    Here's the first look at Supergirl, I think this has some potential!


    @ARM @GLguygardner what say you?

    Why is Jimmy Olson now a black dude? Ug, and that horrible pop music at the end. :facepalm:

    I'm a DC fan though, so I'll give it a chance. I never thought I'd say this, but I think I'm starting to burn out from all the superhero shows and movies.

    I had the same thoughts on the PC James Olson, but I really want to give this show a chance. if they put money into it and use good comic book writers, I really feel like it has potential, because not many fans know Kara's story and it's almost more interesting than Clark's.

    Look, I'm happy that there is a dearth of quality super hero shows right now. Hopefully the cream will rise to the top...

    I don't care about a black Jimmy, but he is not supposed to be cool and smooth like that...

    Otherwise, it really looks like a chick flick, I am not sure to like it, but Kara had some great lines in the trailer (The "Oh cmon" line was so Supergirl, this girl is already Supergirl for me....

    what are the chances that the show will be about a bitchy, feminist, hot chick and a kind and noble black man who has suffered the indignities of living in america with black skin...



    can't wait.

    Well, now I don't have to watch it after viewing that Reader's Digest promo. If every television episode was 6 minutes long I might start watching TV again.

    Why isn't Jimmy (oops, I mean James) Olsen Puerto Rican? Fuckin' racist casting directors.

    Looks like they have all the points covered. Let's see, behind the scenes guy who makes gadgets/costume? Check. Going from unsure "but what good could I ever do" character to full blown confident hero? Check. Government doesn't trust her even though she's doing the right thing? Check.

    Looks pretty damn predictable to me. I bet any of us could write it.

    She did some crap to her face and she's still too skinny, but it seems to fit her character. I like it.

    Is she still banging Harrison Ford's old corpse?

    Oh, I forgot one other bullet point to my list. Take an established side character and make him black, or into a female. Or a black female. Or vice versa.

    The superhero TV show formula.

    *All show trailers must have crappy pop "Dawson's Creek" type music.

    *The main character has to go from unsure underdog type to full blown hero. Usually this means friends or associates help talk him/her into it.

    *Have rich Lex Luthor type villain. Make sure he/she is an over the top asshole.

    *Have a "behind the scenes" guy or team that comes up with gadgets and costumes.

    *Make sure one of the main characters from established storyline is repackaged as black dude or a woman.

    *Even though the hero is good, have the government distrust him/her. They will create gadgets and various weapons to try and stop the hero. Sometimes an untrusting alliance will have to form for the greater good of stopping a powerful villain. This will end with the government double crossing the unsuspecting hero.

    *Awkward love triangles. Hero is too shy to admit true feelings. Drama ensues.

    *Over reliance on bad CGI.

    Let's see, what else...
