Supergirl rant incoming
I try to keep my blog cheerful but sometimes this show does something so dumb I have to let out some steam. It hurts me to see Kara’s character
diminished to fit this hellplot and nightmare karahell relationship. Kara has
been trying so hard to tell everyone why they aren’t a good fit and why
the things Mon-Ehh has done have hurt her and keep hurting her and the
all the people around her are just pushing them together or not taking
the things she says seriously and the show makes fun of some of the stuff which just leave me thinking did the show really just do that.
Karahell getting together (and now back
together) has been one of the most baffling things about a show that has
aliens, all kinds of superpowers and multiverse in it. What on Earth
are the writers thinking when writing this stuff or whoever that decides
this stuff… like stop and think for a moment what you’re doing to
your main character. I also hate that they’ve made Alex a vessel for
pushing them together, I hate it so much… Everybody acts ouf character.
The “love” story is so bad that I almost want to say it’s one of the
worst and most immature “love” stories I’ve ever seen.
At this point I just want to see a single Kara if it means we’ll get back some of the magic the first season had or at least concentrate on the plot for a minute and not rush through everything.
I don’t understand why they would make Mon-ehh so unlikable and there really hasn’t been any real character growth there, eg. it would have been interesting to see how he deals with the loss of his entire culture, planet and people but they haven’t shown it affecting him in any real way. It’s painful to watch the Mon-Ehh centered episodes and the series doesn’t need any other hero’s journey than the one Kara is on… or if they insist to have another, they could have done it with someone else, preferably a woman because this is a show about a woman superhero and the arrowverse already has multiple male centered shows.
