That episode didn't make my top 5 but I really liked it as well. For me the attraction was the very talented young actresses who resembled to a tee a young Kara and young Alex. What I don't get is why season 2 episodes aren't getting much voter support.

Same here - enjoyed it immensely, but just doesn't fall into the "favorite" sort of category for me. As for Season 2, perhaps the good parts are just too spaced out? Alex is tied for #7 and could move up.

If anyone's curious, here's the current vote distribution by season:
Season 1: 37%
Season 2: 17%
Season 3: 24%*
Season 4: 22%
*: Almost half from Midvale


There is an interesting thought here. Most of us are happy to imagine the series going on forever, though at some point the show will need to be retitled Supergrandma, the leading actress now collecting her social security while on the job. Realistically speaking, at some point all good things come to an end, and at that point the show will need to be rebooted. Given the popularity of Midvale, rebooting with a much younger lead actress might be an option.


And how do you keep the much younger actress? Dr Who solved this. The heroine inhaled Kryptonite dust before her planet blew up, it incorporated into her bones, and her Fortress of Solitude keeps regenerating her in the hopes of eliminating all of it. this is a slow process.

What a showing from FTGWHE, regularly 10 votes behind Midvale for the 1st half of the week and now tied, nice to have a close race on the last day of the poll.


Yes, seems a little weird. Not a big thing, it's just for fun and I love both episodes. But the statistical anomaly does seems fishy.
I'm not sure how it would be fishy. When I voted earlier in the week there were only around 500 votes and now I see there are over 700. It would have only taken ten people voting for FTGWHE and not voting for Midvale for it to catch up. But, you're very right that this is for fun and I, too, enjoyed both episodes.

What I appreciate with those in the first five spots and even beyond is how those episodes highlight two things: 1). Kara's story is at the forefront 2). all of those episodes showcase the sister relationship.

Of course, there are numerous factors at play for why fans are voting for those specific ones, but I like to think that when the EPs combine those two factors as the focus of the episode, the likelihood of having a strong, memorable episode is higher. Melissa and Chyler are good separately, but putting them together just transcends the material.

Are there enough votes left for Falling to make it to 100?.

Not insignificantly Season 1 episodes (274) now have over 100 more votes than Season 3 (172) which is in a close race with Season 4 (165) for 2nd place in the battle of the seasons.

It's been good fun to follow the results this week and read folks different thoughts on their Top 5 so thank-you again Admin for doing this poll :-) .

Umm vote button doesn't work for me.. I find it odd....

I picked top 5 for best supergirl episodes

Pilot
Girl of Steel
Triggers
Reign
The quest for peace

I'm in awe of Chy and Melissa's acting from day 1 to now, their acting chops has grow so much , these two talented actresses deserved the Oscars and Emmys! yes lots of it ! Few of the episodes that included the scenes between Kara and Alex during emotional scenes blew me away out of its park.

As for the episodes I mentioned at top of this post I still never forget that insane fight ends in a epic cliffhanger from Reign episode, I'm not surprised that Legion of superheroes episode is not listed on the best of Supergirl episodes...

Suggestion
Oh, and the Supergirl timer needs to be rolled back (increased) by an hour for the new time slot.

I still have something up my sleeve just wait!

Suggestion for future polls - include the s1e1 or 1x1 episode numbers - a lot of communities use those to designate the episodes instead of the names. There were a couple I knew by that and had to count out to find.
+3 #31 We'll always have Season 1 ... on DVDKatco 2019-06-06 16:50
This was fun! Didn't read the directions either; another teacher bites the dust. Only miss Manhunter as it didn't make the cut. Too late to lobby for it now, but it had that great scene sequence: J'onn and Alex on the way to Cadmus, the motorcycle chase, and Kara and Alex saying goodbye at the end of the road.

Oh well, supported Season 1 and did my part to put Falling in the lead. Awesome performance by Melissa. So many great moments and images: Supergirl with her feet up at the DEO, Kara at Catco, Red K Supergirl flicking peanuts in the bar, the fight with J'onn, and apologies to Alex and Cat. It even had my favorite line (one of them), "Classic Alex, always just in time to ruin all the fun." Remains the gold (or red) standard.

Loved Midvale too. For "the kids." Izabela and Olivia are perfect. It may have my second favorite line, "I hate you." Always up for "s'more" Midvale.

It's definitely been a fun and interesting watch of results this week. While the Top 5 hasn't changed since near the end of the 1st day the episode within the Top 5 that's been most interesting is FTGWHE which was tied or within 1 vote of Red Dawn for 3rd place for several days but is now 12 votes ahead of it and has pulled within 6 votes of Midvale for 2nd.

FTGWHE was certainly a great episode and deserves it's place in the Top 3, the best moments for me where how funny Melissa was portraying J'onn playing Kara and when Alex referred to James and Winn as Kara's family, just a simple line but one that for me symbolised one of the important themes of Season 1.

It's also nice to have had nearly 700 votes so far (200 more than the 1st poll), this site must have gained a few new members for just this poll alone so that's really neat to see.

I still have something up my sleeve just wait!
