Here's something to consider for anyone who thinks cancellation of shows they don't like (but which are still capable of treading water in this ever expanding marketplace of not-so-valuable screen time) is a good idea. The television production community is still highly nepotistic and insular, so when a program is cancelled the people involved are not likely to be seeking work as lumberjacks. Those same people whose work you do not like on the existing show will move elsewhere, either creating another program which you will probably dislike just as much, or worse, they'll be brought aboard programs you do like, with transforming effect. The best option, I believe, which the aforementioned expanding television media landscape is making possible, is to live and let live. Anything that can support itself by some means (even if it comes down to direct viewer subscription ala Trailer Park Boys/Swearnet), should be allowed to continue for as long as the producers and talent involved wish to do so. The next step is targeted content filtering technology so that we can individually eliminate the things we don't like from our personal environments. That concept has already been proven to a degree by Kardblock.

first what a fucking season finale i mean booooooooooooooooooom best ever in my opinion, second here is my theory about the whole Eddie killing himself and erasing wells, i mean if erasing him(Eobard) changes the time line then this time line never exists, because this timeline only exists because Eobard killed Barry's mother so if it changes things then Eddie is not dead Barry becomes the flash Eobard becomes the reverse and this whole thing happens again it will be a time loop, so i think this will only erase Eobard from this point on and this time line stays the same, or second it creates a new reality where barry is still the flash, married to iris but there is no reverse and the particle accelerator will be built and run successfully by the real wells what i do not know is how barry gets his power, what happes to cisco, Katelyn, roonie, and the others we know from the trailer for legends of tomorrow that fire storm is created which means the particle accelerator was created and blew(i do not know where fire storm is created in the comics so maybe i might be wrong), and it did not change other realities like arrow and atom. so because of that i think my first theory is right and nothing major changes and eboard is erased from this on, i mean why would future flash stop preset one if not for this ( or maybe the future one is from the time after Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox the cartoon movie). and Joe And Barry Best relationship on TV ever so awesome.
Ya canceling the tomorrow people honestly just made me not care to watch the CW anymore and same goes with most of my friends...... It was one of the sickest shows you guys came out with then you just end it....
Need a lot more background stories on the other characters.
I say its equally as good as Flash was these season. But you can't actually compare those shows as they are completely different and the same story structure as Flash has will simply hurt the show. Remember Flash is a Superhero show AoS is not.
It's not about the type of show, it's about consistency. Flash had a solid season because it was mapped out from the start. AoS leaves too much wiggle room which makes certain events feels random.
I agree, AOS is just as good as Flash or Arrow (Gotham is CLEARLY the worst of the bunch). From a production standpoint, all 3 are very similar, IMO. I would say the fight sequences in season 2 for Shield exceeded anything Arrow or Flash did this year (my caveat to this is about 6 or so episodes behind on Arrow -as I started watching season 1 to make more sense)). As you say the 2 aren't comparable as Flash is a superhero show, Shield hasn't been, which means to me that Flash is a easier sell than Shield, simply everyone loves orgins and superpowers, people love to experience learning the powers with the hero. It's very thrilling, AOS hasn't been able to tap into that (thought it started to by the end of the season.) As I'm going to watch the Flash Season Finale tonight, I don't know how much lustre the show is going to have now that the BIG mystery is gone about his mother and reverse flash's motives. Maybe they'll do something spectacular, The freak of the week format would get old without that overarching story thread of mystery we had this year.
I loved the heart to hearts, they were so heart warming and reminded us how Barry has been important to all these people. I can feel his connection with Joe and I agree with what he told Iris; he has had a good life, Joe was a good father to him. Then Cisco had his talk with Eobard, we can still love him when we want to hate him, and then came the good byes. There is so much love between Barry and Joe that it also breaks his heart if he is to lose Joe. I was satisfied with the finale. I can't wait for the next season.
Well I like to point out something, I don't know most noticed it but before Wells (Thawne) sat into the "time machine", there was a metal helmet with two yellow wings thrown out of the wormhole, which is actually the helmet of the First Flash (Jay Garrick) i.e. The Flash From Earth Two dimension of the DC Universe.
I wondered about that! I knew it was a Flash helmet, but I was curious about why THAT was Eobard's cue to leave. I wonder how much it's going to play into next season.
Maybe Reverse Flash knew that staying too long could allow another Flash to appear. He wouldn't want to face another Flash so soon.
I noticed Hari ...which is why I think flash going for that impossible mission may b helped by Jay Garrick........I still don't like d ending.....but we must wait.
I enjoyed this finale, more likely because the dialogues felt natural and so very heartfelt. especially the one between Barry and Henry. I'll miss Eddie, he changed everything, he put everyone else before his life...a great hero gesture indeed!
Eddie was treated worse than a homeless man gone dumpster diving for dinner only to be told that he would be arrested for vagrancy. We'll tell you who the Flash is, but you must lie to Iris and not tell her, at which point she walks away from you for lying to her. And of course his "distant relative" Eobard tells him that his life is of little consequence, (it isn't) because he kills himself to erase Eoboard, but it's was Barry's screw up that created the present black hole that threatens to destroy planet Earth. Eobard was right about Eddie after all..............
I still would like to have seen Noah win it. Really there should have been three trophies this year.
This is why it is so hard to start new shows. It seems that good ones get cancelled in season 1. Hopefully another network picks it up.
