Supergirl Sneak Peek / by Craig Kerbrat

Happy Saturday! I say that in hopes that this day will improve. Not that it's a bad day necessarily. I'm just suffering from mega allergies and I don't like it. Anyway.

Because I'm a giant nerd, I felt like I needed to nerd out a bit about the special sneak peek for Supergirl that came out earlier this week. If you haven't seen it yet, here it is. Watch it. Go ahead, I'll wait. 

Done? Okay, good. I'm not gonna lie, for some reason, this trailer got me a little bit emotional. I'm not really sure why. Maybe it's 'cause I'm feeling a bit sick, or maybe it's just 'cause it's that awesome. In any case, I am very excited for this show to be released in the fall. I hope there's a panel for it at Comic-Con this year...

And let's talk about the casting! Melissa Benoist is adorable as Kara. She's not who I would have initially thought to cast in the role, but she really seems perfect for it. And I love that Chyler Leigh, who played Lexie Grey in Grey's Anatomy, is playing Alex Danvers. I always loved her on Grey's, so hopefully I'll love her in this show too.  And Calista Flockhart as Cat Grant! Very exciting. Not to mention Helen Slater and Dean Cain as mommy and daddy Danvers. I can't wait!

It's funny, I am a diehard Marvel fan, but DC characters make for such great TV shows. I always loved Smallville when it was on the air, and the old Lois & Clark show was great. Gotham, Arrow, and the Flash are all great, and Legends of Tomorrow looks to be a lot of fun as well. So many awesome DC properties have been very successful on TV. So I really hope Supergirl is as good as it looks.

Anyway. There are plenty of other things I could probably talk about, but I feel my mind wandering so I'm going to leave it here. I think it's time to finally watch the season finale of Arrow...
