    I may have missed it, too, but I think he's just off being Superman and giving her space. It does seem kind of callous of Superman not giving her more guidance, but if the show isn't going to be able to use Superman more than in silhouette, then I guess it works about as good as anything. I guess sending his best pal to watch out for her is his way of caring.
    Superman dumped her in an orphanage in her first story...so this makes him look kind in that regard.

    I enjoyed most of it, even the new James Olson (who I thought was going to suck, but turned out to be surprisingly likable).

    Melissa Benoist is PERFECT as Kara/Supergirl...just as adorable as Helen Slater was in the 80s.

    Love the overall comic book feel...more Christopher Reeve than Henry Cavill.

    The effects were pretty cool, not quite top notch had it been a movie, but impressive for TV fair.

    A couple of issues though..

    ...as most of you have mentioned...not saying Superman (except for the very beginning when Kara does) throughout the show did get irritating after a while...and this was constant. If they don't want to say the name Superman...then just ignore Supes altogether.

    I don't know how long I'm going to put up with Calissa Flockhart and her Devil Wears Prada act, she was annoying me...having said that...she was nothing compared to that Henshaw dude...holy Jesus mother of God...I hated that character. Please, either tone it down a bit...or have him killed...I can't stand him.

    Kara's sister also annoyed me at first, but glad she softened up in the end.

    The episode was not perfect (agreed on the rushed villain/villains), but Benoist was...what a fantastic piece of casting...I'm just going to keep watching it just because of her...she's too damn bloody adorable, ha...

    Yeah, but the show made it sound like she hadn't seen him in person since he dropped her off with the Danvers. Superman, at least, had a relationship with her in the comics. The show is up against the wall with not really being able to use Superman that much. It was probably as good a solution as any. Stuff like this probably doesn't even register to the general viewership.

    Agreed; her likability factor is off the charts.

    As I have said before, give in a few episodes before you decide to trash it. As a Comic Book show we should all give it a 5 episode chance to see how it goes.

    For those who complain about the not calling him Superman:

    Fans of the show should feel encouraged. It was a huge ratings hit. Here's the story...

    Anyone disappointed that Vartox didn't look like Sean Connery in a speedo?

    Couple of things;
    If the movie DC universe can create their own Flash, why can't the TV one at least say "Superman"? I also am not sold on the support team concept being used yet again. It works for Flash. Not a fan of it on Arrow ( who should really be more of a lone wolf), and the upcoming series is also going to sport one (which may include Barry's dad!?)It may turn out better than I expect, but does Supergirl really need to be working with Hank and crew?

    I'm guessing that since it seems to be a formula that's working with THE FLASH and ARROW, the minds behind SUPERGIRL just decided it would be a good idea to carry it over on this show, too. I'm in agreement that Kara needs to fly primarily solo, perhaps with an occasional assist from Henshaw and Co.
    Oh then, what's this? Big flashy lighty thing, that's what brought me here! Big flashy lighty things have got me written all over them. Not actually. But give me time. And a crayon.
