In the vast DC Comics Universe of super heroes, the rich mythology of Superman, the planet Krypton and the House of El is perhaps the most famous and instantly recognizable. Enter Supergirl (Melissa Benoist)! Born Kara Zor-El on the doomed planet Krypton, the preteen Kara escaped at the same time as the infant Kal-El, but didn't arrive on Earth until many years later after being lost in the Phantom Zone. Protected and raised by her adopted family, the Danvers, Kara grew up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex, and learned to hide the phenomenal powers she shares with her famous cousin. Years later, at age 24, living in National City and working as an assistant for Catco Worldwide Media mogul Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart), Kara has spent so many years trying to fit in that she forgot to ever stand out. All that changes when she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and become the hero she was always destined to be. With the help of Daily Planet photographer James Olsen, her bioengineer sister Alex, and the research of the super-secret, off-the-grid Department of Extra-Normal Operations (DEO) and its head Hank Henshaw, who are tasked with keeping the Earth safe from aliens, Kara takes to the skies to protect her world. Her foes include both a sinister extraterrestrial menace and the high-tech terrestrial threat of clever villains with powerful weaponry. Produced by Berlanti Productions (Arrow, The Flash, Pan), this one-hour drama is an epic action-adventure for the entire family. Combining the heart, humor and spectacle of a super hero series, with the week-to-week intrigue of the DEO's investigations, Kara's childhood memories of her time on Krypton and the sophisticated workplace dramedy of her secret identity at Catco, SUPERGIRL is charged with true epic storytelling -- bringing a strong female hero to television screens at long last.

Follows the DC formula quite creditably but this really is a well trodden road. The straightforwardness and honesty of Supergirl is accentuated repeatedly and the convoluted machinations of those around her make life more interesting than Supergirl's super strength and simple viewpoint can be. The seemingly continually changing love interest and range of the usual baddies keeps it interesting and life does get a bit complicated at times. Makes one wonder how she manages to fit it all in. There are a couple of jarring notes - you know, when someone does something really, really stupid that no-one would ever do outside a Sci-Fi TV serial, or there is a really urgent thing that someone needs to do, like now, and the characters slow down and have an intimate chat or belabour some point whilst the clock ticks down. It makes it all rather glossy and superficial. I purchased the BluRay disc with UV Digital copy and that opens up a whole world of woe that it is best not gone into. Suffice to say I am reviewing the whole cloud based digital movie world outside the MacUniverse rather negatively... Anyway this season set is fair value for money as there are 20 episodes. Excellent cliff hanger right at the end so we may see another season!
