    Great! A DC show on the CW every night of the week needs to stop. Doubling up will be better for my personal life in the long run.

    • SAMURAI36

      Why on earth would every night need to stop?? Just get a DVR, & record everything. We get 3 DCTV shows on Monday, & I never miss a show.

    Ignoring the fact that Legends is about time travel, doesn’t this kinda mess up the fact that, chronologically speaking, the way the episodes run is Supergirl/Flash/Arrow/Legends.

    What if something happens on Legends that is a follow-up to something that happened on Arrow? It’ll happen before it should do.

    • SAMURAI36

      I doubt that’ll make much of a difference. Since these shows all have the same creative team, & since shooting takes place thru out the entire season, there’s no reason adjustments can’t be made mid-season, if necessary.

      This why I think it’ll land the Wed at 9pm slot next Fall.
      The crossover happens before the move so it won’t affect it much. Flash & Arrow has 23. Supergirl has 22 while Legends only has 17 eps. It’ll be the 1st one to air its finale.
