Critic reviews for Supergirl Lives
Earlier in the season, I think an episode like this would have landed better for me. But after a big crossover event and a holiday hiatus, I wasn't expecting another story on foreign planet to be the drama of the week.
Supergirl kicked off the second half of Season 2 on solid footing, as the show downplayed super-heroics in favor of a more sci-fi-oriented adventure.
"Supergirl Lives" was another entertaining, action-packed, and thematically-focused episode of Supergirl Season 2. This show continues to be one of the best character dramas on TV.
Mon-El was also pretty great here. Initially, his fish-out-of-water alien shtick was played a bit too slapstick, but now he's really settling into a comfortable chemistry with Kara.
How did any of us even survive without Alex and Maggie for so many weeks?
While adhering to the show's visual style, Smith managed to put his own stamp on the hour by making it as playful as possible. Watching the episode, there's a sense that everyone was having a ton of fun working on it.
