The Flash - Season 1

***SPOILER DISCUSSION***









Arrow's spin-off series The Flash starts on Tuesday October 7th on the CW. In the meantime, you can read the first issue of the digital comic called The Flash: Season Zero which is now available at Comixology.

Prepare for 'The Flash' with DC Comics' 'Season Zero'

Written by executive producer Andrew Kreisberg, along with series writers Brooke Eikmeier and Katherine Walczak, The Flash: Season Zero takes place after the pilot and before the rest of the series. It follows the young superhero as he begins to learn his powers with the help of his S.T.A.R. Labs team, under guidance of the suspicious Harrison Wells, as well as his role as protector of Central City as he faces off against newly super-empowered criminals. - Entertainment Weekly
The Flash: "Pilot" Review

When I reviewed the Barry-centric episodes of Arrow, I wasn't entirely sold on Gustin's Barry. He seemed a little too young and awkward alongside the likes of Stephen Amell's Oliver Queen and David Ramsey's John Diggle. But Gustin has definitely grown on me since then. It's probably a combination of Gustin having had a little time to settle into the role and the fact that he's now the star of the show. Gustin delivers a winning blend of charm and dorkiness in this first episode that makes him endearing. There are elements of both Clark Kent and Peter Parker to this Barry Allen. The fact that he's gotten into superhero shape in the past year doesn't hurt either. His abs may not put Amell's to shame, but he does have the physique now to convincingly play a speedster superhero.

Another element working in The Flash's favor is that it has a sense of identity and purpose. This is something Arrow really struggled with early on as it tried to escape the shadow of Chris Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy. Read the full review.

I am so crazy excited for this show. I love Arrow, and I'm very curious to see how the guys behind it handle a more fantastic superhero show.

The pilot was released on line months ago.

The bad boys and girls are gagging to find out what's going on in episode 2.

I was never able to get into Arrow, but this one looks like it could be really fun.

Is the pilot still out there, or did I miss it?

At this point, it is good marketing to release the pilot online. Helps build buzz for the show. How many more people are looking forward to Constantine and Flash now because of the leaked pilots.

In fact, when a show doesn't get leaked then it leads to suspicion that the studio might not be entirely confident in it.

I know it's been out in the wild for quite some time but I have refrained from watching it. I can't wait to see it!

Re: The Flash - Season 1

You obviously don't completely understand what "I can't wait to see it" means since you are clearly waiting to see it?

Below is closer to what you mean?

"I can't wait to see it in a manner the producer will allow me to see it because s/he is the boss of me."

Of the 5 leaked episodes of Doctor Who, which was a really big thing, 2 of the 5 episodes had major changes, leaving us with completely different products.

Call me old-fashioned but I prefer to watch TV on TV as God intended . . .

Looking forward to catching the show when debuts.

Let me rephrase. I can't wait to see it in the best possible format. I haven't checked out the online version because I am sure it is of inferior visual quality.

Re: The Flash - Season 1

I didn't like the prerelease of True Blood. Didn't like the release either. Took a while to warm to it really. But the difference between the release and the prerelease was that Kerry Washington was playing the part of the "sassy black friend" originally and then the part was recast with someone maybe half as attractive and twice as annoying.
