Supergirl & Valor

It's Tuesday October 10, 2017...

Last night prior to streaming Bendy & The Ink Machine Chapter 3 (highlights which can be found here) I watched the season premier of Supergirl and the series premier of Valor both airing on the CW.


It's been six months since the deal with the Daxam Invasion... and Kara is basically pulling a Barry Allen with a pity party of wanting to cut off from everyone around her and just focusing on being Supergirl...and this was really not a good way to start off the new season, even though it was a necessary evil considering everything.  The real issue is that just about everyone is telling her to get over it when they know it was her decision, her choice to use the lead device which forced Mon-El to leave. There were some positives in the episode such as the unveiling of the Supergirl statue, Lena buying CatCo to keep it out of a rival's hands and more of the silly domestic drama of Sawyer and Danvers.


I was looking forward to this show, as I think there is a lot of stories that can be told over the course of half-season series to build up to a big special ops season finale, but I feel a little let down with the execution here We are introduced to our main characters, and not one of them is really all that likeable or interesting, and it seems like Valor will focus on the double-lives these characters have with keeping secrets of professional and personal natures away from loved ones. Case in point, the character of Nora is clearly in a relationship but before the episode even ends it's teased there will be something hot and heavy with someone who isn't her boyfriend.
