I think the standout strength of the series is Melissa Benoist – and I’m certainly not alone in highlighting this. She’s absolutely perfect for the role of Kara, having created a character who’s genuinely endearing and a delight to watch. More than that, though, she really captures that bright and cheerful optimism that, to my mind, is so essential for a hero. Of course, Benoist isn’t limited to just charming awkwardness – she has real range as an actress, which goes a long way towards depicting Kara as a nuanced, three dimensional character.
This one is, in fact, yesterday’s article! It’s a review of Supergirl, which I have really, really enjoyed this past year. Watched it with my pal Gibbs, and it was lots of fun to discuss it with him each week. Certainly, it’s been my favourite of all the DC TV offerings over the past year. Excellent stuff.
