You Have Been Warned

Supergirl is back for season 3. I enjoyed the first episode, though, as ever with villains of the week, the bad guy was lame.

I detected a shift somewhere in it though, and I can’t put my finger on it. There was a focus on character that makes me suspect it was not only setting up the plot arc for the season, but also the development arc for our heroine too, and there was a tad more seriousness about it too. By that I don’t mean an overt shift to more adult concerns, but an intent to up its game.

From what I’ve seen of the other DC/CW series, Supergirl is the (only) one that could become something more than formulaic and has the cast to carry it off. Fingers crossed, although I suspect the generic fanbase for these shows is happy to accept the glossy mediocrity of super-hero TV.
