    Speaking to the potential longevity of the show, Iíve always felt that one thing that makes shows (or movies) great, is knowing when/how to end it. Thereís something to be said for telling a really solid story and having it conclude effectively without needlessly dragging it out and becoming a shell of itself. Most shows stay on way too long to milk it as much as possible, but cutting it at a logical point can make the product even better and all the more memorable. If done correctly, that is.

    Absolutely, this was what torpedoed the Smallville TV show. They had three or four 12 episode seasons of material, but they stretched it out over more than a decade of overlong seasons that had to come up with increasingly convoluted explanations for things taking longer than they should have.

    As a result, the entire series feels less than it could have been.

    This is why I wasn't upset when Daredevil got cancelled, it ended on a high note with most plot threads tied up. I'd rather that happen to this show than what happened to the Flash.

    I think this show could easily do well with a four or five season run with 12-15 episode seasons.
    When it comes to comics,one person's "fan-service" is another persons personal cannon. So by definition it's ALL fan service. Aren't we ALL fans?

    And the Eradicator coming as well!

    Honestly never thought I'd see it happen and done so well. On a television show to boot.

    Yeah, I think they're trying not to spoil Edge's Eradicator look for when the episode debuts.

    Definitely hoping he’ll have the Rebirth look!

    Leslie was there as well so it 100% is Supes and Steel teaming up to fight Edge and Leslie

    I'm of two minds about it; on the one hand, ending a show when it's on a high makes for a solid experience when "complete". Several CW shows just got too dramatic but still with no direction and treading water... but on the other, I could watch, say.. Johnny Depp do random stuff as Jack Sparrow (random heists, getting out of various situations, etc) with almost no larger plot at all and be fine with it. LOL

    So, it kinda depends on *how* it goes on past it's prime. But maybe it's just that I'm more into "day in a life" stories than I am "serious for serious's sake" ones.

    Absolutely. This is quickly re-enforcing my belief that Superman is best on television - for the simple reason that there's more time to flesh out his character.

    I'm guessing Eradicator grabs the kids.
