Welcome back to Maid of Steel! While Scarlet Cougar is taking PTO, I’ve recruited fellow GSM Podcaster John (aka The Substitute) to join me on this installment of the podcast. Hopefully that helps explain why this podcast is coming to you so late in the week, and I do apologize for that. You may recognize John from Triplecast or from the retired pod Stuff I Learned Yesterday. We discuss Supergirl Season 3 Episode 3 “Far from the Tree” which originally aired on October 23, 2017 and featured the much anticipated guest appearance by Carl Lumbly!

Mission to Mars

We don’t have a sweet shape-shifting, 50’s-style convertible, but our conversations jetison us to far off places in this discussion. Neither John nor I really enjoyed the episode and spend some time trying to break down the story and explain what it was that was missing. There were some confusing narrative points that prevented us from connecting with one half of the story, and that ultimately overshadowed the A-Story of Kara and J’onn’s mission to mars.

Next Week

Episode 4 is entitled “Faithful”. Check out the trailer by clicking here!

Road to Justice League

Give Triplecast some love and go have a listen to their first installment of the Road to Justice League, which features a discussion about Man of Steel. Keep up with that podcast, too, because in the next few weeks we’ll be getting a discussion on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice AND Wonder Woman!
