So, to start it off, watch the SDCC Season 3 trailer.

What I DON'T like from the get-go is the tired trope of 'I can't be Kara Danvers. That identity is a lie blah blah'

So, UGH, we're going to get a season, or partial season, of watching Supergirl go through the cliche of 'not being able to have it all' so she only goes hard core into work. So, if you take out the humanity of Supergirl, what you have is  A VERY POOR SHOW.

Supergirl helping little girls stand up to bullies, finding kittens, tossing abusive boyfriends across the bar? That's Supergirl, because that's Kara. The 'Supergirl on a Mission' theme is boring, trite, and will not be done very well, since that just means more and more DEO, and that function of the show is such a zit on the butt of the show.

Also...is there going to be more Superman in the series?  Smiley

I almost can't bring myself to watch this.

I watched the first ep. I'm not convinced that this is a good idea, or that the show was an actual good episode either. I'll see if I can watch ep 2 at some point.

So, I lost ep 2 in the dvr taping schedule, but watched eps 3 & 4.

And the idea of 'Kara no more' was driven out after the first 2 (presumably) eps. It's already a down angle. I guess..yeah, I'm okay with it. She's not so angry mopey about the loss of Mon-el, but she's a hurting woman with having lost a love. that at least is being done well.

A lot of the annoyance of the DEO is scaled back some. Where I found an obnoxious, cloying, suffocating element over the show last season, here it's just used for information, setting up where the big bad is, and giving the deux ex(planation). Winn is not as highly visible this season at all, from what I've seen, and neither is James. Thankfully, I don't recall seeing Guardian this season yet either! Wahoo! Perhaps they got enough feedback to show that no one liked any of this stuff.

This show works where the relationships are strong, where no one dismisses Supergirl and tells her she 'can't', and where Melissa Benoist is allowed to carry each scene and support the show on her Kryptonian shoulders.

So far,...from what I've seen after my first ep break, Grin , the show is allowing this to happen. Now, the Lena Luthor stuff is okay, I love adding Morgan Edge, and the mystery of 'Reign' is not annoying right now, Alex and Maggie have hit a very real and true roadblock that all possibly married couples need to face.

So, I'm getting onboard and being happy watching this!
