Hey there guys, we’ve been seeing the activity and the link share, we have other new info that might be fun, but we’ve been dormant for a while because we were so TIRED! The covid TV schedule was not kind on reviewers and we needed to rest and recover. That said, the shows are about to return and we are starting to wake from hibernation, hang with us, we’ll be back soon.
You will give the people of Earth an ideal to strive towards. They will race behind you, they will stumble, they will fall. But in time, they will join you in the sun, Kal. In time, you will help them accomplish wonders.

The Best Arrowverse Moments of 2021

From Superman & Lois' premiere to a new Batwoman arriving, the Arrowverse was packed with memorable moments this year. Here are the best.

BY SAM STONE

The CW's Arrowverse marked 2021 as a year with beginnings and endings as several fan-favorite series came to a close while others made their big debut or charted new directions within the shared television universe. From The Flash kicking off its eighth season with the "Armageddon" crossover event to Black Lightning and Supergirl taking their respective last bow, there were plenty of major moments that got audiences talking as DCTV clocked in another successful year of buzzworthy scenes and developments.

Here are the five biggest events to come to the Arrowverse across 2021 as the iconic DC heroes enjoyed new beginnings and epic finales as they continued to defend the shared television universe.

Supergirl Closes On A Hopeful, Loving Note

https://static3.cbrimages.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2021/11/supergirl-alex-kelly-wedding.jpg

Supergirl has always been a show about seeking the truth, more specifically, seeking the truth in regards to love in all of its forms. This was made all the more evident by Supergirl's sixth and final season, with the first half of the season involving reunions between friends and family after Kara was stranded in the Phantom Zone while the second half saw Alex Danvers and Kelly Olsen build a family of their own.

This culminated in Supergirl's series finale that centered on Alex and Kelly's wedding while J'onn J'onzz and M'Gann prepare to take their romance to the next level. Amidst all the returning characters from seasons past, including a surprise reappearance by Cat Grant, the series concluded with its commitment to the truth as Kara publicly came clean about both sides of her identity to live a fuller life -- though some fans were vocally frustrated about where the finale left Kara's love life.

I couldn’t find a link directly but Bleedingcol.com has a link to Michael Rosenbaum's Inside of You podcast with Azie Tesfai where they discussed a wide range of topics- and in particular, what it was like writing the episode, being a part of the long-running Arrowverse series, and more.

As bleedingcool is want to do the headline is misleading when it references the “problem with Supergirl”. “Tesfai relays the "origin story" that led to her writing "Blind Spots;" the episode's message of empowerment by showing that even the best intentions on the meta's parts can contribute to a much bigger problem:” The problem the episode tackles is how superheroes with the best of intentions can contribute to the very problems they want to help with, the heroes have blind spots just like everyone does. And that IMO is how “Blind Spots” contributed to the season as a whole and Kara helping people become their own heroes instead of feeling she had to carry the weight of the world on her shoulders.

The Arrowverse show’s final battle was a bit rushed and all over the place, but it didn’t take away from the rest of the hour, which was a lovely celebration of our heroes. Alex and Kelly’s beautiful wedding gave our heroes a chance to breathe after a high-stakes fight, and we could think of no better way to end the hour than with Cat Grant making her long-awaited return to reveal Kara’s superhero identity to the world. Overall, it was a nice sendoff for longtime fans.
TVFanatic seems to agree.

What do good TV shows and bad TV shows have in common -- they all come to an end.

This year we had to bid farewell to some fan favorites and some we didn't even have a chance to be fans of before cancellation.

The real question is whether these finales provided a satisfying resolution for their respective series?

Scroll down to find out which shows made our best and worst list.

Supergirl - Best
Supergirl had one of the best series finales this year.

The final episode brought back fan-favorites Winn, Mon-El, and James to help defeat Lex.

Everyone was there for Alex and Kelly's wedding day. Brainy realized he loved Nia more than the future and returned, declaring his love for her.

And our heroine, Kara, finally decided to have it all. She became editor-in-chief of CatCo with Cat Grant and came clean about being Supergirl.

I agree with the grade and the summary in this. Part 1 had thrills but was here there and everywhere. Part 2, even with the wedding (I promise to not go into some rant as after all I am Catholic!), we had final character development, a bit of a dance party (with one of the many [un]official theme songs of the Danvers Sisters, Sister Sledge's 1979 smash "We Are Family.";). But lastly...WE HAD CAT GRANT RETURN to unveil Supergirl to the world. A bit of an ironic twist on what Superman did to Supergirl in Action Comics #285 in February 1962.

YEAR IN REVIEW

18 Series Finales From 2021, Graded

By Team TVLine / December 26 2021

With over 80 shows having ended this year, we definitely said goodbye to many, many comedies and dramas in 2021. But not every single one of them was intended to be a farewell, and even those that were didn’t always hit the mark.

Below, TVLine has gathered more than a dozen planned series enders that stood out — for better or for worse — from the past 12 months. Among our selections, you’ll find several broadcast faves like NBC’s Superstore and CBS’ Mom, a pair of CW superheroes, and critical darlings Pose and PEN15. We’ve also singled out the final hours of Shameless, The Bold Type, Lucifer and Wynonna Earp — but is that a good thing? You’ll just have to read on to find out!

NOTE: THE FOLLOWING FINALES ARE NOT RANKED. Rather, the grades chosen reflect how each TV show did (or did not) stick the landing based on their respective runs. Also, as stated above, we did not grade every single series finale from the past year, but instead chose a select few series that ended on their own terms.

Scroll down to see which finales made their mark on Team TVLine, then share your opinions on the best (and worst) series sign-offs of 2021.

Esme leaves a little Christmas gift.

The adorable Mila Jones on her Instagram has left a little video montage for Azie Tesfai on her recent birthday. And included in this is some behind the scenes of the series finale...INCLUDING A LITTLE DANCING FROM A CERTAIN M-B.

Here's the dancing in question...

And...I always though Melissa was an NSYNC FAN.

This may be the last time I say it but...SHE'S SO SILLY!!!!!! :p :p :p :p :p

Azie said they redo S6 3 times, because of all the different reasons, and in her head she thought they wouldn't go ahead with her episode anymore. But she kept showing up at the writers' room, pitching ideas.


ETA,

just listened to the podcast.Starting at the 57 minute mark.Azi reveals that due to COVID delays,Melissa's pregnancy and then finding out season 6 would be the final season,the show had to scrap the storylines for the entire season and start from scratch.So basically the season 6 we got was not what they had originally planned.They had to change everything aftyer they found out the show was ending.But they still kept their commitment to Azie to let her write a episode.It's why she joined the writters room.She also had to start from scratch.

But they scratched the whole season.They had to re-do everything because season 6 they were not planning to be the last season from the sound of it.

Would love to know what the original season 6 plans/storylines were.

I thought I’d share this story from a contributor to the site The Mighty who recognized the symptoms of PTSD in Kara throughout the back half of the final season.
”Symptoms of PTSD include avoidance, lacking interest in activities you once enjoyed, being easily startled or frightened, always being on guard for danger, and trouble concentrating. Additionally, PTSD often includes having intrusive thoughts, such as reliving the traumatic event as if it were happening again, recurrent unwanted memories of the traumatic event and irritability or anger outbursts due to the traumatic event. Throughout the sixth season of Supergirl, all of these symptoms are present.”

The symptoms of PTSD aren’t always debilitating dramatic episodes resulting in an inability to function or function at a high level. It’s common for suffers to act like they’re fine, the old fake it until they make it. It not just the literal flashbacks we saw Kara have it was also some of the decisions she made and reactions she had that the contributor saw as symptoms of PTSD.
”As Kara returns to Earth, trauma appears to overwhelm her. She starts having what’s clinically referred to as “flashbacks” of being trapped with the phantoms. The show replays the look of pain on her face as the phantoms take over her thoughts, and viewers watch as Kara relives her trauma again and again. The phantoms created lingering panic about the possibility of her friends and family getting hurt.
Due to this, Kara pushes the rest of her life away, focusing solely on being Supergirl. This means that she quits the job that she loves, pushes away friends and colleagues, and continues to have flashbacks — even in the middle of saving the day. Eventually, she stops living her normal life altogether. She’s afraid of being Kara because it means putting Supergirl aside — which could lead to the people around her”


This show took care in portraying mental illness and showing even for superheroes it’s ok not to be ok. I believe that will be just one of many of its legacies and since Melissa and many others involved with the show are mental health advocates one I’m sure they’re proud of.

2021 in Review: The Stealthiest Castings and Very Coolest Cameos

By Team TVLine / December 8 2021,

https://tvline.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/12/tv-best-cameos-secret-castings.png

CALISTA FLOCKHART, SUPERGIRL

https://tvline.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/12/SupergirlCalistaFlockhart.jpg

We weren’t sure if Flockhart’s Cat Grant would show up for the series finale, since we had barely seen her following the media titan’s departure in Season 2. Much to our surprise, Cat came through for the finale and, in a full circle moment, introduced Kara to the world as Supergirl. A perfect send-off for both characters.

Some interesting stuff.For example,she says the news Supergirl was ending came in a little late.

I enjoy a good cocktail as much as the next woman although I don’t like Gin, I’m more of a Vodka/Whiskey/Scotch and occasionally Tequila woman. A good cocktail can enhance viewing of a TV show but if a show is so painful to watch it requires a drink or gives me a headache requiring aspirin then I wouldn’t watch that show for any reason. Life is too short to watch or discuss a TV show that doesn’t entertain me.

muckle I might miss your comments too. In my head you like Don Draper, from Mad Men, if he were transported to the present time.

TVLine Is Thankful For: Longer Lasso, Supergirl's Finale Return, SNL Newbies, Marvel-ous TV, Diverse CBS and More

By Team TVLine / November 24 2021

https://tvline.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/11/thanksgiving-tvline-2021.jpg

Thanksgiving dinner might be imminent, but the real feast this year has been the sheer amount of television offered to us in the last 11 months. (And we don’t need to loosen our belts after binging!)

In the spirit of giving thanks this holiday season, Team TVLine has compiled the below list of television happenings for which we’re grateful in 2021, from a long-awaited Insecure reconciliation to a Saturday Night Live bit we’re still rewatching months later.

TVLine staff members Matt Mitovich, Kimberly Roots, Andy Swift, Dave Nemetz, Vlada Gelman, Rebecca Iannucci, Ryan Schwartz, Nick Caruso, Keisha Hatchett and Mekeisha Madden Toby have each singled out two things from this TV year that satisfied us. Gruff male characters getting in touch with their emotions? Sign us up. A steady stream of Jean Smart content? Yes, please. Even more dramatic antics from Bravo’s Real Housewives? Keep ’em coming.

Our gratitude also extends to Disney+’s reliable rollout of Marvel content, a Supergirl return we were eagerly anticipating, an animated Netflix series that’s must-see TV for musical theater geeks and much more.

KEISHA HATCHETT IS THANKFUL FOR…

CAT GRANT’S SUPER RETURN

I only wanted to see one person return for Supergirl’s final episode, and The CW really delivered! I loved Calista Flockhart’s Cat Grant and was sad to see her leave in Season 2. When she showed up for the finale, it felt like all was right in the world. And having her reveal — spoiler alert! — Supergirl’s identity to the world? Icing on the cake.

126 episodes and every one passed my personal test that determines if a TV show is entertaining to me. Were some episodes better than others absolutely but all kept me entertained and isn’t that what a show is super to do. Less than a handful of shows that lasted more than a season have had every episode in the series pass the test.

I’ve probably talked about it before but the test is pretty simple and I’ve been using it since before smart phones or even the internet existed. Does the show hold my attention or do I find myself reaching for whatever book I’m reading, my phone, starting to clean, basically anything but focusing on the show. Bonus points if I find myself rewinding or rewatching, I hardly ever rewatch a TV show or movie or reread a book. Also bonus points if I watch a TV show the day it airs. Supergirl got lot of bonus points. A show doesn’t need to pass the test for me to continue watching but the more distracted I get while watching the further it slips down the DVR priority until it drops off and I don’t watch anymore. If a new show really fails in its first few episodes the series is dropped.

I don’t know or care if my test means I drink the Cool Aid but it works for me. While it’s interesting to know some BTS stuff about what the EPs did or didn’t do that doesn’t matter to me. Heck this might be the first show I even know who the EPs were let alone that they changed.

Thank you so much for sharing your testing of different shows. So it's safe to say that you have never ever taking your supergirl jammies off while testing the show.:)
I do believe that I'm going to miss your comments.;) Your test is much more involved then the way I've tested the show. Simply put I start off sober. Depending on how the show goes I either reach for the gin and vermouth or remain sober. If the show becomes to painful to watch I reach for the liquid morphine that I got my hands on. At that point I could watch paint dry.:o

Supergirl writer Jay Faerbe talks the final season of Supergirl.Gives a lot of insight into the making of a show from the writer's perspective and how decisions are made.Very fascinating interview.




Indeed, this is a pretty illuminating interview, although it does generously sidestep the 'queerbaiting' claim, which is perfectly understandable....because it's basically overblown. Supercorp shippers became co-opted by MAGAt trolls, resulting in a significant disruption and loss of the series overall social media presence (although Seasons 5 and 6 are also informed by COVID-19 production disruptions).

For some in universe context I watch Flash and Batwoman and both shows have a good number of episodes that pass the test. I have found myself rewinding on both shows but I don’t rewatch episodes or watch the same day they air.

Superman as a character doesn’t resonate with me which is probably why I never understand the whole superhero thing before this show. I did really enjoy Tyler’s appearances on Supergirl and the crossovers as well as Bitsi’s Lois so I wanted to give the S&L a chance. I watched the first three episodes and 15 minutes in I was on my phone or reading my book. I even put my book and phone out of reach, something I don’t normally do, so I had to get up to get them. I put the distraction away rewound to where I left off and tried again but unfortunately S&L just doesn’t work for me.

I don’t know or care if my test means I drink the Cool Aid but it works for me. While it’s interesting to know some BTS stuff about what the EPs did or didn’t do that doesn’t matter to me. Heck this might be the first show I even know who the EPs were let alone that they changed.
