Re: CWs DC Shows: Crises on Infinite Earths

I would say Arrow-verse is even more accurate as he made the new Universe.

Hey Antstad

 

I would agree with you if Arrow's daughter took up the mantle and got a new CW series but, as time moves on, a new Arrowverse herald is looking very unlikely. 

 

But I must admit, the name "CW World" is a bit naff.

Re: CWs DC Shows: Crises on Infinite Earths

Was just having a quick browse online tonight at the Geektown website and their Comments section (down under the list of air dates) and noticed that the guy behind the site has posted some news about E4 and their showing of the Batwoman Crisis Crossover episode:

 

https://www.geektown.co.uk/uk-air-dates/

 

Seems to be saying that E4 will move episode 9 (crossover episode) to the end of the run, hence not going to get shown for another couple of months!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Hopefully that's not something that will affect the release of the Crisis DVD on 25th May?????  I wasn't thinking about the DVD myself, but if E4 do skip episode 9 then I think the DVD will be a must buy.

Hi Thom

 

Cheers for that bit of info, now it seems that the Blu Ray/DVD is more essential than ever for anyone in the UK that wants to see Crisis... as it was meant to be seen, minus the Black Lightning related episode.

 

Putting Crisis... aside for a moment, any news on which UK network is likely to pick up Star Girl?

 

Mind you, the news you've conveyed is the exact reason why I don't like or trust E4, and to tell you the truth I'm surprised E4 even bothered to mention their "Batwoman episode" switcheroo.

Yes, that DVD could turn out to be a best seller...... The best £7 ever spent??

 

No news yet on Stargirl to the UK, anyone but E4 sounds good😁😁

As we struggle manfully in the UK to see this years Arrowverse Crossover in ALL it's glory, looks like the news is starting to drop about what the Crossover will be like next year:

 

https://www.digitalspy.com/tv/ustv/a32478822/arrowverses-no-crossover-2020-two-shows/

 

It's looking like just a two-parter across Batwoman and the new Superman & Lois show.  It might only be two parts, but wondering if it will be just as difficult for us to follow in the UK???  All depending of course if any UK network buys in the new Superman & Lois show??????

Hi Thom

 

Yes, I've heard the same news too, that there'll be no real crossover for the CW superhero shows in the new year.  And since Batwoman and Superman & Lois, in the US, will be on the same night then I believe one show will seamlessly lead into the other.  Although CW has said that other heroes will be appearing in the (curtailed) crossover, there has been no mention of who those heroes will be. 

 

However, there is disturbingly no news of when Supergirl and Legends will return with their new seasons.  Mind you, I do think Legends has outlived it's reason to exist but I would be disappointed if Supergirl fails to return. 

 

As for a UK Network picking up Superman & Lois, I think Sky will jump at the opportunity as long as the reviews coming out of the US are not as bad as, or similar to, the reviews were about Batwoman.  Also, Superman & Lois will be a good replacement for Supergirl, weither that will be a "permanent" or an "addition to"only time will tell. 

 

Later.

Re: CWs DC Shows: Crises on Infinite Earths

After the Crisis Crossover five-parter I think they'll take it easy for a few years with some simpler and shorter crossover action?????

 

I'm sure Supergirl and DC's Legends will be back, probably just some time behind the other shows.........this article from TVLine mentions it a bit:

 

https://tvline.com/2020/05/14/the-cw-fall-lineup-2020-schedule-delayed-superman-and-lois/

 

......both Supergirl and Legends held back in US until Midseason 2021 (Spring or Summer)........obviously Supergirl delayed due to pregnancy and Legends with its shorter season runs does now seem to start a bit later than the rest.

 

Hopefully Sky One can get Superman & Lois, but E4 might be loitering about for some of that action as well???  Even if E4 got Superman & Lois to join Batwoman on their network they'd probably still mess up the Crossover!!!!!!!!  E4 needs some new management just as much as I need a hair cut😂

Re: CWs DC Shows: Crises on Infinite Earths

Hold your horses there. Legends of Tomorrow is the best CW show by far. The first season was terrible, but since then the writing has improved and become the funniest and querkiest superhero show on TV. Every episode is a pure joy. I enjoy the other shows, but who doesn't roll their eyes and look at their phone every week when you know the Pep talk on the Flash is about to start.

If you are not watching Legends you really need to give it a go and remember it's the Rick and Morty of the CW.

Hi Ant

 

I know there's "different strokes for different  folks" but to say Legends "is the best CW show by far" is way-way out there (yes, that's a double "way"). Personally, I believe that Legends is the worse CW show ever, and the best shows they've ever done was when they up against the Legion of Doom.

 

As for Legends comedy's concerned, it's third rate at best.

 

However, I will agree with you that the "Flash Pep-Talk" is truly cringe-worthy  but that cannot take away from the show's quality, whereas Legends has none.  All the quality that was inherent has been expunged for cheap laughs.

 

OK, not gonna "trash-talk" Legends anymore, it's just that it's changed from an action/adventure show into a comedy one written by non-comedy writers, and I don't like that.

 

Some folks do .... "different strokes for different  folks".

PS. Sorry Ant, I've got this tendency to get too  serious when discussing super hero shows and films, yeah it's sad.
