CBS’ Supergirl Fails to Impress (Spoiler-Free Review)

Movies/Shows

CBS Supergirl

Supergirl does not make a good first, second, or third impression. Three episodes in to season one, I can say I’m ready to tune out for the remainder of the season. CBS’ Supergirl is like Smallville meets Men in Black mixed with The Devil Wears Prada but with all the bad acting and corniness of the 1970’s Wonder Woman live action show. Allow me to explain.

Darth Vader #3

Between the stack of comics I armed myself with in L.A. for the flight back and the new releases of the last few weeks, as well as my library loans, I’ve been consuming a ton of comic books that I can’t wait to review.

A review of Zelda- Symphony of the Goddesses at the Nashville Schermerhorn

Music

Last Thursday my best friend and I attended the second night of the new Zelda-Symphony of the Goddesses concert at the Nashville Schermerhorn. Based on last year’s Final Fantasy performance at the Symphony Center, I expected a big crowd. I didn’t expect almost every seat, including the pricey box seats, to be full, especially since another performance of the show had taken place the night before.

We were delighted with the entire show. I’ve included many videos of good quality from Youtube of the songs (some official recordings off OSTs, others live concert recordings) so that you can get an idea of the selection and progression of the music. Clips from the video games accompanied the music on the big screen pictured above and television for those sitting in the boxes.
