So maybe you’ve heard that my favorite superhero is going to have his own CW show?
Barry Allen, the alter ego of the lightning-fast Scarlet Speedster, will be introduced in the eighth, ninth and 20th episodes of Arrow‘s upcoming second season [...] Casting is now underway to find an actor to play the DC Comics hero in what will be an origin story similar to Oliver Queen/Arrow. The 20th episode will serve as the backdoor pilot for Flash.
Do you think I’m excited? Ask me if I’m excited.
No. I am not excited.
I hate Arrow. I realize this makes me one of like 3 people in the entire country, but I also dislike Sherlock so I’m used to being in the media minority. But I found the first episode of Arrow barely watchable. I stuck it out for like one or two more episodes, I don’t really remember, before bailing. Life’s too short.
And now the same team is making a show about the Flash. Nope, not excited.
I’ll probably try to watch the Arrow episodes that introduce the Flash, to see if there’s any hope. I’m not optimistic.
Luckily I will always have Justice League and Justice League Unlimited.
