Listener Email: M’gann’s Cut


Redlocks 27 wrote in to share some forensic file thoughts about the first half of Supergirl Season 6!


My forensic files thoughts:

During Episode 2: I screamed at my TV when Lena said “that’s fruit of the poisonous tree”. Since my job completely revolves around that legal aspect, I was so happy to hear the Supergirl Radio Legal Consultants explain further. I have been to jury trials and I cringed…like super hard…at how the writers depicted court functions.

During Episode 3: I’m once again being picky, but M’gann’s cut on her neck is quite deep for that little amount of bleeding. I’m not a medic, but I’m assuming that the white walking dementors *cough*…sorry, phantoms cut her neck and it miraculously did not hit an artery. So from there, I am assuming that it hit a vein. With the cut being in the neck where blood flows at a high rate while she was being physically active, I was thinking realistically there would be A LOT more blood. If they hit an artery, then it would produce arterial bleeding (blood literally squirting out creating a different blood spatter effect on walls and such). The only way I truly see neck injuries like the one on M’gann is where they are dead on the autopsy table (no blood flow whatsoever) or where the wounds have been sealed very quickly after injury and the cut was not very damaging and the person had not gone into shock and was very lucky. Those things vary, but they are my observations.During Episode 4: I started laughing at the fact that they had to use a crystal to get Kara’s DNA. I collect people’s DNA on a daily basis!!! Look at Kara’s toothbrush, comb, glass she last drank from, her keyboard from her office or laptop (I could keep going). I get it’s a smaller sample and is less likely to produce a full sample, but jeez. They do this in CSI shows all the time where they solve crimes in twenty minutes so the writers need to get on that bandwagon or, at least, write creatively.

    Ok, I think we’re all being a little too forensic about this! This isn’t a CSI show or a court room drama, it’s a sci-fi show about aliens and superbeings. How can we say there’s not enough bleeding from a cut when that cut is on a Martian body? Is a Martian artery in the same place as a humans? My point is we can’t apply real world medical science to a sc-fi fantasy situation. Same with the DNA sample- we all know people shed DNA everywhere, but would a Kryptonian? Some comic book stories many years ago gave me the impression they do not, and even Lex had trouble finding Kryptonian DNA in (the sub-standard movie!) Superman- The Quest For Peace. The writers on Supergirl may have used a time travel plot contrivance to obtain Kara’s DNA, but at least this gave us the seasons best two episodes so far- the Midvale two-parter. Now, if we’re going to to talk “real world”, how about getting the Supergirl Radio legal team to make a case against Queller & Rovner for slowly murdering our beloved show over the last three years? On a rewatch you can almost plant a flag at the point where these two clowns took over and it hasn’t been the same show since. Anyway, I just want to say a BIG thank you to Supergirl Radio for creating this community and keeping us all together.. even through the hard times!
