    I remember when the first Flash tv show first aired, I think it was way ahead of its time. I like the look of this one too. I haven't gotten into Arrow at all, but this has got me interested.

    I love Arrow and I've been looking forward to this since Barry was a guest on it. Looks great.

    Still not sold on the Barry casting, but I've been wrong before. Hope this is great, along w/Gotham & Constantine...

    Hmmm, looks interesting enough.

    I haven't seen Arrow before, but have heard talk of it on these forums. Hopefully the new Flash will be good.

    However, nothing will be better than this....

    Yeah, the suit is the modern take on "realism" in super hero wear: use a stiff, noisy, hot material for a costume instead of a material that allows for freedom of movement and stealth. Sorry, guys, but spandex is a lot more realistic and practical (you can always pad and armor up the most vulnerable areas). To this day, I still feel the costume from the first Flash TV show is one of, if not THE, best translations of a super-suit into live action.

    Aside from that, I've got some hopes for this. Arrow's first season left me cold, with a main character I didn't really like. The second season, though, was a complete turnaround; it's become a show I don't miss. If they can pull of the same mix of drama, super-heroics and character interaction in Flash, I'll likely be pleased. It does look like there might be a slightly lighter tone here, as the short preview we saw during the Arrow episode showed Flash seemingly having some genuine fun with his powers. I kind of hope that's the case, as I don't think the very dark tone of Arrow suits the character of Barry we've seen thus far.

    I got that from the trailer. It does look fun which is why I think I'll like this show much better than Arrow. Despite what modern comic retailers say, superheroes don't always have to be "grim and gritty."

    I stopped watching Arrow. Kinda boring IMO. Guess I was expecting Smallville. I will watch this though. Actually looks interesting and I can go in with lower expectations seeing as how it's spun off of Arrow.

    Me too. Not diggin the costume. Kind of looks loose, like its too big for him especially around his chest. I did like the trailer though and can't wait till the fall

    I am so stoked for this show! Yeah, I know I'm weak, but I am completely sold on this show. I love the 5 minute trailer and don't mind they showed the main parts of the first episode already. I love the Easter eggs like Reverse-Flash killing his mom, Vibe and Killer Frost are on "Team Flash", Weather Wizard, and the pure joy from Barry being Flash. And I do like the costume, I just wish it was a lighter shade of red. I can't wait to see a recurring Rougues Gallery and a more sci-fi type of story-telling than Arrow. I am looking more forward to this Flash show than any other show or movie coming out in the next couple of years!

    I caught the trailer during Arrow, and this looks like it'll be just as interesting.

    Smallville left a bad ' why did I waste ten years on this crap hoping it'd get good' taste in my mouth. I skipped arrow because of it. I will give this a chance...

    I hate grim and gritty... and tired of it. it's over used so much. What's so fun about watching a brooding, depressed super hero in a world where characters die, or get maimed and killed? yay realism. yawn ;o).
