If she can handle all these villains, what need is there for Superman?
Sounds like a legit concern. Though as someone who never watched Supergirl, it may not have much of an effect on my viewing experience.
Superman is much more popular, so maybe they are aiming this at folks like me, while saving themselves some casting time and money.

Really kind of seems like this writer lady was like, "B-b-b-but important SJW issues! Bechdel test and these other ones, blah blah" and was politely told to stfu. Which is... shocking. For CW. I want to say "maybe they've learned?" but I'm hesitant.
ya That chick wanted to make ma and pa Kent Black stating clark is adopted so it doesn't matter the race of his parents or some stupid **** like that. Than CW showed her the door

Sorry you lost your job. Sounds like you were a pain to work with. Goodbye.

Maybe I'm a little cold, but I'm pretty much done with anyone taking their job complaints to Twitter. I get that it can be a powerful change for movement, but I don't think that's what is happening here.

It was pretty good. Woe Park is a great addition to the show. I really enjoyed Tyler being able to shine with no Supergirl (nothing negative against Melissa!) there to one up him constantly. Hopefully this show remains WOKE free because it has the makings to be really good.

This Chick: "This show doesn't have enough black people."
CW: "Well, to be fair... there really aren't a ton of them in rural Kansas, where the show is set. Or in Canada, where the show is filmed. So maybe..."
This Chick: "THEN LET'S PRETEND THERE ARE! MUH DIVERSITY! What is the POINT of even having a show without MUH DIVERSITY?!?!"
CW: "...Okay, don't call us, we'll call you."

I think I will give this show a try even though I haven't been able to stick to any of the previous CW DC shows.

Maybe this weekend when I have some time.

I love how shows get renewed one episode into their entire existence.

"Hey, people watched our pilot episode! Sign that sh!t for three more seasons!"

Which makes me VERY suspicious about what's to come in the next 4 or 5 episodes. VERY suspicious.

Like, we're being baited with a nice politics/identity politics-free appetizer... but the main course is on its way. It's coming. A great big woke, SJW sandwich.

Superman and Lois episode 2

Who ate all the pies Jor-El?

Cushing with the air guitar on the whisky...damn they're making it hard to not like the guy sometimes

Lois taking charge of the family and nullifying an argument before it can escalates was the perfect tonic to predictable CW antics. Keep that sort of thing with the teens and not the family. Well done.

Sam keeping all the kryptonite stashed for Clark's 'protection'...nah, totally a precaution in he cases he goes rogue. Clark should have just said that to him, but, y'know, boundaries with the relatives.

And god damn the ending...Injustice? Crime Syndicate? Knightmare? A little of all three?

It is really weird how every single show gets "renewed" after its first episode nowadays.

I guess it's not a "problem" except for all the really good shows of years' past which never had any chance to reach a satisfying resolution or conclusion because "the numbers" said it wasn't worth doing any more of them and so they were cancelled prematurely. Nowadays it's like "F*ck it, we're doing This Many and if people don't watch then oh well." Like, why does Batwoman get infinite chances despite the fact nobody watches it, but it took 24 years for more Twin Peaks? It all feels rather arbitrary.

Black Batwoman getting canned equals a Woke riot. I hate to say that but when ratings are that bad, how else can a show survive on terrible ratings, even for CW.
I know.

Yeah well, it’s what popped up and i didnt check the site for legitimacy and when I saw Leo’s post, I just went with it.

But we all know the show sucks without needing ratings to confirm that. Just trying to figure out why it’s still on.

Saw episode 2. Long term I can see the whiny kids thing wearing me down but a pretty solid episode.

Is all the "hell" stuff a clue that this will end up being a loose adaptation of the H'El storyline? With Superman's evil brother or somesuch?
