No Asians yet on this show, and this coming from a white guy. Hmmm..
Wally married a Korean American. The franchise has nothing to prove.

HA!

I have never really seen her full married name bared out before me before.

Linda Park-West.

(It's not that funny, but her last name is a location and might as well be a train station. )

If Barry is time travelling he could paradox Shado back to life?

Cheshire has babies with Roy Speedy Harper.

Lady Shiva is a member of the league of Assasins.

Again if Barry is Time Travelling, he could come back form the future with Connor Hawke... Oliver's son.

Oh goodness, a love connection between Conner and Shado... They would so have to live happily ever after in the future.

Did the kid Shado had with Olver ever turn up?

(Barely)

Say what? The '90's show kicked ass, IMHO. And it was better then Lois & Clark.

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

Barry and Tina should have got together.

Their "will they, won't they" was great, but the cancellation can't have been such a surprise that something drunk and...

I don't think 90s TV Barry can get Drunk?

Most Mexican telenovelas are better than Lois & Clark.

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

The '90s Flash had a lot going for it, but was very inconsistent in tone. At first, it was trying too hard to be serious and grim, in the vein of the Burton Batman, and the network didn't want the show to use supervillains. But by late in the season, they were free to use supervillains, but they'd embraced camp to an almost Adam-Westian degree. The show was best in the middle part of the season when it was in a comfortable middle ground between those extremes.

As for Lois and Clark, it had three distinct phases with very different approaches. The first season stressed the romantic comedy and characters to a degree that I think worked well, but underplayed the superheroics too much. The second season tried to balance the action and romance more, sometimes to the detriment of the latter, but I think it worked pretty well overall, aside from replacing the really cool Michael Landes version of Jimmy Olsen with the dreadfully boring Justin Whalen version. But seasons 3 & 4 were in the hands of new producers that, I felt, didn't respect the material and made it a dumb, goofy farce.

Burton's Batman, The Flash and Lois & Clark could have taken place in the same universe.

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

Speaking of the 90's Flash, John Wesley Shipp will have a recurring role in the new series:

John Wesley Shipp, who played Barry Allen/the Flash in the titular 1990s live-action CBS program, will have a mysterious role in the CW and Warner Bros. Television’s pilot of the same name.

While exact details of the part are being kept under wraps, the CW did say that it is intended to be a recurring guest star if the “Arrow” spinoff is picked up to series.

Not surprising, but great news none the less.

How long 'til they get Amanda Pays and Alex Désert onboard?

And in a nod to the Golden Age Flash, on the show Jay Garrick will be an FTD florist....

I'm not sure how you fit L&C in there, since it didn't have the blend of '40s Art Deco and modernity that the other two had.

Personally I believe that The Flash takes place in the DC Animated Universe, the same reality as Batman:TAS, Superman:TAS, Justice League, etc. It shares the retro-modern aesthetic of B:TAS, and its version of the Trickster shows up in Justice League Unlimited's "Flash and Substance." Also, it had music by Shirley Walker, and her Flash motif from the series is revived in S:TAS's Flash episode "Speed Demons."

True, there are a couple of inconsistencies in that theory, like the scene where Barry walks his dog past posters for Superman and Batman movies, predating Superman's public debut in the DCAU by several years. But there are similar inconsistencies within the DCAU. An early Static Shock episode, from before it was retroactively merged into the DCAU, has its main characters referring to Clark Kent as Superman's secret identity, as if he were a fictional character. And a Superman: TAS episode has Lois allude facetiously to Wonder Woman, years before Diana of Themyscira dons that identity in Justice League. So if those continuity glitches aren't dealbreakers, neither is this one.
