We’ve never had a double dose of The CW’s DC shows on the same night. That’s about to change with back to back episodes of The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow on Tuesdays starting at 8/7c.
I mean, don’t get me wrong I totally get spreading out the superhero shows over several days, but I’m glad these two series have been paired up. It’s just cool to hangout in that world for a while, rather than having to wait a day or two for the next DC show to air. I’m curious to see if folks will make an event of Tuesday nights and tune in LIVE. We’ll find out soon enough.
While The Flash has become a little frustrating with all the time travel back and forth, Legends of Tomorrow has really found its groove this season. It’s not so much about having to follow a “timeline,” but simply enjoying our heroes’ crazy adventures when they arrive in whatever time period. That said, The Flash does have the stronger ensemble and its serialized storytelling keeps us coming back each week. It’s absolutely still my favorite.
Which series are you enjoying the most? Do you watch all the The CW’s DC shows like I do? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.

LOST MEMORIES — When Damien Darhk (guest star Neal McDonough) and Malcolm Merlyn (guest star John Barrowman) try to capture Rip Hunter in 1967, they create an Aberration big enough to draw the attention of the Legends. However, when the team arrives they discover that Rip has no memories of his past due to “time drift” and is just a graduate film student. After trying to convince Rip of who he was, they discover that he possesses an incredibly powerful artifact known as the Spear of Destiny, which the Legion of Doom is after. Ray and Nate realize that the Aberration has also affected them personally making it difficult to help the team. Meanwhile, Rory asks Stein for help and makes him promise to keep it a secret from the team. Caity Lotz, Franz Drameh and Maisie Richardson-Sellers also star.
