The Flash

Oh totally. I think the writing has more room to improve. There are a lot of teamwork and friendship themed platitudes that get tossed around too cheesily, but it's a very likable show. Gustin's Barry Allen is a distinctively nice guy who tries to do the right thing. He doesn't feel like any other superhero that's been portrayed in the media before.

This gave me yet another reason to start watching Arrow, but I can't make the jump. I still don't like going from Chili-making, swashbuckling, liberal Ollie Queen to grim and gritty "THE ARROW" who lives in "Starling City". I know I should check my prejudices at the door and just give it a sot, but it's tough.

After finally catching the most recent episode, I'm left with one burning issue.

Are Wentworth Miller and Jensen Ackles related? Because they are fucking twins.

(Also, if Jensen Ackles can cameo as the ArrowFlashVerse Bruce Wayne, that would totally be okay.)

((Sammy can even be Clark Kent!))

Stop killing all the superpowered characters, dammit.

Also, Joe is pretty nonplussed about his son wanting to hook up with his daughter.

Also, Jesse L. Martin's laugh is like a chorus of angels.

The scene with Barry and Joe may be the most well acted scene in the show so far. Grant Gustin's really good, and the relationship between the two characters goes beyond young guy/old guy mentor/apprentice relationship. I'm sure Joe will be killed off before the series ends, but whenever that may happen it'll be a real hurt for the show because he's a really great character and they've earned investment in him.

Seriously, fuck Cisco. The character is irritating, the actor is weak, and I just want to punch his stupid face.

Yup. If he's the nerdy viewpoint character then I don't think they quite realise what they've got in Barry. The generic other lab person is nothing either. The show totally hinges on Evil Doctor, Detective Dad, Barry and Iris.

...I really like Cisco...

Yeah, but you're wrong a lot.

Hah! Yeah, he lacks the dorkward charm that role needs. They were aiming for a Fitz from AoS or Marshall from Alias, a guy that's socially awkward but aware enough to try and compensate for it and from thence the humour arises. Instead they got this generic guy who says the wrong things in a way that's not at all charming.

Funny thing: as I posted that, I leaned over to a buddy of mine and said, "watch, any minute now a guy named Dan is going to reply and tell me I'm always wrong."

I didn't say you're always wrong. I said you're wrong a lot.

So... wrong.

Greg Finley has a long career ahead of him playing douchebags.

I liked the bonding between Barry and Eddie, especially if Thawne is (a?) Reverse-Flash.

The unmasked bit was so dumb. Just stand in the shadows and feel good about your win. Don't reveal your secret identity to the super villain.

One of the things I love about this show is that they kill the codas every week. Even if an episode is lackluster, like this one, they know how to hook you to come back next week. I'm interested to see how they deal with this one, because Joe's gotta put together that he was attacked after talking to Wells.

Also, I'm going to have to start watching this at night so I can take a shot every time someone says "impossible".

Eddie gives Barry an Emperor Palpatine grin as he encourages him to punch harder. I'm feeling more and more sure all the time that he's Reverse Flash instead of Wells.

If Wells is Reverse Flash, it doesn't make a lot of sense, I think, for him to attack Joe only after Joe decided Wells was innocent. Though maybe Wells and Thawne are working together?
