I wasn’t too impressed when I saw the trailer for the new Supergirl series. I found the main character too perky. The series officially starts on November but I saw the leaked pilot and I am not on board with it. With all her abilities and privileges why is her character stuck as an assistant for media mogul? Having a terror boss is giving me déjà vu of The Devil Wears Prada and Ugly Betty, including the multiple assistant outfits. Why couldn’t Kara be a scientist or a doctor? She certainly has the brains for it. Or she could be more interesting as a kindergarten teacher! I didn’t understand her motives of becoming an assistant, she wasn’t doing anything on the side and didn’t seem to lack money either.
I also found grating the saccharine message of being yourself. Also, I didn’t understand why she revealed her identity to that tech guy, it didn’t look like that they were close friends to begin with. There are only two things I liked: Supergirl got her butt kicked and her lipstick looks amazing on her. Overall this series is not worth my time.
