Arrowverse 3

DC’s big screen efforts to create a shared universe of blockbuster flicks may have crashed and burned harder than the Hindenberg blimp, but the comic book universe of that particular brand of comic books is still alive and well on TV! Sure, it may be cheesy, you may want to fast forward three minutes whenever someone says “I should go talk to him” and sure the amount of cheese present is dangerous for your health but dammit I can’t help but not love the Arrowverse.

There’s still a ton of action, intrigue and comic book references to feast on every week, and the core shows making up that world of leather and trippy sci-fi are coming back this October. While more plans for Arrow, Supergirl, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Black Lightning will be revealed at Comic Con this week, DC’s YouTube channel did drop a few new details on what to expect this year.

So before we begin, spoilers! If you haven’t caught up on any of the Arrowverse show and you have no idea why I giggle whenever someone mentions Beebo wanting a hug, turn away now!

  1. Persevered with Arrow for ages, dropped that 2 seasons ago. Cant even remember what was going on.
    same with flash, the savatar line was a massive snorefest.
    Supergirl kept me interested for all of 10 minutes.
    And managed to get through the first season of legends of tomorrow.

    Im running out of netflix things to watch, so maybe I’ll pick up flash and arrow.

    Legends is by far the best. Doesn’t take itself serious like the others.

      Only one of these I watch consistently is Flash. I only catch the crossover episodes of the others.
      Has Legends gotten better since the initial season?

        DUUUUUUUUUUDE
        So much better. It actually realises how silly it is, and rolls with it. Only downside is the usual CW cheese and freakin’ Amaya being a wet blanket.

          I should really check it out then.
          The first few episodes in season 1 really put me off and I’ve only watched one or two since then.

            Start with season 2 even. Show fixed itself early on.

        You have no idea how much better it’s gotten after season one. So. much. better.

        Nick… Nick’s… right. Sorry, I nearly vomited into my mouth saying that.

      But it feels so B rate.

      It had some good plot stuff going on, but then was all let down by how much of a snorefest the actors were.
      They are the B team from the rest of the series, and they really made it feel that way.

      I gave season 1 a shot, stuck with a few episodes of 2, but zZzZz…

    With Arrow, there’s also been some conjecture that it will loosely follow the “Supermax” storyline, the one they almost made a movie about a few years back.

      Look, Arrow has been more hit than miss altely, but season 4 of The Flash was a huge improvement after Savitar. Similar cheese, but great new non-speedster villain, fun new cast members and a whole heap of more fun overall.

        Yeah, tried getting back into arrow last night, netflix has up to season 5, but meh… Its so… days of our lives-ish.
        “Hey guys, look, Laurells come back to life for the 3rd time, lets all celebrate! Oh wait, shes really just the evil parallel dimension version of her whos been broken out of prison again? damn, didnt see that coming guys, but I think I can save her anyway.”
        ugh.
        figuring out how to watch the next season sounds like effort.

        Will give flash another go tonight.

        I just want more superhero stuff and less soap opera
