Putting the “Super” back in Superheroes: The Supergirl Premiere

Oh my goodness – that’s what I’m talking about!

I don’t have much time, but the Supergirl Season 2 premiere deserves a double thumbs up.

No offense to Henry Cavill who has done his best with crappy, gloomy material but Supergirl has now given us not only a great Kara Danvers but also a fun, and funny, Superman!  I haven’t been this giddy about an episode of television in a long time.

It also didn’t hurt that there were multiple geek shoutouts to the original Christopher Reeve Superman film, and that Cat Grant’s crush on Clark Kent (along with a quick reference to Dean Cain’s character) gave me Lois and Clark flashbacks.

Nicely done CW – can’t wait for more.
