I was pleasantly surprised when I watched the preview. It looks really good: a nice combination of fun, approachability, action and a 'realistic' heroine. I think we'll be watching this in the Fall.

It is on my list. The trailer really caught me with a nice blend of action and emotion. I am hoping this will be a successful run.

Im surprised how great the production looks.  Not sure if it's for me yet, but looks promising and may strike a chord with the intended demographic.

I'm on the fence.  It looked a little bit too much like Devil Wears Prada meets Supergirl, but maybe I'm just jaded after watching the awesome more adult-themed Daredevil. =D

I'm definitely going to check it out though.

I felt the same as Shavri, with same analogy. That actress is perfect though!

I can't say the preview completely sold me, but of course I'm going to watch it...it's Supergirl.  And unless it turns out really, really bad, I'm certain I'll keep watching it, because...well...it's Supergirl.

Very pleased they greenlit this series and with as much as they were able to show in the preview, I'm pretty certain they'll have the entire pilot available at SDCC.

I'm interested, but in on ABC which has me worried. At first watch it's a bit to comedic until you get the battles between her and other foes. And why do so many people from the start know who she is? I'm going to give it a peek, I think young girls will enjoy it.

Shavri hit the nail on the head there...that just gave me a weird vibe at first blush, however, it's comic book stuff...so I'll give it a shot...hey, it could be killer, right?

I did like the whole "picking the right outfit" scenario in the trailer...that was funny.

Yeah, on either channel I'd still feel the same.

The standard network TV 24 episode season is what concerns me.  In the comics, they have 2 years to do 24 stories-- in a standard season, they have 9 months.

I'd rather get less episodes that are better quality like Hannibal.

Apparently the pilot leaked, like it happens to mostly everything these days.
