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.

Critics’ Choice Awards – Television’s Best!

Critics Choice TV

The annual Critics’ Choice Awards were given out last night and there were a number of surprises like no nomination for Tatiana Maslany this year, and awards for FX shows that come a bit later than maybe they should have, just for two.

It was a light year for broadcast TV once again – only three awards to network shows, but basic cable did better than okay with eight. Online productions nabbed as many awards as broadcast. Hmmmm…

Follow the jump for the complete list of winners – with a brief commentary where it occurs to me.

CBS 2015-16 Schedule: CSI Movie Finale, Supergirl, Angel From Hell and More!

Supergirl - Bust

While CBS has made the fewest adjustments to its primetime schedule, two of which are unusual for the network: its first superhero/comics adaptation, Supergirl (above), and given it the 8pm Monday slot beginning in November; there’s a more youthful look to its new procedural, the TV adaptation of Limitless.

The long-running CSI comes to a close with a two-hour movie event that reunites original cast members William F. Petersen and Mag Helgenberger – and sets the stage for Ted Danson’s move to CSI: Cyber.

CBS only added two comedies for fall: Angel From Hell – starring Jane Lynch as Amy, an obnoxious woman who claims to be Allison’s (Maggie Lawson) guardian angel; Life In Pieces – a look at one family’s awkward moments (which might turn out to be their most beautiful milestones).

Waiting in the wings are dramas Rush Hour and Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders. One of the biggest scheduling shifts finds the thirteen-episode fifth season of Person of Interest moving to mid-season.

For series descriptions and the complete CBS schedule (which includes 22 returning shows), follow the jump.

Hollywood Insider: Summer Glau Talks About Voicing Supergirl In The DC Comic Animated Movie-Superman/Batman: Apocalypse

Summer Glau

Summer Glau knows her audience.

Whether as River Tam in Joss Whedon’s cult classic series and follow-up film, Firefly and Serenity, or as the indestructible android-from-the-future Cameron in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Glau has cornered the market on playing attractive and demure young females with the controlled and deadly power to destroy an opposing legion of trained warriors.

So it seems only natural that as her first-ever animated voiceover role, Summer Glau would fit neatly into the role of an uber-powered Kryptonian who falls under the spell of one of Superman’s greatest foes.
