The Big Debate: Superman in CW's Supergirl -- A Good Thing?

Written by R5

"Clinton vs. Trump was just the warm up... Now here's the main event..."

Of course the blogoshpere and twittersphere were quick to wade in. Some hated the casting, others questioned whether Supergirl was being overshadowed by her more famous (and ratings friendly) cousin.

Other voices, however, were more welcoming. Indeed some early reviewers of the season opener have even suggested that the episode might make a good back-door pilot for a full blown CW Superman show!

We thought it might be a good idea to liven up the weekend by inviting SWM members to an open debate.

So... on Sunday, 2nd October, we're going to expand the usual limit on the IM chat (bottom right corner of the site) to allow site visitors to drop in to what we hope will be an ongoing and lively group discussion throughout the day.  Make sure to drop by the site on Sunday, and when you do, don't forget to check out the chat feature to see what's happening.

To join, simply visit the site while logged in and one of the mods will invite you to the group chat once they see your avatar in the chat window.  If you don't get an invite after a while, message one of the mods to give them a prod.

A transcript of the full discussion will be made available soon after, so members can revisit the parts they contributed to, and read the bits they were absent for.

See you there...
