Flash and Glider

Some time ago, I kinda panned several comic books for selfish and silly reasons.  With regards to The Flash, I called the first book generic.  I called the Flash boring.  I called out the lack of growth…Truth be told, I had not finished the book by the time I had wrote the article.  I had only read about half where it focused on Barry’s relationship with his self cloning friend.  It wasn’t a fair enough shot.  By the end of the second half, the book really picked up and I was compelled to buy the second volume.  And after that, let’s just say I get why The Flash is such an amazing character with many levels complexity.  Not just in the character, but a nice insight into why Flash’s mythology is heralded as much more than ‘running fast’.  Especially for someone who doesn’t know much about The Flash.

Flash title

So The Flash pilot leaked and the internet is exploding with all sorts of hype and freak outs.  I was able to watch it and I have to say that I was absolutely floored with how good it was.  Yes, it’s true that pilots are normally a lot stronger than the rest of the season due to it’s sole purpose of getting the series picked up and yes, one could worry about the drop in investment on quality writing and special effects in the rest of the episodes, and yes…yadda yadda yadda yadda.  As I watched the Flash, I realized that despite even considering about worrying about all of these potential drop offs, this episode had so much fun, action, comedy, and set up all in one episode, it legitimately gives me hope that the creators of the Flash will be taking smart notes from Arrow’s book in continuing to create a full season’s worth of quality episodes.  So here’s a break down of what I thought about the Flash pilot below.
