    Umm cringy isn't the wording I would use.

    Unpleasant and mysogonistic is more fitting.

    If I have to explain why, then it isn't worth it. Should be common sense.

    It's self explanatory.

    Yeah, you'd think it'd be common sense, but what about Nick Cannon? How is he still employed by his company with the shit he said? Way worse than Sawyer's posts (from years ago).

    I had to look up who Cannon is, but could it be that he's higher-ranked in the relevant organization? I gather he created one of the shows he still hosts, so maybe that gives him more job security there. Or maybe it's a function of how his coworkers feel? I seem to recall some statements from Sawyer's colleagues that they felt hurt and betrayed on learning of his comments. Maybe they just don't want him back.

    Or maybe it's because so much of The CW's target audience consists of the groups Sawyer's old comments insulted, and because the network plays up inclusiveness and social activism as a key part of its brand. I don't know how the audience considerations might differ for FOX or MTV or whatever, though.

    If I recall, it was ONE colleague that complained that he/she was "uncomfortable" with (was it) 10 year old Twitter posts.
    The rest, i gather, had to fall in line, since he/she is an OG co-star.

    One who did so publicly. I daresay most conflicts and controversies within any given business are handled privately, and public statements are the exception rather than the rule. What we see of the behind-the-scenes business of any show is merely the tip of the iceberg. Which is why the decisions made in the industry often seem cryptic or arbitrary to us. We just don't have the whole story.

    I was waiting for some kind of explanation for the Hydrogen, as in that the blimp was loaded with H so it could be used as a weapon. It never came.

    As for the stadium, you are right especially in the sense that STAR labs appeared in the very next shot. It was also weird to me because the rest of the city was CGI--and when the blimp pulled away from the stadium it looked like it was going to hit a building.

    So true: one has idealized versions of us, one has disappointing real life people...

    Yeah, she was in jail for a solid week or two for all that assault, kidnapping and attempted murder.

    So Sue is finally back, and it looks like she'll be around for a while (with Ralph being conveniently "busy" somewhere else). I'm so sick of the cliche of easily circumvented laser security grids (nobody actually uses lasers in security systems, precisely because they are so easy to get around), but this was entertaining because of the way they poked fun at the cliche by turning it into a dance -- and because Natalie Dreyfuss looked really sexy doing it. Also, it looked like they did it with genuine lasers rather than VFX, which was a nice bit of on-set choreography.

    Sue referenced the DeMatteis Academy of Dance, no doubt a nod to prolific comics/animation writer J.M. DeMatteis, though I'm not sure why they name-dropped him specifically. Anyway, Ms. Dreyfuss mispronounced his name. I was introduced to him at NY Comic-Con once (by Keith DeCandido, I think), and as I recall, his name is pronounced "De-Matt-iss."

    Anyway, they've finally followed up on the Psycho-Pirate cameo in Elseworlds, but not in the way I was hoping. They used him to set up the Crisis, implying that he had a connection to the Monitor like in the comics, but then they just dropped that. I was hoping that the mask's return here would have some kind of a Crisis tie-in, maybe as a way of revealing to Team Flash that the multiverse still exists. But no, it was just an evil mask (that seemed to work like the Helm of Nabu, with a consciousness possessing its wearers).

    This episode did not do much for me. Seeing Sue was nice. Poor Ralph. He just gets name dropped. Crazy-Cecile in the mindscape was freaky. Chester accidentally catching Barry and Iris getting it on was cringey.
