When you’re looking for a new show to watch, it can be hard to choose one because there are so many to choose from. You don’t have much time in your hectic schedule to keep up with many TV shows, so when you do have some spare time, you want to choose a show that is fun and exciting and will keep you on the edge of your seat. The new series ‘Stargirl’ fits the bill. Here are three reasons you should make ‘Stargirl’ the next show you binge-watch.
The Entire First Season Is Out
When you get ready to binge a show, you want to have plenty of episodes available so that you don’t have to wait a week between them. The entire first seaon of ‘Stargirl’, a series created by Geoff Johns, was released in 202o and is now available to watch on the CW. The show was quickly renewed for a second season that is scheduled to premiere in August, and production is already underway for a third season. If you’re looking for a show with plenty of episodes out and more to come, ‘Stargirl’ is it.
The Premise Is Intriguing
‘Stargirl’ tells the story of high school student Courtney Whitmore. After accidentally discovering the Cosmic Staff of Starman in her family’s basement, Courtney realizes that her stepfather is the sole survivor of the superhero group Justice Society of America. She steps into the role of Stargirl to rebuild the team with other teenagers and stop the Injustice League of America.
The premise alone is enough to keep you on the edge of your seat while watching ‘Stargirl’, but the fact that teenage superhoes take center stage in this series turns the genre on its head and adds even more intrigue to the show. While teenagers have played major roles in many superhero shows, they are often cast as sidekicks. This show subverts that trope by making the adults the sidekicks and the kids the heroes.
As a parallel universe in the DC world, ‘Stargirl’ adds more depth to the fictional world of the DC comic books. Watching it is a great way to further your knowledge of the DC world if you are a fan, but you don’t have to know a lot about DC characters to enjoy ‘Stargirl.’
The Cast Is Talented
Because ‘Stargirl’ centers around teenagers, the majority of the show’s cast members are relatively unknown. This doesn’t mean they are any less talented. Each actor and actress who plays a role in ‘Stargirl’ has a unique ability to bring his or her character to life and make you care about the fate of the character in the DC universe. The acting is superb, and the unknown faces are joined by familiar names such as Luke Wilson to ground the cast.
Finding a good show to binge when you have some downtime can be difficult. If you like action and adventure, ‘Stargirl’ is the perfect show for you. Start watching it today so you can get caught up before the second season premieres later this year.
