I think both shows are watchable and certainly entertaining, but they are a far cry from being great in any way. Arrow has kind of been losing me more and more lately because the prequel stuff with Oliver in Hong Kong is really boring, and the action scenes are all basically identical and at times seem like they're just being shoehorned in for the sake of having at least one in every episode.

I agree that the last fight scene between Flash and Everyman was ridiculous - Flash should have taken him in no time - but by and large I find both shows entertaining.
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

I think we're a couple of weeks behind on the Flash, which is weird because we're pretty much caught up on Arrow which is a couple of episodes ahead of the Flash in the UK. All a bit out of sync, especially as characters have been showing up in the other show!

I'm a little confused as to where Arrow is going. Are the show runners trying to make us hate Oliver? Is he playing some elaborate Trojan horse scheme with Ra's al Ghul? I'll stick with it see how it comes out but Ollie has always been a little difficult to cheer for...they aren't making it any easier.

Yes, and this weeks Flash was awesome!

I feel like he must have something up his sleeve, but assuming he is, the writers are doing a good job of making it hard for us to figure out what it is.

Haven't been on here forever.   

Just caught up with Arrow, Flash and Gotham.  I like Flash the best.  Arrow is good, but I don't really like having a current story and flashback storyline.  The Flash is a lighter show that has more intriguing possibilities with the scientific stuff. That both shows crossover quite a bit makes them more enjoyable.  I didn't care for them both at first, but I'm glad I continued to watch.

Gotham is always the one I'll catch up on when there's nothing else to watch.  It's okay, but they are trying something unique with the Batworld backstory.  I keep wanting time to move forward to see the characters in action.  Gordon being a white knight in a dark GCPD offers some good suspense.  I'm not a fan of Fish.

Constantine will see... 

Looking forward to more DC shows.

Caught it last night.

It was an awesome finale, but it kind of felt like the Flash was just thrown in there.

Curious to see where it goes from here.

I still need to catch this week's episode of The Flash, but I will do it today, most likely.  And then the finale is next week.

I just saw the trailer for the Supergirl show. I am physically upset. I am literally sweating and feeling the need to cover my face because of how embarrassed I am over how awful this looks.

Or just not watch it because if that personally hurts you, you need to reassess your life.  It's just a damn TV show.

Sayeth what? I won't watch it. I checked out the trailer, really didn't like it, of course I won't watch it. And from this point on it will mean nothing to me or my life. It's a reaction to a trailer, not a summary of my life.

You go overboard like it's affecting your life.  Just state is sucks in your opinion.  No TV show should ever make you physically upset.

Well, it did. It wasn't my choice to feel like that, it's just how I felt watching the trailer, no exaggeration. It won't affect my life, but it definetely affected my physical comfort in that moment.

Um, ok.

I'm hoping they tone down the whole rom-com aspect to it, but it could be quite fun.

I haven't watched the trailer yet, but from what I've heard about it, I'm glad that there are currently no plans to integrate it into the Arrow/Flash universe (although it is being done by the same people).

Not interested in Supergirl as a character in any way.  Never have been.

We caught the season finale of The Flash last night and we thought it was pretty terrific! One scene was so emotional it had me and Mrs. P sniffling in stereo.

That was a great first season.  You don't get to see too many shows have a first season like that.  Very good quality.

Flash and Arrow finales were cool.   Looking forward to the next seasons.  I wonder how the Flash will change?  If the  Reverse Flash doesn't exist then Flash's mom lives right?  Really everything would change!

I just read that the Supergirl Pilot is leaked online.  6 months early and in HD.  That's shocking to me that it's out there already.  I learned the same thing happened with Arrow and Flash, though I'm not sure how early they were released...  But 6 months!  Wow!  I wonder if people lose jobs when stuff like this happens?

Reverse Flash's line when Jay Garrick's helmet came skidding out of the singularity was awesome!  "That's my cue to leave"

Maybe they are setting up the possibility for the Flash of Two Worlds story-line (i.e. the birth of the concept of the multiverse)?

Yes, but not until later.

Just caught the finale.  It was very exciting, and I can't believe it ended on a cliffhanger.  But there are now a whole host of time problems.

If Eddie's suicide caused Eobard Thawne never to be born, which erased him from time, then everything that happened on the whole season should have been wiped clean, because it was ALL orchestrated by Thawne.  But that didn't happen.

Lucy, you got some 'splainin' to do!

I've already seen it. Sort of cool, sort of  :justjen I think they might have caught the right tone. Leading actress plays her a bit quirky, though.

Finally caught up and watched the season finale of the Flash. Pretty emotional. Very well done though. Guess I have to take back all my earlier criticism of the series. Great cast, fun to watch and great storylines. What a comic book series ought to look like!  :tup

Definitely fun, but time travel/paradox-wise, I'm not sure how everything doesn't implode on itself now.

We'll see.

I still don't understand why Eddie felt he had to shoot himself.  Wells was clearly distracted, and wouldn't have been able to dodge a bullet if Eddie had shot at him.

There are so many angles to do time-travel paradox's, I'm always open to the possibilities.

Eddie was in some form related to Wells. Without Eddie no Wells. Quite simple really.
