Lex Luthor fixes Supergirl
31 August 2019 | by dferrisdrmerSee all my reviews

Jon Cryer as Lex Luthor is just what the Supergirl series needed. The first half of the season is filled with political commentary that was really getting old. I got to the end of this episode and thought "Now, we're talking!" I can only imagine how much better the rest of the season will be.b
