Critic reviews for Dangerous Liaisons

Although liaisons frequently happen in episode five there is nothing even vaguely dangerous about them. Unless something drastic happens soon audiences will begin abandoning ship and move on to something with more meat on the bone.

Supergirl Season 5 Episode 5, "Dangerous Liaisons," feels like the introduction to the crucible of which the rest of the season will do its very best to keep from exploding.

November 6, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

She (Kelly) has been almost too perfect since her character was introduced on Supergirl Season 4. Kelly is altruistic and kind, but everyone has flaws. It would be nice to see Supergirl dig even deeper into her character.

It's nice to see Supergirl begin to explicitly put together the pieces, especially this early in the season.

November 4, 2019 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

For an episode built around a big central mystery and anchored around the launch of dream-based tech that blurs fantasy and reality, "Dangerous Liaisons" is disappointingly straightforward.

Andrea's VR commercial was a pitch-perfect sendup of bizarre, borderline creepy tech commercials... In fact, it may be my favorite moment of the season so far!
