[Post 1 of 2 for today]
Well, I could pretty much copy and paste my words from the review of episode 2.
In episode 1 we got less than 3 minutes of Stargirl and her team, without any action.
In episode 2 we got no masked woman on screen at all.
In episode 3 we got over 6 minutes with the team and at least action for half a minute.
In episode 4…..there are….23….seconds(!!) of Stargirl in it as she is prepping to leave her home. Yeah, that’s right, 23 seconds. 🙁
So far season 2 of STARGIRL had very, very, very little Stargirl (or Wildcat) in it.
Again the episode is interesting and I really like how the story is going in general.
What I don’t like is again that Stargirl and her team basically don’t have secret identities.
The Shade knows immediately who Stargirl is, most likely to the brilliant move that her father showed up with the team as they meet.
The Tigress and Crusher escape from prison and they know since the end of season 1 who is under these masks.
Sometimes I don’t know why they even are wearing these masks. So far we saw no interactions at all with any civilians who basically don’t know that they exist(?).
And all the villains learn their “not so secret”-secret identities really quick. 🙁
I wish that Stargirl and Co would have some random bad guys to beat up who at least wouldn’t know who they are.
I do like how Cindy is building up a team of villains, a new Injustice Society. Will be interesting to see how the different evil parties will interact with each other. Hard to say what the plan of the Shade really is.
The trailer for the next episode is actually really promising and shows only scenes with Stargirl and the others!
….so as I am a little disappointed so far….I’m pretty hyped for the next episode!
Things finally seem to start rolling in the action department. 🙂

In this great video, you can see the pre-visualization of some stunts from seasons 1 and 2:
Pretty awesome video and an interesting behind-the-scenes look!
