A lot less angsty, which they call a lot of (IMO too much) attention to in the first episode or two.

As far as boring, I was less interested in what turned out to be the plot of this season than I was in teased things that turned out to actually be buildup for next season's plot, so I felt disappointed that we "never" got to see those things (this season), and a little let down that the season was entirely about what it was actually about. But that's wasn't so much bad, as just, less interesting than the thing I kept hoping they were going to get to.

Mmm not really that different. I like what they did with all the secondary characters (alex, lena James, Wyn) but the Kara centric stuff still a pain.

S04E02: It annoyed me that Supergirl said "person or alien" as though aliens aren't people and "person" is just a synonym for "human", especially given the moral of this show lately.

I just recently started watching S3 on Netflix. I forgot how refreshing this show is to watch, I'm glad I'm back in it. I imagine I'll have to wait for S4 to get to Netflix as well, since the CW only offers thee five most recent episodes.

Double-posting because I'm watching S3 and I'm up to episode 13:
Spoiler:
I'm loving Purity/Julia Freeman. The actress is phenomenal, I feel like she shows great range, and I'm really curious about how her arc will play out. They're very clearly invoking the angry black woman trope, but that's coupled with one of the most empathetic and caring portrayals of a guest character we've seen. She's also a joy to watch under captivity! I much prefer her as a villain over Reign so far, who doesn't seem as interesting.

I'll see how this progresses!

Season 4, Parasite Lost

Spoiler:
I'm finding it interesting seeing where they go with the dichotomy between James' Gaurdian and the fact that he's now a symbol for the Earth First movement. The fact that he no longer wants to denounce them (which he really should have done as soon as it happens) in the idea that he will somehow be able to persuade people to his side, I'm wondering if they are going to have him fall into their trap to show how poisonous and persuasive this mindset can be.

I'm glad that Kara has learnt her lesson and actually let Alex and the DEO handle this week's threat.

Really love J'hon's new role as alien PI. They've been doing a good job of keeping him as a pacifist now. Sad that Manchester Black didn't show up this week though :(
