    Yep. Although Syfy aired it at around midnight.

    Stargirl is aired on both the DCU streaming service and the following day on the CW, but edited to fit the time slot. I didn't realize Harley Quinn was also on SyFy. If they edited out the language it would only end up lasting about five minutes, and most of that would be the starting and ending credits.

    I guess it's not being censored---I had only seen the commercials for it and those are censored (at least the ones I saw were)

    Season 2 has been disappointing so far. It’s missing that special absurdity that was part of season 1.

    Maybe it’s the lack of Tudyk or maybe that there’s only 9 episodes and they have to rush, but so far after 3 episodes I’m just bored.

    Really? Doctor Tyme and Red Jack aren't absurd enough for you?

    I think you're been spending too much time following political news...you're just numb to the absurdity of it all! ;)

    Doctor Tyme was a bit absurd, but that was over real quick. I found Red Jack to be disturbing, not absurd.

    I guess my main problem with the season is that it’s just kind of spinning it’s wheels with no real goal other than to babysit Dorothy and her “imaginary” friends. Yes there is some character growth going on, but a lot of those are rehashes from last season.

    Maybe Robot Man 2.0 will be interesting, but considering the season is a third of the way over already and nothing really has happened, they better go big for the final 6 episodes.

    I've only seen the first two episodes of season 2 so far and I think it's maintaining the same level of absurdity as season 1. Instead of a talking cockroach with a God complex we have a giant tarantula telling knock knock jokes. Rita is learning how to harness her abilities, although she's still in her infancy as far as that goes. At least she's not melting down a sewer grate. Jane's still being Jane with her 64 different personalities and Cliff just likes to run around dropping the F-bomb in every sentence. The show is insane, but in a lovable sort of way.

    I had totally forgotten how season 1 ended so I was a bit lost when watching the 1st episode of season 2. I had to go back and watch the final episode of season 1 to get caught up. The best part about re-watching that episode was that it was a good recap of everything that had happened prior to that. If you've never seen the show before I'm thinking that watching the final episode up to the point where everyone starts jumping into Ezekiel would actually be a good primer for the show.
