(PLS NO SPOILERS) I want to get caught up on the DC shows but theres too many of em to take in! Only thing Ive seen so far is Arrow S1-3, Flash s1, Supergirl s1, Constantine s1. I binge watched Arrow s3 and Flash S1 back to back episodes and Im not a fan of this!
Main Question: I was wondering If I can focus on 1 show first for a season before moving on to the other shows for a season of each.
I know theres a lot of crossovers and new shows added so Im afraid that focusing on 1 show will ruin each show ex. I already know x character will appear in y show because I already the whole season of y therefore ruining the plot of the other shows...
OR: Should I just man up and watch each show as Intended, back to back per episode?
One of the benefits of comic books were that they were episodic. While having a Big Bad every now and then can be great, I think the writers are too trapped in that line of thinking that every season needs a season long storyline.
Once the main problem of a season has been established, everything before that is essentially just filler and padding which can cause the overall show to be boring even though the individual episodes are great. (This is something not at all exclusive to DC but this is what I’m talking about.) Shorter story arcs can be just as great.
What do you guys think?
Arrow - Great Season 1 Flash - Great Season 1 Legends of tomorrow- (Starts rough but ends well) so overall Good Season 1 I won’t count Supergirl because CBS had it first but the second season was better under CW so yeah first season under CW still Pretty Good . Black Lighting - Great Season 1
I’ll even go back and count Smallville and that had a good season 1.
These shows know how to hook you and get into the characters and story . Is it just me ?
I'm honestly curious to ask. If you had the power to create your own team of Legends, who would you choose? But first, some ground rules:
A) Choose 9 characters. 1 character to be the captain and 8 others as crew members.
B) The characters chosen must have physically shown up at least once in one of the Arrowverse shows.
C) Dead characters can be chosen.
D) Gideon does NOT count as one of the 9 crew members as it is assumed you are travelling on the Waverider.
With that said, here's who I would choose. Personally, I like the current team (as of the end of season 3) so I'm just going to modify that one slightly.
