Did anyone watch this?

After seeing the trailers, I was quite looking forward to it, but after the first episode I'm left feeling a little disappointed. I know they have to introduce everyone and get the whole premise established, but it just seemed all over the place.

I'll keep watching in the hope it gets better, but with a less optimistic outlook!

Watched a couple of seasons of Arrow and dropped it, a few episodes of The Flash and wasn't interested. Managed about 30 mins of this and didn't feel compelled to bother with it anymore.

Superhero overload on TV and at the cinema now and even more to come. The only superhero TV shows I'm finding enjoyable at the moment are Netflix offerings although I did quite like the first season of Agent Carter.

It's a weird one. It's ok. I wish they'd not included the Prison Break boys. They are just awful.

My son turned to me and said:



So it was good to see, later on, that:

Enjoyed it. Certainly a lot funnier than I expected.

The guy who plays Hawkman is the dullest actor in the world though.

Darvell is currently stealing all the scenes. Who knew.

I didn't realise Jeremy Renner was in this...

I'll stick with it as I'm a DC comic-book Geek but the pilot was cheesy to the extreme with almost across-the-board bad acting from everyone.

Hopefully now that they've got most of the exposition-heavy dialogue out of the way (to set the show's premise up) it will improve.

I'm guessing Firestorm was from the Flash as I hadn't seen him before ?

Also yeah I agree about it being mixed up

I really like both Arrow and Flash series but are they going to keep their own separate series, or is it all getting rolled together into this?

Arrow & The Flash are quite safe. They don't appear in this (apart from the possibility of a cameo here & there)

I guess they're just going to drag 'kill the immortal guy' plotline out as long a possible.

Second episode in a row they could have quite easily killed him, but decided to just leave instead.





I almost kicked my tv.

I've pretty much given up on this already, I'll revisit it if it starts getting good but so far its a DC Dr Who with major plot holes.

Oh yes.



Also annoying that they fire the cold/heat guns with wild abandon and I've yet to notice anything get frozen or catch on fire, it's not as if we have not seen the effects for the guns on The Flash. It's a shame that it feels so shaky as the performances from Prison Break and Canary are really watchable. Maybe they need to steal a time ship and get their own spin-off

I stopped at episode 2, warehouse fight scene. Reminded me of that scene in Ultron where it pans round all the heroes. The interesting heroes, with proper movie level CGI.
