I seem unable to resist watching tho it is very frustrating. Arrow is & Smallville was so different from the comics that if they had changed all the names of people, places, etc, they shouldn't have needed permission from DC Comics to produce & air the shows. The "No cape & no flying" in Smallville is just utterly stupid. As are the Lost scenes in Arrow. If they must tell such a different story, why don't they make it about new different characters? In Gotham, why make Bullock so corrupt when a new character would have worked better? Why is Selena a few years older than Bruce & Montoya 15 or 20 years older than Bruce? 1 of the important poignant aspects of the Batman origin is his parents were killed by an ordinary mugger so that is thrown out for TV. Depicting the murder of Bruce's parents should have taken 4 or 5 times as long. Ads for Flash seem to show that 5 or 10 people know Barry's secret. Why???
