Supergirl S3E13 Review: “Both Sides Now”

Team Supergirl goes after Purity with all the subtlety of Johnny Weir’s hair! The show gets a villian who’s as interesting as her alter-ego for a change, Mon-El and Imra carry the CW drama for the week, and Alex seems to be prone to drastic changes in behavior from one scene to the next.

Supergirl S3E12 Review: “For Good”

Multiple assassination attempts! The reappearance of Lena’s annoying mother, who has the virtue of at least being more interesting than Edge. Oh, and what’s up with Sam/Reign’s physiology?

David Schaub with Brianna Taeuber

Supergirl S3E11 Review: “Fort Rozz”

In the course of discussing this episode, our panel inaugurates a new segment called “Super Science!”, in which eye-roll inducing scientific whoppers are properly called out. In this case, gender-deterministic stellar radiation is chief offender, but there are several other contenders. All in service of a solid episode, funnily enough.

Trish Matson with Michael Gabriel and David Schaub

Supergirl S3E10 Review: “Legion of Super-Heroes”

The effectiveness of glasses and masks as disguises in the Berlantiverse is discussed, along with the general “Meh” opinion of Reign as a character. Also, maybe an explanation of Legion Rings would’ve been nice?

Dan Drusch with Kelly Guimont, Brianna Taeuber and Alan Yu

Supergirl S3E9 Review: “Reign”

Our panel discusses the Season 3 mid-season finale, covering Sam’s lack of work/super-villain balance, the possibility of finding a non-spiked beverage at Kara’s Holiday Party, and Supergirl’s failure to take her fight with Reign to somewhere other than a city full of people.

David Schaub with Brianna Taeuber and Dan Drusch

Supergirl S3E8 Review: “Crisis on Earth-X”

Our panel discusses the 4-part crossover in a slightly jumbo episode. Topics under consideration are the fact that the bad guys get the best lines, Snart is entirely awesome, and who decided on the Earth numbering scheme, anyway?

Michael Gabriel with Trish Matson, David Schaub, Brianna Taeuber and Jess Viator

Supergirl S3E7 Review: “Wake Up”

Our panel briefly discusses Martian bladder capacity, Mon-El’s evasiveness, and Sam’s disappointing “waking” to become Reign.

Trish Matson with David Schaub

Supergirl S3E6 Review: “Midvale”

Our panel questions why the kids at Midvale High are oddly meh about the murder (or even just death) of a student, the fact that apparently of everyone at the DEO, only J’onn J’onzz owns a car, and the vagaries of Alex and Kara coming to terms with their recent relationship trouble.

Also, Trish is clearly not over the Maggie-Alex breakup, because she just can’t stop calling Alex “Maggie.”

Trish Matson with Alan Yu, Brianna Taeuber and Scott Grizzle

Supergirl S3E5 Review: “Damage”

Our panel discusses the polysyllabic chemicals and Morgan Edge’s questionable plans to profit from causing death and destruction in his city, along with Alex and Maggie’s breakup as an example of grownups behaving like grownups, something the CW doesn’t always specialize in.

Trish Matson with Brianna Taeuber, Jess Viator and David Schaub

Supergirl S3E4 Review: “The Faithful”

Our panel tries, unsuccessfully, to untangle the logic of Coville’s Cult of Rao/Supergirl, comparing them to the Appalachian snake handlers. (The Supergirl Supercast does not endorse throwing snakes at people.) They also mull possible ways for Maggie and Alex to get past the whole having children or not having children thing.

Trish Matson with Mandy Self and Brianna Taeuber

Supergirl S3E3 review: “Far from the Tree”

Martians do what Martians do. Join a trio of Incomparable listeners as they break down the latest “Supergirl.” Topics discussed: Weaponized Britney Spears music, shape-shifting technology, which isn’t a thing, and Maggie and J’onn J’onzz’s daddy issues.

Michael Gabriel with Dan Drusch and David Schaub
