Arrow – Season 8 Overall Review

Arrow Season 8

So after eight-ish years, Arrow has come to an end, and while the many shows that span off from it are pressing forward, it’s a shame to see it go… is how I felt at the end of last season, which felt like the actual final season. Season 8? It was mostly build up for the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover, a backdoor pilot, and then an actual final episode that wasn’t any better than the finale of Season 7, with the exception of having more cameos. Still! Let’s have a final look at an Arrow season (unless I go back and re-watch earlier seasons a fair few years down the line…)

Legends of Tomorrow – Season 4 Episodes 1 – 8 Review

LoT S4 P1

Legends of Tomorrow was, in my opinion, the best of the four Arrowverse seasons from last year, being as funny as it was entertaining and occasionally dramatic, and while they definitely leaned in too hard on the humour so far, Season 4 still offers up a fun mix of time travel antics and fun character interactions. Let’s have a closer look!

Elseworlds Review

Elseworlds

The 2018 Arrowverse crossover was a different kind of beast than the previous two, being less focused on all-out action between teams of people, and more interested in doing three things: explore the psyche of Barry and Oliver, create a backdoor pilot for a Batwoman series, and set things up for 2019’s big crossover. It does all these things well, but it also makes for a less interesting crossover, especially as I’ve had my fill of “evil” versions of the established cast…Let’s take a look, anyway!
