The Supergirl and Flash crossover had some pretty great moments and I hope it happens again.

When the Flash and Supergirl got together, it actually was better than watching cats on the internet (which is probably why the internet was invented in the first place). I've always liked the lighter feel of the Flash and teaming up with Supergirl (which also has a much lighter feel to it) seemed like a perfect fit. And then (of course) there was this moment early on:
When asked to explain your powers of speed, who wouldn't hook everyone
up with ice cream. By the way, I'm jealous that Barry needs to eat 10,000
calories a day just to stay thin. That's a superpower with some kick to it.
I love the expression on Supergirl's face when she realizes that she has ice cream. But there's no way Barry paid for it so there is that issue...Barry you thief! Unless of course he just left a $20 and was like "keep the change." But there were so many great moments from the crossover. Seriously. And the best line of the night went to Cat Grant who kinda/sorta had a Deadpool-esque "break the fourth wall moment" when she commented that the cast of characters before her looked like the youth-obsessed, attractive, and racially diverse cast of a CW show. Oh my.
I suppose racially diverse and attractive does describe this cast. Cat Grant
nailed it. But then again, she is the CEO of a large company.
And then there was the fact that the Flash just loves that Kara is an alien. He wants her to take a picture of him standing in front of her spaceship, which is in this top secret government facility devoted to "very serious things." How can someone not love an episode that is poking fun at itself so intently?
I hope that CBS decides to renew Supergirl. It's had a pretty strong and convincing first season. As of this writing, there's been no word yet. The only thing I didn't like about the crossover was that it took place on a different Earth that Barry just happened to pop into. That makes it seem like crossovers might be harder. I would have liked them to be in the same universe. But hey, maybe if Supergirl gets canceled on CBS it could get picked up by the CW. That would be kinda fun, and they could fix the alternate universe stuff and start building a CW version of the Justice League. Now all they'd need is a t.v. version of Wonder Woman. I suppose they could go with "Wonder Girl" since all of these shows take place pre- "Crisis on the Infinite Earths." For what it's worth, I thought Wonder Girl was cooler than Wonder Woman in many ways (when she was with the Teen Titans).

  1. The crossover was the first Supergirl episode I watched. It was a lot of fun, and I was left wondering if it was always like that, or if it was just because Barry was there.

    Loved Supergirl's face when she received the ice cream, and Cat Grant was great.

    1. I think it's always been like that. You should watch from the very beginning.

  2. I loved the Supergirl/Flash crossover show so much. Barry and Kara are super adorable. With Kara's flying speed, I think she could find a way to Barry's universe. And I really how CBS renews Supergirl or they can give it to CW.

  3. It was great! Raised Supergirl up a notch as a show. Shame that won't be the same Flash in the movies though.

    1. I have no idea if Ezra Miller will hit all my Flash buttons. I think they should have gone with Grant Gustin too.

  4. The whole time travel thing is a bit of leap, but overall I liked it. It was a fun show.

    1. "A bit of a leap..." I see what you did there! It's true. Barry does do a lot of leaping.

  5. It was ok. I muted the lame villain parts. I probably won't stick with that show.

    1. Definitely not worth sticking with a show you don't like.

  6. I watched a few episodes of each of these programs but wasn't convinced to keep watching.

  7. Cross overs keep the show new and fresh. Side note: our niece Sarah is the doctor who examined Siobhan. She had 4 lines this time!

  8. Can't read. *diverting eyes* I watch this show with my dad on Saturdays, so I'm saving it until then.

  9. Sorry, Mike, but I don't watch either show. And I heard Supergirl was a hit maybe the renewal is a sure thing. But who knows with TV shows these days.

  10. I do enjoy Supergirl but a few of the episodes just did not peak my interest. But I still watch though and have few regrets. This episode was great and Flash is amazing wherever he goes. My fave CW show is Arrow but Flash is practically right next to it. Jimmy's jealous face was hilarious. I like that they are in separate universes. Gives an extra challenge in seeing each other again.
