SUPERGIRL is an action-adventure drama based on the DC Comics character Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist), Superman’s (Kal-El) cousin who, after 12 years of keeping her powers a secret on Earth, decides to finally embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

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.

Okay, so it has gotten slightly better, but still not worthy of that 4 rating. I am such a sucker for super hero shows... must have something to do with an imprint at childhood :) The show was picked up for a full season, so obviously they have the same hope that I have, that the show will do well. I am not sure they chose the right person to play Supergirl, her acting is good, but I just don't see it. What the heck, I'm still watching and it does seem to be getting better.
