Water Cooler Podcast: Episode 47 – Fitting a ‘Supergirl’ Into a Modern World

On the latest Water Cooler Podcast, the Awards Daily TV gang tackle the tricky topic of CBS’s upcoming Supergirl series, which premieres tonight. Megan, Joey, and Clarence all discuss their initial reactions to Greg Berlanti’s take on the comic book staple and ask the question of where the character fits in a modern world. Does the series satisfactorily address the feminism issue that plagued multiple television incarnations of Wonder Woman? Does Supergirl even work in a year that has seen Charlize Theron’s Furiosa in Mad Max: Fury Road, Jennifer Lawrence wrapping up Katniss Everdeen, and even Hayley Atwell’s Peggy Carter. Plus, there will be inevitable comparisons to the camp classic 1984 variation on Supergirl.
