Lol. Yeah, my microscopic vision is on the fritz!

But those inconsistencies are what hurt the show.

Was it just me, or did Max Lord know a LOT both about Myriad, and when it would be implemented? He knew how it worked (his satellites), how to protect himself from it (with the ear thing), and when to expect it (he apparently slept with the ear thing on the night before, and sent the earrings to cat "yesterday").

Aww. The power of the human spirit saves the day! Hope and love and "you can all be heroes." Oy.

And this emotional goodbye tour is ludicrous. Even the characters know that.

What a maudlin, tortured and dull episode.

If they did a spinoff where Winn adopted him, I'd set my DVR right now.

If you took a shot each time a character said “hope,” your liver would sacrifice you to save itself. https://mattthecatania.wordpress.com/20 ... -superior/

The best part of Supergirl moving to the Cw is now they can't air Crazy Ex-Girlfriend at the same time!

I'm excited for it coming to the CW website. I haven't watched Supergirl since episode 3 because I missed a week or two and couldn't go back to watch them.

I'm actually sad about the transition because this will more than likely mean that Vixen will not be getting her own series on the CW now. I liked her in Arrow and was interested in seeing more. Hopefully she will at least be added to Legends of Tomorrow since that was the plan B for her character.

On the other hand, they either change the writers and address the flaws of Supergirl, or it might go down the same route as it did on CBS. The show ended with less than half of its original viewership. It clearly had no problem getting attention, the problem was keeping people invested.

Does CW even have space? Lol they didnt cancel anything and pretty much have a full schedule.

Plus Riverdale got a season order. At this point they'll have 6 comic based shoes...really the network only has 2 non-genre shows lol, Jane and ExGF, and those shows rock too

BC, I don't get how we disagree with so much in comics but are so similar in shows. Jane The Virgin and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend are like a one two combo from the time of WB; smart shows with strong writing and complex women.

I'd say they're even better...I mean they still got time to go south (looking at you Veronica Mars!!!) but so far they're shows that excel at not just writing great women but great non-man-pains men, which really seem like a hard thing for TV writers NOT on Bob's Burgers lol...

Oh and don't forget iZombie too...hell, the women on the Vampire Diaries get overall better treatment than most women on HBO lol

I love iZombie, and Bob's Burgers haha. iZombie season three does worry mean since season three is when Veronica feel apart..

I guess I'll watch Supergirl when it goes onto Netflix...Nothing really amazed me too much from the show when I caught it during the Flash crossover(which I guess Barry will conveniently remember happened now). I found every non-Supergirl/non-Cat character boring

CW actually has a better track record with female led shows (Gossip Girl nonwithstanding) than just about any major network...which is funny considering the critiques of their shows. I actually wonder if their female-heavy lineups and centric stories are a factor why people don't give it's good shows their do (I think the same think about Lifetime, not enough people were talking about Unreal and I think Freeform/ABC Family is grossly underrated for the same reason)?

CW has a very strong female viewership so it doesn't surprise me that they tend to have success with female led shows. I'd imagine all of them are predominately female heavy on viewership except for maybe Flash.

I'd argue the issue with CW is a mixture of the female heavy lineup, and the shows that, I assume because I only watch the DC shows and Supernatural, seem to be more catered, for lack of a better word, to female viewers. Beefcake everywhere, Arrow's marketing for the longest was Amell shirtless for instance and good lord didn't they get their money's worth with that salmon ladder. There's also, at least from my perspective, a lack of cheesecake in comparison. The shows focus heavily on the emotional impact of things. Sam/Dean/Castiel relationship for instance.

Well I think the more male-centered networks focus on emotions too, just a different set of emotions.

Compare Supernatural to Sons of Anarchy...I know kinda silly...but look at how they discuss or depict friendship, familal love and loss.

Lol...essentially I think Supernatural or The Flash or The Origconvey man-pain in a way that the writers believe will appeal more to young women. Which usually means more explicit discussions of feelings (sadness, jealous, love, regret) in a way that a show like Breaking Bad would do so way more subtly because "men don't talk about their feelings"

Sounds great. I also heard there was confirmation that Flashpoint will merge Supergirl's world into the ArrowVerse. Some have said having the Superman characters in that world would be problematic but I disagree. However it will be interesting to see how they explain Superman's established presence in a world that, prior to Flash, seemed not to have had any superheroes.
