Critic reviews for It's a Super Life

Although this episode lacks the usual amount of Danvers sisters moments, its dedication to exploring Kara and Lena's friendship makes "It's a Super Life" a strong hour for the series.

It was a cliche for Kara to reflect on her journey these past five years on Supergirl's milestone 100th episode, but the execution was very well done and was a standout hour for Supergirl Season 5.

Supergirl celebrates its 100th episode this week with "It's a Super Life," a charmingly entertaining hour that's part character retrospective and part recalibration...

"It's A Super Life" is part clip show, part alternate universe adventure, and a whole lot of fun throughout.

Supergirl's 100th episode, may be one of the superhero drama's best episodes ever. The plot is mostly inconsequential (there aren't any major twists or big reveals), but that doesn't matter because this episode is 100 percent about character.
