    Strange...mine for Tuesday says "Stargirl," but it's still scheduled to record. I don't know if it switched or if it's always been just Stargirl...never missed one, though.

    Here's my FiOS DVR List...and why it did not pick up last week's episode.

    DirecTV had the same issue last week, so presumably they're getting their data from the same feed that FiOS is. I posed in the Season Pass Alerts forum when I discovered it: Stargirl

    Kind of ironic that TiVo seems to be the only one getting it right... :D

    Junior may or may not be alive.
    I suppose the question is dependent on whether or not he really killed the lawyer or Dad did.

    Re: Courtney's father: my guess all along has been that Sam Curtis wasn't really an alias for Sylvester Pemberton but is a different person.

    My reasoning comes from the comics:
    Originally, Courtney became the second Star Spangled Kid because she was blaming Pat for the move from Los Angeles to Blue Valley.
    After finding out about his past much the same way as shown in the TV show, she dons her version of Sylvester's costume (including the Cosmic Converter Belt) as a way to get under his skin.

    It turns out though that's she pretty good at being a superhero and she enjoys helping people.

    My suspicion is that the producers thought her original reason for donning the mask was too petty and by having her think that Sylvester was her father, this gives her a more clearly understood and acceptable reason to become Stargirl.

    It's always been Stargirl in the Hulu Live Guide, or the iTunes store season I purchased pre buying a 4k tv and subscribing to DC for 4k HDR.

    No fighting action in todays episode. After lasts weeks episode packed all kinds of action this week was pretty much all origin story.

    The episode does end with us expecting some serious action for next week's episode though.

    For anyone who watched this week's episode, can you explain the line "Our queen has risen".

    Courtney's mom (I can never remember her name) got with the program real quick. A week ago she was telling Pat to get the f-bomb out.

    I actually felt bad for Mike. Everybody's lying or withholding information from him and he got yelled at by Pat in this episode. At some point they're going to have to expose him to Stargirl and the JSA. I hope he doesn't go postal before then.

    In between, she realized that the boss she idolized really IS a super-villain. I suspect that made her question her decisions to date...

    I am 15 minutes in on tonight's episode. What was with the weird left-handed handshake between Pat and Sam? I will have to go back to the beginning to see it again but it struck me as strange.

    Yeah, that was weird. I wondered if maybe they needed to reverse the image for composition reasons, but no...everything is still the same (i.e., the layout of the room, the shoulder the backpack is on). So it was a choice. And why they made that choice, I have no clue.

    The only reason I can think of is due to production deadlines, they didn't have time to reposition the camera, relight the set, and block the scene to do it correctly.

    And maybe they intended to flip the shot in post production and it got missed.

    One of the actors probably hurt his right hand shortly before it was shot and asked to shake with their lefts.

    Maybe that's how the cool people in Blue Valley shake hands.

    Maybe they are both Boy Scouts.
