The Thinker's been a great villain this season & if only the show had stayed focused on just him & his wife, this season could have been just fine. The opening scene of this week's show, showing a fight between the Thinker & a heavily fortified govt. supers-prison was amazing! A great 7 minutes of The Flash. but then .... we had all the other stuff which just bogged down the show. This season will go down as probably the worst so far, but it didn't have to be.

I think they can still do 20+ episodes each season but what they need to do is break the season into 2 story arcs, have episodes 1-10 be it's own story arc and then 11-20 can be an all new story arc, this would eliminate all the filler episodes...

This would indeed solve it all, as would, even, 2-3 episode arcs, which would be fun if semi-serious & much more akin to what makes the comics work so well. Why in the world can show-runners, who are paid thousands & thousands of dollars to plan seasons, can't seem to figure this out?

Just finished the series last night

Think i'm getting a bit DCU fatigue. Some more of the same as the last 3 seasons with some nice touches but slowly this is getting a bit dull

Funnily enough I was starting to think this. I'm finishing the latest season's of Flash and Arrow just because I want to know how they end and then I think I'm done with them, Legends and Supergirl.

There are too many other things i'd rather invest the time in.

All those DC shows use the same story formula so it's probably why people are starting to get burnt out on them...

I've also noticed lately the writing is going in a direction to try an attract female viewers, if you notice it's all girl power lately and the guys are just a bunch of dopes that can't do anything right without females telling them what to do.... Especially on Flash... Seems like everything is about feelings and emotions.... screw that give me some hardcore action !!!!
