Hello again, lovelies!
WELCOME TO MY (Kara Swanson’s) FIRST BLOG POST OF THE NEW YEAR! Ta da!
Now, to ring in the new year, what better way than to geek out over comics?
Or, more specifically, the Comics-based TV shows that are finally finished with their Winter break!
We’re got Arrow, coming back TODAY actually as Stephen Amell was so kind to give us an early reminder! (If you are into Arrow, follow this guy on Facebook/Twitter. Seriously. He’s the best.)
And there’s Flash returning on the 19…and Legends of Tomorrow premiering on the 21…Gotham coming back February 29…
And for Marvel’s bonanza, we have Daredevil season two releasing on Netflix on March 18….Agents of Shield on September 23…and Agent Carter (WOOT WOOT!) has been confirmed for a second season starting January 19!
Still, as exciting as all of these are, I’m here to talk about the comics-inspired show that has already started hitting our TVs. And stars a blonde who shares my first name.
And, yeah, she is related to this guy…
(Dwaaaa his face, though!)
Now, one of the things that I really love about this CBS show, is that it brings back the big-hearted, brightly-colored, and family friendly tone to superhero shows. While I certainly have a place in my heart for darker dramas like Arrow, Supergirl is something that I can watch with my nine-year-old sister, and enjoy it just as much as her.
Kara Danvers seems like your average young lady, working as a lowly assistant for media tycoon Cat Grant . On the surface, it would seem like running errands and making sure she doesn’t deliver Miz Grant’s coffee cold are the biggest challenges Kara faces.
However, that couldn’t be father from the truth!
With the help of a tech nerd named Winn whose witty sense of humor has quickly made him one of my favorite characters…
And a new incarnation of the cameraman who worked closely with Superman–Jimmy Olson…
The three of them work together to not only stop any earthly threats, but the other-worldly kind.
There’s these strange looking villains…(Someone likes red)
And this lady who we think is evil, and also happens to be related to Supergirl…
Its a bit complicated. And sometimes, you might feel like you’re free falling.
But, in the end, you’re always going to land on your feet. Because, if there’s one thing that sets this show apart, its a perky, determined and courageous young woman who can fly. #girlpower
This action-packed series with a vivid cast and unique villains is certainly one DC Comics show you don’t want to miss!
Have you ever seen Supergirl? What other books/shows do you enjoy that have a strong female character? Don’t forget to check out the second half of our #girlpower posts tomorrow! Adriana G. will be posting about Marvel’s Agent Carter.
Have a great one!
