That was “The Flash”

Where crossing dimensions was so casual that Central City PD arrest forms have on them for address:
“Earth Number _____”

I tried all the CW DC shows…haven’t liked any of them, but I will allow they all generally look good (I’ve just not liked the writing/stories).

This follows the same formula I’ve seen, it looks great…hope they do it justice.

Well, casual dimension hopping got its start in the Flash comics, so that checks out.

That’s pretty casual.

Since his name has already come up, they did the red wig thing in the Adam West series. Kinda amusing if that’s what’s happening now.

Hurray, a Ramones t-shirt at 0:56 (and onwards). Whole thing looks great!

Apparently that’s exactly what happened in the comic book in 2009. So the show is consistent with a decade of canon in that regard

“Infinite” has similar issues.

It’s settled: Casual Get-Together on a Large but Tractable Number of Earths

I like how Barry Allen is like “…bitch, did you just reveal my secret identity in public??

Jay’s pretty chill and not looking resentful at all that he’s been brought in to train a replacement.

It’s all cool with him, either way.


Actually that hands-on-hip pissiness is pretty much exactly what the actor on the TV show is doing 85% of the time.

I’ve watched a few episodes of these new DC shows, and – well, maybe I’m just too old – but they all kind of feel like classic teen romance shows: Dawson’s Creek with some superpowers tacked on. I’m surprised enough people watch TV to keep so many of the series afloat.

Just asking, is this the first LBGTQ superhero in a lead role on television? Or any media?

They all morph into family/relationship shows with inexplicable superhero action sequences.

Oh, and the technology and science abuse is hilarious.

TV budgets have a way of doing that for live-action superhero shows. Even George Reeves seemed to spend most of his screen time as Clark Kent.

I think it’s a similar audience.

I don’t remember any episodes consisting largely of him mooning over Lois Lane.

Maybe a little mooning over

Interestingly, the final episode of Batman: The Brave and the Bold had a fourth-wall-breaking Bat-Mite story which ended with the cartoon getting cancelled and replaced with a new Batwoman series (or maybe Batgirl? I forget). Bat-Mite was voiced by Paul Reubens, which felt like a good choice.
