Critic reviews for American Dreamer

Much of the team is literally divided geographically, but there's a little bit more to it than that in "American Dreamer".

If Lockwood's policies were harsh before, they're now going to be even worse as he seeks to get revenge on every other alien he can find.

If there's an episode this season that has redeemed my faith in what Supergirl can achieve, it's this one.

The episode jumps into campy overdrive in a way that may have worked for you but didn't quite work for me.

That network shift is on my mind because "American Dreamer" really feels like a callback to the show's first season. It pushes the earnest sentimentality as far as it can go without breaking.
