    i'm pretty sure by the end of this season we will know all too much about the 5 years we missed.

    See that annoys me though

    we skipped these five years

    and now we are going to tell you about them anyway

    like, if you are just going to do that, then why do the skip?

    What that means is that instead of developing stuff naturally, it feels really jarring. You get the same end point, you just fuck up the middle bit.

    And I am not saying a time-skip flashback method of storytelling can't work

    just that int this circumstance, it doesn't seem to have done so

    cause it would have taken years to get there? or every few episodes there would have been a time skip and it would have been a really weird season.

    Plus this way there gets to be more Shocking Twists! like when kid flash turns out to be zoom or something silly.

    they skipped them because they don't know what happened

    so, in forwarding the timeline, we are given that sense of 'what is going on?', which is projected onto the characters

    I like it better than a season of 'we still don't know what happened, sorry'

    Well what I mean is

    I don't mind some of the changes (I do mind others but whatever)

    but it annoys me that we never actually saw them happen

    it's just "oh no that happened and is in the past now"

    and I am like "hey I was watching that!"

    I got the impression that
    during the five intervening years, Kal'dur and Aqua Girl did end up getting together. I mean, was she called Aqua Girl during the one episode in which she appeared? I legit can't remember. If they did get together, that would put more weight into Kal'dur's fall from grace. Your girlfriend dying vs. your crush who rejected you dying.

    Also, have I mentioned that I really love that Superboy has a problem with monkeys in this universe when there was absolutely no precedent for that in the main continuity? Because I do really love that.

    Oh, and I accurately predicted them bringing Zatanna in, so :P

    I feel like most everything important in the second season could have worked with a one or two year time skip and would have felt less jarring.

    I also feel like this show would have worked better in an hour long format. It feels like the story needs more breathing room.

    I loved the handling of Superboy, Martian and Artimis's sub-stories in season one. Some people are calling it cliche but I think that's wrong. I can't think of another show where a good character is blackmailed and instead of them making a lot of stupid mistakes because of it everybody just admits what's going on and then they go beat the bad guys.

    Was refreshing.

    Most recent episode:
    When I saw Red Arrow I thought they were going down the "Speedy is on drugs" but then realized that it's still a kid's show.

    Then again, they talked about Ted Kord being murdered like 10 minutes later soooooo

    Specifically, how Blue Beetle's friend might end up being
    goddamn Apache Chief based on his look and outfit in the show

    Yeah I started off loving this show but it is coming fast and heavy with the "hey let's be as grim as we possibly can, and also TWISTS"

    edit: I do like some of the stuff. But then there is some other stuff that is less than excellent
