So there are three DC television shows that are great to good to ehh.....
It all started with this guy coming back from an island after five years having to survive mercenaries, terrorists, magic & probably more before becoming The Green Arrow!
This show goes from good to great to terrible back to good and with how the end of this season is looking maybe end at great?
Either way if you love DRAMA!, gritty story-lines with tough moral choices and the prettiest people on TV you'll like it.
This was the first spin-off from Arrow and it the most comic-booky show to ever be on television. It's great, it's just fucking great. You want super-powers and giant telepathic gorillas and alternate universes? This show is throwing it all against the wall and its all sticking. It also has the best actor in the Arrowverse, which doesn't hurt it.
This is the second spin-off from Arrow and as much as I have been told it is kind of meh... It has three terrific characters, a horrid villain with an accent that JUST DOESN'T WORK, and some girl that used to be a barista. Maybe check it out once it hits Netflix next fall?BEHOLD THESE SHOWS AND THEIR STORIES!
How have they been since then? I'm thinking about just waiting until the current seasons are on netflix to see if I want to get back into them.
Arrow has continued to be total shit
Arrow was pretty fun for the first third(?) of the season but the second(?) part just got straddled down with relationship bullshit, but thankfully it seems like they have moved past that and the last third has been awesome.
Also Neal McDonough's portrayal of Damien Darhk is worth watching the rest of the season.
Flash on the other hand has been pretty good to great to good through this season.
Personally I think if we got a show set entirely in Earth-Two that would be AWESOME but that's just me...
Legends of Tomorrow on the other hand has pulled an Agents of Shield and become totally fantastic out of nowhere. It's as fun and ridiculous as the Flash but has more characters and divergent stories so if any one thing doesn't really work you can just enjoy the other parts. It's getting a little repetitive with how much the heroes keep failing at half of what they attempt, but it's still great. It's kind of reminding me of Final Fantasy XIII-2 of all things.
Also Legends is getting better and it is on the tip of being great if what i think is gonna happen happens.
That is not just you, trust me
I see you picked up what i was laying down good sir.
So we got the episode Destiny this week for Legends of Tomorrow and then the finale next week titled "Legendary".
Next week is make or break for me.
I gave up on Arrow a few weeks back. I tolerated a lot of dumb shit with that show, but putting Damien's evil power source back together (off screen of course, so we don't have to explain why they would do something so incredibly stupid) was the final straw for me.
I found Legends of tomorrow to be pretty mediocre from the get-go. It has too Big a cast and the show doesn't really have enough to do with all of them.
Is this an upcoming show? I havent heard of it.
Edit: feel like a dick, shoulda just clicked on the link.
OH @Zonugal , you didn't add Supergirl in the OP.
Speaking of Supergirl, i read an article that apparently there might be some issues with the show mainly in correlation with Ratings : Cost per Episode.
Yea i was going to comment on the fact that it should go into its own thread but i think the traffice for that stuff is minimal enough to do comic and TV stuff for DC properties.
But i mean mods can say otherwise.
I'm not sure if I should feel bad for hoping that Supergirl ends up being moved to CW due to those budget concerns that CBS has, if only because it means an easier time for crossover fodder.

What is that?
It stands for Orignal Post.
It's actually really good and has crossed over with The Flash so it's canon.

Is Constantine in continuity or is the one on Arrow a new version with the same actor?
I believe there's nothing to specifically indicate one way or the other, so most people just assume it's the same.
Arrow is just always great when crossing over with someone else, because then it remembers "Oh right, let's have fun this time" and the drama takes a back seat.
Unfortunately the Flash hasn't even referenced the fact that Barry accidentally ended up in a differnet earth while testing out the chest doohickey, so I'm not sure it's Arrowverse canon.
Not that I'm against this. Just saying.
They showed exactly when it happened, just nobody but Barry noticed because it was between seconds in the Flashverse.
It doesn't confirm that Supergirl is Arrowverse.
We know where he went.
But until he mentions it in the show, it's moot.
If anything it confirms that Supergirl is not Arrowverse.
Just that if they wanted to in the future they could cross over with out it directly effecting their respective shows.
Edit: NVM got my answer.
Also, Grant Gustin just kills me whenever Barry has emotional scenes.
This is so incredibly pedantic holy crap

Season 2 has had some sinkers but that was the most tedious episode of television I've watched in a hot minute
Stupid dust, need to clean my room.
Yea, that's it.
I mean, I know I couldn't have been the only one thinking it.
Your first spoiler
but they won't
Maybe I was being too harsh on the episode but
By the time Joe and Iris were leaving their house, I just skipped every single scene on Earth until Barry was coming back through for realsies
The only good part was when Cisco was incredulous about their being a zombie
Wait does this mean we can talk about iZombie in here, technically?
Edit: No idea how that happen, my bad.
the Big Belly customers were very bad actors
the vague speed force stuff was boring
but Grant Gustin is really good and made me feel things despite that
Sorry, but I don't see why setting the bar at "Barry acknowledges where he's gone" before declaring Supergirl as Arrowverse canon is being unreasonable.
if you want to set the bar at "He vanished for two seconds" then by all means.
I just don't agree with you.
As it is, it's only because of the crossover that we even know he left our Earth.
It is super pedantic
I like that you put the one fact that actually makes it canon at the end of the list.
But yeah if they say it is, then sure.
