The pilot episode of CBS’ upcoming show Supergirl has appeared on torrent sites 6 months before its planned release, TorrentFreak reported Friday. We manged to get a short glimpse of the episode, as we uuhhmm.. watched that lengthy trailer over and over again and we weren’t really that blown away. The series, starring Glee’s Melissa Benoist as Kara Zor-El a.k.a Supergirl, is scheduled to arrive in November. But the pilot episode is available right now on torrent sites, and in full HD resolution no less.
There were some moments (in the trailer ofcourse) where we felt that excitement bubble up inside us as if we were kids again, face it there is something cool about Superman, and in this instance Supergirl use her super speed, power, x-ray vision, heat vision and fly! And yes, you get to see all of this (in the trailer ofcourse). Kara is quick to reveal her secret to a few clos friends, and before you know it she’s all suited up and ready for action, with a cape.
The episode being leaked onto torrent sites as a full 46-minute pilot with no visible digital watermarks. Pirated pre-releases are often watermarked, since they usually come from copies of videos sent by the studios for screening purposes. The pilot appeared ten days after the first trailer for the series was released.
We felt similar when watching the first episode of The Flash. The Supergirl show will have the same kind of geeky humour, yet there is a seriousness that comes in the form of more of General Zod’s friends that manage to find their way to earth. Expect the freak of the week with similar cheesy one-liners as mr.freeze does in Flash. The superhero fan in us simply cannot not watch this show. We’ll keep you posted.
