Supergirl

So my brother is the super hero fan of the family and quite honestly I’ve never really cared for the movies or anything. However, I did grow up around Power Rangers and Ninja Turtles. I was the Pink Ranger for Halloween as a kid. So I guess you can say I didn’t hate it! ūüėČ There was also my recent obsession with The Amazing Spider-Man- the one with Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone.¬†I freaking love those movies. Add some Romance and I’m all in. Spoiler Alert… BUT WHY DOES SHE DIE????

Any who, my brother had been telling me to watch the CW’s¬†Supergirl for the longest time. He was all like¬†“I think you’ll like it.” and I¬†just kept saying no. Until one day I was looking for a new Netflix binger and low and behold¬†I got hooked into the world of superheroes.

I’m a feminist, and I believe in women’s equality and female empowerment. Girl power all the way, my friend. And this show embodies just that.

CBS premiered Season 1 in October of 2015. The summary reads as follows-

At 12 years old, Kara Zor-El escapes doom on planet Krypton to find protection on Earth with the Danvers family, where she grows up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex, and learns to hide the extraordinary powers she shares with her cousin, Superman. Now an adult living in National City and working for media mogul Cat Grant, Kara finds her days of keeping her abilities a secret are over when super-secret agency head Hank Henshaw enlists her to help protect the city’s citizens from threats. Finally coming into her own, Kara must juggle her new responsibilities with her very human relationships. (Via Wikipedia)

I watched the full first season on Netflix and am dying to watch the second season. Supergirl is currently airing¬†it’s second season on The CW.¬† It is said to be released on Netflix- Tuesday,¬†May 30th! So I don’t have to wait long! I’ve peeked ahead on YouTube and she has the cutest love interest! I cannot wait to watch the full story unfold!!!!¬†Supergirl¬†was also picked up for a third season!

Oh did I mention that Supergirl is totally the sweetest girl in the world, and the strongest, most badass all in one! Not only can she fly, but¬†she has superhuman strength, speed, and stamina;¬†super breath; x-ray vision; telescopic and microscopic vision; freeze breath; heat vision; and super hearing.¬†She¬†is stronger than an ox, and can repel bullets. She’s the girl of steal. It’s funny how they always pull Superman in on iChat. I hope we actually get to see him, every time they say he’s there, you never fully see him. She’s determined to do things alone, and be her own super heroine, which I respect. But I mean how cool would it be to see a cousin duo tag team. Red, Blue, and Yellow baby. #S

Can we also just give a shot out to the crazy good cast they have. I mean you’ve got quite a few Glee cast members like Melissa Benoist as Kara/Supergirl¬†, Jenna Dewan Tatum from Step Up!, Calista Flockhart best known as¬†“Ally McBeal”,¬†and my girl Chyler Leigh “Lexie Grey” from Grey’s Anatomy. So damn good!

Oh and Winn (played by Jeremey Jordan) is my favorite, what a freaking cutie!

Although I get so annoyed by the fact that Kara can put a pair of glasses on and wear her hair up and suddenly no one can tell she looks just like Supergirl!

I guess they have to suspend reality, so I can let that slide. ūüėČ The rest of the show is¬†kickass.¬†I really love how they developed Kara’s character. She¬†has got this dorky, goofy, out of place, off kilter vibe. She’s an alien on planet Earth,¬†just trying to learn to be human. I think¬†it’s¬†safe to say that she does a good job at trying to blend in, but sometimes her awkwardness gets in the way, and quite honestly I may not an alien, but I think we can all be awkward as hell sometimes! She handles it effortlessly, with her sweetness and then she can instantly¬†flip her switch and be Supergirl saving the world¬†from bad guys and girls. Yes that’s right she battles some bad ass she villains and even though I am all for good winning over evil, it’s super cool to see female villains and superheroes fight it out, rather than just the typical male heroes. Silver Banshee (played by Italia Ricci) was dope!

Supergirl doesn’t kill, but she’s just as effective. And of course she has many admirers along the way which just puts the cherry on top for me. #Romance

They even did a little cross over episode with The CW’s The Flash, and I was a little in love with The Flash/Barry Allen – (played by Grant Gustin-also starred on Glee.) I hear they recently did another one this season, so¬†OMG¬†um, now I’m probably going to have to get into The Flash too.

So there you have it, Supergirl has it all; Confidence, Encourages Female Centric Storylines, Strength, Humor, Action¬†and Romance. I’m all in!

Supergirl airs Monday nights @ 8PM on The CW

Catch up on Season 1 on Netflix!

This is my RIOT. [Part 3]

Some Of My Favorite Glenn Moments

“I delivered pizzas, why?.”- #BOSS

Well walker mishap. -AGAIN… #BOSS

“Hey , hey you in the tank…dumbass, you cozy in there?” -Meet Glenn (this scene makes me want to cry now)

Fast car, fast race.

Chair kill.- #BADASS

Glenn takes his Governor frustrations out on a walker & bitches out Rick for what happened to Maggie.

-This storyline was so interesting to me, it showed a side to Glenn that we’ve scene, but this was an elevated level. Glenn is protective of Maggie, and when he saw her barely clothed and with the Governor, knowing if he tried to save her, they’d both end up dead, he and Maggie end up going through some seriously deep stuff. You really see Glenn’s love and protection for Maggie throughout that storyline.

Aiden knock out.

Nicholas knock out.

“My blood my family is standing right here.” (@0:45)

 

Best Glenn & Maggie Moments

***These fan videos are gorgeous and have a lot of great Gleggie/Glaggie moments.

First time- this is such a brilliant scene, and it’s so sweet and funny.

Clock watch (@4:00) “I love you.” (@6:46)-I love how Glenn realizes the importance of Hershel passing down the watch to him, you can see the tears in his eyes. -I love how he tells her he loves her and how he says “it’s been true for a long time.” And then how he tells Maggie to stop the car and let him drive because he can see how in shock she is. #Gentleman.

Barn full of walkers gun down– “Maggie?” I adore this moment, because it’s as if he’s asking permission, he is hesitant, and doesn’t want to hurt her.

Photograph-This will always be one of my most favorite moments. I love how simple, and normal it is. And I LOVE how she kisses his hand before he leaves.

Green balloons– I love this scene so much because you can just see how deep their connection is, she was waiting for a sign and he knew to send one.

Shower Scene I love this scene because it’s a sweet moment between a loving couple and then you see it kind of take on a more serious tone when Glenn notices Maggie’s bruises feeling the urgency to comfort her. It’s beautiful.¬†

Baby Glaggie/Gleggie– I can’t. I just can’t.

***There are so many¬†amazing Glenn/Glenn & Maggie¬†moments over the course of the last¬†6 seasons. Glenn was so full of heart and his relationship with Maggie was one of my favorite parts of the show. I’m a sucker for a good romance story and the fact that the two of them managed to find and fall in love even in this kind of world, was just so beautiful. When Maggie was introduced, I realized that they would be my romantic fix for the show. It saddens me that they will never get to start their family and live a happy life. I know there are many scenes I probably didn’t feature, so feel free to share your favorites below, I’d love to hear them! Just know every minute of their story is amazing and we appreciate the heart and realism Lauren Cohan (Maggie) and Steven Yeun (Glenn) put into their characters. Gleggie/Glaggie Forever.

RIP Sweet Glenn ‚̧

13 Times Haley James (Scott) Handled Things Like A BOSS.

So I randomly got into watching some One Tree Hill episodes a few nights ago, and I was reminded of just how much I love Haley James Scott. She was always my favorite character. I always felt like aside from the fact that she ended up married by 16 and pregnant by 18, I thought she was¬†the most “real” or most¬†accurate version of a typical teenager/girl next door. I saw things in her, that I saw in myself. And as a writer and a tv lover, I realize that’s gold when you are trying to hook an audience. When people relate to your characters, you truly have something special.

Haley James Scott, known for being the goody two shoes of the group. The kind, and sweet and innocent girl that always had a thing for people who needed fixing. She was the girl who spent her free time working shifts at the café to earn spending money, tutoring kids, and studying and being brilliant. But by season 2 she was a full fledged singer, and we saw new side of Haley. #Rockstarr

However, let’s be honest underneath that sweet nice girl act, was¬†a sassy girl just dying to get out. Mess with her, or¬†someone she cares about and¬†you will feel her wrath. And in¬†those moments above all else, I LOVED HER!

Because¬†Haley James Scott was more than just Nathan Scott’s wife, or Tree Hill High’s teacher, more than Haley James singer and tour travel goer.¬†Haley James Scott was¬†a young¬†woman¬†who spoke her mind when she felt something¬†was wrong.¬†A girl who never faulted on her beliefs, and always without a doubt followed her heart. Because Haley James Scott was a BADASS! And here’s why…

13 Times Haley James (Scott) Handled Things Like A BOSS.

  1. When Haley finds Nanny Carrie and Nathan all nake-fied and stepping out of the shower.

2. When Haley bitches out Peyton for kissing Lucas when he’s with Lindsay.

3. When Haley bitches out Lucas for proposing to Lindsay when she saw him kiss Peyton. @1:24

#ILovedLindsay #PeytonAlwaysIrritatedMe #WhyDidntHaleyAndLucasEverGetItOn

4. When Haley¬†throws a drink in Rachel’s face and slaps¬†her¬†at she and Nathan’s house party.

^ Skills: “Yo ma I think it’s time for you to leave.” haha

5. When Haley shoves the mother of the kid who’s been bullying Jamie.

6. When Haley pukes in Dan’s lap after spending the day playing hooky and drinking with Nathan, . #DrunkHaley #SoUnHaleyLike But hysterical.

7. When Haley and Nathan fight over her not being on birth control pills.

-He was such an a$$ here, like as if¬†it’s only her responsibility. And he never SHUT UP about basketball¬†and HIS¬†dream, but whatever that is an angry rant for a different time.

8. When Haley and Nathan fight about Nanny Carrie and Haley asks for a divorce.

9. When Haley slaps a bitch…named Renee.

10. When Haley and Nathan talk about Nathan’s Sex Tape he made with Brooke. #pregnancyhormones LMAO.

11. When Haley initiates “slutty wedding sex,” with Nathan.

12. When Haley and Nathan fight during a Tree Hill storm and the power goes out.

13. When Haley tells off Principal Rimkus.

So yes, I know that there are many more sassy Haley James Scott¬†moments out there, but we’d be here forever. These are¬†the ones that came to mind first. Tell me which ones I missed!

And also can we just take a moment and fangirl a.k.a freak the heck out over these One Tree Hill conventions that have been going on all over lately. The cast’s instagram¬†game is¬†EVERYTHING. They need to leave Paris for a while and come visit NEW YORK. Joy I’m still waiting to do brunch, oh and¬†we can invite Sophia Bush along too! ūüėČ #FangirlLife
