I'm looking forward to The Flash tonight. Arrow, not so much. Last season wore me down with Felicity. Can't stand her or her mother who has apparently been confirmed for multiple episodes this season. Shoot. Me. Now.

Oh sure they handled The Flash intro well. Palmer just took up too much time. Probably would've worked better if he were just a reoccurring character for a few episodes spread out over the season, not a regular.

This week's Flash and Arrow were both quite strong.
I still think Flash is the better show at the moment, but I'm already enjoying this season of Arrow much more than last season. Both are off to a strong start, although the women on Arrow are just as annoying as ever.
Yeah he was impressive. Love how everything flows on The Flash. Arrow just feels like there is too much going on...maybe because they created and kept too many characters that didn't exist in the comic(Felicity, Thea, Diggle)?

Enjoyed the Flash/Arrow cross-over, but they really need to get these shows back more on track.
Flash has been really good this season, Arrow has been better than last season, but there's just too much unnecessary stuff in both just to help set up the Legend's of Tomorrow spinoff.
Would like to see Arrow go darker and have more of a first season vibe. I'd totally be in favor of Thea being killed off (and really killed off for good), making Malcolm more of a badass villain out for revenge against Arrow for letting his daughter get killed. Kill Felicity off in the process.
There's no real sense of danger on the show, as the characters that are most annoying (Laurel too) are safe.
I'm not saying they need to go all Walking Dead in that regard, but at least in the first two seasons they weren't afraid to kill off "main" characters at the time (Tommy and Moira).
At least on The Flash, 95% of the characters aren't annoying as hell. Arrow has gotten to the point where the annoyance has bled over from the annoying characters to the ones that weren't annoying. For instance, I used to like Diggle, now he's a bitch. And in efforts to save their friend/partnership, Oliver becomes a bitch as well. This of course is preceeded by the triangle of annoyance that is Oliver/Felicity/Felicity's Mother, which is only getting more convoluted with the mother's budding relationship with Captain Lance and dear God why do we still watch this show??? I swear, they could turn this into a spinoff of Vampire Diaries in just 2 episodes, 3 at the max.

Good mid-season finales for both shows.
I'd say I enjoyed Arrow's a little more, just because there was more Darkh in the episode (and Neal McDonough has done a fantastic job as that character). Flash was a fun romp though; nice to see the Trickster and Spartacus again.

So, enjoyed both the second half premieres for Flash and Arrow.
Just finished up watching Legends of Tomorrow, and I rather enjoyed it. I thought it was going to be stupid, but I liked it. Of course I liked Sara a lot on Arrow, and Captain Cold has always been awesome on Flash.

Enjoyed The Flash finale, even if it was predictable and I thought the thing with Zoom ended a little easily. Bit of a letdown considering how menacing they made Zoom out to be earlier in the season. I like the twist at the end though, should make for an interesting third season. Looking forward to seeing the ramifications of that decision.
