Catching up with Flash, and I'm up to the Invasion! crossover. Had to watch all three of course, and am on the Legends one, and I think they snuck in the best easter egg ever when Felicity gets linguistic issues from her first time travel venture and in her blabbering utters "Darmok and Jalad at Tanagra" :lol

Just sharing with nerds who appreciate this type of shit.

Those crossovers were really enjoyable to watch.

So...I don't watch these shows, but my wife and daughter do, so I catch the occasional episode.  I can't help but feel like these shows exist for almost no purpose other than to showcase incredibly attractive 25-35 year old people (I focus on the women).  Not that I'm complaining, mind you, and I realize Sidney Bristow's dad and Det. Green from Law & Order don't fit that description, but it seems to strain credibility -- and makes it difficult for this casual observer to take them seriously -- when the smoking hot blond with the sexy librarian look is supposed to be a super genius with a Ph.D in quantum physics (or whatever).  Am I missing something?

While I get what you are saying, is it any surprise given how people (especially, but not limited to, the super heroes themselves) are drawn in the comics these shows are based on?  I mean, I'm not defending the quality of these shows (I haven't even seen them and don't intend to).  But as a casual observer of your casual observerness, I think that might be a misplaced gripe.

Not really a gripe; just an observation (and your point about how comic books are drawn makes sense).  However, there's no way that my wife in an alternate universe would have the creds she has at her age.

Hmm...other than Poison Ivy (the last casting of her), and Dr. Thompkins (who is portrayed by the absolutely stunning Morena Baccarin (who is 39), not sure I agree. But then again, I've ONLY watched Gotham. No real interest in the others.

Gotham is very different, and entirely unconnected. The Arrowverse is definitely very attractive 20-somethings.

That's a CW thing.  They target young audiences.
