If you’re like me and are a part of running a relatively successful business (any sort, not just limited to café work!), you’d definitely would agree with me that any free time one would have at the end of the day (any time remaining after working, eating, sleeping, doing admin work at home!) is considered luxury. Maybe it’s 1-2 hours a week. Or maybe it’s a whole entire day. Whatever the case may be, any time left over is probably reserved for yourself and is probably spent curling up in bed, or on the couch, binging through your saved TV shows on Netflix. But what if you’re the adventuring kind. What if you’re the person who gets a rush from adrenaline activities, like camping in the woods or rock-climbing or skiing or snowboarding or abseiling or canoeing or fishing in the middle of the ocean or competing on Ninja Warrior? Well never fear guys, because if you’re time poor and can’t physically do any of these activities then I reckon the next best thing to do is to watch the latest season of Supergirl. Because in Kara Danvers’ spare time from working as a reporter, she definitely undertakes a hefty adrenaline activity- fighting crime across National City as Supergirl!

After reading the recap of Season 1-3 of Supergirl that I recently posted, and from each of the 65 episodes, would you blame Kara Danvers if she felt a bit weary and out of sorts? After all, she’s been betrayed by her aunt and uncle, lost said aunt (because Alex killed her!), lost Mon-El twice (once to time travel, and twice to time travel as well- this time more permanent!), lost her friend Winn (a conscious decision to travel to the future!), and is currently walking on thin ice with her friend Lena Luthor (whom distrusts Supergirl more and more, and is still none the wiser to Kara and the Super being one and the same!). She hasn’t been backed up by Superman in any of her fights, and her last nemesis actually turned out to be a friend with a split personality, who left with her daughter for a fresh start. Does that sum up all of where Kara is at in the beginning of Season 4? Come join me for a bit as I discuss my initial thoughts of the season.

When you were younger, what was your preferred occupation? Was it a farmer, an actor, a musician, a fireman, a policeman, an astronaut, a writer, a chef, a biophysicist? Or was it something more outlandish, like being King or the President? What if you found yourself as a superhero, fighting alien life form and protecting the city, the country and the world from anything that could cause it harm? Well if you want to see how that look like, look no further than Supergirl– just started its fourth season, and one of the many superhero TV shows in the DC Arrowverse on the CW. While I plan to later review the 4th season premiere episode (before episode 2 airs tomorrow!), let me first quickly recap seasons 1-3, so that those of you who aren’t caught up with the series, and those of you who would like to, know what’s going on (and I’ll try not to post many spoilers, but it has been a few years since the show started, so I’m sure most of you already know the things I’m talking about!)

Top 10 ___: Top Ten Superhero Characters

2016 is quite the year if you are a fan of superhero drama TV shows and movies. In addition to the new Batman V. Superman movie releasing this year, you have the TV world thriving with shows where its central character is a superhero of some sort. Marvel’s Agents of Shield is a direct tie-in with the many Marvel Cinematic Universe movies releasing every so often. Not to mention their spinoff Agent Carter. Then let’s not forget the DC Universe. Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl and now Legends of Tomorrow. So in honour of all things superhero, here’s my favourite 10 superhero characters (some have super powers, others don’t)- mind you, ask me in a year and I reckon half of these 10 will be different.
