    Fun episode tonight, I especially loved the old school title card.

    I do really miss when the four DC CW shows would each open a night, Monday through Thursday, though. By the time I get around to this on overstuffed Tuesdays, I'm dozing off and on through the hour.

    I fully understand why they chose the film actress they did.
    Unfortunately throughout the episode, a voice in my head kept saying “that’s Hedley”

    This week's show was a hoot, and actually informative. Never really followed Ms. LeMar's career (That's not HEADLY), was very surprised to know she was a science genius as well as a stunningly beautiful actress. What a great show this continues to be, week in and week out.

    One thing I forgot to mention last night: This episode was the first confirmation we've gotten that Themyscira exists on Earth-1 and therefore Wonder Woman could make an appearance in the Arrowverse down the road.

    I noted that as well, genius way to introduce the Wonder Woman mythology for a possible arc in the future.

    This was a terrific episode, loads of fun. Of course, it was great to see the Wonder Woman reference at the end. Let's hope that's not all we see of it.

    One thing: Sarah and Darhk have to stop fighting to the death every time we see them. Otherwise, it's another "Whoops, he got away again!"

    Anyone know how many episode the show will have this season? IMDb lists 18, which is one more than last season (which was one more than the season before). Any idea why it's always a shorter season than the other Arrowverse shows?

    Also, is Supergirl having a shorter season? IMDb only lists 15 season 3 episodes.

    Given that the crossover this year is literally one 160-minute movie split into four parts, I really hope that they include the entire crossover in each of the season Blu-Rays.

    The CW only programs 10 hours of primetime a week, which is significantly less than the 18 hours that the Big Three (CBS, NBC, ABC) program and even the 13 hours that FOX programs. As a result, they program roughly half their schedule like a broadcast network with 22-23 episodes and the other half like a cable network, with two slates of shorter seasons. "Arrow", "The Flash" and "Supergirl" are programmed like broadcast shows, while "Legends of Tomorrow" (along with the upcoming "Black Lightning") is on the long side of the cable show programming model.

    In an excellent, in-depth Collider interview with co-showrunner Marc Guggenheim, it was confirmed that this season is 18 episodes. Given the unique production challenges of the show, with a large ensemble cast with no clear lead and only one standing set, "18 is probably the most we can do. It's a very, very, very ambitious show, even compared to the other shows because of the ensemble nature.”

    "The budget's pretty similar to the other super-powered shows, it's just the production challenges are” greater than the other series. "Every week we have to create a new time period. And every week we've gotta have all of these different kind of super powers on display. On 'Flash,' he's just running fast. On 'Supergirl' she’s flying. But we've got three characters who fly and ... in Thawne last year we had a guy who was running fast, and ... the nature of the show is, you've got all of the different visual effects gags that all the shows do combined, plus time travel, plus historical accuracy, plus new costumes, new locations. It's madness."

    I couldn't find a confirmed episode count, but I'm almost certain that it will be 20-23 episodes. I think IMDB only shows 15 because episode 15 is the episode they're working on right now. None of the stuff I've read about episode 15 describes it as the season finale.

    I thought last night's episode was really stellar. Gorilla Grodd as king of the jungle smack dab in the middle of the Vietnam War is a concept that is too delicious to resist.

    But the real power of the episode was Mick coming face to face with his father. This is a man who tormented and abused him as a child, and whom he in turn murdered via arson. Mick had a very strong opinion of what kind of man his father was, and that played heavily into his feelings about the maybe-accidental fire that burned down his childhood home, with both parents still inside. The version of Mick's father we meet here isn't a good man, per se, but he isn't the burnt out monster that Mick thought him to be either.

    I'm kind of rooting against them finding a way to make Jax solo Firestorm. I'd much rather they use Stein's pending departure as an opportunity to add another crew member and give Firestorm a different dynamic. If they brought on Gehenna as the new second half of Firestorm, that would balance out the team with four males and four females.

    Next week, these ongoing storylines take a break as the Legends of Tomorrow pay a visit to 2017 for the Wedding of Barry Allen and Iris West. An extended trailer:

    The older Brandon Routh gets, the more he looks like Superman -more than Henry Cavill ever will.
