Tonight the season premiere of Supergirl Season 2 is airing.
There was a time when we weren't sure this was going to happen. There was a time when people dissected the CBS ratings and we wondered if this show was as big a success as we assumed it was. When it was announced the show was on the CW, we wondered if it would change the show, that suddenly it would have the budget of a high school play.
But all those worries have gone away. The show has been embraced by the CW. The same massive amount of promotion happened. And the effects (at least on the brief trailers we have seen) seem just as great.
Even DC Comics seems to have joined in the fun. There is a new comic on the rack, aligned a bit with the show. And this week the DC All Access column is devoted to the show. It is a basic primer on the show, filling in anyone who hasn't seen the first season. There has been too many times when it seemed DC scoffed at the character. Anytime I see the company as a whole promoting Supergirl, I sport a wry smile.
