New Year's resolutions for our favorite TV/movie characters

January 1st is coming soon, but we’re not the only people who can use 2017 as chance to start something new. Our favorite TV and movie characters should use the coming new year to better themselves too. Or at the very least, become less terrible. …To watch, I mean. I don’t care if someone is a good person, so long as they entertain me.

Supergirl: Always bet on green

When last week’s previews revealed the main plot of this episode would be an “underground alien fight club”, I must admit it looked like a pretty bland concept for an episode. And guess what? It actually is a pretty bland hour of TV, and another one of those unfortunate Supergirl episodes where…

Supergirl: I'm with President Wonder Woman

The President of the United States (Lynda Carter!) visits National City to sign a historic amnesty bill allowing all aliens to come out of hiding and live among us in peace. And by “aliens”, they mean aliens from other planets, but it’s hard to miss the obvious parallels to the other kind of aliens dominating the shitshow that is our current national political discourse.

Supergirl: Are there whites on Mars?

“Strange Visitor from Another Planet” (S1 E11) A White Martian comes to Earth hunting J’onn/Hank, bringing back painful memories of a Martian holocaust. Meanwhile, Cat’s son comes to town to become Kara’s love interest. Luckily, he’s already married to her.

“Blood Bonds” (S1 E09) The reset button gets pushed on Cat figuring out Supergirl’s secret identity, Non and Astra’s evil plot goes nowhere, and there’s an abnormal amount of people getting tied to chairs and beaten up.

Supergirl: The big Non-finale

“Hostile Takeover” (S1 E08) Supergirl’s evil Aunt Astra is back, and she’s brought along a much more verbose version of Non. But the true villain is whoever decided we needed another lighthearted Cat Grant-centric plot.

Supergirl: Jemm, and a hologram

“Human for a Day” (S1 E07). Supergirl loses her powers, but—surprise!—she’s still a hero without them. Meanwhile, the job of fighting this week’s obscure DC villain falls to Alex and Hank Henshaw, who finally reveals his true identity.
