You didn't like the rugged look and floppy hair this time?

I had the same reaction. I eventually realised that at least part of it was predating the Arrow scenes.First comes the confusion.
Set in present time I'm watching Barry Allen at work while thinking about the last time I saw him on ARROW. He had been hit by lightning so I couldn't figure out what was happening, then it started to make sense as I realised I wasn't in present time, or maybe I was and the jump to nine months later is part of the process.
Again, the comparison to Smallville, especially the idea that there were other victims of the same phenomenon, also occurred to me fairly early on.This kinda reminds me of SMALLVILLE in that there's many bright colours as well as having the possibility of freaky people with powers, all coming from an experiment from Dr. Wells.
That's my main gripe with all these shows - that they surround themselves with a team of assistants and advisors. Traditionally, superheroes were loners, interacting with their friends only via their secret identities.I prefer the heroes identity to stay hidden,
Agreed. I smiled when I saw Barry on the road to Starling.I really enjoyed the surprise of seeing Oliver turn up, his name wasn't in the opening credits and that gave it a better impact.
I actually watched the original Flash series way back when. I understand another well-known cast member also appears in later episodes. I'm looking forward to seeing that play out.Did you recognize his father?
I like Miller's intensity and his relationship with Barry. Purcell is stunt casting but it pays off if you've seen them together on PB.I was far too excited when I saw Wentworth Miller & Dominic Purcell in an episode together, but I think that excitement ultimately lead me to disliking the episode, it felt a little too forced and did they deliberately make Miller's character like his one on Prison Break?
Future Flash waved him off for some reason that our Barry seemed to understand but it wasn't clear to me.The season finale was outstanding, I was all emotional when he watched his mother getting stabbed and then when he started talking to her I thought I was going to burst into tears, but so much happened that there wasn't time.
I realised what Eddie was going to do just seconds before he did it and yet still couldn't quite believe I'd really seen it.Eddie killing himself was off the chart!!
It really does and in some fantasy way, I stopped thinking about the PB link with these two.Purcell is stunt casting but it pays off if you've seen them together on PB.
It does become clearer as the story continues.Future Flash waved him off for some reason that our Barry seemed to understand but it wasn't clear to me.
I didn't care too much about him when he first came into the story and then I started to realise that I did really like him, only it was too late.I realised what Eddie was going to do just seconds before he did it and yet still couldn't quite believe I'd really seen it.
