Arrow had a messy first season
A great second season
A meh third season.

The Flash has had a GOAT first season.

Arrow made the necessary mistakes so that Flash could thrive.

It's not the series we deserve, but the one we needed.

It's a salient occurrence.

A watchable series.

I can agree to this.

It seems like an almost universal opinion at this point. Flash blows away all three seasons of Arrow, because the characters aren't moody idiots.

I think Flash is better then Arrow because Flash embraces its comic roots more then Arrow, which tries to be grounded, and introduces villains that are way too different from their comic selves in season 1(Firefly, Vertigo, Deadshot).

When I first watched Arrow season 1 and their version of Firefly, I was so dissappointed and worries that this show will be like this forever, butchering the characters and have nothing that I love about the comics, Season 2 was a tremendous improvement though. Arrow has had 2 variants of Count Vertigo, and they STILL got it wrong. That really pissed me off.

I mean, kinda feels like Flash is blowing its load in the first season to do so, but yeah. Doesn't hurt that their comic villains have costumes beyond "leather jacket" and superpowers other than "owns a machine gun".

The showrunners have been teasing Wally for season 2, among a few other things.

I found this to be a lot funnier than it should've been

At least they managed to fix Deadshot.
