Is anyone enjoying this as much as I am?

It's good in a cheesy way but good in a artsy way too.

SPOILER!!!

I'm very excited that Martian Manhunter is in this!!! If he is anything like in the comics this will be a very interesting as long as they don't screw it up!

    I've been enjoying it thus far, especially since MM was outed (I had my suspicions from the first time his eyes glowed, lol). I'll admit I didn't have high expectations going in, but I'm preferring this over some of the other "super hero" shows I watch.

    It'll be interesting to see who they eventually cast as Superman, since (to me) it seems inevitable that he'll show up at some point (though I'd trust they're saving that for something BIG on the series). I'm hoping they might tap Tom Welling (if he's willing), but they might just as easily leave Clark as Kara's IM buddy, lol.

    I also like the casting of Dean Cain (Superman) and Helen Slater (Supergirl) as Kara's adoptive parents.

    I'm really hoping that MM has a bigger part as himself coming out!

    I'll have to give it a second chance then. I watched the first episode and didn't like it.

    After last night's episode with his comment about eventually permanently becoming MM, I'm guessing they'll draw that angle out as long as they can. Saves the actor a lot of time in the makeup chair, lol.

  • Anybody catch last nights episode? Bizzaro is a girl and I'm guessing the rich guy is another form of lex Luther?
    Pieces are starting to form patterns now.

    Anyone else have some thoughts?

    "...Dimitri...He talks to me...'.."The Ghost of Greece..".
    "..That's One Happy Fuckin Ghost.."

    Tried watching it. My older sister loves this show.. I think it's just me, but I hate common Tv. It just irritates me.. I feel dumber for having watched most of it.. same with this show at first.. then I got to watching some.. but it just got really dumb.. and I couldn't do it anymore.
    However I have to admit that whomever writes these episodes has a stellar sense of humor!! There are some great, and intelligent one liners flung all over! That part I enjoyed.. the "plot" is just overplayed so grossly that I felt it got nearly insulting to watch. Just me.. and I'm weird like that.

    It is definitely NOT for the scholarly type, lol. It's cheesy and that's what I like about it. It's like old Batman or Charmed.

    Good point. I just think they went majorly over board on the struggle in her being an immortal amongst mortals, ya know?

    I have been watching this last season and the show is getting worse...

    The show is mirroring our border troubles and political climate.  I know politics are in shows sometimes but I wanted a break from all that.  It's getting painful to watch now as it tries too hard.
