Stargirl “The Justice Society” Review

Season 1 Episode 6 “Courtney makes a difficult decision after Pat confronts her about the consequences of recruiting new members to the JSA; Barbara shows up in support of Mike’s science fair; Courtney, Yolanda, Beth and Rick prepare for their first major mission.”

What I Liked

1. Icicle receives a text from Principal Bowin stating “The gym rats are at it again”. Referring to the two people who killed the coach at the beginning of the episode. Not only does this give us two new villains, but also a little more insight as to who Principal Bowin is as we see a photo of her with Icicle and Cameron.

2. Stephens identity is revealed as “The Gambler”. The new Justice Society prepare to confront him.

3. Beth and Rick join Courtney and Yolanda in suiting up. The suits look incredible!

4. “The gym rats” identities are revealed as Sportsmaster and Tigress. The team come face to face with them rather than The Gambler. Although the fight did not go in their favour, the team fought together for the first time. As Pat shows up to save the day, Sportsmaster and Tigress take off.

5. Pat is finally on board with recruiting new members for the JSA.

What I Disliked

The acting at the start of the show on the football pitch was extremely poor.

Favourite Moment

“The gym rats” identities are revealed as Sportsmaster and Tigress. The team come face to face with them rather than The Gambler. Although the fight did not go in their favour, the team fought together for the first time. As Pat shows up to save the day, Sportsmaster and Tigress take off.

Standout Character

I’m going to have to give this to our two new villains this week, Sportsmaster and Tigress. We caught a glimpse of them in the first scene of the first episode as they tried to take down Starman, and this week they returned and showed no mercy when killing the school’s coach and then trying to take down the new JSA.

Verdict

Quite a slow start to this episode, however, they more than made up for it halfway through! The fight scenes, along with new suits and new villains was just incredible!

Rating 10/10
