Critic reviews for Event Horizon
In a televisual world where cross over shows and meandering twenty three film sagas have altered our way of viewing permanently, it is nice to know that Supergirl has no intention of dropping the ball.
Last season ended on a pretty ominous note after a very politically-heavy season, and Supergirl Season 5 Episode 1, "Event Horizon," feels like the perfect reentry into the National City we know and love.
Overall, Supergirl season five is off to a strong start. The premiere episode has more plot than it knows what to do with... However, the premiere is greatly helped by both the addition of some strong new cast members.
Let's move on to more positive things, like all the love that's happening this season... Alex and Kelly are super cute, but there was not much development on this episode.
As is often the case with this show, the feelings driving the action are stronger than the logic of the plot.
