    I feel kinda vindicated by them being probably the best thing about the show now, because during that long mediocre stretch in the first season, the first sign of any life/compelling stuff at all was the episode in which they were in danger (some thing about them having to jump from a plane, if I remember correctly). I remember thinking at the time that the show should focus more on them.
    Midnight Run (1988) - 9
    The Smiling Lieutenant (1931) - 8.5
    The Adventures of Robinhood (1938) - 8
    Sisters (1973) - 6.5
    Shin Godzilla (2016) - 7.5

    I work in grocery. I have not gotten sick. My fellow employees have not gotten sick. If the virus were even remotely as contagious as its being presented as, why havenít entire store staffs who come into contact with hundreds of people per day, thousands per week, all falling ill in mass nationwide?

    It's the name of an arc. This season is divided into three shorter arcs: Ghost Rider, LMD, and Agents of Hydra.
    Midnight Run (1988) - 9
    The Smiling Lieutenant (1931) - 8.5
    The Adventures of Robinhood (1938) - 8
    Sisters (1973) - 6.5
    Shin Godzilla (2016) - 7.5

    I wish more network shows with 22-24 episode orders employ this format they did. It was like getting three excellent miniseries with no filler episodes. Flash in particular desperately needed something like it this dumb season.

    Trying to decide if that was the best season of this show so far. Not sure if anything in there quite tops the Gemma-stranded-on-another-planet arc, but in general it might have been the best yet.

    It's certainly the most consistently great season.

    Terrific finale. [

    Ghost Rider was even doper than before.

    Yeah it's definitely my favorite season overall. Being able to do multiple storylines really helped.

    Too rushed a finale trying to wrap up all three arcs at once (I feel like they give Aida a little too limp an ending), but nonetheless still a pretty good capper to a great season. I may like the emotional core (and especially Kyle Maclachlan) of Season 2 a bit more, but overall this one is side-by-side up there with it for me.

    Was really hoping they weren't going to go the Ultron route when they introduced Ada. There may be a twist coming up, but on episode 9 ATM.

    OKay finally finishing Agents of Hydra arch. 3 more episodes in Season 4 (finally). This season totally took me out of the groove back in December 2017.

    I really lost interest during the Agents of Hydra arch. I'm on Season 5 now and back into it.
