Since that announcement, we have lived through casting guesses, teases of villains, promos, commercials, and a social media barrage.
We also learned the premiere would be in October, not September, adding one more month of torturous waiting.
I never thought it would be possible ... but tonight at 8:30 we'll all be watching a live action Supergirl show.
But perhaps the best thing about this has been the realization that this show is going to be great.
It starts with the star and everything I have seen and heard from Melissa Benoist has made me, as a Supergirl fan, thrilled. She simply is Supergirl. She exudes all the complexity of Kara, the optimism, the energy, the insecurities, the power ... she is Supergirl!
Look at this picture from TV Guide. That is Supergirl!
But the way producers Greg Berlanti and Ali Adler, writer Andrew Kreisberg, director Glen Winter, the co-stars ... everyone who has touched this show ... everyone has gushed about the spirit and energy of this show.
I'll try to do my review by the middle of the week. But maybe I'll try to live tweet tonight.
