Senile Sci-Fi Reviews: Supergirl

These are the thoughts and ramblings of an old author and his views on science fiction, past and present.
First let me begin with a personal note. My latest work, Mirror of Spies, was released on Sept 21, so give it a look and leave a review.
Now, on to why you’re really reading this article: a very attractive young woman in a blue and red cape and skirt.
Now maybe it’s a stretch to call this true sci-fi, but with all the gadgets, aliens and spaceships I think it will fit.
Now most of you know the story of the girl from Kyrpton sent to Earth with her cousin to keep an eye on him. But there are a few twists and turns in this show that keep it a little more unpredictable, even to the hard core comic book fans.
The story is excellently done, the acting is superb and one can’t help but route for the bumbling little personal assistant or her alter ego Supergirl. Now being the grumpy gus that I am, I would love to find holes or simply something to complain about, but I really can’t. everything from the effects to the writing seem to be spot on. In fact the only real thing I could complain about is when is she actually going to win a fight on her own? Also, need I point out that she is the last female of Krypton? If the other surviving Kyrptonians kill her as planned, they’re screwed. Or unscrewed, depending on your twist to that phrase. All and all, I am addicted to the show in much the way I am Agents of Shield, and I for one will continue to binge watch it and wait for the next season to come onto Netflix.
Until next time, kick back, grab a glass and give it a whirl.
Now get off my lawn!
