New Season Reviews: The Flash, Town of the Living Dead

Grant Gustin, Candice Patton

"Awesome," says the Flash (aka Barry Allen, an adork-able CSI lab nerd), catching his breath after his first mad dash through Central City in fast-forward motion, giving new meaning to happy feet. "Woo-hoo!" he screams during his first supervised test run. "Cool," he reflects later upon his gift of speed, a sentiment echoed by his crime-fighting mentor Arrow, from whose show he is triumphantly spinning off. Couldn't agree more.

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

OK, first off, to all of you who chimed in last week. I just assumed we all accepted Dynasty’s Alexis Carrington as the #1 bitch of all time. That sort of stuff should just be understood from here on out. It’s like, who is the #1 villain? JR Ewing. No-brainer. But this week, I offer you a real challenge. With the sort-of-unexpected monster hit-dom of “Iron Man” in the theatres and this week’s DVD release of the TV movies The Incredible Hulk Returns/The Trial of the Incredible Hulk, I thought it would be fun to get all you fanboys and girls to weigh in on your favorite TV superheroes. I’m gonna throw some of my top picks out there (all available on DVD, natch), then I want ya’ll to give me yours, aiight? Smallville — Young Superman. The DVD sets that literally kept me from going insane during my doctor-ordered bedrest from two herniated discs. Seven seasons of Tom Welling, Michael Rosenbaum and a bunch of DC Comics cameos. Season Six is the bes... read more

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.
