Forums - General Discussion - Why is there no thread on Crisis on infinite Earths

I watched Arrow for a while, but it got pretty bad around the halfway mark of season 3, so I eventually stopped. I've caught some bits and pieces of the other shows, but can't say they do much for me. It's all very soap opera, every episode the hero has to get the same pep talk they've heard 1000 times before another couple times, the production quality is mostly terrible, and the tone shifts wildly between super cheesy and try hard edgy.

In an era where there's more quality content out there to watch than ever before, I really don't see how anyone but kids and die hard DC fans could be asked to stick with these CW shows for very long.

Maybe people don't care

It's actually simple. All the old shows like The Flash or Supergirl were killed by another show called Daredevil.

I can't go back and watch some cringy badly written teenager show with no continuous plot. I mean it with no offense to DC's Arrowverse but nowadays I prefer a series with a short season of interconnected episodes than 24 episodes with 10 useless in the middle.


So yeah Crisis is happening but it should have happen in the big screen at the same time as the peak of the MCU with end game.



I used to watch Supergirl, and Arrow on The CW but I didn't like how PG-13 it was. I like The 100 though.



1990 Flash Death was so fitting. It was a great way to give that series an ending. Brandon Routh as Superman again plus Kingdom Come Superman was great. Smallville got a payoff. All these past TV universes is great! Best one of all was Kevin Conroy as old Bruce Wyne.

I watched Arrow until season 3. Then dropped it.
I watch The flash.
I don't like Super girl.
I never tried black lightning.
I find Legends of tomorrow hilariously bad (got so much better S2+).

I still watch all the combinations. You don't really need to watch the shows to get them. You miss a little background, and some minor humor moments but that is it.

I'd say I still get 80 to 90% of the crossovers. Several of them have done "self-contained" content. Like Arrow last time was just really about Arrow so I skipped it.



  • Deadliest mass shooting by an individual in US history (10/01/2017)
  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

It's actually good to see some people talking about what's actually happening on the show. I'm a huge DC fan but I can't really commit to any TV shows these days.
Is Crisis good?
I don't mind spoilers. If there's a truly epic moment, I might watch on the CW app and catch up.

If you like DC history and comics, it's a pretty fun time. So many cameos from Lucifer to Smallville to birds of prey to flash 1990 to batman and robin to Michael Keaton batman to Kevin freaking Conroy as batman. And he says lines from famous batman movies as well. And just a whole lot of Easter eggs. If you wanted a touching ending to flash 1990, it's there. Plus Oliver becomes the freaking spectre, harbinger betrays monitor like in the comics and the cliffhanger is the destruction of the entire multiverse with a few select paragons trapped outside time and space. Plus Brandon Routh superman is amazing and lex Luthor is a really fun villain with a little twist at the end. If you're a comics need and DC need, even of you haven't watched the shows, watch just this. It's self contained mostly and really worth it.

My wife and I watched the Arrow and Flash for a while, and started Supergirl, but keeping track of it all became overwhelming and then more shows came out. It was like overstimulation so we quit years ago lol.

You all should watch crisis. It's seriously epic, you don't need to catch up with all the shows and there's just so many cameos and Easter eggs. If you love DC and comics, this is a seriously amazing event.

Why? Because the forum is dead.

Anyway, reviews are good so I'll watch. I've tuned out of CW shows for a couple seasons now, but at least I'd like to see how Arrow wraps up.
