PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve been watching and enjoying “Supergirl” since its first season over on CBS and I was really glad that it made the move to The CW Network and joined in with what was once “The Arrowverse”. There were some story points that I didn’t like but overall I always tuned in to the show and it kept me coming back week after week. I loved Ms. Benoist in the role and felt that she was a perfect Supergirl. Hopefully we shall find her appearing here and there across the other shows because that would be a waste if they didn’t do that. I will close up now as I’ve a pile of other stuff to attend to but as I do this I was wondering what you readers think about the news. Will you be tuning in now if you haven’t already or are you glad that it’s going away. Chime in down below in the comments section.
