Huh, it changes the URL as you scroll down, so I linked to the 'next' article below it. Well, I fixed the link in the original post after almost putting the exact same link in again.

Did Batwoman just say that a Porsche Panamera (the sedan) came stock with 1500 hp?

The Porsche 917/30 Can Am race car that destroyed the series because it was going to become to expensive to beat it had 1200hp.

She also says the car can do 302. You know. Like a funny car. Or a super car designed to literally do only that.

Someone had a note to do some research before taping and the post it note fell off.

Yeah, I'm not exactly knowledgeable about cars and even I did a double-take when she said 302. Freaking NASCAR cars don't even go that fast.

The Magnus Walker level of bonkers that Panamera would have to look like to get to that speed...

I mean, not to be one of those "they called it an AK-47 but if you look it's a something very similar this show is bullshit..." kind of guys but those numbers were so made up that the writer had to have intended to go back and research what an actual horsepower rating might be (especially if she's going to quote the stock HP or a very recognizable car) later and it just never happened.

I mean, I got the point of the scene...the character did the research that the writer didn't do so she could answer questions about a car that wasn't hers and she said "powerful" and "fast". It just so happens that because of the numbers she made up she said "Mind numbingly powerful for even a race car" and "Among the fastest road cars ever built." It is to chuckle in a way that matters only to me.

EDIT:

Did I miss the season ender of Supergirl? The sister has powers and a costume and shit, some alien chick is wrecking shop, 'Brainy' is green, someone has superspeed.

Also, no idea it's been back for four weeks.I have no idea what's going on...

Those numbers made me :eyebrow: too. My first thought was that they had somehow disguised the Batmobile, where it might have made sense for it to ridiculously outperform ordinary cars, but nope, apparently they just borrowed the sister's car.

Also:
S2E11 - "Arrive Alive"
"Ryan" (again, not counting references to Enigma): 3
"Kate": 7

Who's the main character again?

Alex's ridiculous new look and Brainy being green were last-season developments. Also apparently super-hair-growing is among Kara's powers, because she had bangs last season and is back to her old hairstyle this season even though the first episode started like thirty seconds after the end of last season.

For reference, the stock horsepower on a Panamera Turbo S is 620hp and its top speed a more modest 196mph and an ECU upgrade like she mentioned would be good for about another 70hp.

Also, they had an easy out, no drag or street racer will ever tell an opponent how much hp they're packing. You can find out at the finish line, motherfucker.

But again, it was just one silly line that happens to have hit my wheelhouse so to speak. Not really a big deal, just funny in the size of the numbers she chose.

I must have tuned out at some point. I think I'm doing that more and more with the Arrowverse shows, sort of just playing them but not paying attention that much.

"Here's some unconvincing answers! Which I obviously didn't google because if I had I would've come up with more convincing ones!"

"Well, now we totally trust you to join our secret criminal enterprise! Even though you're muttering out loud about being Batwoman with your window open and some criminals standing like ten feet away!"

Yeah, same here. It doesn't help that I'm not always sure I caught all the episodes because CW's shitty-ass app. Also the plague making some of the shows use the beginning of the new season to wrap up last season's interrupted finales is confusing matters.

"I mean, you brought a sedan from a sports car maker that's a big grand touring machine to dice it up with essentially street modded rally cars. This doesn't scream 'best I could get on short notice...'"

Duuuuuuuuude, I literally came here to complain about how dogshit the CW app is. They can't even settle on which direction the fucking seasons go. Some put the newest episode on top, some on the bottom. The one indicator that I use to have that I already saw an episode, when I play it it asks if I want to play from the beginning, that doesn't even work anymore. It's really just the worst. And that's in a field of awful. I have Hulu, HBOMax, Netflix, Disney+, and Amazon Prime and all their menus are garbage.

Hulu, for fuck's sake. Why would they autoroll another show with a recent new episode that I have been watching when you can insist that I want to watch "Call Your Mother" or rewatch "Last Man on Earth."

Wait, so...
I guess I really haven't been paying attention. Kate Kane did survive, but that chick with the cane wiped her memory and now made her think she's Black Mask's daughter? And so OG Batwoman just beat up new Batwoman and Alice I guess. Also, got taller. I don't know where Black Mask found charbroiled Kate Kane. It does open the door for two Batwomen, I guess. Or Ryan becoming some sort of Batwoman spinoff type deal.

I'm not as lost as I am with Black Lightning, I guess.

SARA LANCE: "Being an Avenger is stupid. The goal is to prevent death. I am a Preventer! You wanna join the Preventers, Sparty?"

Shots fired!

But, um... you know I love you, Sara, but you are not in the winning comic book universe here.

Also jesus christ how does the CW app suck so much? I went to seek through the episode to make sure I'd transcribed that line right, and the little preview frames had no relation to the actual position in the stream, it made me watch another set of commercials every single time I stopped, even if I only rewound a couple of seconds, and at one point it kicked me clear back to the end of the first commercial break even though I'd been somewhere in the middle of the episode and then the seek buttons stopped working entirely and I had to back out of the episode and resume it to get seek functionality (if it can be called that) back. And watch another set of commercials. I finally ended up just re-watching half the episode because it was easier and faster than trying to navigate to the right bit, and didn't require me to watch as many commercials.

Also like 90% of the time it fucks up my Roku settings when I exit it.

In other news:
S2E12 - "Initiate Self-Destruct"
Some variation on "Kate Kane": 3
Some variation on "Ryan Wilder": 3, plus her name appears on computer screens twice.

So seems like a win for the new girl in the "who is this show actually about" stakes! Except
the episode also featured actual Kate back from the dead to kick Ryan's butt.
