      Also, Barry and IRIS had Twins. not ONE daughter. and it was WALLY'S daughter Iris West (Impulse II/ Kid Flash III)
      who was a Speedster. Not Barry and Iris' FYI: the daughter was named "Dawn Jae Allen" - another reason this show is crap.

      Ross McIntyre please review Arrow season 6 and 7 without having actually seen them because I wouldn't wish upon anyone to actually watch arrow season 6 and 7.

      Howdy What's next, you tell him to rot in hell? A more reasonable request would be "Ross McIntyre please review Arrow season 6 and 7 without having actually seen them because I wouldn't wish upon anyone to actually watch arrow season 6 and 7"

    Easy way to prove that Ralph isn't DuVoe: Ask him what the first 50 digits of pi are.(14159265358979323846264338327950288419716939937510)

  • Tortanus The MegaCarrier

    Wouldn't the sound manipulator that DuVoe controlled lose her accent because since DuVoe was controlling her, he'd use the accent(or lack there of) that he spoke with.

  • Tortanus The MegaCarrier

    My mousepad is the flash running. I always keep Barry's face covered because I'm scared that if I look into his eyes, I'll become 100x dumber(Barry is so stupid that he is literally the medusa of stupidity.)

    My biggest issue with the villain in this season was DeVoe's impossible means of knowing *everything* that was happening around him. His decisions were based upon statistical analyses, which produced probability models. He could then use the probability models to develop plans and contingency matrices to those plans. The problem is that with so many autonomous actors acting at once, the number of errors in his models would be astounding and would require continual gathering and processing of information. But where is he drawing all of this information from, using what techniques or equipment or technology, and how is he finding time to process the insane amount of information necessary to maintain and keep his models current. Nevermind that he would have to replicate this across the multitude of other earths.

    If you think it (season 3) was bad then why do you continue watching the show. Or why didn't you just stop watching it.

    I agree with everything but have to correct you, barry fresh from the speed force was latterly mumbling every event happening. Future and past. He was constantly giving hints to both the future and the past. As the new welsch also said after he was losing his intelligence.

  • lucky jay
    lucky jay 3 days ago +1

    the shittiest thing is how they make the flash weak as shit, like wtf devoe managed to have the reflex time of a god to capture barry charging at full speed. it really doesnt make sense how barry becomes much much worse at his power. and the writers do it on purpose because they seem unable to find another way to prolong the episode.

    25:04 hell yeah it's always been there. And although some people may get a little fired up about it, season 1 especially had it. I just recently got done watching the flash season 1 again and I've gotta say, I ONLY felt nostalgia. The story was literally 90% teen drama with the other 10% being Barry not doing shit but run. Now that I got to re-watch it all, I see that it isn't all that different except for the tone. Season 1 tone: funny (but only because it was fresh and everything else was either dark as hell or full on comedy) and depressing and overusing itself throughout the season. Season 2: now we have flash season 1: dark as hell version, but with slightly more cool effects. Season 3: well, still dark as hell. Thank God we actually did get HR as a character otherwise the entire season would've just been season 1 without Harrison wells (basically worse than arrow season 4). Then season 4: comedy with some weird darkness, but just remember to "not kill" the bad guy. Relating back to what I said at the start; Season 1 of flash had the WORST of over used plot points in its interior. Some examples: Barry complains for half the season about loving Iris but Eddie being a cock blocker, the other half saying he's the fastest man alive and then saying he needs more speed, speed mirage for the sense of confusion that is still lingering in the show today just in different forms, basically the plot hiding behind all these special villains we want to see more of (meaning that the plot was painstakingly cringe worthy, and just trying to give us this really interesting toy we've never seen before to distract us), Barry constantly using his mother's death to make each episode simply last long enough to make it feel somewhat fulfilling after the dust settles, Iris being an absolutely incompetent fuck-up of a character (I don't care about fans' feelings or emotions on this matter, it is and always has been a fact), dumbass secrets and lies that would never be real ways with using information (like Joe not telling any of the police force about what metahumans are and can do in order to save plenty of lives early on), the list goes on. The point is, all of the seasons of flash have literally been the EXACT same thing, just with different details/factors to make it a different story.

    When i was watching season 3 and 4 whenever iris popped up in scenes which was literally every episode I would skip that scene and it would be more than half the episode such a waste of time
    The better pull an arrow and make season 5 great
    My fav thing about season 5 so far is killer frost cause all the others are useless against Cacada (don't know if I spelt that right) cause she can actually use her powers against him. (Imagine they just kill everyone expept killer frost that would be funny)
    Plus I think the next flash video is... everything wrong with flash season 5 lol

    I always considered myself unable to hit a woman under any circumstances because that’s what my parents drilled into me. Iris made me question this ideology. Someone wrote the “We are the Flash” scene, a room full of people read it and no one thought that they should fire his ass. Really makes me lose faith in Hollywood.

  • Ty Fletcher

    A plus you didn't mention was how Barry's character was much better. Being arrogant but messing up is so much better than he's ever been before. That was very entertaining. A flaw you didn't mention was how the Thinker worked. Sure, he's a super genius. That doesn't mean he knows everything. That doesn't mean he understands everything. And his fatal flaw, the one that ended up being the reason he died was being incapable of thinking about emotions even though that would be a factor in any number of calculations he'd been shown making. Maybe it's a flaw of mine, but I hate with extreme prejudice the "super-genius" villains that exist in media. Their plans suck and are so complex that a single hitch should derail them entirely, but they have the miraculous ability to know what hitches will arise yet do nothing to address the root cause and only set their plans not to derail because of them. Every villain that says "All according to plan" has the most Rube Goldberg plan that they could possibly imagine.

    all these TV superhero shows...suck now,some from the start,but now they all suck and are stupid!like her becoming the leader overnight,she is a reporter!!!a waitress....thats it!!oh,and she is black,forgot that,but maybe thats why she is now in the lead?!?hmm....nope ,no way!cant be the reason!.............................................................just saying

    Just finished the show and you are right, the only thing you haven't mentioned is that Flash is super weak in this show. On one hand he can "Flashtime" - run for hours with nobody moving or atomic bomb exploding - on the other hand when he runs, he gets hit by Siren X for example, I mean he should use Flashtime every bloody time when nobody is moving and put the neutralizing cuffs on any villain ... or take a bloody knife and stab them (not to kill them) or whatever...but no, he .. THE FLASH .. gets hit every time and is on the ground .. that is so annoying.

    I actually liked season 4. My only thing is that Iris being a leader is stupid and there was too many plot points and nonsense teen drama. There was a lot of great episodes though. And you're crazy about Arrow. Arrow has been great the entire run. 3 and 4 were annoying though. 1,2,5,6, & 7 have been awesome aside from a couple irks. Also Elongated Man is by far one of the best characters of CW. He is just constantly hilarious. Amunet being all British was pretty annoying though

The sattelites that devoe needs, have to be able to reboot 1/5 of the worlds minds. from what i know, most sattelites we have today, cant do that. and also, i think that barry and team flash wanted to destroy more than one sattelite but werent able to.
