I used to follow your postings on Ello before I canceled my Ello account. But I’m still subscribed to The Citadel Cafe podcast.

A couple of thoughts about Supergirl. I quite enjoy it, but there are a few little things that bug me. Supergirl has pierced ears. Yeah, I know, it’s the old “how does Superman shave” question. Maybe she had someone take a kryptonite needle and pierce her ears.

I hope you have seen the season finale by this time.During the fight between Supergirl and Alex I kept wondering why Supergirl didn’t use her heat vision to disable the kryptonite costume Alex was wearing. Or, why didn’t she pick up something and knock the sword out of her hand?

Remember when the Martian Manhunter shapeshifted into Max Lord to get into the room where Bizarro girl was? And when he first entered the DEO as Hank Henshaw? Who didn’t know that was the Manhunter? Was it really necessary to give us a shot of his red eyes? The writers often seem hit us over the head like that because we must be too stupid to have figured it out for ourselves.

These little criticisms aside, I have enjoyed Supergirl and look forward to season two (if there will be one).

Keep up the great podcast!
