TV Review: Supergirl S1E18 Worlds Finest

Melissa Benoist Supergirl 1The Flash arrives in National City from an alternate universe. He teams up with Supergirl to battle the villains Livewire and Silver Banshee, in exchange for Supergirl’s help finding him a way to return home.

CBSSupergirl gets a friend in the Flash as the hero from The CW crosses channels and Earth’s to join Kara for a team-up episode that has them taking on Livewire and Silver Banshee and having a great time while doing so.

The last couple of episodes folks have been untrusting of Supergirl, but this episode puts that at the center and has the city make a decision as to where she stands, so there’s a solid use of that storyline.

Before I get to the excellent, I have to ask, is Livewire’s music the same as Electro from The Amazing Spider-Man!?

But, what’s really fun is Grant Gustin and Melissa Benoist working together after a rather short stint on Glee together. The two have fantastic chemistry and what’s truly amazing is that they bring back the fun to a series that has missed it a bit for a few episodes. There’s such an energy in this episode it’s kind of hard to not smile and giggle at the jokes and enthusiasm of its two leads. The fun explodes off the screen and Benoist is back to her adorkable fun self.

There’s the plot as well having to do with Kara and James, which I will say I am not a fan of the two. There’s something storywise that just doesn’t work for me at all.

But, the episode is beyond fantastic nailing things in every way possible and creating a fun enjoyable episode that’s fun in every way. The title of the episode is “Worlds Finest” and it might have been the show’s finest yet
