I am officially done with Legends of Tomorrow, BTW.

I haven't even started yet - all episodes are on the DVR.  Is it that bad?

Bad might be too strong a word, and there are definitely good things about it.

I just see it as a gimmick show stocked with B-list characters which has a limited impact on the Arrow/Flash world.  And I just don't have time for it.

Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

I like it.  It's not something that blows you away.  It's a fun show.  I'd like to give them a few seasons to see it grow myself.

That's it. It's a fun show, some cool effects and not too much 'deep'  drama. Plus it has timetravel....

Then you will probably like the show more than I do.  He's fairly prominent in the episodes I've seen.

This. When it comes time to watch something from the DVR, there just always seems to be something more appealing available.

Anyone else catch the new episode of Gotham? I'm intrigued by Hugo Stange much more Mr. Freeze. This has been a good show but I still don't feel like they've hit their stride yet.

Thought it was a great first episode afte the break! Loved how they portrayed Victor Fries with his background, very well done. Loved Hugo Strange as well. Not so hot on the Butch and whatshername stuff, and Gordon was a bit over the top as well. On the other hand, the Ed Nygma/Pinguin stuff put a smile on my face.

So, we're roughly a week behind the US with Arrow/Flash/etc., but I swear The Flash just seems to be making less and less sense. Barry giving Zoom his speed was, like, the dumbest thing he's ever done.

I watched S1 of The Flash fairly recently since it was on Netflix, but decided to wait with S2 until all of it was out. I liked S1 but everything I've heard about S2 makes it sound much worse quality-wise. I'll still check it out though.

I'm with ya there... WTF?  Still a couple episodes behind, so I don't know how this all pans out.

So I started watching Flash the other day. 3 or so episodes in. No desire to watch Arrow or Gotham.

This show isn't bad. I dig the main cast, but the villains of the week (thus far) are really laughably bad.

Although I am very curious what they're going to do with the leader of the Flash's team who has ties to the future and is clearly planning something. Good job setting up intrigue with him.

I have no idea if his character is in the comics, since I don't read DC, so it's nice seeing things unfold without knowing ahead of time.

The Flash is sometimes painfully bad in the details of the storylines, and the sub-plots.  Some of the villains are really good, and some are lol-worthy.  IOverall, the main arc is great, and Tom Cavanagh is fantastic.  There are a lot of unexpected twists.  It's quite a bi-polar TV show... but I'm still watching it.  I too know nothing of the DC universe, so it's nice to not have things 'known' in advance.

I like The Flash a lot more than Arrow, and we won't even talk about Legends of Tomorrow, on which I gave up after 3 episodes.

The Flash and Supergirl both have a sense of fun, with the characters actually enjoying having super powers.  Which is something I wish the DC movies would have more of.

Well, I mean for Flash.  I don't watch Supergirl (except the episode which featured the Flash lol).

Haven't seen the other DC shows, but you're right about Flash. I really like (at least thus far) how they handle Barry and the entire main cast. I am just severely disappointed with (again, thus far) every single episodic character. The acting also gets REALLY over the top at times.

Looking forward to that.

The Time King just showed up an is thus far the best acting villain yet, obviously because Robert Knepper is one of the best TV villain actors ever.

Also, as much as I'm liking his character, I'm having a VERY hard time taking Tom Cavanough (sp?) seriously. He says every line in the silly/over dramatic voice that he used on Scrubs to make fun of characters like this.

Almost done with season 1 of The Flash.

Jesus Christ, the actor who plays Captain Cold is annoying as hell. I have no idea why he ends up the recurring bad guy when you have actors like Mark Hammil and Robert Knepper.

I found him tolerable in The Flash, but his overacting annoys the hell out of me in Legends of Tomorrow.
