So intense. The Multiverse expands on CW Seed. I cannot wait to see who else they have on the “Reichsman” team. Having Red Tornado in this dimension is an interesting choice. My only question is where is Uncle Sam, and Plastic Man? This will be a MUST Watch show.
Tonight’s season opener was a great ride and I feel like we have much to look forward to with this show. It had some low and many high moments on CBS, but we watched on. I really am excited about another light hearted show to watch during the week, along with the Flash.
Zoom. Who, on Earth-2, could Zoom be? While at work today I heard an interesting theory from one of my managers that began a very short trip to the identity of Zoom. My manager was in the ballpark but it just didn’t add up. Why would Zoom not just take Barry out, himself? What is the purpose of blackmailing other metas to do his dirty work? Obviously Barry can thwart his plans, whatever they may be.
Jay Garrick’s hat shows up in a teaser for the new season of THE FLASH. This has made the rounds on most of the sites, but I just had to repost the image. This fills me with both excitement and trepidation. I hope they do the heroes of Earth-2 justice. Perhaps even Justice Society…
So there I was, again, searching through random image on Google when I came up with the idea to do a post about the WORST attempts at live action Superhero shows ever. Well, I found several lists along with images and the world has enough negative posts about everything.
I decided to post a few images of, what I feel to be, the best executions of superhero(ish) characters to make it to the small screen. I won’t list (Green) Arrow, the Flash, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., or the bad-assness of Dare Devil, since they all go without saying that they are some of the best shows to date based on comic book material. So without further ado I bring you, in no particular order, my favorite heroes that can be found on television.
The Monster Squad was another favorite. Supernatural Superheroes.
Super Spies rank right up there as well. Wild, Wild West.
This fits the spirit of the superhero show.
Hayley Atwell in Agent Carter (2015)
Guy Williams as Zorro!
Man From Atlantis from 1977
Doctor Fate (Brent Stait) and Stargirl (Britt Irvin) Smallville Justice League episode
Rex Smith played Daredevil in the late 80’s. Recognise the suit?
The Power of Isis
Campy, yes, but still a fun show to enjoy OR make fun of.
Still a classic.
Ultraman! The show responsible for my ultra geekness!
Before Reeve there was Reeves.
Tarzan was always a favorite show of mine in the early 1970’s.
I still love this show.
Beastmaster was an okay show.
Xena. Nuff Said.
Justin Hartleys Green Arrow and Michael Shanks Hawkman Smallville Justice League episode
Tw of the best heroes ever, Mr. Tom Baker, the fourth Doctor and Liz Sladen as Sarah Jane Smith 🙂
Yes. This is going to be a great show. Trust me.
I don’t remember much about this show, except that it impressed me when I was in the sixth grade.
The Flash finale on the CW network hit ALL of the right buttons. This was the fledgling show’s opening swing and it hit home-run after home-run. Ever since Grant Gustin’s (@grantgust ) introduction as Barry Allen, on the Arrow, I’ve been excited about this show. It works. The inclusion of John Wesley Shipp (@JohnWesleyShipp), the original Flash from the 1990’s, as Barry’s father is one of many nods to the past. Not only the old show received the hat tip, the comics were heavily referenced. The Flash is a love letter to the character’s fan base and an open door with flashing welcome sign to those who know next to nothing about him.
You don’t have to watch each episode to enjoy them either. Unlike some shows, if you can keep up at any point then you are along for the fun ride. It has a very Babylon 5 vibe to the way the stories are set up and is quite possibly THE best live action show I’ve seen on TV… ever. This is coming from a Trekker/Trekkie and hardcore Marvel fan.
WB needs to see how this show is built and rethink their humorless dick policy for their theatrical releases. Barry doesn’t take everything to seriously. He cracks wise and a smile quite often.
If you want to be entertained at a fast pace, do yourself a favor and watch the first season of The Flash. Head over to read Rob Bricken’s take on io9:
