The debut of Supergirl on CBS

Supergirl on CBS Having seen several trailers for Supergirl, I was finally excited to get behind a superhero show on TV. I've always liked superhero movies, but superheroes on TV haven't rally worked for me. I liked Supergirl's "hero" moments and the casting of Calista Flockhart.

I haven't read superhero comics since I was a kid. My comic cravings took me toward more indie characters outside the traditional Marvel and DC fare. I loved Tank Girl, but Supergirl just wasn't my thing ;)

I was surprised at how fast they moved the story along. I don't know if all the episodes move so fast, but this is not the sort of show you can fiddle on your phone while you watch - you'll probably miss something.

As far as the story itself, it seemed a bit weak. I liked that she has a sense of wonderment about her powers, but I expected her to toughen up a bit more across both sides of her character. This is only the first episode - and I did enjoy it a lot - so I'm excited to see how it unfolds.
