I've been without TV or Internet for the past six weeks or so (give or take, I've kind of lost track) and haven't had a chance to see anything, including the new Arrowverse episodes.

I finally had an opportunity to catch parts of most of this. I'm on limited Internet access, so I'll make my comment short. I really didn't like Luke Fox. He felt like Curtis Holt on uppers. At first I had to stop and make sure they weren't the same character. I found myself asking if there was only one way these shows could write genius, behind-the-scenes, tech experts. I mean even Felicity had the same kind of hyper edge and delivery.

I'm liking all the ways this is different. All TV lesbians seem to be femme in ways it's obvious they are trying to avoid eliciting latent homophobia in the straight audience and -- even more annoyingly -- appealing to the male gaze, and it's always really pissed me off. This is a broadcast show, no less, and here they are even addressing how being closeted as a superhero is very different in this context.

May I say, though, that I can't stand the wig?

Hm, yeah, Luke is very similar to Curtis, but less fun (to me, so far).

I liked Reagan but she was so obviously DIsposable Girl of the Week in episode four it was like, why bother? We're just establishing this plot point that dating while Batting is hard, so....predictable. That said, I liked how Kate was all, "I've always been out, I said "yeah, so?" and then punched him," and then has to deal with this.

Damn, Catherine, faking someone's death so that the loved ones "move on." What monster have you wrought? One obsessed with Wonderland, rabbits, etc. I am amused at that as a theme, which makes me wonder what next season's theme will be.

Mary rocked it as posing as Alice. That amused me. "Oh, gee, I can't remember what my evil plan was, can you tell it to me?" I give her points.

I'm also enjoying Mary a lot, I hope she gets brought into Kate's secret life.
