Supergirl Season 1 Episode 1: Pilot
5 second plot: Supergirl was sent after Superman (to protect him) but got stuck somewhere in space. So she arrived on earth some 20 years later. She grew up in a normal family and is now working at a media company. One day her earth-sister's plane crashes and she has to dust off her super-skills to save her.
5 second review: Oh man, wow, what a disappointment. The special effects are really bad. She has to battle alien baddies while she should have fun a bit saving humans first. The show looks and feels like the 1978 Superman movie. I thought we were past that. If it weren't for the super fun, cute and sweet Supergirl herself, I wouldn't have made it to the end of the pilot.
