MINOR SPOILERS FOLLOW: Finally caught the premiere episode of CW’s The Flash. While my disdain for Arrow is well known I have to say I really enjoyed The Flash. The tone is completely different and the show contained a ton of DC silver age references. (Gorilla Grodd anyone?)
Besides this being a completely different universe a lot of comic fans become rigid in their desire to see their stories make it to screen. Take a look above at the classic Flash villain, the Weather Wizard. Besides his name being completely dorky, the court jester vs. Robin Hood costume doesn’t do it for me. I much prefer the version below that we got in this episode.
