I'm stepping away from watching Supergirl, which is a pity since I loved the first season as campy and wonky in pacing it was there was never any doubt the central pivot of the show was Kara Zor-el | Danvers and her family.

I feel like something got lost moving from CBS to CW.

I loved the first few episodes of Supergirl, which seemed to fix its pacing issues but then the focus seemed to shift away from Kara and we have less screen time between Kara, Alex, and Hank. I miss Kara in CatCo, about Kara learning to be a journalist.

Kara's boss, Snapper Carr is awesome in the comics and in the show, doesn't even touch how cool he was, and gets less screen time. M'gann Morzz was written off and don't even mention the weirdness that they're hinting a romantic connection between J'onn and M'gann when in other universes they were always Uncle and Niece.

There's screen time of people I like actually gets reduced more.

The arc of the show is disjointed-- next week Jeremiah Danvers appears again after the show drops any mention of Jeremiah and Alex's search for her father.

In-universe, I blame this all on the Flashpoint affecting Kara's universe but in real life, I blame it on the writers.

The one good thing about this show was Alex's story with Maggie.

I'll come back after the season but right now, the show is more disappointing every episode and when I come to the point when the disappointment out weigh the happy, its time to stop.

On a happier note, it's Sameen Shaw day!

So here's a fanvid I made for Shaw way back when!
