This show is so incredibly different than any of the other DCW shows, it’s stunning.  Now I’m really looking forward to the HBO Max DC slate.

I've been streaming on Wednesdays -- because I"m never inside in the Summer before 9. But this is the best live action DC TV show since maybe the first season of Wonder Woman. And the reason why is that it honors the source material -- and doesn't try to create something that's DC in name only.

I credit Geoff Johns for that.

Stargirl renewed for season 2 and simultaneously removed from the DC Universe service.  I’d say it’s over for them.  Another casualty of HBO Max I assume.

I've been watching Stargirl because I have the DC service.  I'll probably stop when it moves over.  It's been enjoyable, but between the limitations of live action and low budget it's not especially yanking my crank.  Hopefully they keep the DC service as a comic-only option.

I think it’s well above the rest of the DC CW fare.  I think it’s done well enough that they can sell advertising around it.  I’m thinking it actually becomes the center point of “Arrowverse”.

I"m actually a bit bummed that it's stuck on CW, but obviously DCU will be exiting first run TV series. I would guess it's a matter of time before Titans is moved elsewhere.

But I agree that Stargirl is making the other Arrowverse shows look like dog doo. I don't know if they'll be able to maintain quality after the jump, but I hope.

I think everyone is expecting Jade to show up, but some fans think she may already be on the show. Cindy's best friend is named Jenn Williams -- and she ever wears a locket that features on of Jade's logos (the one similar to Atom's). That would be the cheap way out of avoiding the green skin -- because Jen Williams would probably just wear a ring. And that would also mean less chance of Obsidian. I guess I need to be reminded that despite some of the cast -- this is not Infinity Inc. or even JSA.

That said -- love the Shiv 2-parter. The actress playing Cindy/Shiv is  rock.gif. Can't wait for the Brainwave, Jr. episode!

I'm loving the Injustice Society -- only wish the Wizard hasn't been killed off. I hope they can keep them around for season 2 somehow.

Another great ep.  This show is so tonally different from the other CW fare it’s almost astounding.  I was a little disappointed with the Arrow like fight scene.   slapfight.gif

Clearly Henry Jr. isn’t dead.  Just an illusion created by Henry Sr.  Next week, Shining Knight!

The clearly a stunt-woman in a wig was a little obvious.  I do appreciate that Amy Smart's character has some agency now.  Her being clueless was a waste of a good actress.  And is it just me or is the actor that plays the boy look like a forty year old man's head on a boy's body?

Definitely agree about Smart.  Great actress and still hot.

I think Stripsey's son has a similarity to Luke Wilson -- probably helped him ace the role.

I didn't think Henry was dead, dead, but apparently the show wants us to believe he's dead -- as the actor has been stating that this is the end of his arc as far as he knows. It just seems obvious that he'll show up again on the bad side -- which would be an okay, if obvious means of adding drama.

I'm also glad that Courtney's mom was let in on the secret -- it was a bit too shady with Stripesy knowing her daughter is risking her life -- and not sharing the info with her.

I'm thinking the finale will be the new JSA against Solomon Grundy.
