Will probably wait for it on Max. CW app has too many commercials.

Low-Key but enjoyable first episode.
Here is a list of Easter Eggs. Quite a few.

Yeah it was low key, but still good. Basically a reset for a new story after last season's story wrapped. After the extra scene from last season's finale, I am glad to see Joel McHale being brought back again.

So that final little confrontation Courtney had was with Green Lantern's daughter as the promo teased. Interesting. But you have to be a real hardcore comic fan to have caught all those little Easter Eggs as that DC article above teased.

One thing I was surprised to learn Yvette Monreal (Yolanda) is 29 years old.

Eclipso ain't no Joke. That opening was straight up Horror.

Looks like the quality didn't drop any from last season.

Interesting start.

Promising start to the season. Always nice when they drop a name like Per Degaton. I had forgotten that a version of Per Degaton appeared briefly in the first season of Legends of Tomorrow.

It's weird to see The Thinker show up in everything.

This show continues to be an absolute blast for
the JSA/All-Star Squadron fanboy in me. Loved seeing GLís ring in action and very psyched for Eclipso!

As stated above, this show as well as all DC Universe shows were available in 4K. Doom Patrol, Stargirl, Titans, and Swamp Thing. When the moved to HBO Max only 1080p was available.

I loved it when Courtney's face lit up after Pat told her another old villain has come to town. Luke Wilson was a great choice for this series.

Show still good. Production values still high.

I don't recall that gem thing he girl has. I assume they was last season and something to do with her father?

Re: DC's Stargirl (CW) -- Season 2 -- Premieres 8/10/21

This show is mixing in the horror elements with the superpower elements fairly well. I love how Cindy is becoming aware that whatever deal she made with Eclipso is starting to back-fire on her. Also, that was certainly a pretty final way to write Cindy's mother out of the show, unless her soul is trapped in the purple gem or something like that which means she might still be alive. I forget how the Eclipso story ended many years back in the comic books, but it was an interesting DC crossover and of course there was that cover that had the plastic gem on it that must have been a pain to stack books on a rack and not have the plastic gem damage the covers of other books.

Me too. And more than being an old-school fan, of all the comicbook shows out there, this one is about the only one that captures the joy of the genre. Courtney's enthusiasm is such a breath of fresh air after so many characters on other shows bending under the burden of their powers.

I've said before that this was my favorite show last year. I was afraid it wouldn't hold up this year, but 2 episodes in and it's my favorite show so far this year too.

Damn the effects on this last episode were top notch. The Shade stuff was amazing.

Love the little things like Courtney going to the House of Secrets Book Shop. Nice tense scene with the Shade.
Lea Thompson did a nice job directing the past two episodes.
Cool seeing Johnny Thunder.

Re: DC's Stargirl (CW) -- Season 2 -- Premieres 8/10/21

This show is wonderful. Speaking of The Shade, I love that he had to resort to multiple shade tendrils to try and yank the staff away from Courtney, but the staff was having none of it and refused to leave Courtney's grip. I also like that The Shade realizes he is not getting the staff and stops trying to do so. The staff seems to be much more powerful than we have seen so far on the show, because I really thought The Shade was going to obtain the staff because all Courtney had was one hand gripping the staff. Cindy is having too much fun with the Eclipso Diamond, but I can't help but feel that her actions are going to backfire spectacularly on her and it will be fun to watch when this happens.

Also, the bit with the staff advising Courtney to hit the books instead of going out for a ride in the sky was hilarious. I like that the staff wants its owner to have more brains instead of trains in her head. Another funny bit, is when she tells Yolanda in her Summer School class that it turns out if you actually read the books it is easy to know stuff, lol.

Stargirl hasn't suffered from the dreaded sophomore slump yet. The budget looks maybe a tick down in scope.

This show is great. This season so far we had Eclipso, Shade, Johnny Thunder, Dr. Midnite and Jade.

The Eclipso effects in this episode were pretty impressive. Looking forward to seeing Jade and the Thunderbolt return.

The Thunderbolt supposed to be from the 5th Dimension like Bat-Mite and Mxyzptlk, correct? But not the same kind of being?

I would go that far, but I will say the fight choreography in the school fight was among the best for any show on TV.
