    That actually looks really good, and I absolutely love the superspeed effect.

    And it's kind of an interesting new explanation for the sudden appearance of super powers as well, but I guess it's no more ridiculous than anything else we've seen.

    Agents of SHIELD has been moved back an hour on the 2014-2015 schedule. The Flash will be up against a comedy block of two new shows - Selfie and Manhattan Love Story - on ABC.

    Outstanding trailer! In fact I think that's one of the best trailers I've ever seen for a network TV show.

    John Wesley Shipp plays Barry's Dad. you can see him in the family photo. Not sure why they kept it a mystery.

    I was too busy looking at Professor Zoom/Reverse Flash.

    - The show looks like it's going to be really good.

    - Couldn't see enough of the suit. He was moving too fast. :p

    - Looks like we'll be getting Professor Zoom at some point.

    - So far, it looks like they're following Christopher's suggestions concerning speed.

    It's possible they may work up to him getting faster, especially if they involve the Speed Force.

    The costume does look a lot better than in the set photos, at least in the few brief glimpses we got of it.

    It did appear that he went supersonic.

    So it would be going against Agent Carter then, right? Tuesdays should be fun.

    No, Agent Carter will air in Agents of SHIELD's timeslot when it's on mid-season hiatus. As I said earlier, ABC will air a new comedy block opposite The Flash.

    Do people really care what time anything airs anymore? Ever since getting a DVR I pretty much watch shows in whatever time and order I want to now. And I figured that's what most other people were doing as well.

    The live first-run rating is very important for renewals and cancellations, so competition in the timeslot matters from that point of view.

    Eh, there's just something about watching a show while it's being broadcast.

    Or maybe I'm just an old geezer.

    In any case, it usually sucks trying to watch it on the website (especially the CW's), and I don't have a DVR. 'Cause I'm an old, cheap geezer.

    Pretty promising, although there were moments when I wondered if I was watching a Sam Raimi Spider-Man trailer instead of a Flash trailer. Arrow is basically The Dark Knight for the small screen, but this seems to be drawing on a different influence.

    Also, some bits were a little corny, especially Oliver's little motivational speech there, which sounded kind of incongruous coming from him. It might've been better coming from Felicity (but then, what isn't?).

    Interesting that they're starting out with three main characters (as well as crossover guest stars) already knowing that Barry is the Flash, and having the Flash essentially acting as STAR Labs' agent. Sure, the 1990 series had Barry partnered with Tina McGee, but she was the only one at STAR who knew his secret, and she was assisting him, whereas here it looks more like he's assisting them. I guess they want to duplicate the hero-and-team dynamic that Arrow built up more gradually over the first season.

    My cable company's dvr can record at most 2 shows concurrently, and even then it doesn't allow you to watch a third show while doing that. The networks always manage to put a third show on during the same time slot, making me choose. :mad:
