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.

Initially I was put of by the pilot ep. It was just so full of cliches and cheesyness. But I think it is starting to hit its stride. Benoist is a brilliant Supergirl, and it is very hard not to be charmed by her.
It is more on the lighthearted Flash side rather than the grittyness of Arrow and it suit the character of Kara. I mean, making Superman all serious was a huge mistake in Man of Steel, and staying clear of that was a good decision.
I suggest sticking with it through the first few establishing episodes, and let it find its footing.
