Reviews: The Flash 1x2, AoS 2x4, Arrow 3x2

Simon Stagg! Wonder if we'll see his daughter Sapphire and her boyfriend, Rex Mason (aka Metamorpho)? ;)

I understood why Barry told his adoptive father what he did. It must have been difficult to grow up in a household where the kind man raising you genuinely believed that your father was a murderer when you knew he wasn't. Still, Barry acknowledged Joe's importance in his life. Very nice moment, especially when Joe made a point of believing in him as the Flash and finally realizing his father's innocent.

Harrison Wells is pretty bloodthirsty!

Did Phil and May look gorgeous as the swanky couple or what? That silver dress of May's was divine! :) They dance divinely together, too. ;)

Something very sad about that funeral for Sara: at least the people she loved were there, but her parents haven't been told. Are they judging them too fragile to handle her death all over again? I hope that scene with Laurel holding Sara's leather jacket foreshadows her as the Canary someday.

Bittersweet seeing Tommy again, but Ollie came up with a clever plan to keep him alive and safe.

Poor Sara! Suffering all she did for five years, finally finding some peace and re-connecting with her family, all to suffer a quick death back in Star City.

I hope that Felicity does get involved with Ray. He did show an empathic side.

I'm enjoying all three of these this season as well as Gotham. I like Grant Gustin as Barry. He's charmingly enthusiastic about being a superhero and I like that he and the team are discussing the science behind his new powers.

Sara's death was really sad on Arrow. I knew it was coming at some point but I didn't expect it this soon and it was extra-sad that her and Laurel had this nice talk and then she gets killed right in front of her. I like the return of Thea as well and the introduction of Ted Grant in the newest episode (although he should be older but leave it to the CW to only cast attractive young people in virtually every role.)

Have you given up on Gotham? I admit, it's dark but I like some of the aspects of it. I like the scenes with young Bruce and Alfred. My main problem with it is the discrepancies in the timeline and the fact that since it's a prequel, you know most of the characters aren't really in any danger.

Falcone and Maroni are both still alive in Batman's time so despite all the talk of a gang war, we know they're not going to die. They probably would have been better off adapting "Gotham Central," than this. They already have a lot of the characters from that series appearing in here anyway like Montoya and her partner. Oh well. it's still fun to spot all the Easter eggs and foreshadowing.

That's a good description of Barry in this show. He actually wants to be a hero! How refreshing in this day and age! :)

Agree with you about Sara's death. What a shame it had to come so soon. The only good thing to come out of it is that Laurel will eventually become the Canary.

Yeah, not a big fan of Gotham. Too dark and twisted for my taste. I don't mind that once in awhile, but a weekly diet? I'll tune in occasionally during commercials on Monday Night Football but I don't see myself watching every week.
