DCs small universe is grand in scale with a dash of cheese. Supergirl has all the right elements, including a touch of camp, and this series truly puts her in the limelight, as she has had a bad wrap cinematically and television-wise to this point. The series is a plus, and really you dont need to watch the entire DC franchise (Arrow, The Flash) to understand Supergirl. It helps but not necessary. I encourage any super hero fan, especially those who enjoy a strong female lead, to watch this series.
Supergirl season 5 was all about Kara & Lena and the battle for Lena's soul.At the end of season 4,Lena learned in the worst way that Kara is Supergirl and has been lied to for years.Season 5 is the fallout.The drama was high in this storyline.The first part of the season was great but I thought this plotline was a little dragged out in the middle section of the season after the 100th episode but had a great ending.Unlike the other Arrowverse shows,Supergirl got to shoot most of its season finale before the pandemic forced shutdowns on shows which helped.The return of Lex Luthor in the second half of the season gave a nice pop.The weak aspect of the season was the big bad,Leviathan.I think the two different versions of Leviathan in the comics worked better than then TV version.I'm very excited for the upcoming final season of the show.Some nice special features and like the other Arrowverse shows,the whole Crisis crossover is included on its own disk.
That being said Jon Cryer nails lex luthor and shout out to the writing team for finally writing Lex perfectly. Very political wouldn't recommend for younger viewers unless you want to have adult conversations about transgendering but the show delivers in my opinion its best season yet and the cross over is the best one ever. Melissa shines bright as Supes cousin youll want this in your collection if you are a DC fanatic.
