Actually, he's a fellow comedian but you all take him seriously.

We were actually sharing the stage at SXSW last year; that guy can drink even Bill Burr under the table! It's unbelievable.

I mean, I'm only watching the show for her, but not because I wanna look at her body. Personality-wise, she's precious. Her dialogue and interactions with other characters are the only thing keeping me interested in the show.

Exactly this. Next to Grant Gustin's Flash, Melissa Benoist performance as Supergirl is my second fav portrayal for a major DC superhero. Which is all the more sad that there are no plans for a crossover between them in the near future.

To be honest, after all the angst and sexual frustration I watched Clark go through during his teen years on Smallville, I'm more than happy to welcome a little fluff into the mythos of these characters.

Two strikes so far. Hoping to give the third one a watch before giving my judgement.

You made a conscious decision to watch Smallville, you deserve your pain.

I'm always intrigued when I see Max Lord show up. Doesn't seem like he has his "Mind Push" power here, at least not yet, as there were several instances where it would have come in handy and it didn't seem like it was even implied. Maybe later.

Benoist in her outfit isn't the only reason to watch the show... but... it is the best reason. Sorry.

I'm a little disappointed in what I've seen from the early episodes. I'd like for a little bit more backstory to be given with these villains for those of us (like myself) who aren't familiar with them. Also, I don't like how Kara/Supergirl so willingly just takes orders from the "DEO" like she's one of their soldiers. I have no problem with her having them as allies and utilizing their resources though. But could you imagine if it were a Wonder Woman series, and she was so willingly taking orders from Steve Trevor.

Wonder Woman and Supergirl aren't the same character though. Wonder Woman wouldn't take orders because that's who she is, whereas Supergirl (especially in this show), is a young 20 something year old trying to prove she's just as good as Superman.

Supergirl is basically, "I am a woman and hear me roar, I am just as good as the boys!"" type of girl. Wonder Woman is already a seasoned fighter and leader.

And boy does this show love banging THAT drum loud and often. It's like, "Yeah, 'Girl Power', we get it." I keep half-expecting the frickin' Spice Girls to show up.

I mean it's fine, and it's expected. But they could bring it down to like a 6, maybe.

When the characters name her "Supergirl" she says, "Isn't that anti-feminist? Shouldn't I be named Super...woman? I feel like saying girl demeans who I am."

LOL, what.

Saying "girl" is now anti-feminist according to this show.

It's the very definition of demeaning when you use it to describe a full grown woman.

Show of hands: who here is amused by Cyber's sudden self-promotion to Feminist Pope?
Keep them up if you're certain his next response is going to be a man-splain of Feminism.

I'd be pissed too if I was Kara's age and they called me Superboy.

Where are you from? Many females in their 20's are still referred to as "girls" here in New York. At one of my jobs the female workers were always called "girls" and not "women." They would say, "Hey call those girls over here!" and not, "Hey bring over those women!"

Hell when I worked at the airport in my early 20's, a lot of people called me "kid" when I was a fully grown adult. Then again all my co-workers were in their late 30's or early 40's, so to them a 20 something year old probably did seem like a kid.

Much like SuperGirl, you'd have been well within your rghts to demand people not refer to you that way if it bothered you.
And then you'd be able to tell a lot about the person you're talking to by how they react to your request.

Me personally, I don't answer to "girl," because I haven't been one in a very long time.

So are you bothered when full grown women use the term when referring to themselves, or even when they're referring to, or addressing other grown women? Like, when one says "the girls and I are hanging out this weekend".

You did say it's demeaning when the word is used to refer to a grown woman, so I was just curious. Chill.

I wasn't aware I was upset, but thanks for letting me know? I guess?
