    I got to see this during upfronts but since people have seen the pilot now and are talking about it, I'd like to clarify once again that

    spoilers:
    Barry was NOT adopted by Iris's dad, he 'took him in' which is totally different, and Iris, while clearly not viewing Barry romantically, also makes a point to say 'its not like we're brother and sister, so I get that its weird talking to me about girls you like' and there was a very pointed effort to convey that while extremely close, the two do not view each other as sharing a sibling bond.

    I played a little game of "this reminds me of that"
    Some things from the comics, some things from other movies and TV shows
    Fun episode, really hope there is no quality drop as the show goes on

    I also heard a certain character's name being dropped by Iris to Barry. It's probably just a throwaway line but I liked it. She says:

    There were a lot of references this episode. This show appears to be taking it's cues very much from the comics.

    spoilers:
    Why did they make Professor Zoom a transfer cop from Keystone City? That seems more like Zoom's (Hunter Zolomon) background than Thawne's.

    cherry picking elements from what works...nothing wrong there

    adaptations tend to do that

    True, but I think it would have been cooler to make him a scientist like Barry, but still from the future. Maybe a new partner in the forensics department who mysteriously shows up as opposed to a regular cop.

    I have more of a problem that the guy who they cast as Thawne looks and acts way more like Barry Allen then the guy they cast to play Barry Allen.

    My bigger problem is that their appears to be another character with Thawne's regular MO. Unless shenanigans and trickery are at play.

    I'm thinking Thawne and that character( whose name is escaping me) are working together and Thawne may have warned him about spoilers:
    Crisis on Infinite Earths

    This is shaping up to be awesome.
    That is the land of lost content, I see it shining plain, the happy highways where I went and cannot come again.

    spoilers:
    I don't think so. Harrison Wells (for H.G. Wells, the author of The Time Machine?) is obviously from the future (remember his speech : "the future is closer than you think") and he's probably Eobard Thawne in disguise. Eddie Thawne is a red herring and might be his ancestor.
