RevCast: from
Commentary, criticism and comedy about movies, TV and all corners of geeky genres and culture. A sci-fi convention in your pocket.

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.
