    The one problem with the pilot is that i's derative of Arrow.

    spoilers:
    Hero gets into an accident and is far away from the supporting cast for an extended period of time.

    Comes back from the accident as a superhero.

    Girl he loves is dating the a guy with the name of a supervillain (who probably won't be the actual supervillain and instead be a blood relative).

    Said girl has a detective dad who never appeared in the comics before.

    He has a team behind of normal guys behind him helping him out. Hoepfully they never say "Team Flash" on the show.

    Harrison Wells is probably Prof. Zoom, like BARROWMAN! was Merlyn.

    For that reason I kinda hope they go the obvious route with Eddie. Thawn.
    end of spoilers

    Other than that the pilot was great.

    I post via my phone a lot, therefore I make the occasional grammatical error. Not an excuse just forewarning you. Feel free to call me out I won't mind.

    Frankly I think they should release all pilots early. Give people a chance to judge them and decide which shows they will watch. I kinda wish that was how they would decide which shows went to series. Put them on line and let people vote.

    Meh you have to pay to watch shows on amazon though. Comcast has been releasing a select few new shows about amonth early each year. And yeah you pay for comcast but it' s not the same.

    I liked the pilot. The only thing bothering me was seeing the West's black. It's a really minor thing, and I'm sure both are great actors, but it just feels weird to me. spoilers:
    I'm also glad that the Weather Wizard in the show wasn't Mark. The reason being Rogues don't kill, and seeing Clyde was doing all the work and is now dead, leave Mark to take the place as Weather Wizard.
    end of spoilers

    As long as those same people watch the pilot in October to support the show, I think it's okay with anyone who downloads the show.

    The guy playing detective west has been in a lot. And since Iris is black in the comics now (i think) I don' t have an issue. Though it does raise the question who do you cast for Bart now.

    That almost seems sound, except what if a whole series doesn't go ahead, one that could improve past the pilot, and possibly a lot, but was turned down by public due to pilot.

    But, if it's the democratic thing of it, what the people want, or do not, just saying that could be a risk if that approach was employed in the future.

    Also, watched Flash premiere - still annoyed by Cisco and Caitlin and still not all that happy about Iris skin colour alteration, but the super speed was, at times, astounding, or breathtaking.

    Fairly interesting coda, pre-credits, and one that got my Dad wondering a fair bit, like is that newspaper from the future, me saying it could be that he's in the past, while having a future paper archived. Or, maybe Barry was so important to him because of ensuring he's fast enough to save the universe in the Crises?

    Villain got to be fun when in combat with the Flash, but look of powers were a bit goofy, I felt. Cameo from Oliver made sense, though I still have an uncomfortable feeling about that because of an episode near the end of Season 2. Was a nice boost for Barry though, and a nice scene between two heroes.

    Am hoping Gotham and Constantine pilots end up out there somewhere soon.

    No she's white. However when Wally appeared she seems to be drawn with more a tan. It shouldn't be hard to get a Bart in the show, since we don't have one in the n52. Only Bar Torr.

    I mean with Iris being Black and Bart being her Grandson he has to be mixed.

    I feel people are making this a bigger issue than it needs to be

    we live in a mixed multicultural world, I am a product of a mixed family..my mom and my sister are Puerto Rican but have very light skin, my dad is black and my stepmom is white

    people are different colors, let's deal and move on
