Supergirl: The Complete Third Season Blu-ray Review
“Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.”
Ridding National City of Queen Rhea and her Daxamite army was a major win for Supergirl, but one that came at a significant cost, as Kara was forced to sacrifice her budding relationship with Mon-El. As season three returns with all-new supercharged adventures, Kara and team will come up against a new threat in the form of DC Worldkiller, Reign.

I think ‘Supergirl’ is a great series and probably an inspiration to girls and women. I would say the plot is mostly uncomplicated and straight to fit all ages but nevertheless it’s very entertaining.
We must remember ‘Supergirl’ is a young woman and she approaches the world as young woman (with superpowers) would do, she makes mistakes, falls in love, get her heart broken.
The third season started of with Kara be very cold alfter the loss of Mon-El. She realises that she will never be human, so she tries to shut down and burries her human parts,but son she finds her way back to an hopfull an lighter character. The worldkillers as the main villain are very dark, but at the same time seam to be a victim to who they are. That creates the possility of an uncertain outcome.
Overall I think that the third season is the best so far. The fokus on Karas relationships in this season change up the dramatic parts. I like how most of the charakters show both thier lightfull and dark sides. For an show that has a female superhero I would like to see some more women power also form Kara friends. I don’t like that they introdused so many other hero charakter witch prevents Kara from standing out. I think there should be only a few episodes with them and than they leave again, like the flash crossovers. I can’t say anything on how true the show is to the comics, but I in my oppinion that doesn’t matter since the show stands as an storry by itself.
Movie Content: 9/10
The print is presented in 1080p/ AVC MPEG-4 codec with a 1.78:1 aspect ratio. I watched the entire season on broadcast television sporting a fantastic looking print when I initially watch this show. Now that the third season has been released on Blu-ray, in full 1080p the image quality is astounding. This show does have higher tier CGI now that the show has moved to the CW as opposed to the first two seasons which had a lower budget. Colors are fantastic with reds, blues, and browns taking center stage throughout. I felt at times like there was an explosion of colors on the screen. I was very impressed by the details throughout the show. Each episode varied from day to night scenes and I will say that the lighting was well done, especially in the darker scenes.
Video Quality: 9.5/10
Audio quality is presented in DTS-HD MA lossless 5.1 mix. Like the print being close to reference quality, the audio is no slouch at all here. The soundfield takes advantage of the rears and front speakers with the special effects giving the viewer the feeling that they are right in the middle of the action. “Supergirl” is a happy medium between dialogue and action scenes. You can hear Supergirl whiz by from speaker to speaker as the panning is well done here. Dialogue is clear through the center channel, but there were a few times where it was on the softer side.

The Final Word
I’d give the third season a shot and do not listen to the naysayers, so many people have disliked this show for many different reasons. I believe that WB and CW have created a nice connected universe that really does a great job with all of these DC titles that could have really suffered in the movie universe.
Overall Rating: 8/10
