I feel like this show really picked up with the two part "Shiv" story despite some of the teen melodrama. The later episodes' unexpected death and reveal were handled fairly well. I think the production value is some of the best CW has done as far as the sets, costumes, CGI and action sequences. Better than their other superhero stuff, and on par with similar shows like Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, etc. I am really looking forward to the two part finale!
Can't give CW credit for production. It was a DC Universe show. CW is only running the 1st season in "repeat" so to say and will control the show starting with season 2.
Gimme a home on the ol' prairie where I can sit in my rockin' chair reading my favorite old comic books of yesteryear!

I lasted about 12 minutes of the first episode before thinking, 'if this fecking director opens yet another sequence with a crane/drone shot dropping down then panning I'm offsy. He did. So I did. I'd nearly turned off at the awfully clumsy WE ARE DOING EXPOSITION FOR THE CAMERA moment when the Owen Wilson character pointlessly, slowly, one by one, opened the JSA secret files in the trunk and held them up for us to see. Laboriously name-checking the villains he hadn't bothered laboriously namechecking at the start of the show because he was too busy laboriously namechecking the soon to be dead superheroes as they were killed.
