Geeks Meet Glee- Supergirl-Flash Crosssover

supergirl and david

Mon El (Chris Wood) and J’onn J’onzz (David Harewood) are carrying an unconscious Kara /Supergirl (Melissa Benoit)  this is how the crossover episode started

Take a time honored device like time travel and add music to it, then add superheroes and you have the latest episode that crosses over the two CW superheroes. The cross over is not a new idea, it was actually utilized back in the fifties when other characters would work with the Ricardos of “I Love Lucy. The most famous examples of cross overs would be either when Norman Lear or the late Gary Marshall would use the device to crossover to spinoffs like “Happy Days” “Laverne and Shirley” and “Mork and Mindy” Most recently, ABC ‘s prime time diva Shonda Rhimes had crossed over her two shows “Private Practice” and flagship “Grey’s Anatomy.” Characters on the two shows would do guest appearances on either show. When first seeing the opening club scenes, I moaned and thought another flashback to the past where the hero and heroine become singers in a nightclub. There I saw remnants of the “Castle” episode “Blue Butterfly” or the famous episode of “Moonlighting’ called “The Dream Sequence Always Rings Twice” .

Happily I was surprised. Traditionally , musical episodes are usually panned by the tv critics but loved by the fans. Memories of “Cop Rock” haunt people . I don’t think there is not one fan who doesn’t have the entire score of “The Song Beneath the Song” on their phone . If this is the case, then why wasn’t Chyler Leigh included in the episode? She was glorious in the “Grey’s ” musical episode. This episode was obviously a vehicle for Melissa Benoit and Darren Criss. Instead of a CW superhero episode, I thought i was watching a revival of the late great “Glee”. After all, Melissa Benoit was the female lead after diva Rachel left. Darren Criss was the gay Prince Charming Blaine to Chris Colfer’s Kurt

blaine and melissa benoit

glee reunion

Add another former Gleek in the form of “Flash” star , Grant Gustin . Remember Blaine was originally a Warbler as well. As we begin the episode, both Kara and Barry  are having relationship problems. Barry has proposed to his fiance and then took it back to save her and Kara has been having potential in law problems and found out that Mon El had been lying to her about who he was. Surprise , the Music Meister appears and then Melissa ends up in the world of the “Flash.” Fresh from his adventure with “Hot Alien girl” Winn comes into the dream world as well. It turns out that they are not in a dream, but in their heads. Melissa reuses her pipes as she sings the classic “Moon River.” in this fictional nighclub. It turns out that both “Flash” and “Kara” both were raised watching movie musicals in their homes. Meister tells them that they have to finish the musical by singing and dancing before they can leap back home. Oh and another little wrinkle , neither of them have their super  powers.

There are thugs and hoods, surprisingly one of the thugs is Broadway vet , Victor Garber . He and his partner Jesse L Martin are two gay daddies of the female heroine in the musical. Coincidentally , she is also the former fiance of “Flash”. The situation mirrors his own and the idea of two gay daddies once again goes back to “Glee” (Rachel had two gay daddys) The musical numbers are lively and rival any Broadway show. The other highlight of the show was the Flash Supergirl duet , complete with tap . “Let’s Be Superfriends” is a play of words on the cartoon tv show of the same name. The two work well together and finally realize that they both need to trust their significant others and that the only thing that matters is love. At that point, they return to their own worlds. Barry proposes again and Iris accepts . Cara decides to give Mon El another chance. At that point, MM jumps and says that he has another couple that need him. That could be so many couples (. Hey Music Meister , would you mind stopping by the White House. I know a couple in Washington that needs your help.)

Let’s Hear It for TV’s Career Gals

mtm-hat-toss

Today one of television’s pioneers passed into immortality, Mary Tyler Moore. I had done a few years ago a tribute for her birthday, so I decided to think about what she has meant to me and what contribution she has given to television and to women themselves. Mary was one of the very first independent career women. She had played a loving housewife in “The Dick Van Dyke Show” as Laura Petrie and made a large leap for women at that time as well. She was the first female television character who wore pants on screen. Those tight capri pants were all hers.

capri-pants

Mary Richards was a true pioneer. Prior to her there was no women on television that were not mothers or housewifes. Marlo Thomas as Ann Marie was also one of those pioneer gals because she would move into New York to make it as an actress. She also took a bunch of crazy jobs while she struggled like most actresses do. Unfortunately for us, the last we ever saw of her was that Donald proposed and she accepted. We never got to see if Ann turned him down for Hollywood or gave it all up for a home in Tarrytown.

ann-marie-that-girl

Of course, Nichelle Nichols was a pioneer carrying two banners. She was the first African American woman who had a lead on a major network television show that wasn’t a maid or domestic. She also beat those “Lost in Space” chicks by one year. Many a middle aged man’s fantasies began with Lt Uhura on “Star Trek”

lt-uhura

Mary had a bff who was another career gal. It was her friend, Rhoda. Rhoda was artistic and a fun gal. She was also every woman because she griped about her weight next to a perfect Mary. She made us realize for the first time that not every woman was perfect. Her pride and joy was her window displays and we loved her hair wraps and bohemian looks.

rhoda-morgernstern

 The next woman to try to make it as a career woman was Loretta Swit of M*A*S*H* . Her Margaret Houlighan started out as bitchy “Hot Lips” Houlighan but matured with the help of her nurses to become the compassionate Army Major who had managed to make the Army a career . Her nursing skills helped her to attain the rank of Major in the Army and in the forties and fifties, that was indeed a rare thing.

They weren’t secretaries , or waitresses , or shop girls, they were just two plain old bottle cappers from Milwaukee . Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams were the two girls who liked to vo-de-do and just have fun in the late fifties,” Laverne and Shirley “

laverne-and-shirley

Linda Lavin was a divorced mother who took her son and headed for Hollywood with her talent. She drove from New Jersey to Phoneix where her car died and she decided to settle down. Her whole life was the diner where she worked on “Alice.” The show also ushered in the feistiest female on tv to date and that was her best friend “Flo” played by Polly Holiday. She would think nothing at all to yell at their boss , Mel to “Kiss my grits.”(I got a lot of abuse in junior high because my name is Melanie)

 The eighties were the era of the nighttime soaps and the first female villains. It was an era of big shoulders and big broads. Jane Wyman carried the banner as one of the bad girls of this era as Angela Channing on “Falcon Crest” . Angela was a vintner in the Napa Valley who would do anything to save her family and her wine. I mean anything.She also cemented her place in history by being the ex wife of President Ronald Reagan

angela-channing

Cybill Shepherd was the ultimate career gal as model turned detective Madeline “Maddie” Hayes on “Moonlighting.” Her partner, David traded barbs and had smart conversations. Ultimately he won her over, but he could never break her spirit. She was still the strong , career woman with the detective agency , even when she was with him.

moonlighting

Linda Bloodworth Thompson was a pioneer herself. She had first made her mark in television with an award winning M*A*S*H*script  called “The Nurses.” She also created an early tv series that was a spoof of the era of “Dallas” called “Filthy Rich” Two of the female stars of the show would bring Thompson fame for her story of four smart career women and forever broke the stereotype of dumb Southern women with the classic “Designing Women.” Here is the late Dixie Carter, Delta Burke, Jean Smart, and the secretary of the real “Ghostbusters.” Annie Potts.

designing-women

Diane English broke more female ground as she created the ball busting, alcoholic, Murphy Brown.” Murphy Brown” as played by Candice Bergen,  was a serious journalist who worked on a 60 minutes type show called “FYI” . She was a pioneer in her field in the same way as Barbara Walters. Murphy was also the first working woman mother on television and took a lot of flack for it since she had no desire to get married when she had her baby. Murphy also had a special guest on her pilot show that viewers would recognize as a young Tony Goldwyn from “Scandal”

“FRIENDS” brought three girls together as they dealt with careers and men. The actresses themselves made their way into pop culture and exploded along with the male actors of the show into superstardom . The sexy sextet were the creation of another female writer Marta Kaufman. The break out star of the show was Jennifer Aniston and her hair do the Rachel was the do everyone wanted. Rachel was a career gal who started out as a waitress and ended up being hired by Louis Vuitton and moving to Paris . She never made it because she chose Love over career and got off the plane.

rachel-friends

 Another career gal was Jewish interior decorator , Grace Adler on “Will and Grace” . Debra Messing also was the first fag “hag” or “fruit fly” on television. Grace had decided that if she couldn’t get a man , she would settle into life with her gay best friend.

grace-decorates-will-boss-office

“ER” was another show that was busting through all sorts of stereotypes. One of the biggest was when one of the actresses had made a name for herself as a director as well. Linda Gray had directed on “Dallas” but was dismissed shortly after.Laura Innes continues to direct as well today on shows such as “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip” , “The West Wing” and “Scandal” Her character , Dr Kerry Weaver also was a woman who was crippled and also the head of the ER

laura-innes-director

 Shonda Rhimes was the next power broker and was the first woman to have her shows dominate an entire night of prime time television. Her Shondaland had a wealth of powerful and strong women in all of her series. The first show was “Grey’s Anatomy” which was the story of one Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) whose mother was the first woman surgeon and pioneer that she could never feel like she would ever be as good as her. Her best friend was also a rock star in the OR Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh) . Their teacher was another powerful woman who would be another woman director on the show (Chandra Wilson) The surgeons worked and loved in the hospital where on call rooms became passion pits .

Kerry Washington is Olivia Pope and has won acclaim for her portrayal as well.

Viola Davis had made her mark as a movie star. She as of this date is the first African American woman with three Oscar nominations. She also received a star on the Walk of Fame. But the role that has launched her into the tv stratosphere is law professor Analise Keating on another one of Shonda’s shows “How to Get Away with Murder” .

“Supergirl” Writer Has Hollywood Connections

Family Equality Council's Annual Los Angeles Awards Dinner

“Supergirl” is the perfect example of female empowerment. I have to confess I am not a geek, but I love this show. Kara, Alex , and even the superficial Kat demonstrate that women can be strong and that is an important message in this election year. It would only figure that one of the writers, Anna Musky Goldwyn be all about female empowerment as well. She is one of the author’s of tomorrow night’s episode “Cross fire.” Anna is a fitness enthusiast and has her own blog, she participates in marathons, and she has quite a Hollywood legacy. Her sister , Tess is studying drama at Northwestern . Her aunts and uncles are the children of the late producer Samuel Goldwyn Jr as well as her father.Her Uncle John was the producer of the gory television show ,”Dexter.”  Who is Anna’s daddy? Turn on the television, pick up a magazine cover and see his face, or just look for him on social media campaigning for Hillary Clinton. Anna is the daughter of Tony Goldwyn, the romantic leading man to Kerry Washington on the ABC hit , “Scandal.” It doesn’t stop there. Anna ‘s mother is art director  , Jane Musky , who is most known for her work on the movies “Hitch” and “Ghost.”  Anna’s grandmother was the actress Jennifer Howard , who was the daughter of Sidney Howard , known for his work on the legendary  movie, “Gone With the Wind.” Anna’s great grandfather was the Hollywood mogul and founder of MGM studios, Samuel Goldwyn. So as you can see, Anna is firmly planted in show business.It’s in her blood.

samuel-goldwyn-jr-and-sr

Here is a picture of Samuel Jr. and Samuel Sr. They are Anna’s grandfather and great grandfather

But Anna has been doing another job this year, she has been helping to get Hillary Clinton elected President. She knew how important it was to help get this woman in the White House. She hadn’t really had that much exposure to politics  and was hoping the trip to Iowa with her father would be worth it. . She was glad she came. Here she discusses why she decided to help Hillary. “One night , some Hillary supporters welcomed us to into their home . In Iowa it is very common to have house parties to talk about issues and give people the information they need. I stood patiently as I watched my dad give his short speech on why he so fervently supports Hillary. Then one of the hosts turned to me and asked me to speak about why I support Hillary. I wasn’t expecting this.”  She continues by saying that she was scared that the country I will raise my future family in will not be the country she had envisioned. There is conflict that is within our country and outside its borders and she wants someone averting that crisis that I can trust. “That someone is Hillary.” she stated. She has been championing the cause ever since that fateful trip to Iowa. She will end this journey when the Clinton team meets in New York on Tuesday. Hillary will be there with her family, as well as Anna’s family, including her father’s castmates.

Here is Anna helping Hillary in Nashville with her father.

Neither Anna nor her sister Tess are comfortable with her famous father’s sex scenes. As the philandering President of “Scandal”, their father has been party to some of the dirtiest scenes on network television. Often his character appears in scenes shirtless and Anna says that she would give him a hard time and text things like “Ewwww disgusting ” when he would be bedding the fair Olivia Pope. She has always thought of herself as normal ,rather than being surrounded by Hollywood’s elite. This can be difficult when your family is constantly in the spotlight. This is a trait that she shares with her father. Despite being the grandson of Samuel Goldwyn Sr., he was sheltered by his parents from the Hollywood life. Health and fitness are  very important to Anna, she is actually a yoga instructor in Hollywood. Places in her classes are always in demand, especially when Dad decides to sit in  one of her classes. She loves the water and California is the perfect place for jogging and exercising. Another one of her causes is gay rights. She has led spinning classes for the Trevor Project . Her baby is her fur baby , Mika. She can always find a baby sitter for Mika.Mika is also an awesome running buddy.

Mika makes an awesome training buddy for Anna when she trains for triathalons. Nutrition is very important to Anna as well. That explains her great body. Who is Anna’s favorite baby sitter for Mika? Dad !

This UCLA graduate is proud of her alma mater and the work she has done on “Supergirl.” On Twitter she said , ” So proud of what we’ve done so far and can’t wait for the world to see.” Neither can we Anna. We will also be watching and waiting to see if all the work that Anna and her father have done will have paid off. “Supergirl” airs on the CW on Monday nights.
