The Flash Podcast Special Edition: Arrowverse Vs. The 22-Episodes Format
On a special edition episode of The Flash Podcast, Andy Behbakht, Tatiana Hullender, and Swara Salih get together to go deeper into one of the many subjects that have come up in Season 5: the 22-episodes format. As DC TV has been going on for several years, many of the DC shows have stuck to having 22 (23 for some of them) episodes every season which have its ups and downs for storytelling.
As this has been a vocal topic for the hosts throughout the last two seasons of the podcast, this week the gang gets into the pros and cons of the Arrowverse having so many episodes every year. How does it affect the shows in the long run when it comes to big bads, the ensembles as a whole? Would it benefit the Arrowverse to do shorter seasons? Throughout the discussion, the trio gets into those aspects for The Flash, but also Arrow, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow and other DC shows. That and more on this special edition of The Flash Podcast!
