Production sets are complicated things with way more moving parts than most realize and the "below the line" talent is really unappreciated.

Flashpoint is going to make this season even more of a dumpster fire than it already is and it's fantastic.

It's even better if Flashpoint Ollie and Laurel are a happy couple and Laurel's dead again after it's undone. I would laugh and laugh and laugh.

They put out a trailer for the new season and everything looks pretty much the same.

I mean, my assumption has been all along that the happy Flashpoint alternate reality will last for like half an episode before Barry starts dealing with all the previously established stuff that get pissed off when you gently caress with the time line and then he "corrects" it within half a dozen episodes if not 1-3.

Which would allow them to change a few things and leave a perpetual "anything can happen" later aspect as well as take the other shows off the hook for any Flashpoint changes unless they really want them (like bringing Laurel back from the dead, but I imagine they could just use her on Flash and Legends if they really wanted to and wait a season to resurrect her).

I write up call sheets and shot lists for my projects at work and it's kinda easy. I always just go over them twice at least to make sure I didn't forget anything.

In fact I have to write another one on Monday, yay. But yeah it gives me a little anxiety. But I'm lucky because my boss is chill about mistakes.

I am like 90% certain they've said that Flashpoint is confined to The Flash. As it turns out there isn't all that much overlap in viewership between Arrow and Flash.

The Ringer wrote a nice appreciation of Berlanti's DC empire this week.

quote:

I remember Greg and (Andrew Kriesberg) were working on Arrow Episode 11 or 12 in that first year, and Greg said, ‘We should do a spinoff.’ … I literally said out loud, ‘You want to do another show? We can’t even do this show!’

It's not that Felicity the character is terrible; it's just that every scene she's in is a total bummer that sucks the life out of the show. If they could just stop doing that part, they would be fine.

That is the correct response to have, though. Back in season 1 and 2 she was fun as the sidekick and the comic relief. Then she became the dramatic female lead/love interest and the writers completely changed the way they wrote her character.

She's not the only one who's suffered, however, but she's probably the most notable because she gets such a huge percentage of the screentime now. Malcolm also used to be awesome early on before they completely ruined him and now he sucks and desperately needs to be killed off for good.

Still seems like a stretch that he learns fluent Russian and becomes a trusted member of the Bratva in less than a year before he goes back to the island and grows his beard.
