Interesting. I'll wait to watch it on my TV I think.

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

As pilots go, they set the stage and introduced elements that will most definitely pay off in seasons to come.

I enjoyed the introduction of "Metahumans" into the Arrowverse and feel confident that we'll get to see more and more "Powers" showing up now that the cat is out of the bag.

As long as they can maintain the tone of realism within a fantastic universe, I think everything will work out just fine.

...and that ending!

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

Why do all the (contemporaries of Barry's) actors look so young?

They're supposed to be early 20s, but they all look 15?

Certainly, it's good for my Tuesdays. But I probably would have been happy with my Wednesdays being Arrow and Flash instead. I'm glad Agents of SHIELD and Flash aren't directly competing, but I'm not sure why Flash and Arrow aren't on the same night.
You're gonna love this: up here in Canada, all three shows have their broadcast rights held by the same TV network: BellMedia's CTV arm. I think CTV would be annoyed by any attempt to put SHIELD into direct competition with any DC-derived show on the US side of the border. They likely couldn't stop the decision from being taken, but it would annoy them.

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

Can I just suggest that for those of you using alternate means to watch the pilot early that you use spoiler code for any episode details not already made available from watching the trailer. Nothing has been given away so far but I just wanted to make sure. Thanks!

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

I wouldn't mind seeing it early, but hell. I can't even keep up with shows I like that are on tv now. :/

I just caught Arrow for the first time this season last night, because wife and I were both home at the same time and nothing "better" was on.

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

I really, really liked it.

So far, it seems like its DC's best attempt at a television show in a very long time. While they made some changes here and there, the brunt of the story is there, Barry actually is the Flash (as opposed to whoever the fuck was in Smallville; it sure as hell wasn't Supes), there's tons of potential for the villians, several of his rogue's gallery have already made an appearance (or at least have been hinted at; I loved the sign in Star Labs especially), and they're even including some of the cooler aspects of recent comics in the story from the very start.

All in all, looking forward to seeing what they do with it. It's not going to be a boring emofest like Arrow, and it doesn't look to be a teen emofest like Smallville, so it's already miles ahead of the pack.

At the end of his comic in the 80s, Barry goes to live in the future with Iris(or is it the other wife?), the 30th century, where they have Twins. One of the twins has a Son called Bart Allen, who grows up to be Impulse, travels back in time to the 20th century, and then Kid Flash and then Flash... And that's who was on Smallville.

"Impulse" not "Flash".

Bart's mother actually had a fling with Captain Boomerang, which is how Bart wound up with a Super speedster Brother called captain Boomerang Jr who could not make up his mind if he was a hero or a villain.

I thought about checking out the pilot but that 'Promotional Purposes Only' tag at the bottom is too distracting so I'll wait the 3½ months.

Yeah same here. Much as I hate waiting, the quality just wasn't nearly good enough.

I'd broadly agree with all (in particular that we get straight into the action) that with only a couple of minor exceptions the main one being:
