    Cisco Ramon

    If somehow Cisco's powers had an actual downside, even a minor one, I'd have been much more accepting of the idea. As it is Cisco had powers that didn't harm him or anyone else around him that he's been able to control perfectly for a long time now and he could simply stop using if he didn't want to be Vibe anymore. Cisco had literally no reason to want his powers gone and all he's doing is just eliminating options for him to take. If the writers actually did do this to get Vibe out of the way for the Crisis or any other thing that could happen it's even more nonsensical. They've already got a guy that can run so fast he can make a nuclear explosion look like it's standing still from his perspective for about an hour, a guy who can create portals and fire energy blasts barely even is a step up from a normal man with a bow and arrows in how much he can break the plot by existing after that.

    S04.E14: Nip/Stuck

    They did mention in passing that they got the coats from Leonard apparently having a stash on the ship that they still had. Apparently Constantine didn't have the IQ points to seal the hell portal as he was going through it, or Neron would've not gotten his precious Tabitha (the Fairy Godmother being her was PERFECT) back. Just first impressions here but to Constantine's benefit at least Hell doesn't seem to look any worse than New Jersey. Also apparently a demon can't just give the soul of a body they've taken over back or I'd have expected Neron to at least offer an exchange. Gary the haunted nipple hypnotist could only happen on at show like this and actually work. About damn time Mona actually did something useful, she wouldn't be half as annoying as she is if she'd actually do something worthwhile on a consistent basis.

    S04.E13: Egg MacGuffin

    Come on, this is Legends of Tomorrow, they won't just get a dragon. The dragon will be some little hawk sized thing that instantly bonds with Mick (because who else would get along famously with a fire breathing creature) that Mick gives some really ridiculous and possibly cute sounding name, which Mick has rip things apart because dragon. Besides, the Legends haven't had a Team Pet the entire run of the show.

    S04.E12: The Eggplant, The Witch & The Wardrobe

    Well, last episode I saw that musical number with that Hindu god guy whose name escapes me right now and my thought was "Music Meister this guy ain't." It's almost like my brain could see into the future, because when Music Meister showed up in a Flash/Supergirl crossover show it was for the sake of abruptly getting the main couples of both shows together after they had broken up for incredibly stupid reasons. The Sara/Ava plot definitely from the start I had the feeling that it existed for the same purpose, getting Sara and Ava back together, but this one was a LOT more sensible in it's approach. Through Ava's torments it took a look at each aspect of Sara and Ava's potential future together and had the two plot a course through them. That said, I was surprised that Ava's personal purgatory didn't have a Fake Sara or two tormenting her, that would have made things more interesting. Besides, who wouldn't want to see a Sara Vs. Sara fight? The rest of the episode... Nora and Constanine's plan to destroy Neron was predictable once it started, but it was a smart one and just believable enough I could buy Neron falling for it. Naturally nobody decided to tell Ray what was going on so he could ruin said plan and keep the villain around for the rest of the season, but hey. I'm just shouting into an echo chamber with this. I don't hate Mona but this episode was when she started to grate, egging Zari on with the ridiculous Nate/Zari relationship plot, as though it's not possible for male and female characters who happen to not be in a relationship already to just... stay not in a relationship and have to hook up. On that note, I haven't particularly noticed or cared up until now because he's hilarious, but when's the last time Mick actually DID anything? The last time I can remember that Mick actually contributed to the plot in any way and didn't just sit around stuffing his face and making snarky comments was that giant squid episode.

    S04.E18: Crime and Punishment (2019.04.21)

    I think even someone so stupid they can barely even figure out which side of the gun goes where in real life wouldn't be that stupid. However, people shooting (or in the case of the prisoners punching) a nearly invincible superhero despite the fact that it should be widely known that they are an all but invincible and even see it themselves and continuing to do so is a trope older than superheroes themselves. Since it's happened to Superman himself a million times I'm not surprised to see it. That doesn't mean it isn't incredibly ridiculous and should have been phased out decades ago, but there you go. On that note, I was expecting (or at least hoping) that Otis had pumped Kryptonite into the prison or SOMETHING to actually make the scenario with the prisoners seem half plausible. I can see Otis just did that to slow Supergirl down but the prisoners had no excuse. Another time tested (AKA REALLY stupid and long since overdone) superhero trope. When the superhero is framed EVERYBODY except a select few will always believe the superhero is guilty from the first accusation thrown, no matter how much good they have done or how many dozens or even hundreds of times it's happened and been disproven before. Some superheroes even spend as much time running from the police/military/even other superheroes as they do actually helping people as a result of this happening to them over and over and over again, Spider-Man come to mind. At least Spider-Man has the excuse of having a constant smear campaign being run against him his entire existence, but Supergirl?

    MacGyver (2016)

    Anyone else utterly SICK of Murdoc? The guy should have been killed a half dozen times by now and if nothing else had no ability to escape. It's annoying enough when comic books do it but this is a show that at least pretends to be semi-realistic.

    S04.E17: All About Eve (2018.03.31)

    I had to laugh at this, since looking at even a couple years worth of Superman comics eight attempts by Lex to kill Jimmy means they're best friends for life by comparison in this continuity. It's something the writers put in place for the sake of drama that could have been completely avoided had anyone on the show not been an idiot, pure and simple. I could see maybe Kara and J'onn (speaking of which, have they established if J'onn mindwiping someone is permanent or not?) leaving Alex in the dark for a few weeks to ensure the heat is off, but it's been pretty far pass the point where her continued ignorance is justified for a good while now. I could also buy that J'onn put in a mental block to keep Alex from figuring out Kara is Supergirl despite the blatant evidence that Alex at least should notice, but they haven't established that so it just makes Alex look like an idiot for not figuring it out. How else could they keep J'onn out of the following episodes so he's not around to solve the entire plot in 2 minutes? The excuses they keep coming up with just get more and more ridiculous. So much so that at this point as much as I generally like the character I'd rather they just kill him off we don't have to keep dealing with this. Another thing I had to laugh at due to the comics, since saying Jimmy in the comics has gotten powers and then lost them every other issue he's appeared in wouldn't be too much of an exaggeration. Though in this case I'd rather he get powers and then actually keep them so he would stop being pointless dead weight as he's been throughout the entire show.

    S04.E15: O Brother, Where Art Thou?

    How about BraiNia? Yeah, I figured that Lex was behind the shooting pretty much since the promo, and manipulating Lena into testing the super serum as the motive became pretty obvious once they started talking about the stuff. Lex does those kind of things and Lena was pretty stupid for falling for it, but Lex did pretty effectively maneuver her into a situation where she had no choice but to finish and use the super serum regardless of whether Lena knew Lex was manipulating her or not. I would have found it more believable if Lena had known that and threw in some counter moves that Lex blew through anyway, rather than as it is where she fell for it hook line and sinker, she should be too smart for that. Of course, the best liars tell the truth.
  9. If Lala coming back again wasn't for the sole purpose of having someone around to kill Tobias at the end in order to keep the Jefferson family's hands clean I'd be surprised. Because of course the heroes could never kill the villains! That would make too much sense.

    S04.E12: Menagerie (2019.02.17)

    My problem with the breakup is it hinges on James having a rather nonsensical reaction. Lena said the government wanted to use her human enhancement project, not that she had agreed to it. Yet James acted like Lena had just told him that she was going through with it already. If anything, James' attitude pushed Lena to accepting the government contract when she otherwise wouldn't have. The government of the Supergirl universe has already demonstrated it has rocks for brains. What with having Supergirl in their palm of their hand for the past 4 years when they decided to be remotely reasonable and would have continued to if they had stayed that way instead of becoming obsessed with making Kara say how high when they said jump. As others have said, there's no way the government is not going to use Lena's enhancement project to make supervillains. Hell, I would put money on them doing it in the stupidest manner possible, like using complete psychopaths as test subjects. Maybe the writers could throw us a bone and have James get enhanced somewhere along the line so he can go back to being Guardian plus not being completely useless, but I wouldn't hold my breath.
  11. The School Board simply not getting another Principal for Garfield, that much I buy. Considering what a hellhole Freeland is not to mention the widely publicized PR and literal disasters at the school I highly doubt there's a Principal or potential Principal on the planet willing to take the job. That, and promoting a current teacher of Garfield to the position would probably be pointless since they all back Jefferson, making him the de facto Principal anyway.

    S05.E14: Cause and XS

    The same reason that Barry can run fast enough to make a nuclear explosion look like it's standing still for an hour yet can't use that same speed to effortlessly defeat any villains he comes across. It's because if either of them did any given episode would be over in 5 minutes. It's the reason I didn't mind the fact that the Big Bads of the first 3 seasons were evil speedsters, at least then I didn't spend each episode constantly thinking that Barry could defeat the Big Bad in literally less than 2 seconds if that. In fact, I'd love to see an episode about another good guy speedster who spends most of the episode effortlessly defeating one villain after another, all the while lecturing Barry about how easily he could be beating villains if he used his powers at even a fraction of what he's been shown to be capable of. I feel like they should at least massively depower Barry to roughly season 1 levels sometime in the near future and keep him that way, it would make everything a lot more bearable. The real reason is because if Nora did tell Team Flash about Cicada after at most the first 1 or 2 times she went back, then the episode would've been over, or at least with how bad the writers are they wouldn't have had the competence to make the episode last longer. It would have been easy enough to do and still have the episode go for as long as it did. If Nora told the team even if Nora subsequently failed a few more times she would have had Team Flash around to come up with ideas and as backup for the fight making it much much more likely she'd succeed and much much sooner than she did. These DC superhero shows are TERRIBLE at making season long Big Bads, the reason being all of them could have been defeated at least a half a dozen times throughout the season had the protagonists simply not been total idiots or even outright LET them escape. This isn't the first time they let Cicada get away when they very easily could have gotten him this season and I doubt it'll be the last. Every single person Cicada kills after this is going to be the direct fault of Team Flash's stupidity.

    MacGyver (2016)

    I've seen this kind of thing before. Step 1: Endear the new guy/girl to the audience by making them a total badass the first episode/book/whatever they appear in. Step 2: Watch as the new guy/girl's competence sinks like a stone and they proceed to get more and more grating with each passing episode until the viewers end up despising them. Step 3: Remove said new character now that the viewers hate them. Step 4: Repeat until the series dies, likely after nearly every one of the original main characters is gone. I hope I'm wrong, I really do, but it happens way way too much when an established series brings in a new character, especially one that exists to replace another character that people liked.
  14. Wow, I didn't think Principal Obviously-A-Total-Dick-Just-So-Jefferson-Can-Get-His-Job-Back would ever end up having any valid points to make, but he did. Khalil is being treated as a saint all of a sudden despite all he had done just because he's dead, Jen DID just throw a "you're a racist" at Principal Dogfood (great name Perfect Xero) and dismiss anything and everything he said right out of the gate and continued to do so. Principle Dogfood also had a point to make that white people just as easily can end up have to crawl up from nothing just like any other race but nobody seems to care. It's one of those "Jerkass Has A Point" kind of moments. Too bad that in all likelihood everything Dogfood says is going to be thrown out of the window and he'll be shown as a generic over the top racist from this point on so that he causes enough problems to get booted so Jefferson becomes principal again. Here we go again with this storyline with Jen, the same old superhero storyline they've been doing pretty much since there has been superheroes. Jen's desire to waste Tobias already is and will be treated as her skirting the dark side because of revenge, because of course it's not remotely possible that Tobias has proven he is legally untouchable, that the only workable and reasonable way to deal with him is to put him down, and that he'll continue to hurt and kill people while the Pierces try to find a way to legally nail Tobias to a wall. If Jefferson had put a million volts through Tobias not long after the series started or even back when he first was Black Lightning years ago for that matter nearly every bad thing that had happened in this series would have never happened. That's the real reason for these "No Kill" rules, there wouldn't be a plot if the heroes were sane and put down the villains after the 20th time they caused mass death, suffering, and other crimes and got off scot free or broke out of prison. This kind of storyline has always sickened me, because rather than justifying not killing the villain it always just highlights the absurdity and points out all the reasons why the hero really should. It's one thing to go all Punisher and kill every random mugger you come across, it's quite another to kill someone like Tobias, who has gone out of his way to show and even rub in the face of the heroes the fact that he can't be dealt with any other way.
  15. Speaking of which, Cutter SOMEHOW manages to take down an entire FBI convoy of SWAT officers armed with a assault rifles with a... knife. Even if she's a Meta, which I can't remember, Cutter hasn't been built up to be anywhere near badass enough to make her taking all those cops out by herself believable. It's no wonder they didn't bother to actually show it, besides budget reasons. Could the police or in this case the FBI BE more blatantly useless? It would have been much easier to buy if like half the FBI had been working for Tobias and just shot the other half while Cutter provided the distraction. I thought a good part of the reason Tobias was after Khalil was he could have ratted on him, leaving him alive kinda means Khalil still can. On top of that (though I doubt they'll mention it) Khalil now has a nice piece of evidence in the form of a removed mechanical spine that should have Tobias' fingerprints all over it.
