Question: With the passing of the legendary TV talents Robin Williams and James Garner, don't you think it would be remiss if the upcoming Emmys didn't do a clips tribute to both of them? Awards shows have an unfortunate habit of dedicating chunks of time to a theme or subject that either makes no sense or ends up really boring. But these two gentlemen, who broke character boundaries and were excellent actors outside their niche personas, deserve special recognition. I just hope the producers of that upcoming show have the smarts to do something special, outside of the "In Memoriam" roll call. Your thoughts? — Karen

Premise: Tales of comic-strip hero Barry Allen, a police scientist who accidentally gains super speed, and uses it to fight crime in Central City. The series wasn't exactly gone in a flash (it lasted a season), but its bright style and impressive special effects rated it a better run.
