Missing two Crossover Episodes for two other series
Reviewed in the United States on January 3, 2020
I'll admit that I haven't been a comic book fan, so I've never been into the super-hero genre. I decided to try this series because it sounded different than things like Superman, Batman, etc. It did start out being different (in a good way) in the first couple of seasons than what I expected. By this 4th season, things are getting pretty far into sci-fi mode with meta-humans and then aliens. But by now I'm hooked on the main characters and no one ever seems to really die - everyone seems to return in some way or other.
The main reason I gave this season a lower rating is because it includes the middle part of a three-way crossover with the first and last part of the crossover in two other shows. The other show episodes were not included in the DVDs for this season of Arrow. What the heck? There was a previous Arrow season with a crossover for the Flash series and both episodes were included in the Arrow DVDs. But not this time. So we don't get the start of the crossover story, we get the middle part of the story in the Arrow episode, and then get left hanging with no completion because the finale is an episode of another series. That's totally bogus!! I almost would have preferred that they skip putting the "partial" episode on the Arrow DVDs than to get this type of bait-and-switch. Obviously the manufacturer assumes you'll rush right out a buy the whole set of DVDs for the other series (and which seasons of those two series would they be in?). This should be illegal.
