    I'm assuming this is the last filler episode and when the show returns in August the final season can actually begin.

    Looking at it again I realised you don't even see both their faces in the same shot at the same time.

    From the dialog I was expecting the whole tower was the spaceship rather than housing it.

    I do so hate that term with a white hot intensity...

    Where I specifically mentioned Kelly operating anything on J'onn's ship...

    ...when no one ever said she received instruction on how to operate any form of his alien tech. Its happens just because.

    Again: They said they spent three days preparing for the mission. It takes little imagination to read between the lines and assume that that preparation included ship operation lessons for Kelly.

    John upgraded his 3 century old Martian tech to Windows 8 years ago.

    As ever, no time travel story withstands scrutiny. Fortunately, I gave up trying to "make sense" of time travel "logic" many years ago and I just go with whatever the story provides as "rules" and "logic" and decide from there if I'm entertained. Much better for the blood pressure.

    This two-parter was entertaining enough (though not as good as the original Midvale episode). I'm just disappointed there was no Helen Slater. Ah well.

    The audience does not need to do what the writers are paid to do. Its more "just because" plotting.

    It's not the writers' job to spoonfeed the audience every tiny detail that anyone with a functioning brain can deduce for themselves. I prefer stories that respect their audience's intelligence, stories that expect you to pay attention and exercise your own reason. If you're complaining because you're being asked to think, then I have no sympathy for that.

    Agreed.

    I've been listening to a podcast covering Riverdale and have lately been feeling a bit frustrated by the hosts complaining about the show's writers not telling us, as an audience, things that the characters within the story either already knew or were told.

    Sometimes the audience doesn't need to know everything that the characters know, or be shown every little minute detail of the characters' lives, and complaining about a lack of such defined detail is both frustrating and confusing to me.

    So I dunno WTF is going on with Supergirl scheduling-wise at this point. At last report, it was going to return for its final 13 episodes on Tuesday, August 24 at 9:00. The CW announced today, however, that Riverdale will be starting its fall season in that time slot beginning in early September. So is Sg going to show two or three episodes, then be back in hiatus limbo again? :barf2:

    Don't worry. I'm not sure the CW does either.

    I still think they just don't want Supergirl and Superman on the same week. Is there a planned gap for S&L, because I think if they air episodes straight through it would work out just about right for that August date for SG.

    S&L's season finale is August 17. Supergirl was to take over the slot the following week, but this Riverdale business seems like a complication.

    Ahh right, I skimmed that and thought it was coming back on the 24th.

    I sometimes think they should take a cue from the old "wheel" shows they used to do in the '70s or thereabouts, where three or four different series would take alternating turns in the same time slot, like the NBC Mystery Movie. So you could have Superman one week, Supergirl the next, etc.

    Thank you! I read several articles about The CW's fall schedule earlier in the day, and I know one of them said something about The Flash and Riverdale premiering in early September, but seems they had their wires crossed.

    How silly. I'd dearly love for them to be on the same night. Give me two hours of Super!
