It seems in season 2, Kara is using her powers less and less. Except for heat vision, which she seems to be using more and more, she seem s to using be using most of het powers less and less.

Less flying, less superstrength, less x-ray vision and even, less superhearing.
Why is this happening? There's a real lack of scenes were Kara does something really phyicially impressive.
Like in season 1's How Does She Do it? , she stops a building from collapsing and stops am out of control high speed train in just one episode.

We just don't see scenes like that in season 2 anymore. Why?

Lack of budget?

I really like the show but it seems to be devolving into the same thing every week. I would like to see an episode where Kara's powers are transferred to another woman. I think that would make for a very interesting story.

Anybody else think she seems to be using her powers less and less? On a certain message board, somebody got a little angry when I asked this question.

Several folks on this site predicted that the move to the CW would come with fewer bucks available for special effects so this is expected. We also wished for and got more time with Kara in her red and blues which is not a bad trade off. Perhaps when Myx and his magic arrive we will see Kara's sister powered up hopefully in the red and blues. I can think of several plot lines for that one.

Even better would be Mon El's powers transferred to another unsuspecting girl - possibly a colleague in the office? It kind of works that way with first live wire then Siobhan. Then we'd have two Supergirl's and a powerless Mon El!

I think budgetary constraints are the main reason. A reason the show was moved to the CW network and filming changed to Vancouver was because it was so expensive. Special effects, even basic ones, cost a lot of money to do. Even shows that seem to have a lot higher budget like Jessica Jones and Luke Cage were sometimes light on the displays of superpowers.

Can't comment on the show itself though. I am waiting for the season to end, and then plan on binge watching it through Netflix along with Flash, Arrow, and others.
