TVAD Writers Room: Review of Arrow’s “Collision Course” and roundtables for The Flash and Black Lightning!
With most of The CW’s superhero shows back in action, the TVAD writers were busy once again! In case you missed it, be sure to read our review of Arrow’s “Collision Course.”
“The Black Siren/Quentin and split team storylines both escalate and finally have real consequences. Unfortunately, those consequences come at the expense of the characters. “Collision Course” introduces some new elements to the story that may become interesting at a later date but until then we’re left wondering what the point of all of this betrayal and infighting actually is.”
Our roundtable for The Flash, on the other hand, raved about the quality of “Enter Flashtime.” Black Lightning also did quite well with our roundtable guests. You don’t want to miss what they had to say about “Equinox: The Book of Fate.”
