Anyone watching Lethal Weapon? I love it! I think they are actually hindered being attached to the Lethal Weapon name. This could easily be a buddy cop show without the need to redo Lethal Weapon. But I am loving this modern day adaptation.

Ep 3 of TBL was simply spectacular. Included just about everything that makes it the best show on.

Empire lacking luster

Not impressed with Luke Cage this far.

Finished Shameless up to current season. Good stuff.

Very happy with Arrow premiere, minus the ending. I like the season 1 feel again. But of course they had to have Olicity teen angst. I wish Oliver would find Felicity's name on the list and put an arrow in her heart. Its so fucking annoying.

Flash was not good...not good at all. So far, Flashpoint has been handled horribly and had no affect on Arrow.

Oh...found a little piece of trivia....the guy playing the head officer in the new task force is played by John Ritter's son.

Season premiere of Flash sucked. Ep2 started to right those wrongs though

Arrow premiere worse than Flash. 100% filler nonsense.

Finally working through second half of PD season 3. Plenty of fun eps. Eager to get to that finale.

Ep2 of Flash worse than the first. How can you fix everything in 60 minutes?

Arrow ep 2 was solid as well. Loving the tone.

PD has been solid, but they havent addressed Voight and the finale. WTF?!

Watched ep 1 of Supergirl to see Tyler Hochelin as Superman. He was very good. I was happy. The show itself is decent and is filled with some great characters and plot points. I only have 2 bones to pick with the show. I dont like their version of Jimmy Olsen. I dont like the good looking, athletic, suave version. If they wanted Olsen to be black...Echo Kellum could have pulled it off much better. Olsen is so jacked he towers over Superman and looks like he should be a superhero. And dont get me started how that IS happening this season.

Rumors are that Hochelin did so well that Geoff Johns and Marc Guggenheim are campaigning DC for the ability to do a Superman show. 100% support it. A lot of critics said Hochelin is better than Cavill as he brings charm back to the character that Cavill's version does not have. They related Caviill's version to a brooding emo type. Brooding...yes. Emo? No.

The last thing and most hated part of Supergirl is Melissa Benoist. As an actesss, she is downright AWFUL! I despise how this character has been written to be nothing more than a female version of Superman. She rips open her shirt like Supes, her alter identity is awkward, clumsy and also wears the fake glasses. Its bad. Laura Vandervoot did a much better version in Smallville. This version also seems to have adjusted to Earth MUCH quicker.

Speaking of the writing, while the show is decent and the writing in general isnt bad....almost everything this bitch says is dumb. "I guess its time to go up, up, up and away?" WTF?!

And Melissa looks like plain jane, whether as Kara or as Supergirl. Nothing about her makes her attractive in either version. She has a horrible sense of fashion and yet is portrayed as this super prize that both Olsen and one of the other characters begin a love triangle with her.

I'm 10 episodes into Luke Cage. They really need to trim these episodes down. I'm sure that's why Stranger Things got so much traction, it was only 8 episodes, so it was a concise story.

Odd Couple premiered Monday. Meh. Nice to see Boyz II Men appear. But the show is meh at best and warrants a chuckle here or there. Surprised its still on.

Chicago Fire premiere was ok. Nothing all that great. Next episode looks better.

Supergirl Ep 2 was excellent again. Melissa continues to be the big weak link of the show. Clark went back to Metropolis, Cat is taking a leave of absence (looks like Flockhart is just exiting for probably a budget cut reason), Olsen is now running Cat Co. Olsen is just a complete and utter botch of a character at this point. I like Brooks and I think he does a fair job. He just doesnt do Olsen well. And I still want to club Melissa upside the head. She is absolutely horrible. Eva Marie is a better wrestler than Melissa is an actress.

This Is Us was fantastic again. The current story still teases what happened to the dad and Randall/William seems to be the best pairing on the show. Loved the realistic telling of how a regular old black guy still has to deal with racism no matter how he dresses or what he wears and how that man responds to it.

Arrow was excellent. My fav. of the season. I thought Cody Rhodes was solid. Not liking the new team though. Only Curtis do I really care for. Loved seeing Voight's (chicago pd) dead son appear as the new DA. That was cool. Dont like Quentin Lance being appointed Deputy Mayor.

Big Bang most enjoyable its been since season 5 or so

some of the worst TV collectively on of late

Blacklist has been extremely underwhelming
Gotham has prob been my fav of the averageness
Arrow & Flash both meh
SVU just SOS. Wish they'd just air that Trump Ep

Finally finished Legends of tomorrow season 1. Just mediocre to bad the entire way through. Will look at season 2 with the character changes but doubt it will improve.

I just finished season 3 of arrow- without question, the best of any show I watch..

Gotham has been decent although the Mad hatter storyline lasted a little too long..

Flash has been a little underwhelming..

Shockingly, loving DC Legends...its almost like a different show from last season...

This is Us was the weakest its been with this week's ep..

Survivor been okay...been enjoying deisgnated Survivor and Pitch a lot.

Woody hit the nail on the head. Izombie was far better than I expected. Finished both seasons in a few days.

Sadly...season 4 of Arrow is coming next for you and the show goes the route of a bad soap opera, team angst Dawson's Creek.

Flash has been bad.

Legends is off the DVR. I didnt think the team could get worse....but it did. Only care about Sara and Stein. The rest of the team is dumb. And whats with all these Marvel ripoffs? Diggle looked like Magneto. Ray looked like Iron Man. Now Steel looks like Captain America. WTF?! The crossover was pretty damn good. But felt that Oliver played too much of a background character to Barry.

This Is Us might be my favorite show on tv . Its so stellar. Seeing Randall tripping on mushrooms was hilarious and I loved how they used this as an opportunity to get Milo on screen with the Big 3.

Lanza....This Is Us....had the shock endings and twists....but it does start to mellow out of that.

What do you mean? The mid season finale went shock....but they passed through the shock after about the 3rd episode.

Arrow mid season finale was best episode of the season. AWESOME! Talk about a shock.
