    I seem to remember people here enjoying the show.

    This weeks episode was absolutely amazing.

    This show is the best comic book adaptation ever. Just awesome.

    We need to bring @ARM in and start a Super Heroes TV/Movie thread.
    I just finished Arrow up to the last break and there was an ep on last night.
    I need to watch The Flash and I haven't seen Agents of Sheld since the mid season break....I need to get on the stick.

    The show is the worst adaption of a comic character ever. Has very little to do with the actual flash comic which ran from 1959-1985.

    i like the flash. i stopped reading the comic in the 60s so i'm not concerned if it doesn't follow the comic books.

    i haven't tried arrow yet. it's on my list.

    I disagree.

    Arrow is using the character in a generic crime show.

    Flash is an actual comic book adaptation with the same sensibilities you find in comics.

    Flash has the best rogues gallery and they are utilizing them very well.

    Captain Cold, Weather Wizard, Gorilla frickin' grodd.

    Reverse Flash/Eobard Thawne!!!!

    how can yuo say it has nothing to do with the comic?

    flash never had a 'team' to help him. Barry was married to Iris Allen. No black cop or daughter of cop ever interacted with Barry in the flash comics. uniform came out of ring in comics and looks different. I could go on....

    The last episode of The Flash was one of the best hours on television! Mind blown!!!!

    The craziest part is that it wasn't a season finale. What the hell are they going to do to top this?? :dontknow:

    Look, if you don't like it, you have a right to your opinion.

    It's miles better than anything that has been on in the past. Either embace it or ignore it.
    Anyone else watching Gotham? Try to take a shot at that.

    not saying I don't like it. I just find it is not very true to the actual comic that I have read most of my life.

    ah, come on.

    Those are minor changes to allow a series narrative.

    what are your thoughts on Arrow?

    To be honest with you I do not watch a lot of TV...Most things just don't interest me or I don't have the patience to sit threw it. So the little I saw of Arrow I cannot comment on.

    I like Arrow better but I see how people prefer Flash. I just find it a tad campy, but I guess that is more "accurate" to comics or whatev.

    Now Gotham. That show is just a steaming pile of shit. Thank christ Jada Pinkett Smith is gone next season, I'm at my breaking point with her Ertha Kitt homage.

    And anyone notice how Schumacher-esque a lot of their lighting is?
