I looked, found what should be it, but every time I try to play it, it sends me to a link to signup for an account in order to play. Even when I signed up for a trial account, it still wouldn’t play. Anyone have a link?

I see the pilot has been leaked to torrent sites. I have downloaded a client, utorrent, but am not sure how or where to get the video. Anyone help with that?

@Bert – You forgot the part where she thinks of the ASPCA Commercial with the Sarah Mclachlan song playing so that she can focus her emotions to cry laser tears.

Finally saw it. Loved it or, rather, loved Melissa in the role. As many have said, they had to cover a lot of ground in the pilot, and I think overall they did a commendable job. The show has potential, with the lead role I believe having been appropriately cast. Some great peril scenes in the pilot, plenty of action, and I think a good addition to the current crop of DC Comics superheroes on the small screen.

Kaizar’ Supergirl pilot:

Supergirl by Kaizar

Scene 1
(interior)
In the cafeteria of the biology department of the NCU. Kara/Supergirl (played by Chyna) eats lunch with some guy.)

Supergirl (SG) “Are you going to finish those fries?”
Some Guy (SG) “Why are you always so hungry, no pond intended.”
SG “It’s my 5000 calorie per day body. On Earth I have big muscles because of the yellow sun. (plot twistse you never saw coming) “Oh no, now you know I am Supergirl.”
SG “I never would have guess this. You are a real 21st century female.”

Scene 2
(exterior)
Supergirl lands at the power station to fight Vartox. She polishes off a chicken leg and stows the bone in her cape. Supergirl does not litter. Vartox steps out to face her with his atomic axe.

Vartox (SG) “I will kill you with my atomic axe, which can kill you.”
SG “You can try, but I have no fear of you and your axe which can kill me.”

Right off the back Vartox swings his atomic axe at Supergirl, who (in a brilliant plot twistse) catches it between her large, natural breasts.

SG “It is not fun stopping you, but I do it for the sake of saving people.”
SG “You are brave and fearless and bold. I cannot wait to see what will happen next.”
SG “Is there a Denny’s around here?”

The End

Kaizar
Kaizar

@Tuathal

I said: OR.

There are characters with no fear from the start and I would definitely expect Supergirl of all heroes to be brave & fearless & bold, right off the back and take the possibility of death like a fearless warrior. I would expect her to only be doing the superhero thing for the sake of saving people and not because it’s fun nor anything like that. This is just a messed up Supergirl who looks like her personality was ripped from the 20th Century. The character isn’t even relatable to 21st century females. There’s just nothing special about this Supergirl, she’s a useless extra character and I don’t care for Superheroes like that. At least Heroes like Robin have their useful aftermath, but this Supergirl just doesn’t contribute anything you couldn’t already get from another character. Theres just no purpose for this kind of
I could have written a way more better Supergirl series then this, with way more better characters that are actually important & mandatory, with tons of great awesome kick ass stories & plots & scenarios & situations, with plot twistses you would never see until its too late; that would make you want to see what will happen next soo badly that you can’t wait for the next episode.
Basically like a Supergirl Ultimate, but for just Supergirl.

I agree with Anon.”

@Anon – I’ve looked back through your posts on this thread and I see nothing to warrant the above quote.

I’m thinking the character will gain confidence and face danger more like the character in the 1984 movie as the series progresses. While I enjoy the peril, I’m also hoping she does quite a bit of butt kicking and earning the confidence of those around her. I do remember an established Superman in the movies running away from a fight with the people of Metropolis still in danger while the villains called him a coward.

I agree with Tuathal about being sick of this argument for “realism,” If I want realism, I’ll read a phonebook. I go to this stuff to escape reality. The dark and gritty stuff works for Batman. Superman and Supergirl should face tough villains and serious situations, but I prefer them to be funner and more hopeful.

Tuathal

Green Arrow had 5 years of experience before he started fighting crime in Starling City… he was plenty afraid on the island and in the flashbacks in the show. Superman is typically portrayed as having years of using his powers and honing his ability to use them beginning as an infant. Yet Superman certainly was filled with fear when confronted with kryptonite for the first time in the films. Batman had years of training before fighting crime, pretty much focused on it from the moment he watched his parents shot. Also he’s pretty much mentally unstable in his own right. I enjoy watching the super-powered heroes discover what the limits of their powers are over time. More room for the character to develop and grow. I’ve been more interested in Laurel’s transition to Black Canary than anything Ollie has done throughout the run of Arrow.

Kaizar
Kaizar

There’s still everything else I said.

I don’t recall ever seeing Superman afraid, and he was raise on earth. I don’t even recall batman being fearful.

The Flash tv show is Barry with doubt, because of the altering of the timeline with his mother’s death. It change his personality from what it originally was. Only way Barry could be like the original timeline is with help of the Reverse Flash.

I’d expect Supergirl to face danger more like Green Arrow or whatever.

Tuathal

I’ve been seeing this “ultra-realistic” term thrown around a lot lately… We are talking about a comic book alien who can fly and shoot beams out of her eyes because of the radiation of a yellow sun vs a red sun. What part of that is at all realistic let alone “ultra-realistic”? From what I have seen, the TV series starts off with Kara having lived on earth for a while but never exploring her super powers. I fully expect a novice to get her ass handed to her and be fearful when first starting out. That’s realistic. Supergirl sounds a lot like the first season of the Flash, a superhero just starting out and exploring their limits. He has faced some formidable enemies and self doubt and I fully expect she will too.

Kaizar
Kaizar

I agree with Anon.

I expect Supergirl to not get her ass handed to her.

She shouldn’t be fearful either, in any death possible situation.

I wanted a Supergirl that’s more like the male superheroes, but thats also in the 2 piece Supergirl suit. And I wanted the show to be dark & gritty. And also ultra-realistic.

Imagine if Supergirl or Superman was face to face with Lex Luthor in a non conflict sitituation and Supergirl or Superman responds: “I’m a Superhero asshole”
And Lex Luthor then replies: “you ain’t shit”

Love hearing all the diverse comments. Wish I could form my own, but I do not seem to be able to find a way to access the pilot and watch if for myself. Damn!

wid

No worries, Bert. I think this show looks quite good and any watering down is surprisingly slight (tights under skirt is about it). If it progresses in this way, I’ll happily watch each new episode.

I just get frustrated with the constant SJW narrative that shirtless dude shows and movies are fine, boys/men enjoying a sexy female is a horrible evil that must be destroyed, and having hobbies I’m enjoying ruined by ‘activists’ pushing that narrative. I kind of miss the days of developing a crush on Helen Slater flying around, kicking butt in a skirt without a group of dingbats thinking I’ve committed some great wrong on womenkind.

Bert
Bert

@wid – My bad. I looked back at only your last two comments (feminists bad, and waiting to watch full pilot) before posting my comment. I mistook your strong opinions on double standards as implying the Supergirl pilot was watered down, which I don’t think is the case.

wid
wid

@Bert, I think you have directed your comment at the wrong person. I’ve been very supportive of the show, am very much looking forward to it, and have been defending it (just read the bazillions of comments I’ve left on this thread). I think the action is good, the costume is good, the actress is great, and everything seems much better than what I would expect from DC/’Geek Chic’ culture these days. I don’t expect gratuitous upskirt shots or overly sexual peril nor do I want the dark angle. Something akin to the Supergirl movie or JLU works fine for me (and there’s a lot more sex appeal to those than what has been going on in PC culture lately) and I think that’s what we might get if the PC whiners don’t get to censor content.

Bert
Bert

@wid – Perhaps you should hold off on criticizing Supergirl for not going far enough until you’ve seen the full pilot. The two fights with Vartox are surprisingly good. The context of the two battles is that Kara is inexperienced and not used to fighting. Vartox takes full advantage and does not hold back. I fully expected the fight scenes to be tamed down because the hero is a woman, but they didn’t go that way. Kara is defeated in no uncertain terms in the first fight, and Melissa is outstanding in these scenes, depicting Kara as shocked and overwhelmed by Vartox’s brutality. The second fight is also excellent. She has a plan and knows what to expect, and fares better in the battle, but still takes a terrible beating and is nearly defeated. It’s pretty thrilling stuff. far better than I’d hoped for.

wid

I’m in total agreement with sugarcoater on the PC double standards. I am quite happy with what we were able to get (pretty actress, skirt, costume similar to the most popular version, good action), but the feminists and social justice types are never going to allow the character to be sexualized to quite the level of Arrow, Smallville, Captain America, et al does the male characters. Those shows/movies market non-stop shirtless scenes, with pants barely above an adult only rating, for women. DC ruins costumes, cancels covers, replaces creative teams, and recalls products the second one of these selective prudes throws a tantrum on her blog. Yet the same DC puts out a cover featuring shirtless, younger looking versions of its heroes as strippers. They certainly never worry about ‘sexualizing,’ and ‘objectifying’ and all those nonsense SJW words when it comes to attracting non-heterosexual males.

Anon
Anon

The superheroes in the recent comic book movies haven’t been sexualized at all. Batman? Iron man? Thor? Superman? At what point in any of the movies were they in a sexualized beatdown? That’s right, never. Why would you want to treat the women in the same genre any different? Oh yeah, you have a niche fetish that makes you extremely biased. Well I enjoy superheroine beatdowns as well, but I realize that a series where the pilot contains a line saying theres finally a female superhero for young girls to look up to isn’t exactly catered to men and especially not men who sexualizes superheroines to the extreme. There’s a lot of people disappointed the show won’t cater to them, pretty much every guy on the internet is angry because it isn’t dark and gritty like Daredevil.

@Bert

I’m pretty easy to please, all I wanted to see was a powerful female character who can kick ass, I didn’t see that in the pilot from Supergirl, she got her ass handed to her in both fights, and was easily captured. However I have changed my mind, I will watch the second episode in the hopes the General gets some quality air time and she can kick ass 🙂

I could of come up with better Supergirl stories & plots for the first 40 minute episode.

Bad & weak writing is just that.

Sugarcoater

Easy Anon, just putting out my opinion. By all means, disagree. But from what I’ve seen, male characters in comic book movies take a beating and then some, but the female characters are treated with kid gloves and entirely de-sexualized in the modern comic book/movie-verse.

Anon
Anon

PC mania? Pushing the limits? Are Arrow and The Flash filled with pushing the limits non-PC stuff? Should they be? Should we see The Flash writhing in mud? People hoping for more than what Arrow and The Flash has done in terms of the hero taking a beating is setting themselves up for disappointment. Looking at the pilot the way it is setup, it pretty much follows the same formula as The Flash does for the first few episodes. Establishing villains where the hero takes a beating first then comes around later for a victory. What is seen in the pilot is pretty much the limit to what you can expect in the show in terms of taking a beating. Even dark and gritty Daredevil didn’t contain anything out of the ordinary in terms of a hero taking a beating. No reason to start cursing the producers for not catering to a tiny niche when the whole point of the show is to make a good superhero series with an ass kicking female lead.

Sugarcoater
sugarcoater

I think the realistic hope for superheroine peril fans is something along the lines of sequences such as the Kryptonite in the pool from Superman I, a Kryptonite beam sequence as seen in Superman III, and full-on fight with an equally powerful villain. Perhaps, if we’re lucky, we could have a seen like the one in Supergirl with her writhing in mud. But yeah, I can’t imagine in the current PC mania that anything resembling a fetish sequence would ever find its way into the series. After all, considering how colleges now have “safety rooms” for sensitive college-age students who voluntarily attend a seminar, I doubt mainstream programming would ever consider pushing the limits.
Now if Netflix got hold of Supergirl and did a Daredevil treatment on her…

Todd

If people are looking for fetish content wake up,its not going to be there. Instead of whining about what it doesnt have and this and that be thankful that at least in episode one were seeing Supergirl take a beating. I think the story sets up nicely for further battles against villains that want to defeat her and get payback. Like I said its not a fetish video

Bert
Bert

@LostAtSea – I’d expect the storytelling to improve as the series unfolds. The pilot had a lot to do in 44 minutes, so depth and fine story weren’t really options. Also, Berlanti’s other shows have improved as they have progressed. That doesn’t mean it’ll move in a direction you will like, but my hope is it will be compelling.

@Paul GPF – Make me understand. You’re on this site. We are talking about the only TV series on the air centered on a superheroine. She’s a fine actor, she looks great in the suit, and there’s pretty hard-hitting action sequences where she faces peril. And it’s free. When you say you won’t be watching the second episode, it makes me wonder what the show would have to be to get you on board.

Paul GPF

@LostAtSea

Your not the only one unimpressed, I agree with everything you’ve just said. I was really looking forward to this show, but after watching the pilot, I don’t think I’ll be watching the second episode 🙁

LostAtSea

I guess I’m the only person who isn’t impressed with this at all. I’d love to see a mainstream superhero show with a female lead kicking everyone’s @$$ (supergirl is a great choice too) but I just don’t see this taking off. It looks too much like a supergirl version of Charmed.

Maybe that’s the point, though. It’s marketed at women mostly I’d guess so it makes sense this is what would come out of it. But it needs to have a good story and I didn’t see anything in this trailer that suggested plot was at all important to the makers of this show.

I really hope it works out better than I think it will though.

I had low expectations when I started watching the leaked pilot. A few minutes pass, and I thought I was watching Devil Wears Prada. Then the plane-scene took all my expectations and blew them straight to krypton. I don’t really watch TV series, but this one is a keeper for me.

1. She sells pain brilliantly. As with most people on this forum, I enjoy watching her in peril.
2. She puts a lot of effort in her action moves.
3. She looks hot in the blue leotard and skirt. Especially when trying it on for the first time, minus the hose.
4. She portrays an adorable girl-next-door personality when she’s not wearing the uniform, and I love how her aura changes to that of a valiant fighter as soon as she puts it on, but still retains a smidgen of innocence about her that keeps the audience rooting for her.
5. The villain was relentless in beating her up. Very much expected, as this is a mainstream series. And he does not disappoint.
6. The romance is there, just not developed yet. Give it time, she’ll end up dating one or the other pretty soon, imo. In a superheroine production, I guess someone’s gotta be the dude in distress at some point, lol

Let’s hope they keep this up for future episodes.

Watched it and enjoyed it. Its mainstream TV so if you expected it to have sexualized content with villains gropping her prone body and tons of bondage and slavery you would have to be living in a dream world. That said the pilot does not shy away from bondage, even if very brief. Also a number of fight scenes, ne where she gets her ass handed to her and the other she nearly does. Heck she even begs a surrender at one point. This is pretty good, as much as you could hope for coming out of a major network and I’m quite happy with it.

The alien villains angle might be convienant but its not the only option. Obviously there is Kryptonite for other villains to find and use. Plus there is still magic that could be tossed out. Plus there are tech gadgets (toyman) that could give her trouble. So they have actually opened it up pretty wide for options for villains. More than on season worth even if the show makes it past that. I like it more than Flash. Is it gear towards a female audience? Not too much but of course, look at viewer demographics! That said its not, so far, obnoxiously female centric. You may not like it lacking certain things but les face it, most of us guys will watch it just cuz it has a hot girl in a supergirl suit either kicking or getting her butt kicked, even if that’s just 1/4 of the show.

If they can hook the hero crowd and a chunk of the female crowed then this may live past season 1, if they don’t screw it up. I agree with the 4 episode test mentioned by someone. They spent like 14 million on the pilot so if it sucked that is bad news since the regular episodes can’t do that. Question is what will they cut or tone down?

wid
wid

I’m still resisting watching the full pilot until the official airdate (and hoping for strong ratings to persuade the decision makers to put forth more Supergirl/superheroine content). I like what I did see and love Melissa in costume.

Going forward, I am hoping the character gains more confidence and seems convincing as someone with Kryptonian powers who can handle almost anything. It makes the peril that much better when there is build up and it seems shocking someone has the ability to defeat the heroine.

I think our actual disagreement would be over whether or not that scene was worth either homage or theft.

@Burclee – That’s funny. Woody Allen has made some fine films, although I hate Match Point so much, and he’s creepy with the whole, y’know. I’m sure you can see the quote does not apply in this specific case.

Burclee
Burclee

@ Bert
With regard to the “I can’t”…”yes you can” business…
There is a scene in Woody Allen’s “Stardust Memories” where Tony Roberts is giving a press conference about his and Woody’s latest film. Someone in the crowd asks if the scene in the wax museum was a “homage to Vincent Price.” Roberts replies.
“Homage? No, we just stole the idea.”

Bert
Bert

@Burclee – I suspect it will get better. Unlike a movie, a weekly series has ample time to build characters over many episodes. As you said, the pilot had to cover a lot of ground to get the audience up to speed with the story. That doesn’t leave time for also developing three dimensional characters. As for the “I can’t” – “Yes, you can” homage, Berlanti likes to throw out references to previous canon that people will pick up on. It can sound a little on the nose sometimes, but making viewers feel like they are in on that stuff works. As for it being written on a comic book level, um, it’s drawn directly from comic books. (Sorry, I couldn’t help being simple about you complaining it was too simple!) Point taken on that front, but Berlanti has proven to increase quality as his series’ progress, so there is reason for optimism. And really, isn’t Melissa just right?

Bert
Bert

When evaluating the pilot, I think it’s helpful to keep in mind the many ways this could have gone wrong. I have to say, Berlanti made a lot of great choices here and it pays off. Melissa is, and I don’t say this lightly, perfect in the role of Kara/Supergirl. This girl can act. Plus, she is really effective in the fight scenes. Some Hollywood actresses won’t play vulnerable in fight scenes. Not the case here. When Supergirl is on the receiving end (which she is – a lot!) she really sells it and you believe she’s in peril. I really admire the producers for not shying away from putting Supergirl in harm’s way. It would have been easy to tone down the violence and peril because the hero is female, but they have committed to making the fight scenes hard hitting. A big plus is that they have real money, so we get cool wire work and big effects to enhance the fights, something our niche producers can never compete with.

I love the suit. Again, they could have wimped out here, but they went with a pleasing modern take on the traditional Supergirl suit, including the skirt. They don’t go to extreme lengths to avoid upskirt moments, so you do get to see considerable Supergirl leg!

The plot mcguffin that provides a steady stream of powered opponents for Supergirl is maybe a little convenient, but so what. We will see her seriously challenged week after week this way, and I approve of that.

All in all, the pilot is even better than I’d hoped for after seeing the trailers. Now the only things to worry about are whether they will stick with the hard hitting style of action, and whether the show can build a big enough audience to stick around for a while. I truly hope so.

Burclee
Burclee

Watched the pilot and it seems promising in terms of providing material for the superheroine fetish community. As entertainment apart from sexual thrills it will need to get way, way better than the pilot if it wishes to survive. The show was written on a comic book level, no sophisticated character development, no real art to the presentation apart from excellent special effects.

The pilot was rushed, packed full of narrative which left little time for anything other than getting the backstory out there. Cat Grant was a cliche, James Olsen was a cliche, Kara’s sister was a cliche. Kara was doing the Helen Slater “No, no…I can’t”…..with her sister doing the Peter O’ Toole “yes you can!” foolishness.

I will certainly be watching, but for the same reasons I come to this forum. Remove the fetish interest and I would pay no attention to this program at all, It appears to be aiming for young viewers with uncomplicated demands on story telling.

Chillyplasma
Chillyplasma

Just watched the pilot and it was very good, will keep watching.
The show did not try to minimise violence or attractiveness but still got the character right.
In fact that might create a problem for some of the fetish producers here as the Supergirl pilot was far better than some of the Supergirl videos I have bought (and free). It was also better than Man of Steel… but that’s not hard.

Peril wise (both villain fights, and another scene many SG peril fans will like) worked well for me. Like the old Superman movies or the JLU, the right balance was struck (IMO).

Everything is ‘leaked’ these days. I wonder if it was intentional or not. I’m waiting for the official broadcast to watch the whole thing on my big TV, but I checked out bits and pieces of the leak on the laptop. Don’t want to give away too many spoilers, but she takes some lumps, there’s some peril, but she gains confidence and kicks some butt too. The action looks good. What I saw seemed fun and a decent attempt to balance the ridiculous amount of factions interested in this character. Melissa looks cute, the costume is good and everything looks lighter (thankfully) than the original photos.

Considering all the SJW selective prudes who bully entertainment providers and think men should not get to enjoy a cute superheroine in costume while hypocritically declaring similar criticism of the ubiquitous shirtless boys and the over-the-top sex stuff they enjoy on college campuses forbidden, I am very happy they kept the skirt and presented a Supergirl males can enjoy just as women enjoy Arrow.
