It’s no big secret that Supergirl is one of my two favorite DC superhero shows on the CW. The other is The Flash, of course. The two series share some common traits. Their titular heroes are, by and large, positive-minded and classically heroic, in the comic book sense of the word “hero.” And they are […]Read more "Supergirl: Season 3 — a review"
