“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.

Minority Report “Fredi”
Posted Oct 15, 2015 by Dr. Winston O'Boogie
“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.”
