    I can't get myself to watch Arrow so don't have an opinion on Amell really. The little bit I've seen here and there has been unimpressive. There again, I typically loathe all CW shows though. It's a credit to how much I like The Flash that I'm even giving this series a chance :o

    Yeah, there's no way really to naturally connect the films with the television series in my honest opinion.

    How would people then explain as to why Superman didn't even help out with the crisis that took place in Starling City at the end of both Season 1 and 2.

    And it's been established on Arrow in "Season 2" that Aliens don't yet exist as far as people are aware of.

    Why can't people just let this subject matter go already? The films and TV Series are better off this way.

    Is Flash going to get faster over the series? He was struggling to hit 700mph in this episode.

    The pilot was cool. It actually reminded me a bit of an old 80s show when some of these series were a little more fun. The testing of his running at the start also was reminiscent of Six Million Dollar Man.

    I hope his villains show up in costumes and aren't just dressed in normal clothes like Weather Wizard was (or at least his brother).

    Is Iris's father supposed to know Barry's secret in the comics?

    - The world reacts to Flash as though he is the first and only superhero, and will continue to
    - This is important for the themes of the show, not just the technical details
    - Not all suspension of belief is the same, never has been

    Safe to assume he'll get faster throughout the series progression.

    I don't remember Blake Lively as Iris in the Green Lantern movie that was not about the Flash.

    I would assume so, given all the hints at time travel plots.

    Never? That's kind of nuts if you think about it. When you think about how often Lois Lane's father shows up, for instance. Or Carol Ferris' father. Diana's mother, Arthur Curry's father...and the relative importance they all have to the mythologies.

    Having Iris' father be so central to things kind of makes it that much more "DC".

    He appears in the New 52.
    He is shown in flashbacks abusing/neglecting Iris and her brother Daniel, and eventually he is Daniel's motivation for becoming Reverse Flash.

    If Flash hits 88 mph will he go back in time?

    I think you just triggered some PTSD with that reference.

    Hahaha well, I know I'm probably alone in this, but I like that movie. The only Star Trek movie with the original cast that I absolutely HATE is the first one.

    The scene with Barry and his dad at the end was nice, too.

    A good way to hit the feels in the opening episode.

    I liked the idea of that scene, but the execution was clumsy. I think it was the writing.

    I stand corrected. Not never, cuz there was that one time. I'm sure there was some time before the New 52 as well.
