    So if you're a bad guy, you provoke him and then skedaddle for 61 minutes.

    No worse than defeating Aquaman with a dehumidifier.

    It was explained last night that his power will only last an hour. And did I miss something? Why did they make that truck stop and possess the driver and kill the other?

    Honestly, in general DC TV shows are pretty bad that losing 10 minutes of them is probably not going to hurt anything at all (and in some ways could help an episode that otherwise feels like it's dragging out). It's hardly like the producers have really ever cared that much about consistency or continuity or even tying up plot lines. It's probably more likely we'll see flexible episode timing come to the broadcast networks (e.g., providing for full creative expression to not be forced to a specific runtime) as it's basically been on cable networks for many years.

    Finally got curious enough to figure out why the theater on Main Street in Blue Valley, Nebraska, was called the Dallas... and it's because the exteriors are filmed in the town of Dallas, Georgia (about 35 miles west of Atlanta). Looks like in real life, the Dallas Theater is a performing arts/concert venue, not a movie theater.

    They haven't had to cut 10 minutes (or probably much of anything) since the second episode...

    It's a piece of equipment (a broadcast dish) that the ISA needs for some reason. They hijacked it.

    So the school janitor appears to be someone we need to keep an eye on.

    I'm wondering if he's Sir Justin.
    Or the Shade.

    Any idea when the decision to air simultaneously on DC Universe and CW was made? I wonder if they are purposely making the episodes shorter so they don’t need to be edited for CW?

    I wouldn't have minded if they had cut a minute or two from the party sequence.

    Wikipedia says that filming began in March 2019. On 21 November 2019, it was announced that the series would air on the CW a day after its DCU showing---there's no way to know when the decision was made, but I would imagine that it was after filming had begun (at least for the pilot)

    I haven't checked this week's episode yet but the previous two had a minute or so cut.

    Someone with such an obviously fake beard must be a person of interest.

    That reminds me of Radcliffe's line from Agents of Shield: "I can tell by your mustache that you're a man of importance and not to be trifled with"

    In this case it would be, "I can tell by your beard that you're a man of importance and someone to keep an eye on."

    Sportsmaster had me laughing. Where does he keep all of his weapons?

    I think I would enjoy a crossover between this show and Legends Of Tomorrow.

    I quite enjoyed these interpretations of Sportsmaster and Huntress and it seemed quite believable (within the realm of the show) that they would be able to battle Courtney and company that effectively.

    (Although shouldn't Pat already be suspecting "Crusher" of being the Sportsmaster?)

    Pro tip to Rick: Just holding the car over your head isn't that effective.

    I'm glad Pat mentioned the ring.
    They've certainly given Alan Scott's Power Battery a fair amount of attention but where's his ring?
