[TV] The Flash 2014

Postby Silkie on Thu Oct 09, 2014 12:14 pm

From the people behind Arrow and linked to the series this is a new superhero series about DC Comics speedster that has already started in the USA and airs later this month on Sky1 on the 28th October.

Could be good but the main criticisms so far is that it is kind of dumbed down. Not sure about the suit but it might be worth checking out.

Trailer for the show.

I liked the first ep :D

Not sure what it's dumbed down from but it's started with no nonsense and I can't really judge its depth yet
This is my sandvich. There are many others like it, but this one is mine. My sandvich is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my sandvich is useless. Without my sandvich, I am useless. I must eat my sandvich true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy, who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will. Before lunch I swear this creed: my sandvich and myself are defenders of my country, we are the masters of our enemy, we are the saviors of my life. So be it, until there is no enemy, but sandvich. Om nom.

I liked the first ep. as well, it could have been better and I hope it will when the characters develop more over time. It could still go both ways, if they make Barry too serious of a character I expect to get bored of the show quickly as I the reason why the Flash is one of my fav. super heroes is because of his relaxed attitude and humour.
The thing that bothered me the most was the shows logo as it differs so much from the comic logo. :P

I enjoyed the 1st episode but it is kind of hard to know if it will be something I will enjoy or not. Seeing as it was only the 1st episode. I will probably give it a few episodes and see how I feel about it.

I must say the main reason I've kept watching is the villain but it is fairly good and could get a whole lot better.

I'm quite enjoying it.

To be honest, it has a couple of wooden actors in it IMHO (Iris' cop boyfriend and Cisco), but is not a bad show.

There are a lot worse shows out there :)

I agree about the cop boyfriend, but Cisco is starting to growing on me.

This mid-season finale was pretty great (if some-what predictable on certain twists). I love that they're already sinking their teeth into the more comic-booky elements rather than skirting around it like other shows of this type.

I'm glad I kept watching but sometimes it's like I'm missing segments. I may have to check Wikipedia in case it's been with crossovers to Arrow.

Blimey. I should have guessed as this is an old comic book trick anyway but here I can't wait for a trade like in the days of Civil War/House of M etc.

Hmm I can only find reference to one actual Flash appearance but some cast member cross overs.

Season finale tossed in some more Easter eggs.



The Golden Age Flash, Hunter Zolomon and Killer Frost so it may be that the Earth 1,2 etc. stuff may be in future episodes or other DC series.

They left it wide open for Legends of Tomorrow as far as I can tell

Ezra Miller has been announced to play Barry Allen in the new Flash movie that seems to be completely separate from the series. Odd choice as I don't really see him as an action movie actor.

I still can't believe someone working in particle physics didn't know what a singularity is. Or that the amazing technology they have still requires a manual stopwatch activation.



Weak choice there imo, same as Jared Leto playing Mr J. I hope they're good but I'm already expecting disappointment lol

More cross over but amazingly with another TV station as a Flash/Supergirl crossover is announced for March. I've been enjoying the Supergirl series as it has a really good feel to it and already features more DC heroes.

I didn't like the first super girl episode but I did like the references too it (suggesting it being in the same universe) in the last episode.
