    To be fair, they might be new to the way things might go here, and at times, threads, either about manga, of Superman films, or even the new Ninja Turtles, get started up not simply to discuss it, but also to criticise and disect it.

    So, it's not automatically a given that people like it because there's a thread, or a long lasting thread about it. Just look at the various different arguments, or discussions, in the Fantastic Four thread; it's gone on a very long while, and despite dashes of apathy or positivity, negativty mixed in, of course, as with everything.

    So, please, try to be a bit more understanding of them saul, as I'd say it would make a difference for them.

    I for one am looking forward to seeing the new Flash TV series. I think I will enjoy it.

    How do you think it'll compare to the 90s' series, with Barrys' Dad from this, John Wesley Shipp, as the Scarlet Speedster?

    Or, have you seen that?

    I am in the currently in the process of watching the pilot. The dialogue is a little cringe worthy and the performances are all over the place, but so far I can see some potential.

    I may not get heavily into the show but I feel like I will check out episodes for specific characters/events.

    I'm expecting the same level of "quality" as Arrow but hopefully with much less attempt at grimdark.

    Well I thought that if I am going to criticize it I should do so on itís entire merits (now that the pilot is un-officially available) than for just what I didnít like on Arrow. Otherwise I would just be a MB crank who should be ignored .

    Like I mentioned above, I take the show for what it is. A drama action flick aimed at teens/20 somethingsí. I donít expect for this to be Hamlet. As long as I like the characters and it has coherent plot Iíll at least give it a chance and treat it as 45 minutes as escapism from life. I am just glad that they tweaked the Barry characterisation, because apart from it being annoying. I just canít see that sort of character holding the attention of tv audiences. But from what Iíve seen I am glad that not only did they give him more gravitas. They also showed his character.
    I first found the scene where he apologizes for almost knocks over that guy while in pursuit of the thief of Irisís bag a bit strange. Until I remembered that heís a very considerate person with a big heart. Thatís the way he operates and thatís his foundation. It makes his decision to become a superhero or use his powers for good a bit more believable, than just some forced plot point.

    Blowing up at Barry and telling him that itís time to stop living in fantasy land and he should get with reality is one thing. But the stuff he said about his Dad being guilty etc. Was just unnecessarily harsh. Even itís true, he should just left it un-said. Because he more or less told Barry that his Dad is a piece of ****. You donít say something like that to someone about their parents (unless of course the child was a victim of abuse etc.).

    I have to agree with you there. That felt really uncalled for and out of place.

    Except that his dad was accused of murdering his own wife and all of the evidence SEEMS to point to him. So no, calling him "a piece of S***" and confronting Barry about believe a fantasy (from everyone who wasn't actually there's perspective) is NOT uncalled for at all. Barry's an adult, he should be treated like one, period.

    Mia i completely am with you 110% and i said the same exact thing on another Flash thread here and i got yelled at and talked down too.

    I'm just glad i'm not the only one who feels that way.

    He could have handled it a lot more tactfully for sure if he was gonna say such things at all.

    To be honest it makes him seem uncaring and possibly jealous that his adopted son is still chasing this thing even after he has done so much for Barry.

    Almost forgot to watch the flash pilot today. That would have been tragic.

    this is ridiculous. some of us gave our viewpoint and disagreed with you (actually, you responded to my post to Mia), so how does that equal yelling and talking down to you?

    if anything, we should be having a problem as you keep accusing us of something we didn't do. instead you're once again playing victim to us mean, mean posters

    It was basic brow beating "were right and your wrong so shut up and kowtow to what we believe"
