In SUPERGIRL, on CBS Mondays at 8 PM, our heroine in her alter ego of newspaper executive assistant Kara Danvers, played by Melissa Benoist, works in a pretty swanky-looking high-rise. However, Kara’s adoptive sister Alex Danvers, played by Chyler Leigh, has a much cooler workplace, the literally underground headquarters of the Department of Extranormal Operations, aka D.E.O. When CBS allows the Television Critics Association press tour to visit the SUPERGIRL sets, the huge soundstage, with faux cave walls and intricate technology stations, is thrilling to see. It may be make-believe, but it still looks pretty impressive. In the SUPERGIRL universe, […]Read On »
