That's the exact opposite of what Facebook wants to happen, though. They're hoping you get sucked in by other content and end up spending more time on Facebook and/or making an account.

I hate that these days when you use a permalink to a Facebook post, the rest of the page's material still shows up below. Like, WTF, I only want the old way of seeing the post and nothing else!

I always took it to be a catch-all term for "person or thing of the same name" regardless of which came first.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 July 2017 - 10:06 PM)

So technically it could be either way and not be wrong, but it is more apt to be Kalidor's example.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 July 2017 - 10:05 PM)

one that has the same name as another; especially : one who is named after another or for whom another is named

@  Kalidor : (22 July 2017 - 09:45 PM)

I think the official meaning is that a namesake is the person or thing that is named after something else. So the USS Kalidor would be Kalidor's namesake

@  Pennpenn : (22 July 2017 - 08:30 PM)

I thought it was either?

Supergirl TV Show - Officially Renewed, Moving to The CW

On the heels of the success of Arrow and the strong buzz for its upcoming offshoot The Flash — both co-created and executive produced by Greg Berlanti — the top producer is looking to transition another popular DC superhero character to the small screen. I’ve learned that Berlanti has teamed with Ali Adler, who worked on his ABC series No Ordinary Family, for a TV series based on Supergirl. Warner Bros. TV, which is behind all DC TV series, will produce with Berlanti’s studio-based Berlanti Prods..

I hear the project, which is still in development, will be a new interpretation of the Supergirl character and her story. Adler will write the script and will executive produce with Berlanti Prods.’ Berlanti and Sarah Schechter. DC’s Geoff Johns, who has been involved in both Arrow and The Flash, is also expected to be part of the project but it is unclear at this time what his role will be. The Supergirl show doesn’t have a name yet. I hear the producers are considering several options that need to be cleared, including Super and Girl. The project is expected to be taken out in a couple of weeks and pitched to the major networks the way WBTV and DC did with their high profile Batman prequel Gotham, which landed at Fox with a big commitment. The Supergirl series had been in the works at WBTV for some time with Berlanti and Adler. Contrary to a report that was picked up by a number of outlets, Michael Green has had no involvement in the project.

The Supergirl character was created by writer Otto Binder and designed by artist Al Plastino in 1959. There had been several characters that had assumed the caped girl persona, most notably Superman’s cousin, Kara Zor-El, who shares his super powers and vulnerability to Kryptonite. There has been a push to get more female superhero characters in comic books and on the big and small screens. Marvel has a Jessica Jones series in pre-production at Netflix.

There will be four DC/WBTV series on the air this coming season, Gotham on Fox, the CW’s Arrow and The Flash on the CW and Constantine on NBC. In addition to Arrow and The Flash, Berlanti has new NBC crime dramedy The Mysteries Of Laura, and his company just sold conspiracy thriller Blindspot to NBC. Berlanti and Adler are repped by WME.

 

What do I think about this?  I say we better hope this does not become another horrible teen drama.  If it's like Smallville, I will live with that, but I will not tolerate a Supergirl show that pretends to be like Sabrina The Teenage Witch.

I haven't got around to watching Arrow yet (past the pilot) so I don't really know how well DC is doing on TV right now. But it's hard to be confident, because, y'know, DC.

Did they have to go Kryptonian? Pull an Arrow and give another sub-SuperBat character a turn. If I want to see Supergirl on TV I'll dig out my Smallville DVDs.

But best of luck to them! Unless it's dumb.

They are, but iam very hesitant to get my hopes up that the successful balancing act between the superheroics and everyday life done in Arrow (and hopefully in Flash too) can be done for Supergirl. I just have visions of the disaster that was Wonder Womans TV pilot. Or the Bionic Woman remake where all the hight tech heroics were buried in family sitcom dysfunction and angst.

Also, any Supergirl story has to have some level of Superman involvement, at least in the beginning. Which if the DC TV universe is in any way connected to their proposed movie universe, could be difficult.

If they can leearn from the success of Arrow while applying the lighter tone of The Flash, we could have the start of bringing DCs female superheroes to life.

After MOS I'd be more interested in someone picking up the WW pilot than I am in BatMOS2. It was crazy, but at least it wasn't MOS.

I think we'll get a vague reference to a second Kryptonian in the Supergirl pilot and that will be it. Or maybe -- a running gag where she claims to be Superman's cousin and nobody believes her.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

So...DC (well, technically WB) cancels Wonder Woman's series but then gears up to do a Supergirl TV series. Um DC? Maybe it's just me but there might be a reason why the general public doesn't know much about WW and doesn't give her much respect.

Good point, i just hope CW looks at how Arrow is working. Why the NBC WW show failed and keeps up their good work.

People have called Arrow "the best Batman live action TV series without Batman", so I'm wondering if this could feel like "a Superman live action TV series without Superman".

All we can do is cross our fingers and keep our expectations reasonable.

Also maruten, go watch SFDebris review of the WW pilot and you'll see exactly why that version of WW should never see the light of day.

I really hope they do a decent job with their new movie Diana. She deserves to be up there with Superman and Batman, and we deserve to live in a world where not every DC media project revolves around the same two guys again and again and again.

Arrow and the Flash are obviously a step in the right direction and I applaud that (from a distance). A Supergirl show will hopefully be a showcase for a number of female characters.

Unless removed, that pilot was actually uploaded to one of the video sites that's not Youtube. There were maybe an actor or two that might be okay with different lines and a few things they intrigued me that they used but the script sorta needed to be set on fire.

I really hope they do a decent job with their new movie Diana. She deserves to be up there with Superman and Batman, and we deserve to live in a world where not every DC media project revolves around the same two guys again and again and again.

All things considered, most media nowadays really only focuses on Batman and Superman gets stuff via obligation.

I liked it, more or less. There were certainly decisions I didn't understand behind David E Kelley's vision for the show but I think it had potential. It may have been divisive but it wasn't Snyder's Superman.

I have to disagree on that maruten.

I enjoyed Snyders MoS despite its flaws.

Kellys WW comes across a self-righteous psycho who will torture and beatdown anyone who gets in her way because she is in the right. The police are incompetant, the media adores her and believes she can do no wrong. Plus she has three seperate identities.

Probably I view the pilot charitably in part because Wonder Woman is so under-represented and I was happy to take what I could get. And while it's not the Wonder Woman series I'd make (the multiple identities in particular was an utterly baffling approach -- just WHY?!) I would certainly have tuned in for a second episode.

Henry Cavill as Superman I liked a great deal, but the movie they built around him was just not a good Superman movie. If you love Superman there are many avenues open to you that are more satisfying than Snyder.

BUT ANYWAY SUPERGIRL

Let's see an adaptation of PAD's run!

What's good about Pad's Supergirl is really what's good about all PAD's series: Good writing, strong characterization, great humor, soap opera-y twists, building arcs and evolving characters, strong geeky fun vibe.

-ZacWilliam, what's bad would be convoluted and non-iconic origin/version of the character.
