VIDEO: Supergirl (1984)
Christopher Reeve quit the Superman franchise (temporarily, alas) leaving the Salkinds with only one option: find a Superman side character to fuck up just as bad. And so they begat Supergirl, starring Helen Slater as Kara Zor-El and Faye Dunaway as evil sorceress Selena (essentially, Joan Crawford without the scary eyebrows) in this stunningly awful, TV movie-level production that doesn’t care the slightest bit about the Supergirl character, superheroes in general, or fundamental concepts of product placement.
