Alright, I'm giving this show about 2 or 3 more episodes to get it's act together. Having said that, one more "This is a job for Supergirl" from Kara and I'm not even giving it those extra episodes.
I love her saying "This is a job for Supergirl." Different strokes for different folks, I guess.
I did NOT like her working with, or being trained by the military. And the DEO has WAY TOO MUCH Kryptonite available here.
I completely agree. Kara working for the DEO just feels wrong. They also do have way too much kryptonite. At least it seems like a substance that isn't radily available for everyone to get their hands on.
Lets face facts, shall we. If the government had access to THIS much kryptonite, they would use it against both Kara and Superman...all in the hopes of capturing them and trying to use them to create their own super powered beings.
I don't know. For the most part people seem to love Superman. In the pilot Henshaw said something about how the people who don't like Superman don't say so out loud because it's not the majority opinion, or something along those lines. Maybe there are enough politicians protecting Superman that the DEO has never been given the go ahead to go after Superman.
Why is the heat vision now suddenly white? Is it a female kryptonian thing? Males shoot out red beams, females white ones?
The male kryptonian had the same color heat vision as Kara and Astra, though it looks blue to me. I'm not sure why they're not using the red colored heat vision. Maybe it's just to differentiate their show?
And now lets get to my main gripe...the fight between Kara and Astra. I get that they don't have a block buster budget like Man of Steel did. But MoS showed what a actual battle between, for all purposes, GODS would be like. Metropolis got seriously destroyed, countless lives lost, billions in damages. Supergirl gives us two kryptonian throwing each other around a warehouse....Seriously!? Are you freaking kidding me?
You pretty much answered your own gripe. Even though this looks like it has a good budget, it's not going to come anywhere close to something like MoS. They can't show the Superman vs. Zod level of fight here. It's just not going to happen. Plot-wise, remember that Kara is starting out and this is basically her second fight ever. Astra was, at least at first, still trying to get Kara on her side so she wasn't going all out. Also, the show could be holding back on a bigger fight between these two for the finale.
I forgot to mention Maxwell Lord. He was barely in it but his inclusion is interesting. I wonder what version of Lord we are going to get? The one that was friendly with the Justice League and helped them or the one who was a maniacal killer with mind control powers that forced Superman to fight his Justice League friends and murdered a lot of people? Or possibly something more in between the extremes.
