Hnnnng, look who just liked my tweet:



Sadly, based on the likes, me and her are the only ones with a craving for Crazy Jane merchandise. Really want me a snapback cap.

That mask... yikes.

Did anything come out of those Smallville tweets?
I think that style of mask is just cursed to never look good when done accurately.

Here's the same problem with the Smallville version:




And here's Legends just saying "Fuck it - do an over-sized domino mask instead"

It would not shock me if for Flash/Supergirl/Batwoman we get rushed endings or finales get postponed the way things are going

Especially with Riverdale shutting down for the moment. The cast and crew of all these Berlanti shows must be in contact with each other at one point or another.

So every current season of the CW shows are going to be impacted by them shutting down? Its still crazy to me that they are filming them still so close to their release.

Wonder if it's a good thing for GA and the Canaries that pilot season is dead. No pilots means riskier straight to series orders, whereas at least that show is a known quantity.

Its still crazy to me that they are filming them still so close to their release.
Other than all at once streaming services it's extremely common for US production to work like that. Gotta have quick turnaround on high episode count shows, write one episode, shoot another and edit another. There are exceptions to that. Black Sails looked really good, and I wondered why until finding out that they filmed the episodes like a year before they aired meaning they would've gotten so much longer in post production. On the flip side, that's why you get shows like Supergirl dropping some absolute trash CGI. It's also why Grodd episodes are mid season, so the animators get the longest period of time on him.

But yeah I think we're losing like the last three episodes of the season lol

Remember, shows get renewed around May. So typically, you can only start planning a new season in June. A month of planning, and you start filming in July. And then you need about 2 weeks per episode, with a short break around Christmas. Meaning you have about 44 weeks of work to make one season.

I want to say I'll watch Stargirl but damn I've been struggling to watch the DC TV shows post-Crisis

I've liked what I've seen so far and have a real fondness for the JSA

Synopses of the first three episodes of Stargirl.
"Stargirl": In the series premiere episode, Courtney's seemingly perfect life in Los Angeles gets upended with a move to Blue Valley, Nebraska with her mother Barbara (AMY SMART), stepfather Pat Dugan (LUKE WILSON) and stepbrother Mike (TRAE ROMANO), and she finds herself struggling to adapt to her new town and high school. But when Courtney discovers that Pat is harboring a major secret about his past, she ultimately becomes the unlikely inspiration for a new generation of Super Heroes.

"S.T.R.I.P.E.": After Courtney has an unexpected run-in with a member of the Injustice Society of America, Pat reveals the truth to her about their history. Meanwhile, Barbara is elated when she sees Courtney making an attempt to get along with Pat, not knowing the secret they've been keeping. Finally, things take a dangerous turn at Blue Valley High's open house night when Courtney becomes the target of a dangerous foe.

"Icicle": After a dangerous run-in with a member of the Injustice Society of America, Pat warns Courtney to back down from her attempts to go after them. But when she encounters what she believes to be a message from one of them, she urges Pat to help her. Meanwhile, Barbara makes strides at work, which impresses her new boss Jordan Mahkent (NEIL JACKSON)."

Saw Variety put out an article saying the last few episodes of Flash, Legacies, and Supernatural are for sure not coming out until later. Think it was everything after May1st. But it didn’t say anything about Batwoman or Supergirl?

also Stargirl is taking Flash’s timeslot
