The New Guy

The New Guy (1/8)

  1. I've been going back and listening to old episodes of the show, and this one finally gave me a reason to sit down and read Marvels, which was great. I decided to resurrect this thread here because I was surprised nobody mentioned (or maybe even noticed, but I doubt that one, especially in the years since this episode) that Clark Kent is in attendance at Reed and Sue's wedding. I thought that was a cool Easter egg, I love stuff like that. Like I said, I'm sure this isn't news to anyone, but thought I'd mention it anyway
  2. Oof. It has been some time since I've been here, good lord. I'm not sure what happened, I guess life got in the way and I had to shift some priorities around, letting Earth-2.net fall through the cracks. For that I'm truly sorry, this was a fantastic community of people and I always liked coming here. Anyway, on to why I've returned. I've recently started rewatching Justice League and Justice League Unlimited and was feeling nostalgic for the first podcast I ever listened to (that being this one). I had returned wondering if there was ever a reunion of sorts for the new(ish) Batman and Harley Quinn movie, since it's officially in DCAU continuity. Clearly there are no new episodes of this particular show, but maybe something in Earth-2.net: The Show? If not I think that could be really cool. Maybe even a double feature type thing, considering it appears that the Justice League vs. The Fatal Five movie coming out is also in DCAU Continuity. Just thought I'd throw out the suggestion. If this has already been discussed somewhere else, then my apologies.

    DC reboot

    This book, DC Rebirth, just made me cry. Not like "a couple tears down the cheeks" cry, I mean full on sobbing!
  4. I've been fairly busy this last week, so I wasn't able to comment on last week's episode. I loved it. Moving on. This week... Holy shit...
  5. I liked the episode for the most part, I feel like they've done the whole "Barry's lost his powers" thing one too many times. Although I wouldn't consider that a negative for this, more for Gorilla Warfare, with Grodd, because it just didn't really seem all that necessary there.
  6. I liked this episode. I don't know how to do the spoiler thing so I won't get deep into my thoughts, but I will say that Wally is starting to grow on me, now that he's not all angsty. And I liked Teddy Sears's acting more, now that he gets to be evil.
  7. This show's alright for the most part. It gives something to do on Thursdays, and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't excited for Jonah Hex, but by no means is it as good as Flash, Arrow, or even Supergirl. I was very surprised that it was renewed for a second season.
  8. Ok, I've been quite absent from the forums for a while now, (life and stuff) and I've not been able to give my thoughts. So prepare for 17 episodes worth. (I'll try to be brief) "The Man Who Saved Central City" - It was ok, but after waiting the entire summer for more Flash, I felt kind of let down. The effects were dope (apart from the early shot of Ronnie flying, yikes) and as always I liked Grant, but overall I thought it was disappointing. And Barry blatantly murdering the villain was not ok. "Flash of Two Worlds" - This was better, I liked the way Jay was brought into the show, the flashback of Jay and Zoom fighting on Earth-2 was awesome, and the shot at the end that mirrored Flash #123 made me geek hard. I liked Patty too. "Family of Rogues" - Always fun to see Snart (just recently found Prison Break, so that made me love Cold and Heatwave even more. Loving them on Legends) but I thought, like most, that the plot was weak. Love Snart and Barry's relationship, and I really dig Glider. "Fury of Firestorm" - kind of a meh episode for me. I like Jax and the effects as always were great, but the episode was mostly forgettable. That is until King Shark and Harry showed up at the end, at which point I screamed in excitement. "The Darkness and the Light" - Boy did I miss Cavanaugh! God he's just incredible. Dr. Light was cool, and I loved the Speed Mirage stuff. Barry and Patty's date was cute, and I didn't realize how much I missed Linda until she came back. "Enter Zoom" - Holy shit! Zoom is fucking terrifying! I loved this episode. Mainly just for Zoom in the last 10 or so minutes. It really hammered home how fucked Barry is. "Gorilla Warfare" - Grodd! And Harry pretending to be Thawne was great. I missed Henry, so seeing him was nice. Grodd looked incredible and I'm stoked to see more of him now that he's in Gorilla City. "Legends of Today/Yesterday" - I loved this crossover. Being a fan of both Flash and Arrow, it's always great to see the two casts interact (and I am in love with Emily Bett Rickards, so any time she shows up I'm happy) I liked Savage, I thought he was intimidating and I enjoy the actor. I was disappointed in how little I cared about the Hawks, given how excited I was to see them. I don't like Kendra (especially in Legends, where all she does is bitch about how "four months ago she was a barista") and I thought Carter was bland as hell. But everything else was great. I liked the use of Time Travel, although it does open up the "why doesn't Barry just go back every episode?" question, but whatever. "Running to Stand Still" - This episode was pure fun! Trickster was amazing (and I'm glad they left his kid out, I hated that guy) and Mardon was great. Snart showing up to warn Barry was cool. One of my favorite Flash visuals from the Comics is him running on the helicopter blades, so seeing that in this episode blew my mind. Barry appealing to Patty at the end, stopping her from killing Mardon was great, but I half expected him to rip off the mask right there, since he obviously doesn't care at all about his identity. Meeting Wally at the end was nice, if a bit brief, but I'll have things to say about him later. "Potential Energy" - I barely remember this episode. I liked The Turtle's power, I thought it looked cool. But this was another case of a disappointing return from a break. I thought writing Patty off the show was smart, because her subplot was going anywhere, and she resolved the stuff with her Dad. Mostly this episode was bland. The end with Zoom was cool though, (if I'm remembering the right episode there) "The Reverse-Flash Returns" - This was amazing! Eobard Thawne has always been among my top 5 favorite villains, so it's always good to see him. I liked that we finally got to see Barry win against Reverse-Flash (even if he was a bit of an amateur) and the actor (who's names escapes me) did a tremendous job. I liked that Thawne's origin remained intact, and I'm excited to see more Reverse-Flash episodes like this in the future, as we watch Eobard slowly turn into the man we met last season. "Fast Lane" - Meh. I liked Tar Pit for the most part. This is where I'll get into my Wally thoughts. Wally West has been my favorite Flash since I was a child watching Justice League, so I'm very critical whenever he shows up (which is why I hate what they've done to him in the comics so damn much). As of this episode, I wasn't digging him at all. I thought he was mostly whiney and I thought his being angry with Joe for not knowing about his existence was bullshit. He seems to be getting slightly better, but he has a long way to go for me (nothing against the actor, I think he's doing a great job with what he's been given). I figured being saved by Barry near the end there would have sparked his fascination with The Flash, but I guess not. Seeing Tar Pit in his full on comic book look was really cool, I always dug the character in the comics. The revelation that Harry was stealing Barry's speed happened alot sooner than I was expecting, but I liked that they didn't try to drag it out for several episodes. "Welcome to/Escape from Earth-2" - this two-parter was awesome. I always love the alternate universe thing, and seeing the doppelgangers was fun as hell! Barry-2 was hilarious, Iris-2 was awesome, Joe-2 being a singer that hated Barry was different (in a good way), Reverb was cool, and seeing the power that Cisco could eventually gain was amazing. But the best one has to be Killer Frost. Wow was Danielle Panabaker on here! Good lord. I've never seen such range from Panabaker, it was very impressive. And damn was she sexy (not that that really matters, but it's a plus). Damn Ronnie Raymond cannot catch a break, no matter what world he's on! The second episode did slightly dip, but the opening shot of Zoom terrorizing the city was incredible. Not much else really to say about the second part. More awesome Killet Frost, Joe's death was a heavy scene (that might have been part 1, I can't remember). Knockey Mask Guy, as my friend and I call him, was cool. Although as soon as he tapped out "Jay" I figured out the twist. As soon as Jay started standing right in front of the breach, I knew how the episode would end. But it was still effective. "King Shark" - It's episodes like these that really show off how impressive the effects are! King Shark looked amazing! Barry dealing with what he saw on Earth-2 was great, and his speech to Joe and Iris was amazing, I love Grant so much! Still didn't like Wally this episode, I thought his dislike of Barry was flimsy and his line "look around, you're in every picture" (or words to that effect) was moronic. Yeah no shit he's lived there since he was 11! The end, with Joe explaining to him about what happened with Barry was great though, I liked that. The final fight with KS was insane! I liked that Barry figured out what he was going to do all on his own, like in "Enter Zoom" the team was playing catch up and I liked it. The Jay=Zoom reveal was predictable, as I mentioned before. "Trajectory" - mostly filler. It was alright. The team finding out about Jay was good though. And the set up for Jesse Quick later on was nice. "Flash Back" - This episode was good, flashing back to "The Sound and the Fury" one of my favorite episodes last year. I think it was a terrible idea on Barry's part to go back at all, but whatever. S2 Barry vs. S1 Barry was really cool, and I liked that we were finally able get a reference for just how much faster Barry has gotten since then, he was able to take down his younger self with ease. But Barry is just awful at time travel, he's not back for more than two minutes before he fucks something up (warning about Hartley's ear pieces) and while it ended up ending well (if Barry hadn't done that, Hartley probably wouldn't have been there to save him from the Time Wraith when he returned) it was still a rookie mistake. God did this episode make me miss Wells/Thawne. And Cavanaugh slipped back into the role like he never left, it was brilliant. S1 Barry helping S2 Barry out at the end was great, and I'm excited to see all the ramifications this journey back in time will have in the future. So that was everything, I don't expect anyone to actually sit and read all that, because wow, but I felt like I should throw it all out there before I move forward with regular contributions to this thread. Excuse any repetitive adjectives, as I'm fairly tired and couldn't think of any good ones. I definitely forgot some things, but that was bound to happen. I'm confident that I touched on everything worth while though.
  9. Hi all, I've been re-listening to WFP while simultaneously re-watching the DCAU and I'm at the World's Finest review. Mike has just brought up the fact that Batman grappling up and being carried away by the Batwing is in his "Top 5 Most Badass Moments in the DCAU" and it made me think. What is everyone's most badass moment? My personal favorite is in the JLU episode "Divided We Fall" when Wally single-handedly defeats Brainiac/Lex by running around the planet and hitting him with each pass. That scene is what cemented The Flash (Wally West in particular) as my favorite superhero of all time. I loved it!
  10. I have to assume the shots of Eddie being all evil are a shape shifting meta human. Given the fact that we see Barry beating on Eddie in what appears to be the same room as previous shots of him fighting another Flash...
  11. I'm with KnightWing... I really like Cisco.
  12. Finally got around to watching it... and holy shit that was awesome! I'm a huge fan of The Flash (as you may have noticed...) and I have been excited for this show for a long time... but at the same time I was SUPER nervous that it would end up sucking... but thankfully it was great! (at least the first episode was... let's hope it stays this good...) And Grant Gustin was amazing! I was also impressed with the CGI... for it being a pilot episode, it was surprisingly good... (still obviously television... but good nonetheless...) And the ending was cool! Okay, I'm done...
