    Awesome IF it happens! Even awesomer IF it isn't just Smallville with a female, instead of male, lead.

    It's a shame that it sounds like CW aren't interested. It would be great to see a shared universe between (Green) Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl.

    It's a shame it will not be an animated series, but maybe just maybe they will get this one right unlike most of DC's other live action series.

    Arrow is an amazing series. I hope this would be half as good. Flash's pilot was also great. Gotham was okay. So, I think DC is doing pretty good so far. I love the idea of a Supergirl series, depending on how it's executed.

    Arrow is fantastic. S1 is a bit rough, but you can watch the recap episode to get caught up. Season 2 is gold.

    I agree. Arrow is great. Season 1 was a bit hit or miss, but now that they have an established fan-base, they seem happy to indulge in all sorts of comic book goodness!

    And the buzz for The Flash, which shares the same DC Universe as (Green) Arrow, has been really positive.

    The writers will have a lot of leeway to do what they want with the character...but she hardly ever fares well without Superman around. I doubt this will make it beyond a pilot....

    CBS gives the show a series commitment:

    Was hoping for another spin off of arrow.. figured we'd eventually see a justice league.

    But this actually looks good.

    This looks fantastic - and best of all, it's in color! Seriously, Benoist is adorable, and I'm looking forward to this, though I question the wisdom of Supergirl and Gotham in the same time slot...yes, different networks, and in the era of the DVR probably not a huge deal, but I'd have thought the WB/DC wouldn't want to compete with itself.

    Also, I wonder if this ties into any other medium, or will be its own continuity.

    Wow, I think this looks great! When it first came out, they didn't rule out it crossing over with Arrow and that world. Although having a Superman in the universe would be a bit odd, having never been mentioned on the other shows.

    Berlanti has said recently that they share the same universe, though no confirmation if there will be actual CW/CBS crossovers.

    Looks OK. Little too "teen" drama-y for my initial tastes, but I assume most of this footage is from the pilot, so I'll reserve final judgment until it begins airing in November.

    This looks great! It looks better than Man of Steel.

    Speaking of which, if they are presumably trying to tie into the film continuity, how are they going to reconcile black Jimmy Olsen with white Jenny Olsen?

    Are they trying to tie it into the films? It sounds like if anything, it'll be tied into the CW shows - which are clearly not in film continuity.

    Yeah, I think they've made it clear TV and film universes are totally separate.

    And thank goodness for that.

    I don't want Snyder, Nolan, Goyer and the rest anywhere near the TV shows.

    They may not have mentioned Superman, but I believe they mentioned Batman on the Flash early on. And thank Primus these shows have nothing to do with the films, because the films are horrid interpretations of the DC Universe.

    I like the lead actress but parts of the trailer feel like an SNL skit spoofing cliche super heroes and shallow Sex in the City-style rom-coms. It's either brilliant to blend the cliches of those two genres or it'll be a disaster. There are shades of Wonder Woman crying over a guy while eating ice cream from the David E. Kelley pilot, which I hope won't be the case, but I admit casting Kelley's own Ally McBeal as a J Jonah Jameson meets Miranda Frost evil boss is hilarious and I love her defense of the word "girl."

    Also, that Jimmy Olsen is a quarterback! And the other guy has stolen all his geeky awkwardness! They should dye that non-Olsen guy's hair red just to complete the whiskey tango foxtrot of it all.

    I just tried to watch it. I made it to 4:20.

    Not really interested in some 16 year old female coming of age story.

    I also want bad things to happen to Kara's boss. Which isn't nice to say. Female or otherwise.

    If anything I want my 4:20 back.
