|Melissa Benoist as Supergirl|
So there’s going to be a new Supergirl show on CBS. I am withholding any opinion, but I have to say the costume is a pleasant surprise—it is actually recognizable as Supergirl. I don’t much care for it being another CBS crime procedural—I find them boring as all get out--or the politically correct casting. It’s rare that anything on Network TV is worth watching—but the costume is great!
Here's how CBS describes the show:
Supergirl stars Melissa Benoist as Kara Danvers née Zor-El, who since arriving on Earth years ago in the wake of planet Krypton’s destruction has been hiding the powers she shares with her famous cousin (Kal-El aka Superman). At age 24, Kara decides to embrace her super abilities and become the hero she was destined to be.
Also recently added to the cast are former Supergirl Helen Slater and former Superman Dean Cain, two actors I enjoy. I’ll definitely catch the pilot.
