Here's a summary of what I gathered, from the worst to the best
(bear in mind that this is only with the few episodes available so far)
5) Gotham (pilot episode only) - drama, cop show, action TrailerSynopsis:
It's the origin story of the great DC Comics super villains and heroes (Penguin, Catwoman, Batman, Riddler, Joker...). A young Commissioner Gordon is the protagonist.Good Points:
- The cast is very well chosen so far. The Penguin is especially fun, as well as Bruce and Gordon.
- The gritty atmosphereBad Points:
- Predictable, in the sense that all these characters have still quite a long road ahead of them before becoming the heroes/villains we know. I don't expect to see a finished Catwoman too soon.
- Gotham is a depressing town to live in, and there's a serious lack of comic relief to balance that. Gordon is the only hero, so far, alone.
4) Constantine (pilot episode only) - drama, action, supernaturalTrailerSynopsis:
A detective of the occult. Picture Supernatural, but darker.Good Points:
- Constantine. He's...pretty hot.
Also his trench coat should remind you of someone
- What we've seen of angels and demons so far builds up the suspense nicely and makes you want to know more.Bad points:
- Constantine. He can be a little annoying with his arrogance and totally careless attitude.
- As with Gotham, there's a certain lack of the comic relief we can find in, say, Supernatural.
3) The Flash (pilot episode only) - drama, adventure, humour, bits of romanceTrailerSynopsis:
Origin story of The Flash, the fastest man alive. (...I have a feeling Marvel is about to disrepute that)Good Points:
- The actor playing Barry is adorable.
He reminds me of Andrew Garfield
- The crossover elements with Arrow
(EEEP) I just can't resist that.
- A decent first episodeBad Points:
- A bit too rushed (ironically)
- THE COSTUME IS AWFUL (and yes he wears the helmet)
- Contains many clichés that Arrow managed to avoid.
- Cliffnotes onscreen, like Sherlock, but less awesome
2) Forever (episodes 1 & 2) - drama, humour, cop show, romanceTrailerSynopsis: A 200-year-old man works in the New York City Morgue trying to find a key to unlock the curse of his immortality.Good Points:
- The main actor is irresistible. His accent, his expressions, his clothes....*sigh*
JUST LISTEN TO HIM TALK OKAY
- The supernatural element in an everyday setting
- Nice series to watch with your mum (which I did)Bad Points:
- He's a little too much like Sherlock in his deductions (but then again we only get 3 episodes of that every 2 years sooo...)
- Can a plot that simple last more than one season?
- Lacks a solid supporting cast
Synopsis: The series follows Oliver Queen, billionaire playboy, who returns after having spent five years stranded on an island following a shipwreck that claimed the life of everyone else on board, including his father.
1) Arrow (season 1 & 2) - drama, adventure, humour, romance
Good Points: (I pretty much did this journal just to speak about Arrow, so it's a long list )
- Episodes only get better, especially the second half of season 1, so for Heaven's sake don't give it up on a whim
- A solid and likable cast (that includes 2 major
actors from Doctor Who
- Oliver Queen.
- Awesome stunts (!!!) and fabulous abs
He does this a lot, just so you know
- "What happened on the island" flashbacks never boring, and manges to avoid clichés
- Good romantic tension
- Some serious sassproof in video ->Arrow: Best of (humour)
- FELICITY IS THE BEST AWKWARD TURTLE EVER
My favorite quote of her so far:Video clip -> "I love having you inside me"
- The main villains, from both seasons, are the best I've seen in years.
- Quite dark, but never Batman-dark
- The crossover with The Flash!
- CW's most watched show, ahead of The Vampire Diaries AND Supernatural
- EEK There's someone from Firefly
- Stephen Amell is such a chill guy XDProof in video -> The Best of Stephen AmellBad Points:
- The first episodes are nice, but not cliffhanger-ish
- I can't find anything else bad to say...
season 1 -> 7,5/10
season 2 -> 9/10
season 3: soon...
