So. Here's where I'm the jerk who didn't like the pilot of CBS's new Supergirl TV show that everyone is so excited about.
And I say this as someone who likes Supergirl. A lot. I've got Action 252 hanging up in my office in a frame (please don't rob me). I've read Silver, Bronze, 90's, 00's and even gave the trainwrecky New 52 Supergirl a shot. I'm not a stranger to the character. And, while I actually like the general tone of "Kimmy Schmidt as Supergirl", because I was really convinced I'd never see that take again (thank you, Sterling Gates, wherever you are, for giving me that Supergirl, oh, so briefly)... The show is a mess.
Yes, it is a show for children and for those who don't know Supergirl, and no one is under any legal or moral obligation to maintain fidelity to the comics. I think Marvel has proved that's all pretty unnecessary so long as you get the basic details down.
