  1. Budget is the same as last year!
  2. Another interview with Katie McGrath: Part of her character’s allure, muses McGrath, is in the unpredictability of Lena’s story. “I had no f**king clue what was going to happen! I didn’t sign up for that many episodes, so I thought I was just coming in and I’d have a little small arc and that would be it,” she says. But as she made more and more appearances, the character continually bucked her expectations: “I kept waiting for the script to come in that would be, ‘Oh, I get it. There you go. She’s Lex now.’ And it never happened.” No matter how many opportunities Lena passes up to turn on Kara, we will always be wary of that happening, but McGrath isn’t so sure that that betrayal is inevitable. “You say that she has to. Do you believe that because that’s her last name? Is this a problem that Lena’s always going to come up against? That people have pre-judged her because she’s a Luthor?” she asks. We’ve seen her brother many times and know that, like in Smallville, no matter how friendly he and Clark Kent get, Lex always was going to become evil. For Lena though, McGrath says we just don’t know. “That’s what’s compelling and exciting — to have no idea,” she says. “She is an unknown quantity. You don’t know this character because we haven’t seen her yet.” Not even she knows what Lena is capable of. “That’s what’s making me feel completely engaged with the character,” she says.
  3. I love Katie McGrath, but I couldn't disagree with her more on this. Lena not knowing despite all of Kara's slip-ups just makes her look stupid.
  4. But she did! She figured it out really early on. Near the end of season one, episode eight, she told Kara that she knew Kara was Supergirl. Throughout episode nine, she kept pushing her to admit it. Kara had to get J'onn to shapeshift into Supergirl so they could stand side by side before Cat would relent. I'm still not convinced she totally bought that scam, either.
  5. I feel like Lena knows Kara is Supergirl and is okay with it. Lillian clearly doesn't know her daughter as well as she thinks she does (she actually thought Lena wouldn't mind her double-crossing Supergirl and Mon-El and leaving them on Rhea's ship!), so I don't put much stock in her assertion that Lena will hate Kara. If Lena honestly doesn't know that Kara is Supergirl... that will be the biggest load of crap this show's ever expected me to buy. Like I said in another thread, the girl was skeptical of Rhea after one "thank the gods," and we're meant to believe that Kara's "I flew here... on, on a bus" slipped right past her? Or that she honestly believes that Kara Danvers just happened to be having coffee with Supergirl when bad guys threw Lena off a roof? Or that Kara is dating Mon-El, Supergirl's alien co-worker? The woman is a certified genius, come on.
  6. I think the renewal was a mistake. This season's finale felt very final. I don't need to see a pregnant Cece (or worse, a baby -- they always ruin comedies for me). I don't need to see Nick and Jess trying again. I will watch, though, and hope that I'll actually end up enjoying it!
  7. Holy crap, I can't believe they uncancelled it! That's awesome. And yeah, I hope they address the issues viewers had. I want to see more time-travel-related consequences and less "idiot ball" stuff (don't give them another villain who juuuust manages to avoid being shot by a trained soldier every episode). My dad watches this show (it's one of the few he regularly watches). He never reads or talks about shows online, but he was disappointed when I told him this got cancelled. He said that if it cost too much to make, he would have been fine with the team staying in each time period/location for a few episodes in a row. I wouldn't mind that either.
  8. Deadline article about it. I'm bummed, too. It wasn't the best show ever, but I enjoyed it and watched it every week instead of saving up and binging later like I do with a lot of my shows.
  9. iZombie has been renewed for a fourth season! I don't have an article link yet, but the official Facebook page announced it two minutes ago.
  10. Sweet/Vicious creator hasn't given up hope for season 2 ‘Sweet/Vicious’ Canceled by MTV but Should Live on Elsewhere (Opinion)
  11. All book talk is fine in the Palimpsest: Novel vs. Show thread and the Blessed Be: Questions from Non-Book Readers, Answers from Book Readers thread (basically, any thread tagged with the green "Book Talk" tag). A little book talk is fine in other threads if it's relevant to the discussion, as long as it's spoiler-tagged. If a mention of something from the book turns into an actual discussion of the book, please move it over to one of the book threads rather than fill a non-book thread with spoiler tags. Thank you!
  12. Ugh, Lena better not be the season three villain. I'm just not buying it, and no stupid marriage plot is going to change that.
  13. Everyone always says she's morally grey, or looks shady, but I still haven't seen it. Has she done anything actually bad, or even close to bad, yet? Even in this episode, she was working with Rhea because she wants to feed the hungry and solve climate change. I mean. The girl's a saint.
  14. She'd better already know. She knew Rhea was an alien after one "thank the gods," yet she didn't notice Kara's, "I flew here... on, on a bus" and wasn't at all suspicious when Supergirl was conveniently "having coffee" with Kara Danvers while Kara and Lena were on the phone, overheard Lena being attacked, and managed to get there just in time to catch her mid-air? They want me to believe this woman is a genius, right?
  15. Yeah, the people who had no intention of paying for Netflix still aren't going to pay for Netflix, and others may watch the 10 leaked episodes and then get Netflix to watch the final three. Netflix costs the same amount per month whether you watch three episodes of a series or 13, so I doubt they're losing much here.
