I don't know why I expected this to be terrible. I just did. But CBS has just released its first look at upcoming super hero series Supergirl and I'm actually... really into it.
Maybe its because I've watched too much Gossip Girl, maybe because I was a closet Dawson's Creek fan back in the day, I dunno. But seriously, this looks like a really well-advised take on the superhero thing. Supergirl should be like this, it should be a mix of Gossip Girl and... I don't know, Smallville maybe?
I can't put my finger on it, but this looks like actual well-made fluff TV that I could get on board with.
I don't know if I'm in the minority here, but this doesn't look terrible and I'll probably watch it. It's the complete antithesis of "I'M A BROODING SUPERHUMAN BEING WITH FEEEEEEEELINGS..."
