so supergirl is flopping with bad rates

but one thing is making me watch it, and is the director red eyes shit

for some unknow shit of mine I begin to think he is brainiac and I don't know why

anyway
why do you guys are keeping up?
or why is it so bad?
>>
He's Cyborg Superman, please at least google the names of characters before you post
>>
It's bombing in ratings because they tried to design a show for girls. It went good for a while then Jessica Jones became a thing. So suddenly, all the feminists decided to ditch Supergirl in favor of Jessica Jones because it's more "feminist".
>>

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hank_Henshaw

Not Brainiac. Learn comics.
>>
>>78005242
I-I like the show.
>>
Someone on another thread said something like Henshaw's name is just a distraction so people don't guess he's actually J'onn

Might be interesting but I don't watch anymore anyway
>>
>>78005293
That's fucking retarded. It's flopping because it's bad television. Simple as that.
>>
So how terrible was Red Tornado?
>>
>>78005410
bad

really bad
>>
>>78005288
>>78005300

they could do it

but I still think he isn't the cyborg superman for reasons
>>
>>78005410
I saw some webms on /co/ where he made Supergirl cum several times so I guess he wasn't that bad
>>
>>78005420
I kinda want to check it out for morbid curiosity but I know it will absolutely piss me off. Supergirl is just bad television all around, and it doesnt help that it has to compete with Gotham and Jessica Jones. And frankly JJ, even with its flaws, is still entertaining and really a polar opposite to what Supergirl is
>>
>>78005242
The intended audience went to Jessica Jones, sad but true, no guy wants to come near it because it got blacked simple as that
>>
There is a thread like this on /tv/ right now but all they are doing is complaining that she has a black love interest.
>>
>>78005470
one real problem is the fact it's television
you can't escape it

but there are other thing that I can't quite figure yet

it's like something is missing and I can't point it

it's sad because I wanted it to be good and enjoyable
>>
>>78005516
>>78005542
I don't know why the black problem and shit
but one time in the tornado episode she saves a black family and the black friend so I can understand the anon rages but it's not the main problem with the series
>>
>>78005447
Great. And those reasons are?
>>
>>78005607
I read the cyborg superman and I understand
but I have to agree it would be boring if he was cyborg after all

it's just bad taste I guess
but oh well
>>
>>78005582
The black guy white girl pair-up is overdone at this point. People are just flat out sick of it.
>>
>>78005242
>so supergirl is flopping with bad rates

Is it?

From what I remember it's doing as well as CW DC shows do.

Problem is that the network it's on expects and requires more than that.
>>
>>78005288
So is Superman black in this universe? because Cyborg superman was a robo clone of superman.
>>
>>78006657
>From what I remember it's doing as well as CW DC shows do.
CW is a small network so its high ratings are another networks low rating.
>>
>>78006599
>The black guy white girl pair-up is overdone at this point
No, it isn't. You just seem a tad bit racist.
>>
>>78006844
He's probably just cranky because his epic meme isn't taking and he's having to do so much work to push it.

>>78006808
True, but >>78006657 is correct. It's 2015; we now have digital-first coming up to what, the half-decade mark?

Ratings should matter, but not the channel. Everybody has access to everything, and this gatekeeper shit the platforms try to do is bullshit of the highest order. If a show can get 3 million viewers but that's no longer enough for your advertisers on one channel or even platform, you as a broadcaster need to have somewhere to shunt it that allows you to continue making it and getting that ad revenue, instead of just cancelling and saying welp guess it's back to reruns of Bonanza and Wheel of Fortune for us. It's not 19 fuckin 50.
>>
>>78006844
>>78006977
Srsly, it's the same pairing of stereotypes in every fucking show. Nerdy, awkward girl plus black slab of muscle. It gets old. Some variety would be nice for a change.
>>
>>78007016
They have plenty of variety. Don't be such a dingus.

I prefer spanish/black pairings anyways.
>>
>>78007075
I really don't give a fuck what race they are and more that I've seen this exact constellation three times in cape series this year alone.

The dynamic between Kara and Cat is much better and definitely a breath of fresh air. I'm glad it gets more screentime than yet another white-white-black love triangle.
>>
>>78006808
My point exactly.

It's not "bombing", it's doing as well as DC shows currently tend to do. If CBS or w/e looked at Arrow and Flash and thought "we can do DOUBLE that with our own show aimed at that same demo!" then that's kinda really not the shows fault
>>
The show had such potential, and then they went the route of gurl power and lame Special Effects. I mean Smallville is on par with this show in the sfx department, heck most youtube videos can whip out better ones.

Also the heavy handed dialogue really interrupts the flow of the show. My friends and I play a drinking game, where every time an overt gurl power sjw thing is said we take a shot. The first 2 episodes we got buzzed pretty quick, but last weeks episode I was nearly drunk by the first commercial break. Have the script showing Kara being a strong woman, instead of reminding the viewer that men are terrible and holding her back.

The only reason I still watch this is because I am a huge Superman/Supergirl fan, and Melissa is a qt.
>>
>>78007501
You don't understand, different networks have different base audience numbers, if a show does less than the base audience then it is a flop.
>>
>>78005582
Nerds are very racist and they often have a small dick
Fangirls don't like to use black males on shipping
That's the black problem. It's aiming to no one.
>>
>>78007016
Nerdy awkward boy plus hot chick out of his league is the most stereotypical pairing by far but anons rarely complain
>>
>>78007977
It has more or less the same ratings than Gotham and they're considered pretty good for Fox,we're talking about ABC not HBO jesus christ.

That's not true.
>>
>>78008260
Not that anon but feminists stopped defending Supergirl with their blogs after JJ arrived. Not that they actually matters to the ratings and probably they're still watching Supergirl but JJ is THE revolutionary feminist show that everyone should be watching right now or else you're an agent of patriarchy.
>>
>>78005448
Post said webms please.
>>
>>78005242
Let me spoil it for you then.

It's J'onn, the Martian Manhunter. I mean, what are all those X's there for anyways?
>>
>>78008331
that's retarded that Jessica Jones is the "feminist" show. It shows how much modern feminists are against themselves.

Supergirl force feeds you feminist lines and strawmen constantly, like "She's still important aside from Superman and doesn't need to be compared to him" kind of shit. It's straight feminist material inside and out.

Whereas Jessica Jones isn't even remotely feminist. It's just an ordinary female with powers and it's treated as such. It's just normal rather than forcing the "SEE GUYS IT'S A GIRL SUPERHERO THAT'S A GIRL" shit.

So they essentially hate the forced feminism and love the ordinary shit that doesn't pander to them.
>>
>>78010863
...yes. being treated equally, that's what it means
>>
How the fuck is Supergirl "feminist"?
>>
>>78010955
But the majority of people who call themselves feminists believe in the Supergirl form of feminism. Like in your face, going to radical lengths, bringing up "rape culture" and deluded shit like that.

Women who really want to just be treated equally tend to not even refer to themselves as feminists anymore because that problem's so big. I believe in it too. But radical feminism is taking the main stage and I want no part in that.
>>
>>78005242
>or why is it so bad?
Hate the sister
Hate Cat Grant
Hate the super secret anti alien agency
And I hate how Supergirl is powerful enough to dropkick the planet, but lets everybody tell her what to do. I gave up after two episodes.
>>
>>78011165
The show, not the comics. Every episode has a feminist theme such as "I'm different from Superman, don't compare us" and "Just because I'm a girl doesn't I'm weak" and "Mean men in charge are evil and mean women in charge are just misunderstood" etc. Watch the show. I know because I watched it. and for some reason I still keep watching it
>>
>>78011239
I feel like Supergirl's character is Felicity outside of the costume, and Laurel inside the costume, when compared to Arrow. The clumsy glasses-wearing waifu bait, then in costume, she thinks she can fucking take on the world and do whatever she wants, then jumps into everything and gets her shit wrecked.
>>
>>78010154
Here's one
>>
>>78011815
I guess we now know that Supergirl likes it rough.
>>
>>78005242
I'm going with Martian Manhunter.

I thought Brainiac at first too but he strikes me as a good guy and not a villain. So, J'onzz is my official guess.
>>
>>78011815
Next he's going to give her the ol' Tornado Tongueâ„¢

could he actually do that?
>>
I want to m8 with her sister!
>>
>>78005242
Marvel idiots hijack every thread about this show in krder to promote the Marvel kiddie porn on Netflix. It's pathetic.
>>
>>78005516
You wish.
>>
>>78005516
>no guy wants to come near it because it got blacked simple as that
Jessica Jones is nothing but being blacked up the butt by Luke Cage.
>>
>>78011269
The Superman comparisons are in the comics, too. They didn't just asspull Kara's inferiority complex. I didn't notice a "mean men in charge are evil" so much as "General Lane is an asshole, but he was a huge asshole in Superman, too. It's his character to be an asshole."

Lord and Cat are two sides of the same coin of cutthroat business, and Henshaw's a manhunter. Did I miss any "evil men"?

Nevermind the BBEG is a woman who wants to genocide humanity, so I do question where the "FEMINISM! NO!" screams come from outside of some stuff Kara says that her boss calls her retarded for.
>>
>>78011269
Oh will you all please shut the fuck up with this annoyjng complaint. You all whine more than the most stuck-up bitch in history. My goodness, the show is about a young woman, and you assholes whine about her dealing with female issues. Stupid asses!
>>
>>78010863
Jessica jones pandered plenty to everyone but fans of comic books.
>>
>>78006724

Oh wow, you really don't know anything about the character do you?
