“How Does She Do It?” (S1 E04) The episode they didn’t want you to see last week finally airs, and maybe it’s still a little too soon? Also, Supergirl faces her own cut-rate version of the Unabomber while watching Cat Grant’s son.
“Livewire” (S1 E05) Thanksgiving is the third week of November in National City, apparently, as Supergirl takes on a villain from the DCAU who becomes her lamest foe yet.
“Fight or Flight” (S1 E03) Supergirl reveals to the world that she’s Superman’s cousin (which the world somehow didn’t already know) and becomes the target of an old Superman foe.
“Stronger Together” (S1 E02) Or, “Supergirl Relearns”. Supergirl causes an ecological disaster and realizes she sucks, so she enlists her friends to help her learn how to be a superhero... for the second time in as many weeks.
“Pilot” (S1 E01) For the first time in a long time, we get aspects of the Superman mythos onscreen not weighted down by angst or failed attempts at achieving Christopher Nolan and/or Frank Miller levels of grimness.
“Well, this is it. This is the final episode of Minority Report... that I’ll be recapping until I move on to another show.”
“Is this a watch that warns him about a future murder or a watch that warns him about a future case of the squirts? Because let’s face it, both of those would be equally useful.”
“The woman from Central insists, ‘this is not Precrime!’ It’s just... preventing crimes before they happen. Completely different.”
“So for those keeping track, he’s cool with Vega falsifying a police report about a double homicide, but peeking at personal data is a bridge too far.”
“This show’s premise is a bit like doing a TV sequel to Flowers for Algernon where Charlie is played by a sexy 30-something male model-type who uses his newly heightened IQ to solve crimes.”
“In Pinkie Pie’s world, you can never have too much of anything!”
“Oh sweet, sweet freedom of being home alone! Now she can walk around naked just as much as she wants! But then again, Apple Bloom is already naked all the time. Huh. Well, I’m all out of good things to say about being home alone now.”
“So really, Fluttershy could have potentially committed genocide on all of these small things with her kindness. Isn’t there a Doctor Who episode with that theme?”
“The last time we had a Cutie Mark Crusaders episode, we got a long wished for and well-handled character exploration. This time... we have children going nuts. Joy.”
“What Fluttershy has isn’t ordinary stage fright, or performance anxiety. It’s performance paranoia!”
“To this show’s credit, it handles the love triangle plot way better in a twenty-minute episode than a certain billion-dollar Hollywood franchise did in five movies.”
