Halfway through season 1. What a great show. How come Warner was so slow to capitalize on the Flash? Playing their cards right he could reach Spider-Man level popularity, the whole universe is pretty charming.
Kinda' sad his movie will have to fit their new approach to movies.
Finished S1 tonight. It's really quite good.
I think the key is NOT being ashamed of the source material like I feel Arrow is.

But the Flash tv show is nothing like Flash comics and they do the whole "lol comics are so silly xD" bit more than Arrow.
Did you miss the mid-season finale where Weather Wizard busts Captain Cold and the Trickster out of prison so they can kill the Flash and devise a plan where they hide bombs in Christmas presents given out to kids by the Trickster disguised as Santa Claus, and hold the city hostage against Flash. And then they figure out that they can reverse the polarity of magnetic field charges on the bombs and transfer it to all of the hidden packages through quantum tunneling, which allows the packages to be sucked into a wormhole into another dimension that was floating above Central City, caused by the Flash triggering a major time paradox at the end of the first season.
If that's not a fucking comic book plot then please tell me what I'm missing.
Barry's characterisation is completely different. And besides, new 52 Flash is only worth reading for the art.
You're missing all the parts where it was your average television drama.
I know, it was great.
The actual cliffhanger they left off on fell flat (because it was so fucking obvious that it was coming), but the rest of the episode was one of my favorites.
>new 52 Flash is only worth reading for the art.
This does NOT change your original BS about it not being like the comics.
They're using legitimate comicbook plot points and logic so how is it not like the comics other than Barry's characterization being a little different. And to be fair, Barry's character is literally different in every run.
>You're missing all the parts where it was your average television drama.
What part of that description says "AVERAGE" television drama.
Is there family and romantic drama in the show? Well yeah, but there's family and romantic drama all up and down the Flash comics themselves too. The Flash family has always relied on relationships and supporting characters to help contribute to the plot of the comics and development of the main heroes, same as any superhero legacy.
>how is it not like the comics
All the relationship crap taking up half of every episode and turning beloved comic characters into OC.
Namedropping and very loosely adapting comic elements, doesn't mean it's like the comics.
