CBS Releases The Full SUPERGIRL Preview

Written by

This preview for CBS's upcoming Supergirl series is actually longer than the 1984 Supergirl movie. Oh my God, did this thing go on and on. If the first episode of this show is 42 minutes long, well we've just seen a third of them. This preview is so long that I'm pretty certain when I finished watching it, CBS already cancelled the show.

We all know the Supergirl story so no need to go into it at great length but here's the rundown: Superman's cousin, Kara Zor-El (played by Melissa Benoist) is sent to Earth from Krypton, then raised by a foster family. Chyler Leigh from Not Another Teen Movie is her step-sister who knows her secret. Kara becomes a nerd girl whose boss is Ally McBeal (doing her best homage to Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada) and then Kara uses her powers to save a plane which Chyler is on and then the world discovers Supergirl. Also, Supergirl wears a skirt so short it would in fact, make even Ally McBeal's mouth drop. Supergirl wears nice boots, though. I think the Supergirl crew probably swiped those boots from the wardrobe dept. of The Good Wife. Makes sense now that Archie Panjabi won't be needing them anymore. Oh, and thanks for that, Julianna Margulies. Thanks a lot.
