Stargirl’s first season is a shining example of a female superhero series done right! The villains were complex and layered, it didn’t devolve into a teenage soap-opera as I thought it would and the character development was handled quite well!
The show’s accurate to its source material and actually respects the legacy left behind by the previous generation of the JSA. Despite the finale lacking proper closure, it perfectly set up characters and plot points (including a major one during the after credits) that will definitely be tackled during the next season! With the show’s production moving to the CW network, I’m scared that it’ll dip in quality and actually become a cringeworthy teenage soap-opera. I’m praying that won’t happen, otherwise this show will lose its shine and just fizzle out!
