Az from YouTube channel HeelvsBabyface reviews the latest episode of DC Universe’s Stargirl, Episode 3 “Icicle.”
He begins his review saying, “Now, the first two episodes were both fine. First episode was decent. You can see where there was a few little wibble wobbles here and there, but for the most part was decent.”
“The second part was fine apart from the fact that they completely fast-tracked the hero which is exactly what you don’t want to do because it makes the unrelatable too quick. Because if they are great at everything immediately how are they ever going to show flaws. How are we ever going to relate to that character, to that person, their every day struggles in life,” Az continues.
He goes on to reiterate what he stated in his Episode 2 review, “So I said at the end of the last video, what they really need to do is she needs to have a crushing defeat really quickly and be humbled. And they kind of did it in this episode.”
Az then adds, “So my overall feelings about episode 3, this was actually a very good episode for the most part. There was a certain segment, a couple of segments which I’m just like still completely baffled about, which I’ll get to. But for the most part this was actually a very good episode indeed.”
