    Very slow clap.

    He threw down with the Flash for the challenge, lol

    I just watched the first episode. I kind of liked it and had a good laugh though probably for all the wrong reasons.

    Frankly, it reminded me of the typical team in a so-called role-playing game. You've got a group of people that it makes no sense why they would be together or stay together but they do because of a contrived plot device that has nothing to do with anything intrinsic to the characters. You've got the professional assassin working side-by-side with humanitarians. You've got the two "players" who really want to be playing villains but they have to have at least a shallow pretense of being heroes to be in "the game".

    I wasn't taking it seriously and very little about it struck me as being all that good but it wasn't bad either and strikes me as something that will be fun to watch.

    Stein and Jax probably have my favorite dynamic in the whole show. There was anger in what they said to each other but truth as well plus concern for each other. Next favorite may be Snart and Ray. Such a huge contrast is probably why they keep pairing them together. I love Snart stealing everyone's wallets.

    We get to see Rip and Mick interact this time as well as Sara and Kendra. They both have the urge to kill that they can't suppress so they have to embrace the warrior and channel it. Nice to see the two women on the team find common ground that way. Speaking of which, why does Gideon refer to them by their first names on that viewing screen thing while everyone else is their last name (except Ray was "Atom" when he shrunk inside Kendra)?

    Well poor writing helped him, so I'm not sure that counts as much of an accomplishment.

    That's too bad. I was hoping for live Doom Patrol to appear in the future.

    There might be more than a nod - they're experimenting with some powerful forces trying to create a superhuman. It wouldn't surprise me if Vostok ends up "negative-ized" before the storyline is over...

    I do like the nod to a Russian Firestorm though. (wish I'd remembered more about those comics, but it's a bit of a blur)

    Well, I could be wrong. It wouldn't be the first time. Someone has noticed that the scenes from next week show something happening to Val so you might get your wish to some extent.

    Poor Ray Palmer sure did have to take a beating in this episode tonight in order to get his point across to Heatwave.

    They were knocked out of the time traveling hyperspace and landed at a random space and time.
    Which was Star City in 2046.

    And they had a Prison Break joke. That was funny.

    Old Man Ollie is coming. The one armed archer!

    Good episode this week. I hope we see Negative Woman in the future.

    Yeah I got that part, any idea who's the black archer that they thought was Ollie?

    I was thinking Ollie's son..but William was Caucasian, wasn't he?

    Perhaps, Diggle's son? (He could have another child later on).

    That's how it starts. The fever. The rage. The feeling of powerlessness. That turns good men....Cruel - Alfred.
