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.

Such lofty, heady standards! Me, I just went for the Tylenol if it got too muzzy for my mind to absorb. ;)

Sorry, I've just gotta add that the whole quote is a mic drop-and-a-half right there! :D :D :D :D

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

Melissa was on Sophia Bush's podcast.They covered a lot of stuff.

https://open.spotify.com/episode/4M8p8N7Rw3g7LNX7LZBEGG?si=JIEzBwbhT1yyNZj-e34mSw&nd=1

Today’s guest is an actor, a producer, mental health activist, and even a Superhero--when she’s on set. You know her best as Kara Danvers aka SuperGirl on the CW, it’s Melissa Benoist. Today she joins Sophia to talk about art as a business and art as an expression, how you often end up feeling alive in the hardest times in your life, her experience as SuperGirl and the personal challenges she was facing during that time, her new book she wrote with her sister, and so much more!

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.

More and more it seems coming on the social media highway are BTS pics of Supergirl. From Andrew Suttar on Instagram comes this set of photos, starting with one that might shock Melissa Benoist fans...knowing how she loves dogs so much.

Yes indeed. But, from the pieces of info I've gathered over the years, the outlines stopped because during Season 3, when AK was dismissed, JQ and RR were required to take the helm of the project after Greg Berlanti and they had a huge conflab (this is why production was delayed a few weeks during S3) as to how to proceed from this point on.

From my understanding, AK had left enough residual material behind to carry through S3 and had an outline for S4 ready, which they used. S5 and S6 not having outlines makes sense since the showrunners either chose not to, couldn't/wouldn't make them, or they knew that the show was on the rocks at that point and they were out of their depth regarding making superhero shows.

Their primary task was to carry the show through to S5 and to deliver it up for COIE (...render unto Guggenheim) and merge the universes into one. They did that. Given the mess that S5 was, S6 was only really requested after Melissa and the brass agreed to close shop after the season by providing the actors with a swan song send off.

How Supergirl's final season failed the Maid of Might

https://www.digitalspy.com/tv/ustv/a38262722/supergirl-season-6-kara-danvers/

First a big shout out to you comic fan, for all the good stuff that you have posted these past several years.:)
This article pretty much confirms what most of us knew after season 3. I will never understand why in the final season they didn't change course and focus totally on Melissa. I know that everyone had to sign off to what was going to air but when you have to many hands in the soup it will always come out sour. They would rather tie up the loose ends and kick supergirl to the curb. Season six was a disgrace but the cool aide crowd seemed to be okay with it. Now with this mess behind her, my hope is that her career skyrockets.

Performer of the Week: Kelly Reilly

By Team TVLine / November 13 2021, 7

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

HONORABLE MENTION | If Melissa Benoist is going to do one thing as Supergirl, it’s make you feel like you can change the world, and that was never more apparent than in the Arrowverse show’s heartfelt series finale. Benoist didn’t just deliver for the last episode; she brought the whole Amazon warehouse. Supergirl’s packed sendoff asked a lot of Benoist, who was tasked with action-heavy battle scenes, delivering a game-changing speech that would inspire humans to save themselves, singing with a live band, conveying the Kryptonian’s vulnerability in revealing her secret identity to the world and leaving us with a relaxed Kara after going through what was probably an emotional gauntlet. Sometimes, you can tell when an actor is ready to leave, and their performance feels phoned in. However, Benoist was the antithesis of that and gave fans the proper closure they deserved.
