Shortly after the Supergirl pilot was leaked, CBS uploaded its new shows for fall onto the network’s press website where I took a guilt-free look (as a guy who grew up with comics and remembers picking up Supergirl’s first ever comics appearance off of one of those ‘Hey, Kids! Comics!’ racks that used to be in grocery stores across the continent, the temptation to seek out the leaked pilot was almost unbearable).
Is it great? No, not quite. But it is very good.
