Supergirl: Batgirl, can you pass me the onions?
Supergirl: I mean the carrots! No! The lettuce! No! The forks! No! The fridge!
Wonder Woman: Do you mean the salt?
Wonder Woman: Also, I'm not Batgirl.
Super Friends: Brainiac 5
I chose to go with the Legion Reboot version instead of the classic Bronze age (arguably so iconic that even the late, great Dave Cockrum didn’t give it a re-design when he took the LSH out of the 50s-60s into the 70s) because I always felt the original was a little plain. Compared to the other looks Brainy has in the comics this one is minimalist in a good way <3
Jesse Rath did a wonderful job in bringing the character to life, not just because he’s a comic geek but also because he’s a wonderful actor. Wishing even better things for him when SG wraps this year.
Geeks rule, ok?

I mean, we’ve been saying it for a while now.
Gone are the episodes of the early seasons where the writers had the main plot plus two sub plots max per episode.
In recent seasons of almost all of the CW shows, most episodes have four or five subplots and only one, maybe two of those subplots are even helpful to the main plot of the week.
Supergirl has been incredibly sloppy since last season’s COIE crossover. There are too many supporting characters getting storylines and as a result all of them are lacklustre.
Subplot #1 Danvers Family related stuff
Subplot #2 Kara and Lena’s relationship
Subplot #3 Alex and Kelly’s relationship (LGBTQ)
Subplot #4 Nia learning how to use her powers (First transgender superhero)
Subplot #5 Luthor Family stuff
Subplot #6 Nia and Brainy’s relationship
Subplot #7 Lena and Andrea’s continued past/present/quid pro quo relationship
Subplot #8 William and Kara’s relationship/Kara’s friends pressuring her into dating someone
Subplot #9 Whatever J’onn and M’gann still have going on
Subplot #10 Kara’s day job/maintaining her human life
It’s pretty crazy how often they throw an entire handful of these subplots into an episode only to watch viewers stop watching. A strong episode has a main plot you can follow, that keeps you engaged. When a friend asks you the next day what the episode was about, you can recall something like “a weird blobby alien dude tried to kidnap Supergirl because Kryptonians killed his family” and not,
“Um...Lena was still trying to do her mind control project but Lex did something to sabotage it, I think? And the not-DEO was raiding some place. Alex now has a new uniform and make-up. Anyway, some guy stuck a stick in the ground and caused an earthquake. I think Kara ate a bagel or something near the end.”
Sooooo sloppy!! Even soap operas have tighter plots!! And it’s such a shame because a lot of these characters are fantastic and would absolutely rock a well-written storyline. Instead, we’re left with a cancelled show and so many loose ends on these subplots we’ll be lucky to get one or two properly tied up by the end.
