Stargirl – TPToA Podcast 189

A surprisingly faithful adaptation aimed at possible the wrong audience.
Stargirl is fluffy, lightweight fun with a strange fixation on very old DC characters… right up until the child murder start.

Positives
Spectacular, inventive and exciting fight choreography.
A few really engaging and likeable characters.
There's a bunch of DC lore and in-jokes sprinkled throughout oh and a giant robot.
Negatives
A somewhat annoying lead who is a questionable role model and terrifyingly white-bread.
Some of the characters are incredibly forgettable and cookie cutter.
It has a strangely split focus, feeling both nostalgic and yet aimed at tween audiences… with murders

AWESOME

The DC streaming service started really strong out of the gate, with shows like Titans, Harley Quinn and Swamp Thing, the one-two punch follow-ups were the more assured Doom Patrol and the effervescent nostalgia-hit Stargirl. Now that the streaming service is being wound-up (and the shows are peeling off to either HBO MAX or The CW) where does a show like Stargirl fit into this new world?

Dion and Quinny may be more akin to the original J.S.A. members for this podcast, but the young-blood of Jill and Peta are bringing us kicking and screaming into the 2020’s!
