“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.

“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.”
“Aaaand it basically looks like a watermelon with a handle. I guess the Slavers took juicing very seriously. ”
“In this article (and in the article that will follow it), I plan to educate you on why the writers should have steered clear of another Felger-type writing misstep of ‘Avenger 2.0’-size proportions... and decided not to. Twice. Don’t these guys learn the first time?”
“While it isn’t the worst concept for an episode ever, it’s still not winning fan love, twelve years after it aired. Okay, so maybe some fans love it, but this fan cringes over the existence of it.”
“It would seem the very first holodeck episode in the Star Trek franchise also features the very first holodeck malfunction.”
“Five seconds in, and this script and science have already officially parted ways.”
