Part 2 of our 3 Superhero Movie Festival just so happens to be our 200th podcast episode! Congratulations to us! Sadly the movie, Supergirl, does not contain any of the fanfare that revolves around our momentous milestone. It's just one of the most boring, uneventful films ever made.
There are so many problems with Supergirl. The first and foremost is that absolutely nothing happens of interest. It's truly unwatchable in the level of bore. Make something happen guys...anything.
Secondly, it breaks its own rules constantly. First is the entire franchise. Superman's home of Krypton got exploded and he was the only survivor right? Well Supergirl is his cousin, which is fine. But the total lack of exposition about how she exists is troubling. She and a group of others who may or may not be Kryptonian live in the bottom of a lake in Minnesota (in micro-size, none the less). So did they get there before Krypton exploded? They've been on Earth this whole time? Shouldn't they have the powers of the yellow sun as well? Who are these people?
Thirdly, it's horrendously offensive towards women. The "plot" is two women with unlimited power, the two most powerful beings on the planet, and all they do with their power is try to get a man. Seriously. It's a cat fight over a hunky gardener. Its saying women only need a man, even if they are given all the gifts in the world...still only care about getting a man. "Hey girls, how bout putting the Macy's card down for a minute and go do the dishes?" Ugh...assholes.
There is nothing complimentary to this film. It is a true turd and should be left in the bin that says "Do NOT use".
We want to say thank you to all our fans that have stayed with us through these 200 episodes. We started out with just a USB condenser mic, so much uhms, people talking over each other, yelling, the crappiest logo and no editing. Today we've got over $1000 in recording equipment, multitrack recording, 30,000+ downloads, so many awesome people we've met and had guest on our show and more knowledge of the genre than maybe any other podcast. Thank you, thank you, thank you for listening and being a part of what we do.
