Supergirl: S2E2 The Last Children of Krypton

We continue with Kara & Clark continuing to work together in National City. Clark & Hank are still now pleased to be around each other and the cause of this is soon reviled.

At CatCo Kara is introduced to her new boss as a reporter. Ms Grant decided to go to different things and appoints James as her successor.

Meanwhile Project Cadmus has a new prototype cyborg which is enhanced by kryptonite which was stolen from the DEO. It’s up to Clark & Kara to stop him.

As the second season continues to be established a few of the characters are moved around into new positions for the coming season.

Tyler Hoechlin one again guest stars as The Man of Steel and continues to perform quite well in the role. I did find that the interactions between Snapper Carr & Kara did not feel quite right to me perhaps this will settle down a bit as I become accustom to the new character.

Generally however this episode continues to build on the strengths of the season opener.

Frequency S1E2: Signal and Noise

As Frank and Raimy continue to talk through time via his ham radio. Raimy convinces her dad to warn her mum Julie to be careful as she is going to be a victim of the nightingale killer. However Frank and Julie have not spoken in two years. Meanwhile Raimy and Frank start to investigate Thomas Goff as a possible person of interest they suspect might be the nightingale.

This series continues on it’s strong start with it’s pilot episode as we learn more about the lead characters and the changes their interactions through time are creating.

While I suspect the series was designed to keep the viewer engaged Frequency is developing into a show where you have to watch every episode because they all tie in. If you miss too much of it you may become lost and not know what’s going on.

It will be interesting to see how the show continues to grow and in which direction the creators take it.

Supergirl S2E1: The Adventures of Supergirl

Season 2 of Supergirl kickes off right where season 1 finished with Martian Manhunter and Supergirl investigating an object that crashed to earth. As Kara continues to work out what job she wants to do her date with James Olsen is interrupted by an emergency with the maiden flight of The Venture. With the help of Superman (Tyler Hoechlin) they save the ship and all hands.

Supergirl brings her cousin to the DEO where clearly something between Hank and the man of steel is not quite right. Regardless Superman assists in the investigation with the events on The Venture. Investigations lead them to Lena Luthor (sister of Lex) who claims she is trying to rebrand her family’s business. As things unfold and with the possibility of a third kryptonian on earth season 2 is off to an interesting start.

Season 2 of Supergirl is off to quite a strong start. We see the continued development of Supergirl/Kara and we see some interesting changes with some of the other characters as we come into the new season.

The inclusion of Superman/Clark Kent played by Tyler Hoechlin was done quite well I did not feel he overshadowed the show and complimented it rather nicely. Tyler being cast in the role was a nice move he fitted the bill quite well. Plus this version of Superman saved more people in 5 minutes in this episode than the movie version from Man of Steel saved in an entire movie.

Sometimes it is said that the start of a second season of a tv show is more critical than the pilot episode because sometimes it is the second season that can make or break a show. So far Supergirl season 2 is off to a reasonable start which hopefully it can carry throughout the season.

Frequency: Pilot Episode

Have you ever thought what you might do if you were presented with the chance to communicate with a deceased family member from the past what would you do?

That is the basic premise of Frequency. Based on the 2000 Gregory Hoblit film by the same name.

Frequency tells the story of Raimy Sullivan ( Peyton List) a NYPD detective who after a lightening storm finds she can communicate with her deceased father Francis “Frank” Sullivan (Riley Smith) a NYPD detective who was killed in 1996 while working undercover via his old ham radio. Raimy finds she is talking to her father in the time directly preceding her father’s death. Raimy gives her father advise in the hope of preventing her death which triggers the “butterfly effect” in the timeline. Frank & Raimy then have have to team up across time to work together on a decades old murder case.

I have not seen the original movie this series is based off however I have been informed that it is worth watching.

The series however starts very strongly. I came across it by way of a short 7 min clip on YouTube which immediately grabbed my attention (and in some parts gave me chills). The pilot episode shows a great deal of promise. The acting was very powerful with a good strong cast showing what they can put onto the screen from the very first scene.

Frequency is developed by Supernatural & Being Human’s Jeremy Carver. It is on The CW and is also on Netflix. It looks like running for at least 3 seasons from the start. This is a series which is well worth picking up now and going along for the ride.
