Why suffer through a show that is really slugging through elongated dregs of storylines with flat acting and instances, and instead spend that time on Daredevil? That's my thoughts.
Hey, sometimes it is just time. I get ya. When the bad starts to override the good ... or even the prospect of good, what's the point in staying?
The show is kinda handcuffed by the movies anyway, so they are limited in how fast they can advance, sadly, and I think a lot of the pacing has to do with that-
"Okay, we gotta stretch this out until Cap Civil War hits and then what we are going to do is ..."
Yeah, okay, sure. Drag us down.
One of the good things about Flash ... and Arrow I suppose ... (and Supergirl, though I have only watched 15 seconds of that) is they are not beholden to the DC movies. That is good. They can be their own product. It also means you don't get the connectivity, but when one side of the junction is being hurt by the other, the joined universe suffers so ...
But anyway, I get why you're out. I haven't been wowed by the last few episodes to say the least, but I remain on as I do remember the good times (last year was just epic) and I hope for more.
I am looking forward to the new Mockingbird off-shoot. They should be able to go buck wild (relatively speaking), or at least I hope so.
When I think of watching the shows like I have to do my chores (like clean my room or shovel, like when I'm a kid), then I know that I'm just done.
Yep, it is why I find myself really wishing the U.S would follow the way the BBC or iTV and have "series" (seasons) that are only 4 to 8 episodes long. Give me 4 hour and a half great episodes instead of 23 episodes of varying goodness. I mean compact the good stuff, eliminate or cut out the bullshit and give us good tv, damn it.
Look at Happy Valley on Netflix for example. I was so damn happy they hit with a season 2. Season one was so damn good. So damn powerful. You don't get the "down time" when you only have 8 or so episodes. You just don't. Hell, it's another reason I like Daredevil and Jessica Jones. Just ten damn episodes so you better pack them with good shit. Even if I don't like "all" the good shit you pack in.
