Crisis on Infinite Earths

We're two episodes in and I'm really enjoying the crossover so far, great to see Kevin Conroy playing an in flesh Bruce

I figured the crossover deserved it's own thread...

Having given up on all the shows (or not even starting some) I have returned for the cross overs and have to admit this has me very excited.

I’ll wait til all are broadcast and binge I think
The last crossover event made it as a small bundle to Apple TV, be nice if this was too

If you are doing a thread, I don't follow any of the shows, but I do follow Constantine so seen all eps with him in, which eps of which shows do I need to watch for this crossover or for continuity purposes should I watch some of the other crossovers first?

You can generally watch standalone...

Elseworlds last year did a fair bit of set up particularly with the:



and flash and arrow have been leading up to this in the first half of the season this year, but you can generally skip that as long as you know:



I confess, I've lost interest in arrow for the last 2/3 series so I'm not sure how that plays in but I know
has been appearing and talking to Oliver since Elseworlds but what about, I don't know, they have been swapping recipes for all I know.

That's it, I think...no Legends crossover to worry about although they feature in Crisis...

Other bits that feature from elsewhere that you don't need to worry about but you get a "that's ******* cool" when they turn up



The music is also really on point, lots of wonderful call backs and musical cues from the other franchises/movies - Particularly noticed the original Batman theme from the 89 movie and William's Superman motif

TBH you don't need to watch any of them to watch the Crisis, everything is explained in the crisis episodes themselves. The Flash and Arrow have the most Crisis linked stuff in their shows this season but its mostly talk in the Flash and a few missions in Arrow.

Supergirl has hardly mentioned it so no need to watch this season which has been bad compared to season 4.

Batwoman, please save yourself from watching this its truly the worst of the CW shows and Ruby Rose is out of her depth even in this cross over. She is about as menacing as a wet tea towel yet she can kick a man 1 and a half times her weight so he flips around in the air then drag men around like they are dummies.

The fight scene before she is recruited has so many quick cuts between punches and kicks it gave me a headache. Certainly nothing like the fight scenes in the Dark Knight and Batman Begins.

So it seems that because there are no broadcasting rights for Batwoman you cannot legally watch this crossover event fully in the UK. What a waste of time.

avoid youtube as it recommended me clips from the cross over and know all the guest stars without watching it just from the thumbnails
