Finally, I could watch the new Stargirl episode today.
The final one of the season.
The final one of the entire show.
It was a solid finale with ….finally… some action and a good ending for the show and wholesome endings for most characters.
It clearly looked like the producers knew before the final episode that the show wouldn’t be renewed as there is no real cliffhanger in this one, but a real ending.
So it works much better as a final episode than the last Batwoman episode where the folks thought the show would go on.
Some images from the episode:

The final showdown at the junkyard was nice, even though I expected a little more action. Especially Wildcat had very few action scenes here.
But at least the masked women had quite a lot of screen time in this one 🙂
In my opinion, the show has some flaws: too little action, too little screen time for the masked women, practically no secret identities, too many heroes, and villains vs heroes fighting each other without the public knowing about anything.
But, it had 4(!) masked women in the show lately, so it was always very exciting for me …when… they had some scenes.
So, like Batwoman…. Stargirl has come to end now as well.
Not a good feeling.
I hope there will be a new show with a masked woman as the lead character soon to fill that …. void.
After all, there are so few TV shows which can offer that.
Oh, and the last episode actually offered a female unmasking in the last minutes:
Not my favorite mask, but it’s a good disguise for sure. Nice to have some unmasking content in the very last episode.
Today I wanna present some scenes from a documentary!
Well, that doesn’t sound too interesting and sexy…
Indeed, but this documentary has a LOT to offer when it comes to masked women!
Including some unmasking action and interesting dialogues about why some of these fighters a wearing masks and so on.
The documentary was aired on German TV this week. It has Spanish language and German subs.
To present it here I translated the important parts and embedded English subs in the video which took some time.
I don’t speak Spanish so I translated the German subs.
Hope you will enjoy it!

And here is the video:
About the documentary in general:
Well, there are very interesting parts and rather uninteresting ones.
The documentary follows 4 different women who all are Luchadoras and addresses the problematic social struggles in Mexico, where crime rates are very high, women are often murdered and a special macho culture is still pretty dominant (according to the documentary).
About the scenes in the video:
The part where she is at home and talking about why she is wearing a mask is already very intriguing to me.
Actually, she is always wearing one throughout the entire documentary (90 minutes)! That gives her a really mysterious aura, I like that!
I don’t know if all the fight was staged from the beginning to the end. Normally wrestling and Luchadora fights are mostly completely scripted… to my knowledge.
I want to believe that the ending here wasn’t scripted… but I just don’t know.
However, I love quite a LOT about it. Both get unmasked, sadly we only see one unmasking and only from behind.
But I love how she is covering her face all the time to prevent anyone from seeing her face, I admire that kind of effort 🙂
I don’t know if perhaps even the dialogues from one/some pretty loud spectators are scripted as well…but they are just great, it’s like someone with a fetish for masked women had written them 😉
Actually, I even got excited as I was writing the subtitles 😆
I really would like to see such a fight live in person one day.
And imagine a fight like that that isn’t scripted… oh man! 2 masked, hot ladies fighting against each other. The one who unmasks the other one first wins!
And then you could add some other mask types to the mix as well. Some rubber cowls for example… or full-face latex masks 😉
It seems that these female Luchadora masks go off rather easily in comparison to the male full-face masks that have even a lacing.
But they cover up the face quite well, so it’s certainly a mask type that I really like.
A good disguise and quite a dramatic turn of events.
I think she overreacted big time, I mean her partner was beaten with a bat, ok, but that’s no reason to shoot someone.
And if she shoots it doesn’t need to be a deadly shot.
Ok, it was pretty dark… but that boy with his bright shirt was still visible well enough…
All in all a solid scene.
Later in the movie, we have terrorists in gas masks. There is also one female terrorist, but she is infiltrating the event as a waitress and the only terrorist that doesn’t wear a gas mask at any time.
