So the premiere is tomorrow. I've already seen it online a few months ago and was impressed. Looks like DC knows what it's doing on the small screen.

Thoughts?  8)

Really liked the premiere. Flash costume looks a lot better on television than i thought it would from the pictures. And Iris is smoking hot. Ill be watching every week.

I liked the fact he (mostly) does away with his secret identity straight off the bat. No hiding from key characters, which would have felt too Smallville or Arrow to me. It's nice to have something different.

Yeah they really did. Premiere was really well done. I was definitely pessimistic going into it.

I wonder who Harrison Wells really is.

H. G. Wells homage so probably Prof Zoom, who's also a time traveler.

I thought it was Dt Thawne who would eventually become Zoom, or maybe already is. Come back in time, start banging Barry's future wife before he has a chance with her? Sounds right up Zoom's alley.

Yeah I was thinking Zoom. Perhaps Hawthorne will be setup as a second Zoom when the first one dies (LOL, SPOILER?!0009?)

OR
a toned down Abra Kadabra, without using that name.

Eddie Tawne is likely a red-herring and merely an ancestor to Eobard Thawne, aka Prof Zoom. Also, Wells is in a wheelchair, much like Hunter Zolomon (Zoom) wqas.

It's really too bad this show and Arrow weren't on the same time as Smallville was. Would have made for a sick shared universe to use for crossovers.

I thought the spin around and counteract the tornado thing was a little hokey. After it failed the first time I was hoping he would just power through it and punch him in the face.

Overall I liked it though.
