Review – Supergirl Pilot Episode

Starting a new series is always exciting, especially when they’re about superheroes… Female superheroes! I could say I didn’t know much about Supergirl and that would be the biggest understatement ever. I have absolutely no clue about anything related to her or Superman. To be completely honest, I have to say I’ve never really been a massive fan of DC Comics until recently, and that’s thanks to movies, series and, yeah, OK, comics. When I was a teenager, most of my comics were Image, or similar, or Spiderman. The cool thing about them was that there were a lot of female lead characters. The bad thing about it was that they were mostly hyper-sexualised versions of Barbie dolls. Characters like Witchblade (Image), Fathom (Top Cow), and the likes were really aimed at guys, I guess. I definitely didn’t feel identified with any of them. Even Tomb Raider comics (didn’t remember the publisher, but it seems it’s Top Cow too). I also read Crimson (Image/WildStorm). What all of them had in common were the same: busty …

He’s a miracle!

I’m not one to watch the news, or discussion programs, and all that, or QI, or Top Gear, as my brother does.

Series, on the other hand, well, I could spend hours in front of my TV or laptop, watching episode after episode. At any given time, I’m following at least 3-4 different ones. At the moment, we have …

H is for holiday

I’m officially on holidays (huzzah!) I think I have been waiting for this since my holidays in January (Argentina). The last days at work, I could almost feel my skin itch and hurt! Right now, I’m at home, packing and chilling out with some great music, getting ready for tonight, when I will be flying to Ibiza (I know, I know, those of you following me on Twitter or Facebook are already fed up of hearing me speaking about this holiday, especially in the last 48 hours). Last night, we had another run with the Nike+ Run Club, and it was superhero costume themed. I was so excited preparing the costume, posting pictures, teaser style, and pretty much jumping around in excitement… The previous night I stayed up until 1am finishing my costume and helping Loida with hers… and it paid off: I ran like I had never ran before! (insert big smug smile here). I managed to stop later than usual for the first time, and then have another short stop again, and that’s …
