Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray™ I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.

SUPERGIRL: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON including all 20 episodes from Season 1 plus enhanced content including deleted scenes and gag reel will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on August 9, 2016!

Born on the doomed planet Krypton, Kara Zor-El escaped at the same time as her cousin, Superman, but didn’t arrive on Earth until years later after being lost in the Phantom Zone. Raised by her adopted family, the Danvers, Kara grew up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex, and learned to hide the phenomenal powers she shares with her famous cousin.

Years later, at age 24, and now living in National City while working as an assistant for Catco Worldwide Media mogul Cat Grant, Kara has spent so many years trying to fit in that she forgot to ever stand out. All that changes when she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and become the hero she was always destined to be. With the help of Daily Planet photographer James Olsen, her bioengineer sister Alex, and the research of the super-secret, off-the-grid Department of Extra-Normal Operations (DEO), who are tasked with keeping the Earth safe from aliens, Kara takes to the skies to protect her world. (TBC)

Supergirl stars Melissa Benoist (Glee), Chyler Leigh (Grey’s Anatomy), Mehcad Brooks (About Last Night) and Jeremy Jordan (Smash), with David Harewood (Homeland)and Calista Flockhart (Brothers and Sisters).  Season One guest stars include Dean Cain, Peter Facinelli, Jenna Dewan Tatum, Laura Benanti and Helen Slater. Based on the characters from DC Comics, Supergirl is produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, Ali Adler and Sarah Schechter.

Our Review:

Supergirl is a fabulous series! She is Superman's cousin so you know she is going to have all of the same cool powers! There are a lot of super hero shows on TV with male leads. It is so awesome to see a female lead super hero. Melissa Benoist is the perfect fit for this roll! She is so likable as a normal girl Kara and then she comes out as Supergirl and saves the day. I like the romance in this series, there is plenty of action too.

We really enjoyed seeing the different DC Comic book characters that show up in this series. My hubby and I couldn't get enough of this show on TV and now we can have the complete first season on Blu-ray to watch it all over again. There are 20 episodes on three discs.  

There are also tons of special features that you won't want to miss. 
  • Lots of deleted scenes.
  • Supergirl Comic-Con Panel- We liked listening to all of the actors and directors talk about the show 
  • The Man from Mars- which is J'onn J'onzz from DC Comics
  • A World Left Behind- Talks about the planet Krypton
  • Gag Reel- I love watching Gag Reels, it's so funny to see the actors when they mess up their lines
