@  Paladin : (23 May 2019 - 06:29 AM)

will they next evolve into Inhumanoids?

@  Ashley : (23 May 2019 - 02:42 AM)

the original slivers were spikey monsters. then the evolved into humanoids. now they're back to spikey bug monsters.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2019 - 10:42 PM)

Wait. Slivers were bishies???

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2019 - 10:40 PM)

They haven't necessarily looped yet. It's possible they're stuck in "yaoi anatomy"

@  Ashley : (22 May 2019 - 10:35 PM)

I think Slivers in MTG have crossed the bishonen line and looped back around to monstrous

lol you expected integrity from internet news

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:33 PM)

I'm mostly confused how news sites went from "Analysing all the amazingness of Game of Thrones" to "Fans sure don't like this season!", like... way to prioritize clicks over a solid editorial opinion

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:30 PM)

[and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site"] is this like the Toei Quarry?

@Foffy and then that giant lasagna just tipped over and killed everyone, to be later known as the infamous Bad Monday event.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

Ahahaha!!! Go read the reactions for yourself. To say anything more here risks spoiling the finale for subscribing Allsparkers, the quality of this season notwithstanding.

@  Foffy : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

pretty wild how heathcliff was in the game of thrones finale, i was not expecting that crossover

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

were they still super pissed?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

Well, as someone who is not into Game of Thrones, it sure was entertaining to open up social media this evening to unexpectedly see headlines about fan reactions to the finale. Lmao.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:12 PM)

But it's also a SUPER-well known location in my region, so these extensive exterior shots without any post production alterations completely ruin the illusion for me.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:11 PM)

I mean, I get why they did it: It's an existing location that fits the purpose, it's open for the public, and they had to shoot some scenes in my home state anyway to due a subsidizing deal.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Needless to say, it's not in Berlin, and even what's seen onscreen is waaaaay too modern for something that's supposed to exist in 1929 (even moreso as a derelict site in 1929). The structures seen haven't even been built until the 1960s!

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:07 PM)

I'm currently in the process of watching season 2 of Babylon Berlin, and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site" or whatever it's supposed to be on the show, and I easily recognize it as a place only a few minutes from where I live (it's actually a former ironworks site that's been turned into a public park).

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:52 PM)

I watched Death Wish 5 last night and clearly recognized Toronto streets; didn't pull me out of Bronson's 1-man war on drugs or fashion or whatever it was that pissed him off that time

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:49 PM)

it's nice to finally be thought of as exotic by somebody! lol

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:48 PM)

In an "I cannot possibly make my brain ignore the location I'm familiar with and pretend it's whatever the story claims it is" way?

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:42 PM)

Question for those of you living in exotic locations such as the US or the UK: If you watch a movie or a TV show that features a real-life location as a stand-in for someplace else, and you recognize the real-life location due to having been there in person, does that pull you out of the story?

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:15 PM)

Maybe you should have installed macOS in your house instead.

@  Noideaforaname : (19 May 2019 - 04:40 PM)

Nothing like coming home after a long day to find a bird in the house. And then once you sit down for a well-earned rest after leading the bird back outside, you find it had a friend. A friend who *really* doesn't understand how windows work...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:26 PM)

Bingo. The big polls don't tell people what's actually happening because that doesn't sell.

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 AM)

IIRC there are good polls but data is easily manipulated so they give people what they want to hear

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 10:58 AM)

The only way to get people interested in politics is to make into reality TV. So they lie to do it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:38 AM)

Yeah, polling these days is garbage.

The sixth season of Arrow had two consecutive competitors for the worst villain of the show ever (as in, genuinely worse than Damien Darhk) along with a plot that boiled down to "Oliver is wrong because the writers said so so let's all start making the worst decisions possible". The funniest thing was that Oliver was actually last to start screwing up.

 

So Season 5 was actually better.

 

Spoiler

 

Anyways we officially have Superman on Earth 52, so this'll make Batman an even more glaring omission.

 

I like the crossovers well enough even if they do mean having to watch an episode of The Flash, so this is good news.

As was Oracle (back when they started calling Felicity "Overwatch"). Even before that, Harley Quinn had showed up as a cameo (which kinda requires that A. Joker exists and B. Joker has been caught at least once).

And over on her Earth, Supergirl mentioned people wearing masks in Gotham.

Though I still hope that they someday introduce Stephanie Brown in Supergirl. Using this exact scene.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

This season of Arrow was cringe-inducingly bad. I haven't seen either Flash or Supergirl since they came back from their last hiatus. And Legends of Tomorrow has always sucked.

 

So, sure, Batwoman, why not. Anything to spark the modicum of interest I have left in this whole universe.

Legends of Tomorrow is fantastic and currently the only reliable corner of the Arrowverse. After a disastrous first season, they pretty much immediately corrected all their issues with the second, and haven't stopped.

I think the main thing that's helped them was leaning into the "team of screwups" angle. Seeing well-meaning and likable people who are pretty much guaranteed to get things wrong, but will do their best to make it right, that makes you want to root for them. On the other hand, we are constantly being told that Barry Allen is a great human being while he constantly does things that are stupid and inconsiderate.

Legends also has a great sense of humor about the Arrowverse. They can't go full-Deadpool, but there's been some great jokes in there for people who've stuck around this long.

I think what made this season of Arrow (and Flash) so cringe worthy at times, is that they're too long. Plot points get stretched out, when really they should be worked out in 2 - 4 episodes.  In Arrow it was the whole B-Team being stupid for most of the season, then Diglit having a turn and finally Oliver being made dumb in the last few episodes before the finale. Didn't help the the main big bad is just a thug, who somehow is more of a threat then everything they faced before. Feels like he should've been a season two baddy, not season 6.

 

On Flash it wasn't AS bad, but still they could've done better. I mean, Barry coming out of the Speedforce, was supposed to have gained so much knowlage and be so much better then he was before. It's a bit of a let down that they had him forget everything and underplaying the fact he's ust as smart as everyone else in team Flash.

 

As for Batwoman showing up next season. I like it. With Titans dropping on DC Universe before hand, building up some of the Bat Family, they could use Batwoman to really bring Gotham (the city not the show) into the Arrowverse. Build it up over a season or two and then when Arrow has it's last season, replace it with a Gothem based series.

The main things I just couldn't get over:

 

1. The stupidity of the B-Team. Splitting them up from Team Arrow could have been a fine idea, but not in the middle of the city being held hostage, and not stemming from such an idiotic starting point ("How dare you spy on the three of us even though one of us LITERALLY did the EXACT thing you suspected one of us did").

 

2. The CW's continued inability to competently redeem its villains. Anatoly becomes decent because Diaz beat a tied-up Ollie? Hug you. Black Siren discovers a limit to her bloodthirstiness when it comes to burning rando civilians? Double hug you.

 

3. The lameness of Diaz. The matter-of-factness with which he bought off and/or controlled everyone in the city. Black Siren's unreasonable and unbelievable fear of him. The fact that he should have been murdered 6 times over in the Quadrant episode and just wasn't because plot. The fact that nobody takes any precautions against him knowing their secret identities. The fact that, during his one confrontation with Ollie before the finale, he had to pull a weapon so he didn't lose a hand-to-hand fight.

Diaz is another fine example of what we are TOLD about the character being completely unrelated to what we are shown.

We're told that he's been pulling the strings behind Cayden James' operation for the first half of the season, but most of his appearances up to that point have been practically cameos, with no hint of any importance. We're told that he's the most fearsome foe that Ollie's ever faced, but he's really this big manbaby that hides behind other people.

And worst of all: (SPOILER for last night's finale)
Spoiler


*ahem* Back to the original topic though, I am hopeful for the crossover. Invasion and Crisis On Earth-X were absolutely delightful. Even though TPTB struggle with plotting an entire season of television, they can clearly do well with making a 4-hour miniseries that can get the most out of it's entire cast.

So have they ever established whether Gotham is at all connected to the Arrowverse... perhaps set in the past (based on the old cellphones, tube TVs, etc.) of either Flash or Supergirl's Earth, or maybe just on one of the other alternate Earths... maybe the one recently mentioned on Flash that's "still on VHS".

RagMan was great but it's probably best that he's left on the side of the show people actually liked.

 

New Team Arrow were a mess this year. Diaz was only slightly better than Cayden James which was just really really sad. There was genuinely a point where it seemed Felicity's hacker girl friend was taking out Cayden so she could become Arrow's first genuine female villain but like, that didn't happen. I have no idea why people expected that though, because it would have been a twist that made sense and was born from what had happened before.

 

Fake Laurel (Yanny?) was so many different people in every episode I still have no idea who she is. I did like her black wig.

 

I think what bothered me the most this season was how killing either Diaz and Cayden at any point after they'd been introduced was extremely easy. Maybe Cayden had the secret whatever codes and then that bomb that lost to darned William* of all people, but Diaz was literally the head of a criminal organization and the only reason people did what he wanted was because he was alive to blackmail them.

 

*Please, please get rid of William.

 

As for Legends; everybody should watch Legends, Beebo is love.

It's never been connected to the Arrowverse.

 

Ra's al Ghul and his organization are all entirely different in that show, even.
