    I rewatched the finale because I was in and out of the room on a phone call during the airing. I think they missed a great opportunity to mimic the ending of the Crisis comic and give fans more of what they wanted.

    Routh's Superman (who was a Paragon before Lex swindled him) remembers the Anti-Monitor and/ or is somehow outside of time with no Earth to call home. He shows up to help the heroes, and strikes the final blow, just like Earth-Two Superman did in the comics. But his world, and his Lois is gone. Olliver/Spectre, acting like Alexander Luthor did in the comic, shows up and opens a portal, and out steps...Kate Bosworth's Lois Lane. Superman and Lois are reunited, and Oliver gets to say goodbye to Sarah, Flash, Supergirl, Diggle, etc, before departing for good with Lois and Supes into the void.

    It still gives Routh's Superman a happy ending, but takes him off the table so we don't have to constantly wish he'll show up and replace Tyler.

    A) NO Hawks! Hawkman & Hawkgirl were not represented at all, despite this being a "Crisis".

    B) DISRESPECT to Sargon the Sorcerer, making him a VILLIAN!

    C) the "Spectre" NOT LOOKING like the SPECTRE!!

    D) "Jim Corrigan" REALLY????

    E) so is there ANOTHER SPECTRE on Earth-2? With the JSA??

    F) the FREEDOM FIGHTERS? No representation???? At least have the RAY show up, but he didnt.

    G) is CAPTAIN COLD still alive???

    H) the ultimate INSULT: No PROFESSOR ZOOM? The one guy who you would figure is INVOLVED especially
    on the cosmic scale such as this and NO. Not there! And you know, that HE KNOWS what has gone on!!!

    I) Insult # 2, yeah sure, Earth-12 is OA and the Green Lanterns, but REALLY, a "COSMIC" Crisis and NOT ONE
    GREEN LANTERN showing up!?!?!?????? And is Earth-12 the ONLY Universe with Lanterns??? ***!!!!

    J) No LYNDA CARTER??????????? Was she asked????



    "SIGH"

    At least let there be a "Justice League" (series???) coming out of all of this!!

    A few possible reasons:

    B) DISRESPECT to Sargon the Sorcerer, making him a VILLIAN!
    Sargon was portrayed as a villain in Flash's comic in the late 60s. Blame Mike Friedrich.

    C) the "Spectre" NOT LOOKING like the SPECTRE!!
    They really dropped the ball on this one. Ollie looked like a homeless guy at worst, and Bruce Willis from Unbreakable and Glass at best.

    F) the FREEDOM FIGHTERS? No representation???? At least have the RAY show up, but he didnt.
    Wasn't the Ray shown dying with his world in part one? He's probably back now, though.

    H) the ultimate INSULT: No PROFESSOR ZOOM? The one guy who you would figure is INVOLVED especially
    on the cosmic scale such as this and NO. Not there! And you know, that HE KNOWS what has gone on!!!
    Yeah, that was a real headscratcher. Cavanaugh is right there, just put him in the suit for a few moments at least.

    I) Insult # 2, yeah sure, Earth-12 is OA and the Green Lanterns, but REALLY, a "COSMIC" Crisis and NOT ONE
    GREEN LANTERN showing up!?!?!?????? And is Earth-12 the ONLY Universe with Lanterns??? ***!!!!
    Worse for me, is we never got the pay off from last year when Barry Flash of Earth-90 (Shipp) saw diggle and asked him "Where's your ring", implying on his Earth, he's John Stewart.

    J) No LYNDA CARTER??????????? Was she asked????
    Yeah, I don't know how they didn't make that happen. She's been on Supergirl several times.

    I'm wondering if we're going from Crisis to 52.

    Okay, so my review should be an interesting experiment...

    I have NEVER watched a single CW show prior to Crisis. Not one. I just had to see this because of all the cameos and tie ins.

    So, please don't be angry with my ignorance... and I do mean that in the literal sense of the word. I don't know these characters. This is like watching Endgame first.

    Here's my random thoughts:

    It has a very '90s tone to it... the music, the acting. It feels like a throwback to 20 years ago.

    I LOVE that they call them Super Heroes in the script. I like that they are unafraid to use the word Crossover too. There's an honesty that is refreshing.

    The costumes are mostly terrific. Very colorful and fun!

    I like Supergirl and Batwoman the best, based on their performances in this. I know Flash is very popular, but these were not the episodes to win me over.

    The CW Superman... is a mistake. Almost unfathomable.

    I agree with Earth2Chris... Brandon Routh is a TREASURE. It breaks my heart that we've gone 15 years after Superman Returns, and we could've had him in a series of Superman adventures all this time. He is a missed opportunity. The guy just lights up the screen with heart and he's a joy to watch. I almost want to re-watch Superman Returns again. What a shame. Please, somebody make him a full time Superman. The only actor worthy of wearing the cape post Reeve.

    For an outsider, the supporting characters were very confusing. Seemed to be more than one Maria Hill type character supporting them. That's on me for not watching.

    Was Brainy Brainiac? He was in it, and then he wasn't. Quirky, but not really likable.

    I wasn't sad about Oliver Queen. He seemed kinda glum, and not fun to watch.

    The Anti-Monitor's flying Death Eater characters... seemed to disintegrate quite easily. But props for trying.

    Unpopular Opinion: Although TV Flash has a better costume, Justice League Movie Flash is more entertaining and fun to watch.

    The last scene delivers what I have ALWAYS wanted from live action DC. I wonder how far they will take that. Loved the musical cue.


    So... the event television that got me to tune in was fine, but for me unremarkable. I guess I would've rather they'd used the story opportunity to REALLY clean house and reboot the movies and television cast under one house. Now that would've really been something. Not sure if there are legal reasons or whatever, but that is what I think we'd all want.

    I don't have any desire to go back and watch any of the preceding programs.

    A reference to "the Scarecrow incident" in the most recent Batwoman is prompting speculation that Batman Begins, and thus the Nolan Trilogy, are in the past for that character. If they keep these Easter eggs going, we can account for all live action versions at least.
