Supergirl: The Complete First Season – Superman’s Cousin Make Her Own Way!

Supergirl S1 DVD

Supergirl’s first season was a bubble show on CBS which is a shame because the show’s first season was pretty great fun and deserved better – as the DVD set of the first season shows.

Executive Produced by Greg Berlanti, Ali Adler, Andrew Kreisberg and Sarah Schecter, Supergirl is a blue skies superhero show – achieving a feel not unlike The CW’s The Flash (a Good Thing since the show moves to The CW for season two).

Supergirl - Supergirl & Flash & Livewire

Melissa Benoist and Grant Gustin play two of the most likable superheroes in TV history – and with Supergirl and The Flash crossing over networks and universes in a one of a kind adventure on Monday – they had a chance to talk about the Supergirl episode in which they meet.

Follow the jump to see what they had to say.

Supergirl Is Just Getting Warmed Up!

Supergirl - He's Dead

Supergirl (CBS, Mondays, 8/7C) makes its timeslot premiere this week and, in an unusual turn, its second episode – Stronger Together – is actually better than the pilot.

Kara learns that superheroics are not easy – regardless of how much power you have – and gets raked over the coals in the press before figuring out how to go about doing her job.

Supergirl: This Is a Job For…!

Supergirl - This Is a Job For...

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, I have to say that the pilot for Supergirl (Monday, 8:30/7:30C then weekly at 8/9C)) was something I was definitely looking forward to seeing.

Is it great? No, not quite. But it is very, very good.

Supergirl Spot: This Is Not Your Planet!

Supergirl - Bust

Supergirl is coming to CBS this fall – adding another powerful female to a lineup that includes The Good Wife, Madam Secretary and Person of Interest (go ahead: tell me that Root and Shaw are not powerful females!).

Supergirl stars Melissa Benoist as Superman’s cousin, Kara Zor-El/Kara Danvers. Supergirl premieres on Monday, October 26th. Check out the show’s first TV spot after the jump.

First Look: CBS’ Supergirl Flies – If Not Soars!

supergirl in flight 2

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.

Danny Collins – One Hit Wonder Wonders!

Danny Collins is a little movie with a big heart. The titular Danny Collins is a 70-something ex-rocker doing arena tours in which he performs his big hits for audiences of screaming middle-aged and senior citizen sufferers of nostalgia – but things might have been so much better if he’d only gotten the letter John Lennon wrote him forty years ago.
