Well, without spoiling it, Iris is going to pull some crazy save out of her posterior on Flash tonight I`m 100% sure.

You have to get past:
- the mush of Iris and Barry
- Evil Supergirl isn`t quite as enjoyable as Red kryptonite Supergirl
- I`ll get slammed for this I'm sure, but it`s not Alex`s orientation that bugs me, just that they`re so vocal about it.

There were some issues with Crisis, some sloppy writing and it wasn't perfect. But.
I thoroughly enjoyed it. You needed to watch all four to get the whol effect but I think watching Legends on its own could work.

Although not her best delivery, I really liked Kara's "General, would you care to step outside?" Line. Atom's entry rocked. Wasn't really surprised when I got a little choked up about Marty. But the rest of the cast delivered for those scenes.

Overall, I enjoyed it way more than Justice League. Far more epic one liners, speeches and moments. And even though they had a Kryptonian, they still needed everyone.

Not sold on Leo, but nice to have him back.

I have to give Melissa Benoit massive credit though I thought she did a great job in the scenes where she was playing against herself switching personalities between Overgirl and Supergirl.

Totally agree on Benoist.

And I'm not surprised by Stein - I`ve always liked that actor.

So apparently, The Ray is supposed to get a Web Series, animated no less. There was a sort of teaser on Youtue that I saw, a lead in to Crisis on Earth X. Looks interesting.

I've only seen the Supergirl portion, but so far I like it. There is alot of stuff mentioned that reminded me of why I don't watch those shows, but it was a.good catch up. Overall it feels very comic book like.

After watching all the episodes, there was the general issues always present in the cw super hero shows, but it was comic book fun. Oliver seems less gruff and brooding now, which is a big improvement. Brooding and gruff for too long is just depressing. The end was meh, but I guess they had to do it for the narrative of the Flash and Arrow. Stein doing though was sad. The actor playing the character really sold it.

Somehow watching it, I could shake the feeling I was watching a live action MnM game where Erde was invading another dimension.

I didn't actually notice it myself, must have turned away, but my son had asked at one point "what`s Erde mean?" so I think they even called it that when they switched scenes.

Well, since "Erde" is the German word for "Earth" it would make sense that Nazis, even English speaking Nazis, use the word, just as they use the word "Reich".

It was a.nice touch. For all my cripes against these shows, there is always little details that are enjoyable surprises.

Just finished the mid season finale of Supergirl. I found it to be better than Batman V Superman. The fight between Reign and Supergirl was spectacular - the Christmas party notwithstanding.

That's faint praise.

True enough.

It's a CW show, so the angst and all that drives me nuts sometimes. But, it felt comic booky. It continued in the same vein and tone as the cross-over in terms of effects and presentation of the stakes.

It was a good TV version of Superman 2's fight, IMO.

The reason why I compared it to B v S was because the fight was at night and we still managed to see clearly. It wasn't deep shadow and all that crap.
