Old and New Combine in DC's Stargirl


Superhero movies, shows, and comic books are some of the best forms of escapist entertainment. You can count on thrilling plot twists, impressive graphics, and shocking superpowers. If you've watched all the latest movies, turn to the small screen for your next superhero fix: DC's Stargirl.

Your New Favorite Superhero

At the beginning of Stargirl, which is executive produced by Geoff Johns, Courtney Whitmore seems an unlikely choice for a superhero. Her mom, Barbara, has just married Pat Dugan, and the parents have decided to move the family, which includes Pat's son Mike, to Blue Valley. Now, Courtney must grapple with the pain of moving and starting a new school in the middle of the holiday season. She doesn't get along well with Pat or Mike, although Pat tries to connect with her by sharing memories of moving as a teenager. At school, Courtney has a terrible first day, eating with the least cool kids and earning detention.

Despite this difficult start, Courtney's life is about to change forever. In the middle of all her frustration, she discovers Starman's Cosmic Staff. The superhero gave this to his sidekick Stripesy 10 years ago, just before Starman's death. Because this handoff occurred just as the Injustice Society of America wiped out most of the Justice Society of America, Stripesy, also known as Pat Dugan, has yet to fulfill his friend's wishes. Still, the staff responds to Courtney's commands, and as she continues to grapple with her relationship with her stepfather, it seems as if her destiny is to reunite the JSA.

Emerging and seasoned actors and actresses combine to create an unforgettable cast:

Now that you've got the backstory and cast in mind, it's time to dive into Stargirl. The first season, which debuted in May 2020, has 13 episodes, all of which are on The CW as well as YouTube, Google Play, HBO Max, and Vudu. Don't take too long, though; the second season is set to come out in summer 2021.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although

Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would
