90′s Flash Actor to Play Barry Allen’s Father on CW’s New Flash Series?

Screen Shot 2014-05-17 at 7.18.24 PM

A 5-minute trailer for CW’s Flash series – spawned from the successful of Arrow – was released a few days ago. It was met with much rejoice. The way the Flash looked (red suit and identifiable lighting bolts on chest and ears) and moved (signature red blur and tremble), as well as his personality has left little for fan-boys to argue about. It seems most everyone is genuinely excited for this show. If Arrow is any indication of what DC and the CW can do in terms of bringing iconic heroes to the television screen, then The Flash should do pretty well. It certainly looks like it’s gonna be rad. 

OK, so, for you fans that didn’t get to enjoy the grandeur of the 90′s, and for those that do remember it fondly, there was a Flash live-action series that starred John Wesley Shipp and a post Star Wars/pre-Joker Mark Hamill.  It was campy as hell, but it was good enough being that super hero TV shows weren’t really the IN thing back in those days.  Anyways, it was announced that, as homage to the original 90s show, Shipp would have a mystery but recurring role on CWs revised Flash series. Many have speculated on what that role might be, but if you saw the 5-minute trailer you got a glimpse of Ship. And it’s fairly clear who he is.  (more…)

As a whole, Arrowhas grown by leaps and bounds since its first season. The series has come to rely less on annoying “villain of the week” devices in favor of a stronger season-long arc and has surrounded its hero with a diverse and interesting cast of friends and foes. Last night’s season finale, “Unthinkable“, needed to send Season 2 out on a bang. Which it did, thanks to a solid season’s worth of build up. (more…)

RECAP/REVIEW: ‘Arrow’ – S02E22 – “Streets of Fire”

- 05-08-14Comics, Featured, reviews, TV Posted by Sarah Moran

Starling City is in utter anarchy. The city is swimming in chaos as Mirakuru-enhanced madmen flood the streets destroying and murdering just about everything in their path. Circumstances are dire, and typically such an over-the-top premise of the city collapsing around our heroes is an all too often overused season finale device. Hell! Arrowused the same premise last season! But in Season 2 they’ve earned it, properly setting up and selling this city under siege. (more…)

Ever since Arrow capped off its Season 1 finale with the unexpected and tragic death of Tommy Merlyn, the series hasn’t let up. In a way, tragedy has become the name of the game, because no one ever became a broodingly heroic savior without losing a few of those closest to them. [SPOILERS]
