    Gotham

    If you wrote it off, you might want to get caught up again because the last few episodes have then into their rhythm. Really good ep this week.

    I've only watched the first episode mind you, but Constantine definately has me watching just to see if they follow up on the massively powerful magical artifact they showed in the pilot.

    So with Constantine 1x03, we now have the British bloke who's travelling around helping people explaining to his feisty but uninformed companion how his home base is bigger on the inside, and this piece of paper will identify him to anyone depending on what he desires at that moment?

    Someone on the writing staff is having fun there, in between all the blood and demons.

    Looked for a thread on Constantine, missed that one. If someone with supernatural powers wants to fold this thread into that other one, I'm game.

    So this is where we are meant to discuss Gotham? Never would have guessed, and was disappointed that the specific thread died. That show is continuing to kick ass. The rest of Nova's list, I've never even heard of those shows.

    Constantine is really fun.

    Gotham, to me, had some serious growing pains, but it seems to have hit its mediocre-but-palatable stride since the game changer two episodes ago.

    And Flash just continues to be sparkly bits of sugar with nothing underneath, but it does that very well.

    I gave Arrow two tries, at the beginning of the first as well as the second season. It never hooked me. But given its shared world with Flash, I might try yet again. Is there a good fairly recent point to jump on?

    that's sort of difficult to suss out because it's sort of continuous curve but if you want to just jump to the point of a fully formed "Arrow Family" that would be from the beginning of this season. A lot of time in the previous seasons have been dedicated to building the frat-boy rich guy into the hero we expect from the name. Plus logically putting a world together where such a guy makes some sense.

    What i do with jumping into a show in progress if i don't want to watch every ep is find a good Wiki site to get me up to speed.

    Anyway, by now you have a guy fully confident in who he is, he's got a Speedy/Arsenal sidekick, a right hand man, an "Oracle" type computer girl, a good relationship with the police commissioner, and an oncoming Black Canary 2.0 - in a way, it's a sort of Batman series using Arrow as a sub for the character they can't use. Only with a lot lower angst level.

    I liked the shoutout to Doctor Who and so far I'm enjoying it.
    Agree on the growing pains, I think it's better than mediocre though. And on an upward trajectory.
    It's a lot of fun, and Clancy Brown as Eiling was brilliant casting.

    Gotham has hit it's stride with the last few episodes. The cast has settles into their respective roles, and it shows. I put Gotham just behind AoS in terms of overall quality.

    the bit with Bruce and Alfred this week was sweet! THAT is the kind of fan-service I live for.

    Ditto Arrow last night. I wish Ted Grant (Wildcat!) were older. as in th comics. I hate that you take a guy with some years and turn him into a pretty boy - BUT the plot was excellent. It establishes Wildcat as a previous vigilante, the pissed-off sidekick thing reminds you a bit of one of the story arcs from the Batman comics and the found a legit way to include a shot of....

    BOXING GLOVE ARROW!

    WOW the last Gotham was good. They've really hit their stride lately. I love what they're doing with Dent -- completely new take on the pre-TF character, at least to me, and yet it makes perfect sense.

    I know, right? Dent's explosion at the guy he thinks is behind the Wayne murders . . . man, was that Two-Face peeking out or what?

    Just watched it. Agree on Dent -- that scene was quite powerful. Also love where they are taking the Alfred-Bruce relationship. Overall, I spent much of the hour thinking about how much I liked the show. It's a great police procedural. Throw in all the Batman stuff, and it's absolute win. Great productoin values, too, and quite stylish. There isn't much not to like.

    might be a good property for SyFy to pick up in their newfound purpose - if indeed NBC drops it.

    NBC just handed off a Tina Fey series to Netflix because NBC feels they have too many dramas in their lineup, so it's possible that Netflix or Amazon could be in talks to pick it up.

    NBC is bleeding cash, and their Comcast overlords are trying to find ways to keep their dying business model alive, so they're likely to dump anything which doesn't turn a quick profit. The question remains if they'll try doing risky programming to regain viewers. If they don't, then they're certain to be goners.

    near the end of tonight's Flash episode, Dr. Wells is rattling off a list of names of people killed (or at least, that he thinks were killed) in the accident. Every one I understood well enough to look up is a known DC character. I started looking them up because the first name mentioned was Ralph Dibny. Easter eggs? Fan service? or seeds of future plots?

    Ralph Dibny? The Elongated Man! He can stretch his physique to fantastic proportions.

    And Sue Dibny, his wife, is the happiest woman on Earth.

    (Well, until she was murdered by the Atom's ex-wife, but that's another matter...)
