Last night the world got it’s first legal taste of the new Arrow spin-off. We already reviewed The Flash pilot, which you can see here, so today we thought wed look at what the internet thought of the show.
#TheFlash pilot ep is SO GOOD!! can’t wait for more! @grantgust is amazing and the little Arrow/Flash moment was so cute it got me squealing

Gustin’s performance was solid, but we’ll have to see if we don’t get tired of his shit-eating grin over the course of several years of television.
Suffers from some CW and pilot-itis, but The Flash is a lot of fun & Gustin is perfect. Walks the line between cheese and earnestness well.

Yup, we’d have to agree. As CW pilots go, this one’s pretty decent but just like Arrow there are plenty of cheesy moments. But it’s a comic book show, that’s like being surprised at the cheese on a Big Mac!
Can’t wait to see the flash in the Justice league movie #The flash — Roger Mendenhall (@RogerMendenhall) October 8, 2014
Well tough – you’re gonna have to. Unfortunately even if The Flash will appear (which hasn’t been confirmed) it won’t be Grant Gustin’s flash from the DCTVU.
Well the flash was a pile of shit.

We always have to find a negative nancy. This one caught our eye because of how particularly well thought-out it is. In “Buddy Head’s” professional opinion, it was shit. Usually we’d speculate that he’s a Marvel fan boy but that does a disservice to Marvel fans everywhere, so instead we’ll just say that he’s a douchebag.
