TV Review: Supergirl "Pilot"

Superman's cousin makes capes fun again. Review by Brandon Wolfe We open on an extremely familiar scene. The planet Krypton is in the final throes of self-destruction and a tearful couple is placing their baby into a small spacecraft with promises of the child’s survival and prosperity on the distant world of Earth. The scene that comes directly after, however, is less familiar. A young girl is also being dispatched into the stars by her parents, with the explicit instructions to guard that baby in the new world.

Kara ultimately finds herself immersed in a thankless job
