It looks ok, I think my brother could have photoshop something better.

Hogwash.  We use anachronistic terms and phrases all the time.  Every time we dial a number on a cellphone, or hang it up for that matter.  Some people use them without even knowing how or why they're wrong. 

Heck, there are those who would argue that the imperial system of measurements is an anachronism, and look how much mileage that gets.

I still shake my head when someone on an MMO is unfamiliar with the phrase "rolling a new character" or if they are, where it comes from.

Agreed, rather "meh".

So, I saw the first episode tonight, and I thought it was pretty good.

I do wish Kara wasn't being sent to Earth to watch over her cousin ... wouldn't most parents just save their daughter because they could if they had the means?


Beyond that, the actress playing Supergirl is very likable, and the effects are nice for a television show.

My verdict: I'll keep watching. :D

And I have no problem with "James" Olsen being African American, but does he have to be suave and sophisticated? I miss a nerdy Jimmy...

Yeah it's a bit odd in something beating the empowering women drum that she evidently only had worth in relation to Kal. Not to even mention Jimmy being sent in to be paternalistic since Kal's far too busy.

Anyone notice if there were changes from the 'leaked' version? Wondering if I need to bother watching before next week.

Makes perfect sense to me.  That's the Kara El origin story I'm already familiar with.  If you don't want to spend an entire pilot (or season) telling an origin story when you can spend five or ten minutes recapping the story people are already familiar with, then just show us a few quick glimpses and move on to saving the airplane.  Let's not make this another Smallville.

To me, that's a recent invention. When I started reading comics Kara had come to Earth from Argo City when that city faced destruction from Kryptonite poisoning. They saved Kara because she was important to them. Not because they expected Kal-El to need a super babysitter.

Minor edits, mostly tightened things up a tiny bit. Didn't she say the "It means "hope" thing about her symbol in the "leaked" -- that was gone, for example.  I noticed because I always thought that was stupid.

Not bad for a premiere episode. SFX are decent for a TV budget. I hope we quickly start getting away from 'Oh, I hope I can do this, I hope I'm good enough.' Banging that drum as a way to show she's learning and that her confidence needs building will get old fast.

What I noticed, and then kept noticing were the clumsy references to Kal. Didn't say 'Kal;' didn't say 'Superman.' It was always 'my cousin,' 'he,' 'him,' 'the big guy,' etc. Maybe it was just me, but every reference to 'him' plopped like a lead balloon. You'd think that the showrunners could've at least gotten permission to say the names. Guess not, tho, and the workarounds got rather annoying by the fifth or sixth use.

Thanks, sounds like I can skip it then.

That's fair.  It's been long enough since I've seen that origin referenced that I'd completely forgotten about it.

Just saw the pilot.  I liked everything except James Olsen.  Vartox was obscure enough that I recognized the name but still had to look it up.  But, hey - super-battle...
When you insult someone by calling them a "pig" or a "dog" you aren't maligning pigs and dogs everywhere.  The same is true of any term used as an insult.

I noticed in last night's episode that they lost all the reticence over calling superman "Superman", or "Kal-El", or "Clark", or whatever, along with suddenly being free mentioning more details from that side of the property. It stood out very clunkily in the first episode, and I'm glad they dropped it. I wonder if during early production of the pilot they had issues over rights and such.
