A listener named Rikard wrote in to let us know what brought him back The CW’s Supergirl.
Back in late 2017, I decided to stop watching Supergirl because I didn’t like the first few episodes of Season 3 at all. Seeing Kara be mopey over Mon-El (a character I didn’t like whatsoever) just didn’t work for me. That, in combination with the fact the I knew he would return, just made me quit the show.
But now, after having some free time, I decided to pick the show up again (admittedly, knowing that Mon-El would leave for good at the end of Season 3 helped). I have to say that I am glad I did because I ended up really liking the season. Reign was my favorite Supergirl Big Bad BY FAR, I really liked the Sam character, and even though he never completely won me over, Mon-El was nowhere near as bad in Season 3.
My main frustration in Season 3 was actually Kara herself. The way she treated Lena just pisses me off. It makes absolutely no sense for her not to tell Lena her about her secret identity and I will be madder about it when Lena turns evil after learning that her supposed best friend has been lying to her all this time. I have never wanted Lena to turn evil because I think it is the boring and obvious thing to do.
Lastly, I have been listening to some of your podcast episodes for Season 3 and you are still great (at the start of the season, you were actually much better than the TV episodes, themselves).
