didn't watch last night's yet, but watched the other three. so far this season blows. bunch of fucking kids that he immediately trusts and reveals his identity, the location of the lair (?), everything. oh, and one of them has magic rags? and diggle's in the pen. cool that the dude from the walking dead is on here, but in a really boring role for a big baddie of the season. i guess we'll always have the first four seasons.

Yeah, I haven't been that excited about it really. Plus, it's getting harder to believe all the stuff he went through in the five years he was missing. I kind of wish they'd drop the flashback plots finally so they wouldn't have to keep straining to tie things in to the past.

exactly. they don't "have" to, they choose to. talk about a story tool that has become a crutch, starting with at least last season.

One from another Earth would be my guess, since it's apparently pretty easy to pop between them now.

yeah, i like that cisco created a pocket-sized tool to do it and left it with kara. i mean, i know stuff keeps getting smaller, but going from an entire room to your pocket in one season is pretty accelerated.

I believe that's called the, "Oh crap, we never thought they'd be on the same network filming in the same city when we put Supergirl on Earth 2" solution.

so i finally got caught up on this and finished season 6. i was wondering where they were going the first half of this season. it was all fractured and plodding. the back half was much better. alvarez from oz is a great bad guy. it's essentially just him doing his over the top pacino impression the entire time. pretty amusing. and i am so stoked they teased the longbow hunters, holy shit did not see that coming! i hope that is an immediate S7 payoff. that was one of my favorite story lines of the books. anyway, a pretty uneven season does eventually get where it needed to get. still watching, and still say that 'legends' is the most fun of the DC shows, but i'm not watching supergirl, gotham or krypton. just arrow, flash and legends.

Agreed on Legends. I do like Supergirl, partially because I've always had a soft spot for the character and really like Peter David's run on her book. But I Krypton was awful, I didn't make it past the first two episodes. Gotham I didn't make it past the first episode.
Arrow kind of annoyed me this season. I felt like Oliver's personality is all over the place now. And they brought back the Felicity relationship, which I can't stand.

why can't you stand it? i'm on the fence about it, as it makes her character act differently, but it is clearly what should happen with them. it just makes a very convenient go-to during a battle or tense moment or whatever, which can lead to lazy writing. and yes, oliver is all over the place. sometimes episode to episode.

It kind of came out of nowhere when it happened, the continual break-up/get back together is starting to wear thin, and whenever they're together her IQ seems to drop about 40 points.

came out of nowhere? the first time she appeared it was very obvious she had a thing for him. maybe you thought they'd just let that be what it is forever? haha. it's DC, has to be some side love story.

As there should be...with Black Canary. I don't care which of the three.

caity (sara lance/white canary) got more poon last season than any of the guys on the other two shows' entire runs put together. and also some D.

i can't forget how badly i wanted to murder lana by the middle of smallville's run thanks to DC's hamfisted side love story bullshit. and it only got worse. so, yeah, oliver & felicity are annoying but in the context of how bad smallville was, it's a dream to watch.

Words can't describe how bad this show has gotten this season. Everyone's IQ has dropped by at least half, Felicity's annoyance level has doubled, and they're still dragging things on with the same villain from last year. Don't even get me started on discount Captain America with his trash can lid shield. I used to enjoy most of the DC CW shows, but except for Legends and Supergirl, they've all gotten pretty sad this year. It's almost like the movie people didn't have anything to occupy their time any more so they sent them down to the tv side of things to fuck that up too.

yeah it is REALLY dragging on and it's only two episodes in (for me). i don't know how you fuck up the longbow hunters, but i guess you do. also, i guess we're done with the island flash-backs, but now we get island flash-forwards?? wtf is going on with the timeline here? hand-wringing step-mom felicity is indeed annoying. but i still enjoy her.
