elseworlds was pretty good. it's great when team flash gets to hang out with a darker/more serious character so none of them have to be moody. tonally like season 1. light-hearted flash is superior flash.

cicada sucks.

I’m still watching. I don’t let the stuff that doesn’t make sense bother me too much considering he could easily solve just about any situation with his speed, I still enjoy the dumb fun. I gave up on Arrow last year, it was way too late, but I’m so happy I did. Elseworlds was pretty fun, and Legends is a lot of fun (the last episode was fantastic).

I'm still watching. I thought Elseworlds was the best crossover thus far. They kinda wasted Earth-90 Barry Allen tho. Would have loved for him to get more screen time. In all, I think using less characters this time around worked in their favor.

I've also now got a pretty substantial crush on Jessica Parker Kennedy (XS) and was pleased to discover she's in her mid 30s.

lol at XS being in her mid-30s. The character is written like a 19 yr old haha. Does she show up in Elseworlds at all btw? I've only watched Part 1 and I figured she'd do something other than NOT BEING MENTIONED AT ALL.

I did really like the throwback to Smallville though when they cut to Barry/Oliver finding Supergirl. Brought back some nostalgia. Question -- did this Amazo robot show up in DC lore at all? Seemed like a pretty cool villain/henchman since it takes powers of everyone, even non-metahuman superheroes. Seems a little weird though that this random company created a robot that had the capability to become the most powerful thing on Earth. You'd think they'd wanna store that guy in more than just a wooden crate.

Sidenote: Where is Wally again? And Julian?

^ no I don’t think XS ever shows up. Amazo is defineitely from the comics. If you watched Arrow, season 2 the big ship was called the Amazo, and it was led by Anthony Ivo, that was an Easter egg, In the comics Ivo created the Amazo robot

^^ no XS in the crossover.

wally has been off with the legends. he comes in for finales/premieres and is like "i still have so much to learn, you guys got central city" and then isn't mentioned again.

julian went back to england after flash went into the speed force after defeating savitar.

Just started watching Flash on Netflix a couple of months ago.

Finished Season 1, currently a couple of episodes into Season 2.

Thoroughly loved it all so far!

BTW, there are some pretty hot ladies in some of the episodes, latest one being Officer Spivot.

Anyone watching Crisis on Infinite Earths?

The number of tie-ins and crossovers are actually really cool. They span a number of DC properties from over the years -- 1989 Burton Batman, Tom Welling's Clark Kent from Smallville, Kevin Conroy shows up as Bruce Wayne, Brandon Routh reprising his Superman role from Superman Returns (Despite still playing The Atom too), they even have a small part from the 1960s Batman featuring Burt Ward.

Yeah I’m watching, although I haven’t ever watched supergirl (except previous crossovers), stopped watching arrow a few seasons ago, and stopped legends midway through last season, the crossovers still kinda fun. Routh isn’t playing his previous Superman, he’s playing Superman from Kingdom Come.

^ i'm pretty sure he's the Christopher Reeve/Superman Returns Superman, just much later after an event that killed everyone he loves. he even makes reference to this infamous fight from Superman 3 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fQ5sMUzf2bo

still, very cool for them to put him in the kingdom come suit.

He is the same Superman from the Christopher Reeve continuity. He mentions in one of the episodes something about his son, Jason. That is the name of the little kid in Superman Returns that turns out to be his son with Lois.

At one point a different universe Lois asks why he changed his suit to the black/red and he gives an explanation.

I never watched the show Lucifer but they have a short bit with him and Constantine too.

I, too, haven’t watched any of the CW DC universe shows outside of the Flash, but it isn’t that hard to put 2 and 2 together. Started some of them but couldn’t finish them. LOL at Batwoman though, they are trying to make her so edgy.

i've watched a couple clips of the crisis. i really appreciate what they're trying to do but man does it feel low-rent and poorly done

^I, too, haven't watched the final ep of Crisis on Infinite Earths but was really surprised by that cameo too! Even more surprised that they were able to keep it a secret.

A lot of these CW superhero shows have really jumped the shark lately but I gotta say, I've really been impressed by this crossover series in terms of the shear number of different universe tie-ins they have managed to pull off. No doubt that if Christopher Reeve were still alive he would have made a cameo too.
