Courtney Whitmore, a smart, athletic and above all else kind girl, discovers her step-father has a secret: he used to be the sidekick to a superhero. "Borrowing" the long-lost hero’s cosmic staff, she becomes the unlikely inspiration for an entirely new generation of superheroes.
Stargirl perfectly captures the goofy wonder of old-school superhero comics. The script is decent, the special effects are good, and the actors all pull their weight. Early episodes feel a bit insubstantial but that's remedied as the show progresses. So far, it's the best yet of the CW DC shows. I'm really looking forward to the rest of the season, and it's to the show's credit that I'm even bothering to keep up--usually I only binge a show after its season is complete.
