It tried to pull a Rogue One where I'm supposed to care for characters dying when they've had 30 minutes of screen time and 0 character development. I actually hate it more than the cliché 'good-guys-win-the-day' stories.

    As for Arrow, four episodes as well and I tapped out.
    Flash, one episode had me 'yeah, right'.
    Superheroes is the cheesy stuff I like when they're story driven cartoons like the DC Animated Universe. Make it live action teen drama and you've lost me.
    First season of 100 is a little cringe , but every review I read said just keep watching, and true enough it gets worth it.

    Some crazy shit happens lol you just have to move past the initial "oh wow an angsty teen show" but I understand exactly where you're coming from because that was 100% my reaction.
    The greatest ever thread on MMO-Champion

    I work a lot, fuck my life.

    I take your word for it, but with the plethora of other shows out there I usually have a 'yay or nay' moment in a fourth episode that decides whether I binge it or likely drop it forever. Arrow and Vikings were some of those shows, and I actually liked Vikings, just kinda forgot about it.

Did everyone just give up on all these shows or something?
    Yes i am watching most of them. but not all of them.

    Supergirl: not watching it very closely. its fun. But a bit to heavy on supergirl is always right/good.
    Arrow: Watching. But the diaz arc etc was getting boring REAL FAST.
    Flash: Watching.
    Black lightning: watching
    Titans: HELL NO. not watching that crap. watch 1 episode and fell so bad after that. It felt like TmnT movies + transformers movies + gi joe movies + whatever else got a love child that is horrible not even his/her mother could love it.
    legends: Find it fun. But kinda hate the unseen evil this is getting old.

    The alliance is there for you

    I watch Arrow still. New season has been exciting. I tried watching the other shows but they simply have a more light hearted vibe that's not so interesting to me.

    That's exactly what the 100 was, until it matured into the grueling bout of pain and misery that we all love.

    It seems nobody is watching much of anything live these days. It's streaming or bust.

    Funny you should say, that was me like 2 years ago, but $27 dollars for Sling or even $12 for Netflix seemed too pricey because I don't even watch THAT much TV. So I recently got the Hulu Cyber Monday deal for .99 cents, and an old school TV antenna for my TV for like 7 bucks, so I got channel 50, the CW here in Chicago.

    Been watching Flash, Black Lightning, and Legends of Tomorrow and Arrow live when I remember on Mondays. Flash has been good. Elseworlds Crossover starts Sunday on Supergirl, rest assured I'm watching that live!!! =D

    *kisses dusty ass antenna*

    CWSeed does have a lot of episodes on it too. Last year the crossovers were posted pretty quickly. It's free.

    The one term that wasn't used that I'm pretty sure we were to understand though in last season:
    Sin-eater. Something that Octavia became. Now if she hadn't like her "Red Queen" status so much...
    Just something that hit me hard. Because I see the term used in other shows/movies, but never quite so accurately.

    Irrespective of all of the other crap on the CW, iZombie is one of the best shows going. It's a shame more folks don't watch.

    Best cooking show on TV. All the different things you can do with brain-shaped processed chicken is astounding.

    It's DVR for us, watching shows at our leisure. The only show we ensure we catch live is Survivor. Our one streaming service is DC for Titans.
    Shut your goddamn mouth, Gene!

    CW takes a lot of good stuff and twists it for a younger audience than is actually interested in the content.
