    "This particular Batman series did a pretty good job at solving my problems with finding a DC-related show/series that was to my taste. Some might find the 60's Batman to be too different to the modern incarnation. I personally don't really agree, I find the modern Batman to be unnecessarily dark and gritty at times. I suppose each Batman is a representation of the how the world is at the time, though."

    "The next show born out of the Arrowserse TV universe takes on a more scientific approach compared to the more human and grounded Arrow show. I've always idolized Flash growing up and I'm happy to see him get a TV adaptation."

    "The show that started the entire Arrowverse TV universe. It's a dark and gritty take on the life and exploits of Oliver Queen and the fellow heroes and villains that he has come across throughout his time as the Green Arrow."

    "This show started out a little off. I already knew that there were plans to introduce a new show that operated within the whole Arrowverse series of shows but after watching a few episodes, it felt kinda convoluted. It's an interesting show and a team of heroes that just needs time to properly develop."

    "Out of all the shows in the Arrowverse, this was the one that I watched and waited for every week. We all love and know the Man of Steel's story by now so it's nice to see DC diverge into other stories such as the one of his lesser-known but equally awesome cousin."

    "This show is quite good. Dean Cain makes a great Clark/Superman. I for one love Smallville too, but this was the first Lois and Clark show I watched. Where as Smallville didn't have enough about Lois and Clark and that disappointed me. This one is definitely a good show. Yes it's a bit generic for 2017, but back then it was a great show. It has never disappointed me."

    "When you think of Gotham, you think of a certain caped crusader operating in the shadows dishing out vigilante justice. This show is not about him but rather the city that he is trying to protect and guard. I initially thought that a show without him the Dark Knight would not work but it really does. "

    "Lucifer is an awesome show. It's loosely based of the DC comic, but does so much more. It's quite a dark, thrilling TV show. I sit down with my wife every week and watch it when it's on. I couldn't recommend it anymore to a Marval fan than anyone else. It's a show for everyone. "

    "The start of this new DC TV show was a little underwhelming but give it a shot and it really develops into an interesting and dark take on one of the most iconic teams in the DC Universe. Definitely one of the best DC TV shows to have come out after the Arrowverse."
