Just watched the pilot as well.  Agree on every point you have made.  It's just really well done on all aspects.  Was fun noticing all the references to other DC comics and future issues Flash will be dealing with.

Link, please and thank you.

Well it's tonight finally for those of us who didn't watch the pilot over the summer.

And first images of Captain Cold

I approve.  Glad they are going with him having tech and not being a Meta-human like in The New 52

I could see them having him evolve later into a meta human, but the cold gun is essential at all times.

Well ratings wise the pilot was a success. Highest rated CW premiere since Vampire Diaries in 2009.

The new World's Finest.  :)

I think Flash was the strongest pilot of all the shows.

Yep, it hit the ground running, no pun intended.

pretty good show. The last scene filled me with dread though. I hate time travel stories

Well time travel is the root of Flash's origin in this. The Zoom that kills Barry's mom traveled to the past to do it.

I doubt there's much more to it though, other than who or what Harrison Wells is.

Actually, they've said in an interview time travel is a central part of the show, and time will be malleable.  We'll see how well they handle it.

Time Travel has kind of always been a thing with The Flash though.  The New 52 exists because of him and the Flashpoint storyline which was time travel.

Yeah but you'll get plenty of non-time travel stuff with the Rogues week to week. Time travel will probably be the long term theme and eventually bring in Wally and Bart as well if they introduce the Speed Force.

Do Wally and Bart even exist in the post Nu52 comics?  Which one's "Kid Flash"?

Would be kind of neat if they could work in Hal Jordon at some point, although I was always more of a Kyle Rayner fan.  Wally West and Kyle Rayner were pretty much OUR generations Flash and Green Lantern, when you think about it.

Kid Flash is Bart. Wally is about to, if not already, make his Nu52 debut.


I agree wit Wally and Kyle being our generations Flash and GL. Hell, DC did a great job of organically building up Wally to be the Flash in the wake of Barry's sacrifice in Crisis,

It's usually played pretty sparingly in the comics, and fast and loose when it is..  Kind of like Dr. Who plays it, vs Looper.

Like how Barry was hanging out in the future with Iris, and had some half dozen meetings with Wally after his death.

Kyle Rayner is my preferred Lantern.  Well Alan Scott actually is but that's a whole different type of Lantern XD

Even Batman knows better then to mess with Alan Scott.

And he messes with just about everyone.
