There are a lot of great television shows today and no shortage of variety. Everything from horror shows to documentaries to historical fiction is available at the click of a button. With so much out there, it can be difficult to decide what to watch.

That said, however, there’s definitely one new show that you will want to check out. Stargirl is part of the DC (Detective Comics) universe. DC already has a solid reputation for producing high-quality superhero entertainment, so you can rest assured you will not be disappointed. 

1. It’s Action-Packed

Stargirl, executive-produced by Geoff Johns, has all sorts of edge-of-the-seat action sequences. There are those that exist purely within the realm of physics, meaning they have the potential to occur in real life (though not likely), and those that exist solely within the realm of imagination and special effects. Both types of action are tons of fun to watch and both serve a purpose. 

2. Interesting Backstory

Every superhero’s origin is unique but Stargirl’s is perhaps more so than others. She is a  teenager and a high school student in the show, not someone you would expect to be a superhero. Her youth adds an interesting aspect to the show as she contends with high school drama while balancing her superhero duties. Also, without revealing any spoilers, Stargirl also obtained her abilities in a unique way, not through birth or some freak accident, but through  familial ties. 

3. Good Morals and Role Modeling

Even though Stargirl is a superhero, she shows the viewer how they might approach their everyday problems in healthy, more balanced ways. Another important part of this show is the fact that Stargirl is not perfect; she messes up and makes mistakes. The moral here is that we ourselves need to see that the people we look up to, regardless of whether or not they are literally superheroes, are human just like us. This has genuine application in our lives because it encourages us to find someone to look up to, someone who is setting a good example, whose way of life is achievable and realistic.

The morals and examples that we see in these role models can impact us even when we don’t realize it. 

Stargirl is a fun and entertaining new show that can be enjoyed by the whole family. No matter what type of television you enjoy, you will certainly be hooked by Stargirl. And if you’re already a fan of superhero shows, you’re in luck because you’ve got another great show to watch.
