gotta agree. Their finger is so on the pulse this season, they really aren't holding back.

Pretty close to being done with Arrow now.

After all the crap they've been through with the super-smug prick Diaz (who somehow apparently gained superhuman strength this season with no explanation), they STILL didn't kill him & just left him 'to die in prison', despite the fact he's shown numerous times that he can just bribe his way out of any situation involving law enforcement.

I get that Ollie doesn't want to be a killer anymore, but FFS, if you don't want to do it, delegate the job to someone else!

Yeah, leaving him alive was a stupid end to what was a very entertaining episode. When the show concentrated on the Prison storyline, it was very watchable, so it's regrettable with how this week's episode ended.

Thankfully the crossover episodes are due in a couple of weeks. Looks bat **** crazy, but always a fun watch.

Southpark has been on form this season, really nice dig at amazon and jeff bezos

Really enjoyed the 100th episode of Flash (digital fix has good review) although Cicada/Oz's batman voice is eye rolling. The show is far from perfect but its mostly enjoyable. The Crossover episode looks fun

Diaz has been the worst villain in the Arrow, the capture him and give it to group 4 to send him to prison, who he bribes in seconds . Arrow is still better than supergirl (even for comic book show its 2d poorly written characters and black and white plot thats bad fanfic by university student at the bar)

Legends has gone on full on "fluff episodes" I have not caught up on all the episodes but it think it needs a story arc

Gotta say, the DC shows all kinda knocked it out of the park this week.

Legends was hilarious with the constant playing with time, the alternate title sequences & a great gag about the inevitable crossover episodes.

Meanwhile, The Flash / Arrow / Supergirl crossover was probably their best one yet & thankfully took The Flash's lighter tone as a template. Even though most of it was just a set-up for the next crossover (Coming next Fall: Crisis on Infinite Worlds!), I loved the running joke about Freaky Friday/Quantum Leap, the Smallville nod, the stuff about Batman, & Barry & Oliver taking on each others traits was nicely played. Even the introduction of Batwoman was pretty cool.

I'm still not entirely sold on the DCTV Superman (dark Supes was much more entertaining), & his Lois Lane looked a little old compared to the rest of the cast.

Even if you haven't watched these shows for a while, I'd recommend dipping back in for the crossover. Great fun!

Overall it was another good, entertaining crossover event but for me, it got weaker with each episode. Still not that impressed with their Superman & that's the poorest interpretation of Lois Lane yet. Batwoman visually looked perfect but hardly got much to do & Ruby was stiff playing Kate Kane.

Much preferred last year's event which was much more consistent...

Only seen the 1st ep for the crossover (UK pace) it was enjoyable but Grant can't do the "you have failed this city" very well

Me too, enjoyed the series for what it was. Only worried that they can't really wrap up things in a 90 minute TV movie.

The second got off to a similar start, with the opening three episode Earthquake arc that matched the S1 quality..... BUT unfortunately, since then, it has descended into cheap soap-opera & dull, below-par action as this season has been extended to Eighteen episodes...
Never thought Id see someone write that about 911.. Canned it after 3 episodes of S1. Watched Ep 1 of S2 and even Jennifer Love Hewitt cant save this.. Compared to Chicago Fire,CPD,SVU and alot of Dick Wolf and other Police Drama's then it is dire and flatlined for me..

Plenty of better tv available to watch...

I watched it the night it was broadcast, it was uncensored.

Hopefully Matt and Trey will keep going with the series, with the little speech at the end it sounded like the getting bored. The thing is they have making some great episodes

Watched parts 2 and 3 of Elseworlds, part 2 started ok, some nice references like the police saying need back up at Nolan and Burton in Gotham City. But Ruby was very wooden as Kate Kane (the bit near the end with talking was Kara was painfully cheesy) Less said about the Arkham asylum bit. Even Caitlin was dreary (the felicity effect)

I liked part 3, shades of the superman film where he fights the evil version of himself (although the superman fight cgi was poor). Shame 90's flash didn't have a bigger part. Have to look Crisis on Infinite Worlds, sounds good!

It didn't take long for Arrow to drop in quality again to new lows of dullness.

This week's was truly appalling in every department. We got the origin story for the "new" Arrow & the acting on display from this new character was horrific. I've seen more emotion & expression from my kettle!

You know a show is bad when the only highlight was a character's comedy wig....
