      AKA UNIVERSE Iris’s speed wasn’t even hers it was by pure happenstance that she got it so her keeping it was never going to happen as it belonged to Barry.

      Thomas Raines ok thx. But those are one of my favorite episode of season 4 cause we get to see flashpoint, and possibly getting a new female speedster was so exciting at the time

      AKA UNIVERSE Filler is something that doesn’t contribute to the overall plot and is usually never brought up again in any capacity, they’re pretty much side stories to make the episode count bigger.

      Thomas Raines what does filler episode mean? And yeah

    Pick any two characters
    Start conversation with a joke about how everything is so crazy
    Have one character start to get serious while the other slowly realize it's serious
    One character express their inner emotions
    Have one of them say some inspirational bs
    Have awkward pause
    Have a phone ring/ character come on the intercom/ any other coincidental noise occur breaking the tension, before the problem is resolved
    Repeat every single episode

    I don't think you have any right to say that Arrow season 6 was bad when you only watched 4 episodes of it. You can say that from what you've seen, season 6 is not a good season, but saying "oh the show got worst with season 6. I don't like this season" when you only watched 4 episodes....

    My take on what has failed in numerous Flash seasons.
    It seemed like they didn't know what to do with Walley West. I mean they would have a situation where having another speedster would be a godsend and Walley would be there and offer to help and they would shut him down hard for no reason.
    Then you have lazy plot devices like giving main villains the ability to fly with no explanation as to how or having them run away at normal human speed but of course, Barry somehow manages to lose them. Like huh?
    Then there's hilariously botching what should be an easy takedown of the main villain because of one easy to foresee and easily avoided mistake All of it just drawing out the season. Watching them make plans and be so certain that they will work but knowing that it won't because then what would they do for the rest of the season?
    The Flash intro is pretty much a meme at this point. "My name is Barry Allen and I'm (one of) the fastest people alive, to the outside world I'm an ordinary forensic scientist (when they actually ever bother to show that any more) but secretly with the help of my friends at Star Labs (where 99% of the show takes place) I fight crime (occasionally actually going after someone other than the big bad) and find other Meta-Humans like me. In the midst of fixing the last thing I managed to screw up I somehow managed to screw up something else and now even though there are other's fast enough to help fix the problem I won't call on them because reasons.
    I am the Flash.

    The show is just so damn frustrating to watch at times, lol, their powers are so inconsistent with how they are shown, I get that they are overpowered which makes it difficult but damn.

    The nuclear bomb episode was pretty cool, but the fact that they were made aware of the situation, and it took them *that* long to get there which gave them long enough to break into the container, arm the device, then walk out and smugly stand there, as opposed to "run guy to china and run back in the time it takes for a camera to rotate" was just frustrating to watch. And then in the finale, Barry and Ralph were standing there, Barry says "Oh, you just need to go through that portal down there", the keep talking, the bad guy walks in and they waste time fighting instead of just, oh, I don't know, running to the portal and going through?

    The show was just so frustrating at times, and it has been for the last couple of seasons. It had some good parts, but I do agree, maybe they did need to tell Barry to run a bit more, he seemed to forget he could do that at times.

  • The FirstBourne

    Why not try watching the 5th season? It’s being called the best season of the Flash in a long time, and it actually has emotional and funny moments every episode. It is kinda the first real engaging season for me. Also, I think the fact that you’re admitting you’re snobby by kinda joking about it kinda just shows there were definitely things that aren’t that bad if you decided to not treat not super funny jokes as if they were the end of the world.

  • The FirstBourne
    The FirstBourne Month ago

    Ok...Aside from her being a little more grating in S4, I don’t think she’s written so much like a CW character than she is as any superhero love interest but with a couple of their twists. Yes, we’ve had better love interests, but throughout the first two seasons, she was there for Barry when he most needed her and their chemistry did shine. If all she really struggles in as far as character writing goes is just how useful she is to the team, I don’t think she should be seen as that glaringly annoying. Also unlike other superhero love interests, she doesn’t get MJ’ed unlike...well, MJ. I don’t know if I’m too forgiving or not, but she isn’t manipulative, there is barely any scene that makes me think she’s actually emotionally manipulative, even by accident.

    How can you watch the flash but not arrow, yes arrow has a lot off nonsense but it is interesting changing nonsense with new characters and some characters going and coming. Thats actually entertaining. But the flash is always the same and returns to status quo. Arrow changes things and somewhat sticks to it for the most part. The only thing changing is that caityn somehow got agency.
    Yes arrow has more entertainment value than the flash, and is more fun.
