Had high hopes for this show however so far it's a bit corny :/

UPDATE: still corny, stopped watching after episode 5.....wait did I make it that far? I just couldn't take it. I tried, I really tried. I will give it a 2 just because I love superheroes so much :(

Didn't think this show was as good as I expected. I usually enjoy any sort of superhero-type show, but this show was a bit cliche and unoriginal.

Corny and entirely too predictable, Supergirl is pre-packaged easy viewing garbage.

I REALLY want to love this show... please don't screw it up CBS! The pilot was lukewarm, predictable and stereotypical. I'm irrational when it comes to super hero shows, it is the only genre where I am willing to watch no matter how bad it is with a hope that it turns around.
I will rate again after the 3rd episode and give it the true rating it deserves if CBS doesn't stop pandering.
UPDATE: Oh CBS, why??? I've dropped the 4 rating... even my love for super hero shows can't keep me from dropping this to the rating it deserves. I think the real problem with this show (besides the predictable writing) is actually that they cast the wrong woman to play Supergirl.

It is corny as hell, and that will turn people off or pull people in, with so many gritty Superhero shows lately, Supergirl tries to break that pattern with some light-hearted adventure. Personally i see it as a breath of fresh air in these gritty worlds "post-Dark Knight" but if they go down this route they need to build the characters to drive a connection with the audience and keep people coming back again, and again.

This show has some promise and potential, even with some of the mediocre acting displayed. The role for Jimmy Olsen by Mehcad Brooks is a total miscast, and in my opinion a role beneath his abilities.

kinda glad this show is in danger, this show really sucks and its so in your face about her being a girl that it's counter productive. When I first saw the trailer for this show and it said "It's not a man!! it's supergirl!!!" I thought it was a joke. I still gave it a shot just to see if it was any good despite the horrible trailer, it wasn't. She shouted, "you won't let me *insert dangerous task here* because I'm a girl!" every episode... it was ridiculous.
I would've been fine to over look this if the plots were any good, but no, they were also a huge letdown. All the villains over act and get the cheapest looking outfits and wigs.
And then there's the main actress that makes no sense, apparently her kind is very wise and stoic, whenever we get a glimpse of these people they are very composed and strong. Even Clark Kent is this way so why would Kara be any different? she was raised on krypton far longer than Kent but somehow she's a shy klutz now?

This would've been great if they wrote her story to make more sense with her personality or just didn't make this like every other female lead comedy. (confessions of a shopaholic, devil wears Prada, legally blonde comes to mind)

What could Supergirl's sister's coming out possible have to add to the show. When I watch superheroes, I want to see fantastic stuff. I don't want the Producers political agenda shoved down my throat. Bye bye Supergirl.
