DC TV 2016 Wrap Up Pt. 2
/

You loved our first episode wrapping up all the DC's show so much, we just HAD to give you Towlites part two. This episode is all about Flash and Arrow. One of them is super happy and fun and seems to be going in a cool direction, one of them is poop on toast. Listen to the episode or read the show notes to find out which one we prefer! 

SHOW NOTES

Arrow:

Overall thoughts on season:

Pros:

  • Becomes Green Arrow
  • Constantine and Sara’s return
  • The Calculator played by Tom Amandes, it was kinda cool that they made him felicity’s dad
  • Vixen (Mari McCabe same as cartoon), great way to intro the animated character in. Want to see more of her
  • Damian Darke played Neil McDonough (baby face) was ok bad guy
  • A little lighter, I guess.. He’s still not that funny. Hopefully the Flashpoint will fix all that, compare to rebirth
  • Fight scenes were cool
  • Diggle killing his brother. FINALLY 
  • Curtis Holt played by echo Kellum (Mister Terrific in the comics). Get rid of felicity and use him.
  • Crossover episodes were good

Cons:

  • Still trying too hard to be TV Batman
  • Magic is your big thing this season and it’s used poorly (outside of Vixen)
  • Killed Black Canary and Felicity lives?! 
  • BORING
  • Why is Malcolm still on this show? The “I protect my daughter is getting old”
  • Who gives a fuck about Cooper and Lonnie Machin. Both characters are minorly introduced and then play major parts. WHO GIVES A FUCK. If you are going to use a big bad like Anarky then do it right. He’s not some “thug”.

Thoughts on Finale:

Pros:

  • Oliver becomes Mayor
  • Team disbands. If you’re not going to kill everyone GOT style then this was the best solution

Cons:

  • Made a drinking game by saying the word hope
  • How does oliver shoot damian in the face and let an arrow go into a crowd
  • Why didn’t HIVE shoot everyone?
  • How did Oliver absorb magic?
  • The WHOLE point of the flashbacks this season was to justify killing and to have him go to Russia.
  • Why is Diggle allowed back into the Military?
  • Where the hell did all the nukes go?! It was this huge threat that was just casually taken care of
  • Constanine not coming back and fake zzantana

 

Flash:

Overall thoughts on season:

Pros: 

  • Kept it’s cheer and hope even with Barry going through tough times
  • Zoom was a good bad guy. But I’m ready for some new non-Speed Force villains
  • Gorilla City, Dr Light, King Shark, Turtle, The Rogues (Mark Hamill) 
  • Multiverse introduction. Earth 2 was fun. Doppelgangers 
  • Harry. They found a great way to bring back the character better than before
  • Wally West
  • jessie
  • Cisco true to form. Pop culture references. Getting his powers and being a badass
  • Kevin Smith episode  
  • Crossover episodes were good  

Cons: 

  • Olly can’t go to barry’s dads funeral?
  • Caitlin Snow took a back seat. Damsel in distress. 
  • Patty :(
  • Comes back from Supergirl earth and says nothing?

 

Thoughts on Finale: 

Pros:

  • Amazing. Fucking John Wesley Shipp as Jay Garrick.  Another JSA member is added to possible roster. We will have to see how Legends treats it 
  • Flashpoint storyline opened up… what will the ramifications be? Will they stick if so?
  • Mention the Flashpoint “chair” that helped him get powers back  
  • Black Flash?! Created by Mark Millar and Grant Morrison 

Cons:

  • Kinda wanted to see a hint at Wally’s powers
  • Barry and Iris finally get together and then he decides it’s best to go and change time. When he has been warned so many times, why would he selfishly do it this time..

Tom Cavanagh back in season 3 as Dr Manhattan to create the CW verse
