Whether you’re going to watch it on DC Universe or The CW, make sure you start watching Stargirl right now. Here are five reasons it’s so great.

Stargirl has had its debut on both DC Universe and The CW. Whichever way you choose to watch it, this is a show that you need to check out right away. Whatever you thought of the trailer, the pilot episode will blow you away.

More from CW

I have two young daughters and immediately thought of them when I saw the trailer. It’s one of those shows that looks fun and cute, something for the family to watch. That’s certainly what it is, but it’s not cringe-worthy for the adults. There’s humor that only the adults will understand and adult roles that you can connect to.

My daughters already want more, and they’re not impressed that they have to wait weekly. This is without knowing anything about Stargirl like they’ve seen Supergirl, The Flash, and so many others through comics and other movies. So, the pilot is certainly worth checking out. Here are my five reasons to watch.

5. It’s a fun, light-hearted show

Right now, the last thing we need is a lot of heavy content. While I appreciate shows that are willing to offer that content—OutlanderThe Terror: Infamy, and Penny Dreadful: City of Angels all come to mind immediately—there are times that you just want something fun to watch.

That’s exactly what you get with Stargirl. It’s light-hearted. It’s fun. Sure, there are some more serious storylines there. Some of those storylines are going to be easy to guess if you’ve seen enough of these superhero shows or you’ve read the comics. But this is a series that is made for entertainment.

There are going to be lessons along the way. My four-year-old very quickly told the bullies off for picking on a girl. They know it’s “not nice.” But we don’t get bogged down with that and just get a show that is fun.
