Supergirl 2.03: Sanvers Recap


It’s been a long, long time since I’ve felt the urge to recap anything on TV, but I have sooooo many feelings about Alex Danvers and Maggie Sawyer on Supergirl, you guys. So many. So, here I am.

‘Orange Is The New Black’ is My New Favorite TV Show

I love television. I probably watch more television than most people. I have watched pretty much every show out there, and the ones I haven’t watched I’ve at least attempted to watch at some point or another. Sometimes I go back and finish them (like LOST and Breaking Bad) and other times I abandon them forever.

I watch television shows from all around the world and in any language, and my main criteria for going through that much trouble is usually LGBT content of some kind, because I am, at the core, an LGBT rights advocate/activist, and media/entertainment is my go-to platform. I watch television shows for the entertainment value, but also for the message and the characters and the dialogue.

When I heard OITNB was good, I was excited. When friends emailed to say, “Watch this show!” I was even more excited. I’ve watched pretty much every women-in-prison show I’ve been able to find (Bad Girls (UK), Wentworth (Australia), Capadocia (Mexico) – did I miss any?) so I went into it knowing I’d enjoy the plot, if nothing else. I purposely stayed away from spoilers (a.k.a. avoided Tumblr), and sat down to watch it last night genuinely excited to be watching a good show.

It turned out to be a great show. It turned out to be so great that the sun came out, and my girlfriend and I were still watching it. [continue reading…]
