The Flash crosses over from the CW to hang with Supergirl, and this superhero team-up is basically everything that Batman v Superman was not. For starters, there's ice cream for everybody.
The film (and perhaps the Wachowskis’ directing career) comes to a perfunctory end as we learn that while being ruler of a galactic empire might be nice, it can never compare to cleaning toilets for a living.
It's a clip show, only without the clips, as the origin stories of our main characters are revealed for... well, definitely not for the first time.
It's the obligatory "superhero turns evil" episode as Kara gets exposed to Red Kryptonite. Also: loving references to one of the worst comic book movies ever! But no Kara vs. Supergirl junkyard fight, sadly.
This non-comedy gets a suitable non-ending as all the plot threads we’ve been following for six months devolve into a terrible musical number and the strangest closing credits in history.
It's new Supergirl vs. old Supergirl as Laura Vandervoort guest stars as an evil blue alien who is definitely not Mystique. Also, if you're interested in not becoming a supervillain, stay the heck away from Winn; he's a bit of a bad-luck charm.
Jupiter finally meets the main villain of the film, and it feels like a complete afterthought. But on the plus side, somebody in this movie will win an “award” for his acting.
“Roger Ebert would often espouse the notion that there are no good movies featuring hot air balloons. I’d like to think he was watching Skidoo at the time he formulated this theory.”
Supergirl gets a new rival at work, faces another bottom-tier Superman villain, and this show again proves it understands the Superman Family way better than the DC movies.
Jupiter and Titus are about to get married, but to the shock of no one, Titus has sinister motives. Cue “Mrs. Robinson” on the soundtrack as Caine rushes to stop the wedding.
Supergirl loosely adapts a classic Superman story from the ‘80s (emphasis on loosely), but mostly uses it to advance Astra and Non’s evil plans, which come perilously close to actually making sense.
“This is the first time I can say that a writer probably got his lyrics out of a trash can, and be completely accurate.”
A third-tier comic book villain used to advance various romantic subplots? Sounds like an episode of Supergirl.
“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.

“Childish Things” (S1 E10) Winn’s dad AKA the Toyman appears at long last. Was it worth the wait? Knowing this show, do you even have to ask?

Fans today might be under the impression the historic Kirk-Uhura kiss resulted in boycotts, death threats, and mass hysteria, but the contemporary record tells a different story.
“Nora Clavicle and the Ladies’ Crime Club” (S3 E19) It’s the 50th anniversary of the premiere of Batman starring Adam West and Burt Ward, and what better way to celebrate than by recapping an episode where it really shows its age?
