|Oh hey Diggle.|
Top of the list, though, has to be the decision to play Harry’s mental deterioration for not just laughs, but for WACKY laughs. This isn’t what people meant when they said the show needed a lighter tone, fuckwits. See also, Camille channeling a surfer dude pizza delivery guy, bringing the number of awful stereotypes employed for hacky comedic purposes this season to something like fifty million.
Also, what was the point of any of this? They spent like three episodes figuring out how to destroy one satellite and then whee Devoe takes over the Star Labs satellite and triggers his Dumb Ray anyway. Great. Thanks for wasting our time.
Also, is it a Dumb Ray or isn’t it? Because in the previews for the finale they show a catastrophe due to technology failing, because, wait, what? I thought people were just going to be made dumb so they couldn’t use it or wouldn’t want to?
Also, I thought the whole fucking point of bringing Earth X Snart back was to make Barry deal with the death of Ralph Dibny, but no, he’s still dealing with it.
Also, STOP SENDING FUCkING TEAM FLASH MEMBERS TO THAT FUCKING THERAPIST IT WAS NEVER GREAT AND DIMINISHING RETURNS IS A THING.
You know how bad Flash has gotten? A while back, three episodes into season 2 of Legends of Tomorrow, I quite the series because it was too dumb to live. ON a whim, I went back and watched episodes 4 and 5 of Season 2, and they weren’t bad at all. And since there’s no way in hell the show’s quality somehow changed at exactly the point I quit watching it, I have to assume that The Flash is now much, much worse than Legends of Tomorrow was when I gave up on it. ANd that’s terrifying.
