As anyone who follows The CW's superhero shows (Arrow, Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow etc) knows every year they come together for a "crossover event", sharing a storyline between multiple shows... in the style of a comic book.
Every year they've got bigger and bigger, and this year's - Crisis On Infinite Earths - looks set to blow the roof off with its many guest stars (including some from earlier superhero shows from DC Universe and alternate comic book realities).
However, for viewers in the UK, it's beginning to look like this could devolve in to some hideous mess because of one show in particular.
This year saw the launch of a new superhero show on The CW, Batwoman.

And, at the moment, no one seems to know who this is and when, or even where, Batwoman will be shown.
I've spoken to the Sky Help desk and they seem as frustrated - and in the dark - about this as the rest of us.
As I understand it, the Batwoman show was to host an episode of the Crisis On Infinite Earths crossover.
So, as things stand at present, loyal Sky One viewers who've been glued to these super shows for years will suddenly find the event storyline of the year is missing a (possibly key) part.
It'll be like buying a book and finding a chapter has been cut out.
I'm wondering if Batwoman might be heading to Amazon Prime, as I believe Netflix and The CW have had a parting of the ways.
But who knows at this point? It could one of those ridiculous new streaming services that are popping up as add-ons to Prime Video, such as STARZPLAY ... where Pennyworth has been squirrelled away (to, sadly, remain unwatched).
While I'm all in favour of new channels appearing on Sky, and having access to more shows to fill my every waking hour, I can't see more 'pay channels' catching on over here.
We already pay a TV licence, as well as Sky, Sky Cinema, Amazon, and Netflix. And DisneyPlus is (hopefully) coming soon - which is just bursting with shows and films I'll need to watch.
The more channels there are, the less likely we are to have wonderful "event" television like these superhero crossover shows (although I'm keeping my fingers crossed for similar events on Disney's Marvel shows).
It would be a shame if that fatted calf got sacrificed just for the sake of squeezing a few quid a month more out of already tight budgets.
