SUPERGIRL (TV SERIES) cover image Click to play video trailer
Supergirl is an incredible TV about the other side of Superman's life that we were never told. Supergirl is Superman's cousin who was sent to earth to protect her cousin, Superman. Unfortunately, her coordinates to earth were disrupted when her planet Krypton blew up and she arrives years later. Kara (Melissa Benoist), aka Supergirl, ends up getting stuck in a time vertex for 24 years and does not age. When she arrives to earth she realizes her cousin is grown and doesn't really need her help so she tries to blend in with everyone else and we will soon see how far that takes her.

There are many great characters and actors in this series. James Olsen (Mehcad Brooks), Hank Henshaw (David Harewood) and Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart). I have to say my favorite character is Kara Danvers (Melissa Benoist) because she is brave, strong and courageous. She is only 13-years-old when her parents give her the mission to escape their planet and leave everyone and everything she knows to protect her baby cousin on a completely different planet!

My favorite scene is when Kara is talking to her adopted sister and says, "I think I'm going to go to bed now, I just carried an entire plane on my back." It is hilarious! She makes the statement so calmly and it's not every day a girl carries a large plane on her back.

The message of this series is "if someone tells you to hide who you are and not be yourself, don't listen to them because you have to do what you are created to do and that's all that matters." We all have a unique purpose that only we can fulfill.

Supergirl promises to be a fantastic and interesting series! I recommend this series to boys and girls ages 5 years old to 18. I give this series 5 out of 5 stars. You can watch Supergirl on CBS every Monday beginning October 26, 8:30/7:30c.

I think this is a charming show with a cheerful, female heroine who young girls can emulate. Her innocence is refreshing and the setting very up to date. Kara is cute, nerdy and someone you can actually relate to. She doesn't try to be something she isn't. She has a devil of a boss and yet, she deals with her straight on. This is definitely a show I wouldn't mind my younger kids watching.
