It really is way better than all of the other CW superhero shows.

STARGIRL is renewed for Season 2, but I wonder what the move to the CW will mean for its budget.

Nothing, I hope. I'm looking forward to finally being able to watch SWAMP THING. Who knows, if it gets a big enough audience it might be de-canceled. Alec Holland deserves it.

I've enjoyed STARGIRL than any other Berlanti-verse show of the past season. It's fun, upbeat, and feels like a comic, where kids do dumb things and ALMOST get killed but find a way to learn.

There are plot holes a'plenty but maybe they will resolve those. Between this and DOOM PATROL, all is not lost for DC TV.

I'm sure this is just an Easter Egg for their Golden Age roots, but I think it's hilarious that the Seven Soldiers of Victory should have existed in the 90s, but the picture looks like it was taken in the 40s.


Or maybe the Star-Spangled Kid and Stripes are time-travelers. Or were frozen for 50 years.

I LOVED the appearance of Green Arrow and Speedy! Just like the Flash, there are counterparts. Now, if only that had been Stephen Amell... of course, with this clarity - maybe it is!

It's even possible that Per Degaton, hence unmentioned in the show, had something to do with this. Pulling heroes from across Earth-2's timeline could explain a LOT about Vig, GA, Sir Justin - and as noted, the Kid and Stripesy.

Go watch the episode where Beth gets the goggles, and specifically the part where it gives her info on McNider. And it was mentioned in the first or second episode that the JSA has been around since the 40's. Dragon King is a Japanese war criminal who was supposed to have been executed.

Something definitely retarded the JSA members' aging, if time travel wasn't involved.

That was a DAMN GOOD EPISODE.  Last two or three episodes have kicked the show into gear, for me.  Very watchable, genuinely engrossing.

I think Per Degaton was the big bad on season two of Legends?  I didn't really start watching until midway through season three, so I could be wrong on that.

Feels like this season will shape up to a big fight with the ISA. We'll almost certainly see Solomon Grundy (and I'm guessing Hourman will get revenge for his parents' murder), and I bet a few of the ISA will be finished off but next season might be more of a Jr. ISA vs Stargirl's JSA, like a high school gangs type of thing. Maybe.

Won't be too surprised if we see Per Degaton at some point, or the Ultra-Humanite. Classic JSA villains seem to be a thing with Geoff Johns.
