That post was from March, which was like 2/3 of the way thru the first season. The first half dozen episodes of the show were not good. What is the Flash on now, 3?

You just told me to read the first few pages man.

@Cross: I don't feel like it's asking too much to cover your plot holes so that they aren't so glaring. I'm obviously OK with some oversights and a few instances of 'whever b/c comics', but there's like a million per minute with Flash.

Just like any Flash comic or any world where the Flash exists with any sort of powelevel. We could just turn him into a good long-distance sprinter.

I don't think it was such a bad prediction at the time, given how grounded they were playing Arrow before it went full retard.

I enjoyed Captain Cold. Dunno how accurate he is to popular comic interpretations but as a villain for this show he was pretty good.

Lot of Felicity porn in this episode. Love the line about Salmon Ladder.

God, you weren't kidding. Let's make the amazing Blackhawks into a spineless, impotent security company just so comic nerds can get their fucking empty-reference-quota filled. Great look, Flash! Meanwhile, Barry ponders creating his own nickname (is there anything worse than someone who invents their own nickname?) and is all like, "What about The Flas-..." before getting cut off. Holy cow, and that's just like in the first few minutes. I like cheese, but this is on a whole other level of discombobulated mess. We're approaching Spiderman 3 here.

What the heck. Fanciest quiz night I've ever seen. And love that it's happening at a coffee shop instead of a bar (cw effect?). And who the fuck dresses up for quiz night, let alone in costumes.

"After all we've been through, Cisco! I thought we were friends!" Yeah Cisco! We made it through 4 episodes together! That's like being blood brothers, right?

I wanna say at the end of everything I still enjoyed the episode, but flash has me cringing a bunch at times. It's still got a lot to work out before it finds its legs.

Barry Allen wrote:My name is Barry Allen and I'm the fastest man alive. A friend recently gave me the idea for a new name and something tells me it's gonna catch on. .

Nothing in that mentions Ollie/The Arrow. Nor does it say that he recommended the Flash as a name. We also don't know at what point Barry is meant to be saying this, or if he is just being an omniscient narrator reflecting on the past.

It's really obvious Cross. Stop being such a Darthender.

Also love Kenzo complaining about references I'll never understand. :lol: White comics.

Ollie said "Saving people... in a Flash"

This hipster distaste of Flash his hilarious, especially if Arrow is sparred this. This is literally a brighter Arrow. Aptitude of story telling and fanservice is the same. Just slightly less killing and fake grimness.

I did lol at the Cisco line, though.

I think some of the references are a bit more forced in the Flash, but I still like them.

Really liked this episode, but man do I wish they would stop killing off metahumans. I wouldn't be surprised to see any of them make a comic book style return from the grave, but don't kill interesting characters.

Really liked this episode.

-Plastique was kind of bad, but not as bad as Huntress.
Spoiler: show
Still would of preferred her to stick around, but like most of these deaths she could probably come back.


-Clancy Brown is da man.
Spoiler: show
So glad he's sticking around and didn't get blowed up.


-When they were talking about the experiment I guessed what they were talking about, but I guess it's pretty obvious.
Spoiler: show
First glimpse of Grodd was pretty good.


-No drunkness is kind of funny.

-I liked him experimenting with his impossible feats.

-Boomerang joke made me laugh.

Apparently some guy got cast as Jason Rusch. Will we have two Firestorms? Will he and Ronnie Raymond form together, with Dr. Stein already going to be in the picture?
