Review:

For the first half of the season I watched episodes about a week or so after they aired on my DVR, then we got rid of cable and I had to watch them online on CWs website. Eventually I couldn’t take that anymore and I decided to wait until they were up on Netflix.

I don’t know if it was the waiting in between episodes or maybe watching shows like Silicon Valley and Westworld that made me unable to really get back into enjoying The Flash. It was cheesy, but took itself way too seriously, and the story felt like the same thing they’ve been telling over and over. Plus the whole Iris is going to die thing felt like it was dragged on forever and I just wanted it to be over and didn’t care what happened.

I dropped Arrow earlier in the season because I wasn’t enjoying it anymore, I know everyone else thinks it’s a return to the glory days, but I just didn’t like it. I think, and this makes me sad to say, I think I’m going to drop The Flash too. That leaves me with just DC Legends of Tomorrow because I dropped Supergirl after the first episode of the second season.

Maybe I’ll watch the crossovers. Not sure. Is this the end of an era for me?

Review:

Awesome! This was the show I was most excited for and it was my favorite pilot so far.

There were a few heavy handed parts when people were talking about heroes and courage and all that junk; but overall I really liked it and I’m excited for the rest of the series.

Liked the casting. Liked the story. I’m glad they’re finally introducing powers to the Arrow/Flash universe. Looking forward to crossovers and the way the series develops. Hopefully it’s like Arrow and gets better as it goes.

2014 Fall TV Schedule

2014 Fall TV Schedule

I just got finished going through the Entertainment Weekly Fall TV Double issue and I’m kind of embarrassed at how excited I was. It took a couple of hours but I’ve got my excel spreadsheet prepared and all my start dates listed, now I just have to sit back and watch as my DVR fills up.

There are twenty-four shows on my watch list this year, eleven are new. I ended up dropping a couple that I watched last year and a few got canceled, which explains why almost half of the shows I’m watching this season are new.

There are a couple that I’m incredibly excited about, some I’m unsure of, and at least one I’m not sure if I want to be watching anymore. I dropped New Girl because I didn’t like almost any of the episodes last season but for some reason I’m still watching Bones. Not sure what’s going on there and I might end up dropping it.

Can’t wait for my CW shows to start, especially The Flash, but I’m not sure if I’m going to like the Fox TV show Gotham. Not overly fond of prequels, I know what’s going to happen, and since they have to fail for Batman to be created I’m just not looking forward to it. I’m interested to see how they do Constantine but it’s another show I’m unsure of.

Several romantic comedies on my list this year, which is weird. I’m going to be honest and say the only reason I’m watching A to Z on NBC is because I loved the mother from How I Met Your Mother. Marry Me is getting watched because I loved Happy Endings, and Star Wars Rebels because I want to see how they’re going to ruin my childhood.

Lots to watch this year and I’m going to try and post a review of each new pilot, though to be fair it’s never good to rate a show based on its pilot.

Now I’m going to watch Haven, which was new last night, and kick off the Fall TV season.
