Supergirl Least Favorite Episodes
Here are the results for the survey I sent out last week asking people about which were their least favorite episodes from the first two seasons of Supergirl. I got 380 responses which is over 200 more than I got last time (which is very, very exciting). Special thank you to everyone who reblogged the survey to spread it around. It’s thanks to you guys that I got as many responses as I did. The survey format was simple. Everyone answering had the choice of picking their top three least favorite episodes from each season.
Out of the 380 responses, only 207 answered the first question about season 1. I got 310 data points which means that most people did not use all of their three responses. The episode with the most down votes was episode 10, which is the Winn-centric one. It is one of the episodes where Kara has the least screen time. It is also one of the episodes where Alex has the least screen time. It’s the episode where Cat has the least screen time and James has his third least screen time. Essentially, for most characters other than Winn, there is a dip in screen time and for anyone who has faves that aren’t Winn, that episode might have been uninteresting. (If you have your own opinion as to why people disliked it, feel free to share).
The second most was Episode 15: Solitude. (Which I previously said was Truth, Justice, and the American Way. Thank you to the people who corrected me.) I’ve heard a few theories as to why people didn’t like it. Some don’t like Indigo as a villain and this was the episode where she was introduced and played a large part. @flafflewaffles said that the rift between Alex and Kara and Kara and J’onn after Astra’s death might have been the reason people didn’t like it. If anyone else has any theories, feel free to reply or send me a message.
Out of the 380 responses, 372 answered the question about Season 2 and I got 871 data points (more people used all three of their responses).
The results in season 2 are much less evenly distributed than in season 1. There are three episodes with over 200 votes (Episodes 13, 16, and 17), and the one with the next most (Episode 22) only has 42. Mr. and Mrs. Mxyzptlk got the most votes (238). Star-crossed is next (233) and then Distant Sun (204). Episode 13, 16, and 17 all have one thing in common, which is that the story centers around Mon-El.
Questions, comments, and concerns, just message me!! Once again, thanks for taking the survey :) You guys are all great.
