Hello and welcome back to my thoughts on how the CW/DC shows can improve this upcoming season. Earlier I hit on how Supergirl season 2 and The Flash season 3 can build on the previous seasons.

Today, I am going to talk about Arrow season 5 and a couple things the show could do to help make this season fantastic after what was to some a lackluster end to season 4.

- More insight into the characters and their storylines

At the end of last season, We were forced to sacrifice a few different character arcs for some of the team as they had to deal with Darhk and the big fight. This season I am hoping we can hit on some things left open from season 4.

One of the main ones is Felicity and her mindset after what happened to Havenrock. I am hoping we get to see more of the fallout of not just that but also how she is feeling about still working with Oliver.

Other stories I want to see more time on is - Thea and what does she want from her life. Will she be able to hold off the darkness inside her? Diggle and how broken he is after killing his brother and leaving the team? Oliver and how much is being mayor and a vigilante taking out on him personally? Just a few of the things I hope the show hits on in the upcoming season.

-A healthy relationship between Oliver and Felicity

A lot of talk among Arrow fans has also been about Olicity and when or if Oliver and Felicity will become a couple again. While I feel they will definitely become a couple again, I think it also needs time to get there.

We need to see one thing that was only teased a bit in season 4. No not sex (Later for that). No, I mean a long , knockout drag out talk about what they mean to one another. Where everything get put out there and all the secrets and fears are finally told to one another. I think if we see that, then the steps to Olicity being even better than ever is possible. *

*My prediction/guess is the middle of season 5 is when the wheels to them getting fully back together with them as a couple (Possibly engaged by the season finale)

Thanks for reading and next time I will talk about Legends of Tomorrow and what can be done there to improve their second season. (getting rid of Savage is a good start)

Last week , I mentioned a couple ways how Supergirl season 2 could improve. This week, the focus goes on The Flash, a show some may consider the most popular show on the four DC/CW shows. Last season was very hit or miss with some wonderful episodes (Earth-2 and Kevin Smith's directed episode come to mind) and some not-so-good ones (King Shark,anyone?) 

So below are three ways (If followed) can, I believe make season 3 rebound and get the show back to it's season 1 greatness.

    I'm not saying here to never do it again but to give it a rest.Last season, before Barry completely fucked up the time stream, he had gone back into time at least twice before. Once was a very smart thing to do as he had to save Oliver and all of his friends. The second time ended up making the Pied Piper a ally in a episode that gave you headaches for days. 

Now I know Barry will have to go back in time one more time to stop Flashpoint but after that NO MORE. Cool it with the time-travel for at least a season. We already have a time-travel show called Legends of Tomorrow.

-let Barry make less selfish/dumb decisions
    Let be honest for a second. Barry made a lot of dumb choices last season with the biggest being of course, going to save his mom after having tried it before and not accomplishing it. Saving his mom is noble don't get me wrong but not at the expense of destroying the timeline and affecting EVERYONE YOU EVER CARED ABOUT LIVES. That led to earth-2 being found and that whole mess it made. Besides that though, there has been a great deal of decisions made by Barry that weren't as heroic as one would like from keeping Patty in the dark forever to almost ruining his earth-2 counter-part's life.

This season I want Barry to start realizing that his actions affect everybody around him. Every action has consequences and Barry's hurts the people he loves.

- WestAllen and Iris's storyarc
   This will be a short one as I think they are going this direction (and SPOILERS)(seriously SPOILERS) 

 photos of Barry and Iris going on a date and kissing for a upcoming season 3 episode are out there. All I am saying is, if you make Barry and Iris a couple, then do it and stop making every goddamn kiss not have happen or in a different timeline. Making it real and make us feel their love for one another. Grant and Candice are great actors so writing it is up to you. I'm rooting for them!

Also let Iris be a reporter. She doesn't have to be doing reporter stuff every episode but give her a long-running arc even if it's in the background of whatever the main story is. Those kind of storyarcs can be rewarding for fans if done right.

So these are a few of the suggestions I have to make season 3 of The Flash the best one yet. Next week, I will tackle how Arrow can rebound from a not-so-great end of the season to make season 5 wonderful. Thanks for reading!!

The tv season is almost upon as we enter the end of the summer and beginning of fall. Starting in October - for 4 nights in a row, The CW will be airing a DC comics show : Mondays - Supergirl , Tuesdays - The Flash , Wednesdays - Arrow and Thursdays - Legends of Tomorrow

I watch all four shows and enjoy them. I also admit that none of the 4 are perfect by any stretch of the imagination. There are things each show can improve upon and I want to point out 2 things each can for the upcoming 2016-2017 season. for today I will talk about the show that has joined the CW this year for it's upcoming sophomore season


- Keep the focus on Kara and Alex's sisterly bond

- Superman here (but dont make it about him)

I know that the show will be hurt a little by Calista Flockhart becoming only a recurring guest star on there (however many episodes we will see Cat Grant in is unknown at this time). So to count this I have two thoughts.

Firstly is focus on Kara and Alex's lives together and when they are apart. we know next to nothing of what Alex does outside of her adventures in DEO. Lets find out more about Alex Danvers's life. And also Kara having some solo moments with new people besides Alex (and especially without Winn and Jimmy around) Let's see them apart and then have moments after where they talk about what happened and the struggles of their daily lives. I know we had these moments in season 1 but I say increase them just a little to make up for absence of Calista.

Secondly, we are getting Superman. It's going to be awesome to see Superman and Supergirl. BUT the show must make sure to use Superman as only support for Kara. Let him have moments in the first couple episodes but never at the expense of Kara. It's Supergirl and let Superman know that the Woman of Steel is grateful for the Man of Steel but not reliant on him.

Soon I will talk about what The Flash can do to improve it's show heading into it's third season.
