Flash Series

Did you see the Dr. Strange Movie from the 70's? Me neither, but I'm sure someone did. Come here to talk about Movies and TV

Two nights in a row CW has made me cry. Not for Barry but for HR. Kudos to the writers I didn't see that one coming.

I didn't like the end though. It felt arbitrary and I feel like Jay hanging back and being like, "yeh sure man it's your turn" was fairly cowardly.

This was pretty unimpressive. All season Flash has kept my interest more than SG, but the finale in SG was waaaaay better. That concluding fight in SG was epic. This was maudlin and dull.

Was Jay really hanging back? Barry had already made up his mind that it would be him. Plus it follows along with the comics in Barry sacrificing himself and Wally taking over.

I was hoping Killer Frost would unambiguously murder some folks, but Julian miraculously beat the odds to not be fridged! I’m glad she rejected the cure because she makes better unsupported ice slides than Iceman & dresses with more panache too. Caitlin’s prolonged journey to becoming Killer Frost was pretty dodgy, but the end result is worthwhile. I’d prefer she stay a supervillainess or at least an anti-heroine, but if she does return as Ice (a completely different superheroine in the comics) then they really need Natalie Morales as her Fire!

Barry being back so fast was mean to everyone waiting for Kid-Flash to take up his mantle. I didn’t expect him to permanently replace Barry due to actors’ contracts, but what’s the point of treating all the CW’s super-proteges so disposable? As soon as Wally dons the Flash costume, he’s trashed by a lone Samuroid. He didn’t even get to say “My name is Wally West, & I am the fastest man alive!” To add insult to injury. Barry’s cool new suit is essentially Wally’s suit in the comics. Wally West deserves better!

Yeah...

There were things I appreciated here. Mainly the look on Barry's face when he realizes Iris is in danger. I can also applaud Iris for the idea because it makes sense.

Still, a lot wasn't great here and I hope we move on an upward trend. I'm already happy that a speedster isn't the primary antagonist though.

I’m enjoying how this season has been embracing outright comedy like its third episode, but I was not prepared for Katee Sackoff’s kooky British accent!

A prison riot on Barry's sixth day? Lol.

Coincidentally, I was at Pasquotank Correctional yesterday. http://www.charlotteobserver.com/news/l ... 57974.html

The mood among guards and staff seemed pretty mellow and the inmates I saw seemed content.

Some days I think I'd like to be in prison. 3 square meals a day, no rent, plenty of time to just chill and read. I just don't like the idea of having to have a work assignment. I don't want to make license plates, I'd rather just nap.

Jobs in prison are not mandatory. That would be slavery. But jobs are highly coveted; people desperately need purpose and boredom is the biggest burden on prisoners. Most guys work as janitors or in the kitchen for a couple dollars per week.. Actual employment in a shop like stamping plates pays way better ($1.25 per hour in Wisconsin), but those jobs are rare.

Even better. I'd set up a comic club and me and my cellmates would just read comics all day. :P

Since both Central City & Star City send their crooks to Iron Heights Penitentiary, are both cities supposed to be in the same state?

It should be illegal to misrepresent our criminal justice system as it was in this show. Those writers ought to be fired.

Haha! What's the standard practice for when the victim of a murder shows up alive? :lol:

XS is their granddaughter in the comics so they could make her either, but she's definitely related.

I hate "smart" villains so much.

There's nothing enjoyable when they lose and it's always "all according to plan."

I don't mind Xanatos gambits when the foe's superpower is being superhumanly smart like Thinker. It bothers me greatly when the villains are regular humans like Prometheus & the generic baddies of Arrow this season.

At least Prometheus had the charisma to pull it off and make it tolerable. The Thinker has been an absolute snooze.
