The fall TV season has started, including the new DC show on the CW, spinning off from "Arrow" we have The Flash! And it hit us, pardon the expression, like a bolt of lightening! We enjoyed it so much that RevNews host Gary Mitchel had to gather together a batch of Flash Fans to discuss the pilot episode!

Joining Gary are Nathan Laws , Mark Finn and new RevNewsian Michael Bailey! Listen in as they talk all about the previous DC TV shows (and how Smallville was like X-Files: 90210); DC's GrimDark history and how the Flash is counter-programming to "Arrow"; the escalation of superpowers and what audiences will accept; the panel's pleading for Grodd; Gary's insistence on calling the West family the Allen family; their love of Jesse Martin; the seemingly contractual "CW Moments"; their thoughts on the 90's series; Gary's head either imploding or exploding over the end scene; the flowing of Mantears; a sing-a-long of the Metamorpho theme and cries of "It's awesome and on my phone!"; and why the Flash should never be flocked.


Our theme music this episode is "20 Minutes of Oxygen" by Darkest of the Hillside Thickets courtesy of Divine Industries.Inc.
