    I've come to the conclusion that I have no idea what people mean when they say "cheesy." It seems to mean different things to different people. I found it to be light and refreshing in tone, and much closer to what Man Of Steel should have felt like. I'm not sure if that's what people mean by cheesy or not.

    The special effects were as good as any effects-driven TV show on a budget in the hundreds of thousands rather than hundreds of millions.

    I lost count of the number of times Supergirl used super speed in this episode. I can't imagine what you mean by that.

    "Cheesy" is one of the often thrown around "trigger words" that has been so overused that it's lost almost all actual meaning. Sort of like "emo," or "hipster," and so on. Essentially, in this context, it tends to actually be code for "tone that I don't personally like."

    Because there's such a thing as blue flame. It tends to be flame that's particularly hot. Seriously, turn on a Bunsen burner sometime and see for yourself. Plus, it helps differentiate it from Superman's heat vision, which is almost always depicted as being red/orange-ish in color.

    There's no reason to differentiate it from Superman's heat vision. Kyrptonian heat vision is red/orange and that's all there is to it! But yeah I guess they were going for that blue flame idea.
    I don't remember the exact moment but someone referred to something as being "kyrptonese"? That kinda irked me, I don't see why they didn't just stick with Kyrptonian.

    No, it's Kryptonese. The official language of Krypton has always been Kryptonese. DC changed it to Kryptonian (unofficially) but the name still stuck, even in Superman: Birthright which was Superman's official origin up until the New 52. Officially that's what it's been called since the beginning.

    For most of Superman's published history, Kryptonian writing was represented by random, alien-looking squiggles. In the 1970s, E. Nelson Bridwell attempted to rationalize these squiggles into a 118-letter alphabet, referring to the language as "Kryptonese." This standardized alphabet was then used by DC Comics until John Byrne's 1986 "reboot" of the Superman universe.[7]

    I liked how there was a Kryptonian prison that was inside of the Phantom Zone

    interesting. didnt know that. still i dont really like the way it sounds. if someone's Spanish they speak Spanish, Germans speak German, if someone's Japanese they speak Japanese. it just sounds odd to say they're Kryptonian and speak Kryptonese.

    just my opinion.

    It's not so surprising, really. They did basically the same thing with Atom Smasher in Flash and Huntress and Bronze Tiger in Arrow.

    Oh I completely agree, I'm just saying that Kryptonese isn't inaccurate.

    Missed it. Was it any different than the leaked pilot?

    For those who missed the pilot, it's free to download on iTunes.

    As I said in another thread...

    I very much enjoyed it. There's plenty of room for improvement but I think Benoist is terrific and I just love the general feel of it. And the fact that I think it will work especially well for girls between the ages of, say, six and fifteen may turn some people off but I think that's very much a good thing for a Supergirl show. As we saw with the Flash, the pilot is one thing but what really matters is where they go from here - and, for the forseable future at least, I am really looking forward to finding out.

    So yeah, count me in as cautiously optimistic. And, yes, I already enjoy it more than Man of Steel.

    I think they might have changed the music during the suit design/debuting her self as a hero montage. I don't remember that song playing during the leaked pilot but it has been quite a few months since I saw it.
