Supergirl - The Complete Second Season

In a year where both The Flash and Arrow found themselves recycling different versions of the same story (evil speedsters and archers), Supergirl took a definite step forward as the best of DC's television line-up. Sure, the exit of Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart) as a regular after the first couple of episodes left a huge hole to fill and there were some clunkers early on, but this season saw Kara (Melissa Benoist) grow considerably over the course of the year take on Cadmus, get a boyfriend (Chris Wood) and deal with his evil mother (Teri Hatcher), and make an unlikely friend in Lena Luther (Katie McGrath).

Highlights from this year include the two-part season finale, the show taking a hard stand against anti-immigration policy, the first appearance of Mr. Mxyzptlk (Peter Gadiot), exploring what's next for Superman's best friend, Kara flexing her reporting muscles and standing by her friends, the return of Livewire (Brit Morgan), the introduction of Superman (Tyler Hoechlin), and a super-team-up against Metallo.

Available on Blu-ray and DVD, the Second Season includes featuettes on the alien fight club from "Survivors," the show's Comic-Con panel, the show's aliens, Supergirl facts, and an interview with Andrew Kreisberg and Kevin Smith. Also included is commentary by Smith for the episode he directed.

[WarnerBrothers, Blu-ray $39.99 / DVD $34.96]
