For many, this will come as a surprise. One of the reasons is because the show has seemed to struggle in the ratings department. Some even feel that the show’s superhero counterparts (Arrow, The Flash) are far more ahead as far as story telling goes. But one thing is for sure, numbers don’t lie. And if there is one thing that the show has been doing right, it’s in the viewership department. On average, The Flash pulls in about 4 million viewers while Supergirl brings in about 6-7 million. People are definitely watching the show. In the end, that’s what seems to matter the most.
Now that Supergirl is coming back for a second season, what does this mean for the show going forward? The fear of not knowing if your show will be coming back for another season probably does a number on the writers telling the story. For example, the first season of Arrow wasn’t the greatest thing on Earth when it premiered. But as the seasons have gone on, the show has gotten progressively better. And as many of you all should know, Arrow is another Greg Berlanti production. Hopefully, people will be saying the same thing for Supergirl in the future.
Many people don’t know who this person is. So watching episodes that really explore who Supergirl is are the best. Some great examples are “Human For A Day” and “Hostile Takeover.” So if you haven’t seen them yet, go check them out. “Hostile Takeover” has one of the best scenes of the series thus far.
