Supergirl saves an anti-alien senator that sounds a tad like Donald Trump from a mysterious monster – who it turns out has killed Hank’s family and entire race on Mars back in the day. Kara writes to Cat’s estranged son, Adam, AS Cat! Cat throws down! But somehow Adam ends up asking Kara out on a date – Hel-lo!!
Take a listen and feel free to share with all your friends. On second thought, don’t just “feel free” to share… just do it! We’ve got a Clammr button/Share Clip on the podcast and it’s a great way to share a snippet of our podcast on social media, too.
Good forest fire CGI as we start off the episode with Supergirl saving an Hispanic-looking family living in a very old trailer out in the forest. I noticed right away because there are so few Hispanics on the screen and I’m Hispanic. The best portrayal we have right now is Cisco on CW’sThe Flash – who represents both the Hispanic community and everything that is awesome about Geeks.
“…post-rescue swagger” 😎
Kara is going through the age-old bane of all girls in their high school, college, and beyond years… Your guy friend like likes you and you don’t like him back. Girls always mean it when they say, “Can we still be friends?” But guys never do. We’ll see how it goes with Winn since he’s actually a cast member on the show, he can’t just ride off into the sunset to lick his wounds… Or can he?
And then immediately, Kara meets a potential new love interest in the coffee shop… Like never happens in real life. We know… We podcast in a coffee shop!
And, seriously?! Kara is really THAT naive to not recognize such BLATANT flirting?
Cat Grant has the reputation where she “breathes fire and eats babies” 😉
The anti-alien rally shows parallels with our country’s own illegal alien struggles right now. Is that you, Sheriff Joe?
Cat Grant: to the Supergirl version of Sheriff Joe, “She is a lightning rod for bigots, hippies, and aliens, and yes, that is the order in which I detest them.”
Cat is STILL calling Kara, Kiera… Too funny.
Cat Grant: “You better get us a quote that will offend virtually everyone.” Yes, The Hometown Geek believes very much that is what the media is instructed to do on a daily basis.
No humanizing moments for Cat Grant last episode, they’re saving them all up for this one. Adam… The Feels.
Cat’s constant back and forth with Kara reminds me of The Dread Pirate Roberts in The Princess Bride, “I’ll most likely kill/fire you in the morning.” Kara keeps getting to keep her job, just like Wesley kept getting to keep his life.
Winn: “Just don’t. Please.” 🙁 😥 😳
Senator Crane about aliens: “We need to know where they live, what they do, and WHO they eat.” Hmmm… Fear monger much? Or maybe she’s seen V: The Miniseries?
