Supergirl: By Special Arrangement with the Jerry Siegel Family

Supergirl created by Otto Binder and Al Plastino. Played by Melissa Benoist.

Cringe-inducing lines such as "Oh my God. you're a lesbian" and "Why? Because she's just a girl?", two uninspired terrible bosses (I think a Veronica Palmer or a Sam Saperstein type would have been way cooler) and an annoying nerdy best friend stereotype notwithstanding, lead actress Melissa Benoist managed to make the Supergirl pilot an entertaining hour of television. The show has a genuine star In the making, and a mostly capable supporting cast. So maybe the writing will improve in future episodes and get over everybody being needlessly mean to Kara?

And could the people involved just maybe find a way to work in an acknowledgement of Supergirl's creators?
