Like a Girl #7 Supergirl 1x03  

This week, we are joined by Shannon from Sci-Fi Boneyard (www.scifiboneyard.com). We have some major questions this week. Where did Winn get all of that computer equipment for the new HQ? Why doesn’t Cat recognize Supergirl as Kara? What’s up with Henshaw? We also have a little Jimmy Olsen appreciation session.

This week, we have another animated DC movie about Supergirl with Superman in the title. We start off excited about having the cast of Castle in a Superman movie, slide into a nice long rant about Lois Lane, and finally talk about how disappointing the ending of the movie was. We spend some time trying to figure out how to pronounce Melissa Benoist’s name before talking about how much we are looking forward to the premiere.

Like a Girl #6 Supergirl 1x02 Stronger Together

Nikkie and Haley are Aprilless this week, but still manage to come up with some advice for Supergirl: shoulda pushed. Kara gets a lot of advice on how to be a better superhero, and then we get an awesome crime fighting montage. We enjoy seeing that Kara’s experiences are different from those of her cousin. We get a little more from her evil Aunt General Astra before she is taken out by a Kryptoknife.

The pilot is finally here! This week, we compare the tv show origin story to the other origin stories we’ve seen. We appreciate the diversity and representation of the world, critique some of the shortcomings of the villain, and admire the realism of the familial relationships we’ve been shown.

This week, you’ll get to meet Haley, April Jo, and Nikkie, a few geeky women that are ready to geek out on Supergirl. We start by discussing what we know of Kara Zor-El and what we expect from the upcoming tv series before diving into her comic book history. We discuss her origins, friends and allies, villains, and love interests and the surprising ways that those categories overlap. We also make big plans for a drunk Supergirl commentary in our next episode, so make sure your liver is prepared to join us.
