Not so super
The first Supergirl extended trailer was released yesterday and, as much as I was looking forward to this show in the Fall, I'm a wee bit concerned now.
Here is the trailer...
My first impression was that it felt a little like an episode of Gossip Girl, if one of the girls just happened to be a Superhero. The dialog sounds kind of cheesy, Calista Flockhart (as much as I enjoy her) seems like she's just playing a bitchier version of Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada, and the effects don't appear to be that much better than old The Greatest American Hero TV show from the early 80's.
A second, shorter, trailer was also released earlier today and it was SO much better...it focused more on the action without all the cheesy chatter. Unfortunately, CBS pulled it a few hours ago.
I want to like it. I want it to be good. I want it to be at least a little...super.
However, like The Flash and Arrow...I'll give it a couple of episodes in the fall and decide from there.
UPDATED: This review of the pilot gives me new hope.
