  1. The Flash - Alleged Superhero

    That list does look a bit like someone going "I'm getting paid to shill for The Flash, but putting as the number one show would be a bit obvious". Jessica Jones' first season was also stronger than Daredevil's second, so just going by most recent offerings it should be number one on that list. Great! That means you'll be in charge of keeping us entertained in this thread.
  2. Indeed. In the messy morass that is the DC TV universe, Arrow has managed to deliver the most satisfying season. But I don't think that even if they had killed Merlyn I would be coming back. The finale had a nice... uh, finality to it, so I feel like I'm parting from the show on good terms. Okay, yeah, I'd make it a point to catch up with the show next summer if that happened.
  3. The Flash - Alleged Superhero

    I honestly wasn't paying attention to the dialogue any more at that point, maybe it's worth it to check out that conversation for a laugh.
  4. The Flash - Alleged Superhero

    To quote the great Hubert J. Farnsworth: "The evil I could tolerate, but the stupidity..." Why do we even bother listing the many ways in which Barry Allen fails as a hero and as a human being week in, week out? Man am I glad to be done with this show. The one thing I am going to miss is taking the piss out of it in this thread. Well, I'll continue following the conversation. It'll be interesting to see if it's as enjoyable without the show as context.
  5. Oh, it's the worst of those three for sure. Which is a pity, I genuinely think it had potential, but not in the hands of these writers. So I'll just continue to invest my time and money into iZombie, lest it get cancelled in favour of another superhero show from this production company.
  6. Boy did this season not earn the extended epilogue. I want to care about the future adventures of Sara and Rory and their idiot friends, but I really don't. One less hour spent watching television for me.
  7. The destruction of an American town by an ICBM was rather not given a lot of attention, it seems, apart from the general horror of the death toll. But I guess Darhk is more fun to watch than politicians we've never seen before holding tense diplomatic phone conversations. Yeah, he needed to go a long time ago, but looks like if it's going to happen, I won't be around to appreciate it.
  8. The Flash - Alleged Superhero

    Yeah, how did evil Laurel survive getting hit by a car virtually unscathed? Also, why are they still trying to keep Barry's identity a secret from anyone, especially Wally at the beginning? Because Joe the stern patriarch says so, I guess. Btw, Joe, you knew Wells was about to pass out, would it have killed you to maybe take a couple of steps and catch him? That's a rhetorical question, right? Barry as essentially a born-again meta human was kind of funny. "Don't worry guys, the speedforce is on my side." Trophies, I presume. Yet more proof that we're watching a gang of psychopathic supervillains. That and the fact that we're back to gloating in front of illegally detained prisoners.
  9. 113 and 101 minutes respectively, according to Wikipedia.
  10. Not much there, but I'm very much looking forward to the second season.
  11. I do know his name, but only because it's the same as the king of the dark elves in Warhammer. A solid 30 seconds of googling has failed to reveal whether both companies were drawing on the same source material or whether one was ripping the other off. Because he's the antagonist in an action movie. We know he's not going to succeed because we know how these films work (particularly since his goal is to destroy the universe), so making him charismatic is the only way to make us care about the character. The complete failure to do anything with him is a major flaw in the movie.
  12. Yeah, it doesn't excuse all the dross we've had to sit through so far in the season, but this was comfortably the best episode of the season.
  13. Galavant Season Two [SPOILERS]

    Damn. There goes my believe in miracles.
  14. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D: To Kill a Mockingbird

    I, too, choose to believe that that's the characters projecting. In the comics there are times when Terrigenesis seems to produce results that are almost tailor-made for the current situation (e.g. when the Inhumans are fighting a massive interstellar war it produces a lot of Triton-like aquatic Inhumans who have an easier time adapting to zero-g environments) but it's not this specific. Overall I'd prefer it though if we got to see an actual Inhuman society, instead of Lincoln occasionally parcelling out information about what his group used to believe.
  15. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D: To Kill a Mockingbird

    Huh, Alpha Primitives. They're embracing pretty everything about the Inhumans except Attilan and the royal family. I guess they do make for convenient faceless mooks for SHIELD to mow down.
