Flash's Frost was created by Markiehoe
Just started binge watching Flash season 6 this morning on the CW's ROKU channel.
The only CW show I currently watch after Supergirl broke my heart last season.

A super fun show with two over reaching arcs this season the main one being the build up to CRISIS which I can not wait for.
Alas all is not well.
Caitlin is now Killer Frost aka and rebranded as Frost.
After giving up her own personality.


Good Girl goes Bad
My LEAST favorite storyline.
Why do I bother?

For the few minutes we saw her in episode two
Ultraviolet did look pretty cool.

Not so much give up her personality as let Frost(who is a distinct personality in of herself) a chance to have a life of her own for a bit, after years of riding shotgun in Caitlin's head. Caitlin did come out briefly this past week, and odds are she will be back in the saddle. However, Danielle Panabaker--the lovely actress who plays Cailtin/Frost--did announce yesterday that she and her husband are expecting their first child, so there is a chance that she might take a hiatus within the next 6 months or so.

First, congratulations to Danielle Panabaker. 

Second, Supergirl broke your heart? Blasphemy! 

Flash was my favorite CW show. Unlike the others The Flash doesn't need to co opt other stories from others, ie Supergirl from Superman, Green Arrow and Batwoman from Batman. 

I'm not surprised by this development and can even say "why just now". This was on the cards since season one. I'm not worried, she'll come back.

I'll be honest, Arrow's always been my favorite out of the CWverse/Arrowverse. Always been a fan of the character, especially Mike Grell's run in the late '80s-early '90s, which the show had taken heavy inspiration from, especially in season 1. The grounded, more realistic street level stuff always appealed to me. Sure, it had it's ups and downs over the years(the less said about season 4/Felicity & Friends, the better), but it's always won out in my opinion. At this point, I rank it as:
1) Arrow
2) Flash
3) Supergirl
4) Batwoman
5) Legends

Season 1 Arrow was the best of all CW shows period. 

But they stepped away from it to a more campier show. They had the potential to be the next "24".

I'm in the camp of Frost only being around for a while, and Cate will remerge (maybe after Crisis?).

Did not know that about Panabaker.  Gz to her, and I can also see her taking time off soon.  Again, Crisis could be a good point for that to happen, storywise.

...At this point, I rank it as:
1) Arrow
2) Flash
3) Supergirl
4) Batwoman
5) Legends


You would put Supergirl over Legends of Tomorrow?  And Batwoman above Legends also?  Fair enough. /shrug

Peace.

I've not seen Batwoman to judge it, but it's always "to each their own".  Personally Legends is #1 for me simply because it's hella fun.  In general the news is depressing as hell, so I don't really need depressing entertainment.  Only CW show I watched it's entire season and didn't fast forward though episodes.

Arrow ... it wore me out. S1&S2 of arrow might be the best of the CW, but Felicity and Friends and way too much melodrama got me and I stopped watching.  I think I watched 2-3 episodes last year and FF'd through most of those. (I Loved Felicity at the start, now ... I just can't stand her.  Much like I loved Amy Pond at the start and by the end I though Rory was 10x the companion she was.  (out of place Dr. Who comparision.)

Flash I can't watch w/o skipping entire episodes (I backtrack if the beginning intro makes me think I missed something).  Episodes I do watch I enjoy ... but mainly because I fast forward through entire scenes.  First few seasons of Flash were pretty great though.

The recent "run into a black hole" segement in this seasons EP 1 is prime fan service and pretty fantastic.

Supergirl I LOVE Supergirl (the character) but it gets tough to watch the show and I've not watched it this season yet.. Lex was great though last year.
