NBC’s Constantine – Geek Girl Navigating the World

19 November 2014 3:16 PM, PST | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

The track record of TV series produced from comic books is spotty at best. For every show that was as weird and cool as “The Maxx” you’ve got at least three that were every bit as cheesy and muddled as “The Flash” (which starred John Wesley Shipp). I’m not trying to claim that “The Maxx” was ever wholly coherent, but if you’ve read the series or are reading the reprint series, then you know that when it comes to adaptations of material, watching “The Maxx” is a whole lot like reading it. I’m also not saying that I didn’t like “The Flash” when it aired in 1990. I’ve got both shows on DVD and have no regrets about owning either one.

NBC has become the latest network to try making a comic book series into television with “Constantine.” John Constantine first appeared in “Swamp Thing »

John Ostrander: So How Was It For You?

2 November 2014 5:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

We’re now well into the new TV season and there were a number on new shows to which I was looking forward as well as some returning ones. I’ve now seen at least one of each and have formed some opinions. Since that’s what this column is all about, off we go.

On the returning shows, let’s start with The Blacklist. I was wondering if it could maintain momentum but so far it has, anchored by James Spader’s mesmerizing performance as Raymond “Red” Reddington. Terrifically charming, utterly lethal, ready with a quip, a story, or a bullet, Spader gives a wonderful performance.

I also wondered about Castle and the “cliffhanger” with which they left last season. They aren’t explaining things right away, making what happened part of the overall mystery for this season. It’s working. It feels as if there’s new steam »

The Flash Recap: The 'Chosen' One

21 October 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

This week on The CW’s The Flash, the latest adversary was a real gas, flashbacks revealed how Caitlin’s fiance was felled on a stormy night, The Old Flash “met” the new one and we learned a shocking truth about how Barry landed on the fast track.

Whereas last week I took issue with the kiddie-centric flashbacks, this time around I couldn’t get enough of the particle accelerator backstory. In fact, it almost had me wishing the series had picked up with events a day or two prior, though I suspect the sum total of flashbacks still to »

Review: 'The Flash' - 'Things You Can't Outrun'

21 October 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "The Flash" — which the CW just gave a full-season order to — coming up just as soon as my chest feels like that one time I had a cigarette... If the goal of last week's episode was to emphasize the fun and empowering parts of being the Flash (or being on his support team), "Things You Can't Outrun" leaned on the heavier end of the show's emotional spectrum, dealing with the helplessness Barry feels about his father, the grief Caitlin and (to a lesser extent) Cisco feel about Ronnie, and the overall burden of having responsibility for who lives and who dies in a city rapidly filling with super criminals. With these first three episodes as an admittedly small sample, I would say the strengths of "The Flash" trend more towards the fun than the angst — that's what "Arrow" is for — but I also recognize the danger »

'Flash' Star Robbie Amell Shares First Firestorm Details

20 October 2014 9:30 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fans of The Flash will get their first look at Ronnie Raymond (Robbie Amell) in tomorrow night's episode "Things You Can't Outrun". The character is one half of Firestorm, with Dr. Martin Stein (Victor Garber) portraying the other half. Before fans are introduced to Ronnie, Robbie Amell offers the first details about his character in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

Firestorm isn't as big a name in the DC comic book universe. Amell reveals that he wasn't too familiar with the character before he landed the role.

"I knew of him and I knew a little, but I hadn't been a huge Firestorm fan. But I'm actually kind of glad that it happened that way because I got to be introduced to a new superhero. I got a care package from DC with a couple comics and a couple action figures. My mom went out to a comic book »

Mindy Newell: Ho-Hum Heroics

20 October 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Im-not-so-ho, the best thing about The Flash is Jesse L. Martin as Detective Joe West and John Wesley Shipp as Barry’s father. Im-not-so-ho, the best things about Gotham are Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock, Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth, and Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald “Penguin” Cobblepot. Im-not-so-ho, the best things about Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. are Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson and Ming Na-Wen as Melinda May.

What does that say about me?

Am I getting old? Am I no longer able to appreciate a pretty-boy face or a hot young thang? Am I just being nostalgic in my appreciation of Martin, who originated the part of Tony in Rent on Broadway and played Detective Ed Green (opposite the brilliant and missed Jerry Orbach as Detective Lennie Brisco) on Law & Order, which I still regularly watch in reruns, and Ming Na-Wen, who played Dr. Jing-Mei “Deb” Chen on E.R., »

The Flash is a hit and has an exciting season ahead. The CW has released banner art that shows The Flash (Grant Gustin) speeding away from an explosion. They have also released photos for the third episode ahead of the airing of the second. I'm guessing they really don't want ratings to drop on the second one.

'Flash' Casts Andy Mientus as the Pied Piper

9 October 2014 2:56 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just hours after Victor Garber signed on to play Dr. Martin Stein in The CW's The Flash, the show has also added Andy Mientus as Harley Rathaway, a.k.a. The Pied Piper.

We first reported on The Pied Piper's involvement in the show last month, who is one of the original members of the Rogues. That supervillain group is formed by Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller), who will be introduced in the show's fourth episode, "Going Rogue" on October 28. As for The Pied Piper, he will appear in the show's 11th and 12th episodes this season.

In the show, Harley Rathaway is a true genius who used to work at S.T.A.R. Labs until he had a falling out with Tom Cavanagh's Harrison Wells. The particle accelerator explosion that turned Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) into the show's title character also robbed Harley of his hearing. He »

Dennis O’Neil: Flash Back!

9 October 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

You’ve already seen it, you slathery blagger, but from this side of the time divide it’s an experience yet to be had. I refer, of course, to the debut latest television version of DC Comics’ venerable superhero, the Flash.

(Digression: I never know whether the “the” is the Flash should be capitalized. Seems to me it should because although it’s usually a garden variety article, in this usage it is also part of the guy’s name and so a proper noun and thus meriting capitalization. But a DC editor insisted that its lower case and I guess he should know.)

I said that what will be playing on the CW tomorrow night is “the latest” video Flash and that might puzzle those of you who have entered the universe recently we’ll provide a bit of explanation (and perhaps bore those of you not so new to the universe. »
