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, “Schott Through the Heart” (April 16th)

Supergirl has come back after a long hiatus. Not only has the show returned, but it brought along Oscar nominee Laurie Metcalf (LADY BIRD). Winn’s mother isn’t the strongest character, nor is the absentee mother an inventive story. However, there is some solid emotional storytelling with J’onn and his father. Exploring both Alzheimer’s and living as black men worked well for the intimate dinner party. The toy-intern villain wasn’t super scary, but the robot toys were fun to watch. This isn’t the best Supergirl episode, but the episode marks a strong return for the CW series.

SCORE: 7/10 Robot Monkeys (hey, just like us!)

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.
