cool, and re-centering Reign as the primary villain is a great move.

SCORE: 7.5/10 Sticks

Jon Barr is a comedian and TV Phanatic. Yeah, he meant to spell it that way. It's like the Philly Phanatic, like from Philadelphia, because he's from - you get it. He loves good TV & mocking bad TV. You can find him all over the web.
