I feel cheated too, just assumed it would be a day or two delay. I usually only watch Legends but it sounds like a break in UK airing of Arrow and Co. until February is normal.
Problem is this isn't a normal situation!
It might give time for Batwoman to be solved but by then I'll have been properly spoiled by the US internet. I predict a lot of people sailing the high seas...
Just wanna lay down some of my thoughts (drinking coffee at the moment, may try something harder later on to console myself):
You know, no one has picked up Batwoman yet, so it's too late for that Christmas miracle, and I now feel that if it is ever picked up it will have to be at a substantial discount. Therefore, it is unlikely Batwoman will appear in the UK this side of June 2020, long enough for the copyright holders/owners to admit defeat and sell this show at a loss (after all, it's better to make some money than none at all).
Yeah, I think the "eye patch" brigade are going to have a "high time on the high seas" but there is one thing I find astonishing, Sky/Now TV know how much interest has been generated in the UK by Crisis .... and, it seems, they're going to let all that interested go until about late January or February 2020, that just does not make any sense to me, business or financial.
In the meantime, I will continue to contemplate by listening to my Rag 'n' Bone Man album Human.
A deeply serious album.
@ukbobboy Yikes it is all such a mess involving Crisis isn't it? It really wouldn't surprise me if Netflix or Prime just got Batwoman last minute but that Starzplay service has their eye on DC if you think about it how they swiped Pennyworth up so they could potentially get it?
Nice taste in music, I love that album. 💖
Yes, it is a mess but it shouldn't be, after all, it's not the first time Sky/Now TV has dealt with CW crossovers. They seem to have dropped the ball this year, and that for me is unforgivable.
I guess I'll have to wait until the DVD Box set for Criss... is available, whether here or in the US so that I can order it as soon as possible.
@ukbobboy Personally if it wasn't for The Flash, I would have dropped all of these shows as all of them are just boring now so I wasn't going to watch Crisis anyway. That's just me though.
The Flash I still love 100%. ☺
For me, I still like all CW's super hero shows, with the exception of Legends but I still watch it. It's just that CW need to lay off the politics in Supergirl, it's turning away a lot of people from the show.
As you have said before, Flash is still good and has maintained it's fan base, because it is not trying to "beat you over the head" with an unwanted political point, like Supergirl sometimes tries to do.
However, I'm hoping that CW has learned it's lesson, from Supergirl's falling audience and Batwoman's continually bombing shows, that heavy handed political messages are not the way to keep your fan base, let alone grow an eager and loyal audience.
@ukbobboy That's why I dropped Supergirl before last season's finale. If I wanted to see politics, I would just stick the news on. 😠
Thinking about it, I need to catch up on this week's Flash.
Hello Party People
Another final Crisis.... trailer, our consolation prize until Sky/Now TV streams this epic saga (4 out of 5 shows anyway) onto our TVs sometime in the new year.
Oh, BAHHH Humbug!
