Excuse me while I super hero “geek out” – The Flash (Grant Gustin) and Arrow (Stephen Amell) come together to battle evil in an epic two-part crossover. Starts tonight at 8 p.m. Tuesday.
Regular Randy Report readers know since I was a kid I’ve enjoyed the “super-hero” genre of TV and movies. So, I’m uber-sad to see one of my favorite “geek night” TV shows THE TOMORROW PEOPLE get cancelled. But where a door closes, a window opens…
This fall, the CW will give us THE FLASH starring Grant Gustin of GLEE. Cool effects here, although the “story-telling” gets a bit choppy for a trailer.
From the YouTube description:
After a particle accelerator causes a freak storm, CSI Investigator Barry Allen is struck by lightning and falls into a coma.
Months later he awakens with the power of super speed, granting him the ability to move through Central City like an unseen guardian angel.
Though initially excited by his newfound powers, Barry is shocked to discover he is not the only “meta-human” who was created in the wake of the accelerator explosion — and not everyone is using their new powers for good.
Barry partners with S.T.A.R. Labs and dedicates his life to protect the innocent.
For now, only a few close friends and associates know that Barry is literally the fastest man alive, but it won’t be long before the world learns what Barry Allen has become… The Flash.
New paranormal show on the CW loosely based on the 1970s TV series.
I’m usually a sucker for these shows. If it’s done half-way well I’ll follow it. If not, they’ll just get me for the pilot. We shall see.
Starts tonight on the CW.
