Earlier this week, or maybe late last week, I found out that two Arrowverse shows have not been renewed for new seasons.
The programmes are Batwoman and DC's Legends of Tomorrow.
As I have written in the past, I disliked Batwoman. So, no big loss to me. In regards to the latter - I have watched Legends each week and - even though I have been committed to following it - I am somewhat glad it's over.
Legends was great when it first began. It lost its way by being too cute a long time ago. It was time to cut bait.
Put it like this - if it had been renewed, it might have been me cutting bait before it reached a demise. I wrote, a couple of months ago, that it was becoming a chore to follow the DC shows.
I'll always recall a review I read of Legends which stated that the producers and writers attempt to purposely make it jump the shark each and every week. As soon as I read that notion, I was on board saying 'yes, they're so right!' yet - at that time - I was down with the fun stories.
The series became repetitive and unfunny over the last handful of years. It lost a lot of characters I had liked and the replacements didn't do anything for me. Just like other shows that became before it, and will come after, a point always arrives when there's that realisation that enough is enough.
This isn't a 'good riddance', it's a 'Thanks, but your time is up'.
