I note that no-one has started a topic on this.  Is everyone pretty much done with the show?

I'm holding on until Crisis, just because I've come this far, but BOY HOWDY is it a slog.  I find myself surfing on my phone while watching the episodes.  That... ain't a good sign.

Nope. Still enjoying it. Sendhil Ramamurthy’s villain is not very interesting, but he seems like mostly filler until Crisis starts. I’m hoping XS returns to the show post-Crisis. No one’s started a topic on ARROW either, and ARROW has been better than it has been in years.

I'm still watching and enjoying it. I'm not excited about it, but it is entertaining.

Still watching, still enjoying it.  ARROW on the other hand....  ugh.  Gave up on that show mid-season last year.  I'm only going to watch the Crisis crossover episode.

ARROW is probably the best Arrowverse show this season so far.

I've only watched ARROW when it's been part of a crossover. The characters seem interesting, but I'm waaaaayyy too far behind to start now.

 Still watching FLASH. Finding less and less keeping on board though.

ARROW is definitely better than last season. And I don't have to worry about the lame future segments (which wrecked last season) any more. Apparently the future segment characters are going to be in the series that will replace ARROW. NO THANK YOU!

FLASH is still good, and I'm assuming Cisco gets his powers back. Because if not, why is he even in his costume during the Crisis segments?

What I didn't like is that they finally used Chunk, and he was a normal looking guy, not 300 pounds plus.

Is the villain a new one created for the show, rather than taken from the comics?

*edited to add* I'm guessing we won't be seeing Jesse Quick during this, since the actress is on GOD FRIENDED ME. But I'm hoping they finally introduce the female speedster Jay mentioned he was training before. (Which wasn't even mentioned when he appeared this season.)

Yeah, ARROW’s flashforwards were my only complaint about this season, and they fixed that last episode.

He’s from the comics. Just very, very recent.

I think last night's episode underlined a lot of the issues I have with this show - although I should say that it's probably my favorite of the season so far.  I'm hoping that's not because Barry and Iris were off-stage most of the run time.

And now we have news that Hartley Sawyer, who played Ralph Dibney on the show for the past few years, has been fired from the show due to a series of racist, homophobic and misogynistic tweets he made.... years ago before he was even cast on the show. 

While I can't support discriminatory behavior this does bring up the old issue of whether or not people should be punished today for stupid things they said years ago. 

If he were making these tweets nowadays, I could agree with letting him go but firing him for making idiotic comments years ago seems too much. We've all said or done stupid things in our lives but when does the statute of limitations run out on things like this, particularly when you don't still do the things you're being criticized for?

Yeah, I think we need to acknowledge that people grow up and grow wiser, and what they've said in the past doesn't necessarily represent who they are now.

At the same time, just an apology seems inadequate, because part of the broader discussion we are having at the moment is how easily we brush aside casual racism.

Either way, I'd expect there would be tension and resentment from his co-stars, and it'd be unfair to keep him on unless /everyone/ could forgive him. It's disappointing because the Ralph/Sue stuff was my favorite part of last season. Perhaps they can recast Ralph and claim his face got stuck that way.

People need to stop treating Twitter like their living room.
