One decade after nearly all of the Justice Society of America (JSA) were killed in a battle against the Injustice Society of America (ISA), high school student Courtney Whitmore discovers the Cosmic Staff of Starman and, upon learning that her stepfather Pat Dugan used to be Starman’s sidekick, becomes the inspiration for a whole new generation of superheroes.
DC’s Stargirl is an action-packed, highly entertaining new show that has the potential to be a worldwide sensation. The story is split into 13 exhilarating episodes with a two-part epic season finale.
The first couple of episodes can be labelled as introductory episodes as the creators made sure to take their time to introduce us to this relatively new universe and its diverse set of characters. Each episode focused on a specific character, highlighting its multiple aspects and its place in the storyline.
The last couple of episodes were unconditionally the strongest, as we got to witness these so-called characters in action. Moreover, the story took on a more serious route, dealing with truly fascinating subjects such as abuse of power, manipulation, and the ongoing fight between good and evil…
As previously mentioned, Stargirl had a set of really diverse characters each one with an interesting side-story of its own. Brec Bassinger with her heartwarming quirkiness flawlessly portrayed the titular persona Stargirl. But, Yvette Monreal and Meg DeLacy were the true stars of the show. They both knew how to dominate the screen and captivate us with their effortless charisma and charm. Cameron Gellman and Anjelika Washington also did a really remarkable job!!
But when it comes to it, the best aspect about Stargirl is that it simply radiates coziness and heartwarming vibes. All in all, it’s a really decent show to watch, have fun and enjoy.
I highly recommend it!
