Monkeys Fighting Robots

This series will be a brief, semi-comedic review of the CW superhero shows. You can check out last week’s review post here. The only shows discussed will be ‘Arrow’, ‘Flash’, and ‘Supergirl’. There WILL be some spoilers discussed, so only look at the reviews you’re up to date on!


3. Supergirl, “Triggers” (Oct 16th)

The second episode of Supergirl S3 finds a way to do last week’s material in a less mopey way. Kara figures out how to mourn Mon-El, but still gets some sweet sister bonding. Lena Luthor makes the puzzling decision to abandon LuthorCorp to… run a newspaper? I understand she bought it, but why is she going in on it herself? That seems like the gig to outsource, not the big named-after-you company. Speaking of, Krypto-Mom gets a This Is Us-esque storyline, and it mostly works. Detective Daughter is interesting, but Mopey Daughter’s insufferable – like Supergirl herself. How Super Mandy Moore will turn evil ought to be an interesting journey.

SCORE: 7/10 DJs
