Im new to doing this sort of stuff. Well here goes.

I am a big fan of both the Flash and Arrow and have watched every episode to date. There hasn't been one episode that I didn't enjoy and I am very envious of the manner in which the writers and producers tell their story. However I am not somebody who has read the comic books (It isn't as big in my country as perhaps the US). I really enjoyed Arrow Season 1 (not saying i hate Season 3, but there was just something about Season 1 that probably makes it my favourite Season in a tv show ever). Arrow Season 1 stuck to a more realistic approach, for instance dealing with villains like the Triad, Bertinelli family, Dodger and Malcom Merlyn as the Dark Archer whereas now in Season 3 meta-humans from the Flash universe are being incorporated into the Arrow storyline. Now with a second crossover event in the Flash looming (by the way that promo for the next episode pretty much gave me a rough idea of what would happen in 'Public Enemy'), am I the only one that feels like bringinger the together characters like Firestorm and Green Arrow (League of Assasins Arrow more like it) pushing it and making it far too unrealistic. If Barry has called Oliver for help to assist him with the drama occurring in Central City, then why hasn't Oliver asked for Barry's help in a number of situations, for example;

-fighting Raas Al Ghul in the trial by combat ( Barry wouldve been to fast for Raas)

- Instead of rocking up to Diggles in 'Public Enemy' and declaring he has nowhere else to go, couldnt Barry have rescued him and zoomed him out of Starling City.

By saying that however I understand the writers obviously wouldn't go for something like this and regardless of whether they keep doing crossovers between the two television shows I will continue to watch and enjoy whatever the writers have in store of us.  feel free to Share your thoughts on this topic.
