The Flash
Air Date: Tuesday, October 14, 2014
Time Slot: 8:00 PM-9:00 PM EST on The CW
Episode Title: (#102) "Fastest Man Alive"

"Fastest Man Alive"


BARRY HAS FUN WITH HIS NEW POWERS BUT A SETBACK MAKES HIM QUESTION HIS ABILITY TO BE A HERO - Barry (Grant Gustin) escorts Iris (Candice Patton) to a university gathering honoring scientist Simon Stagg (guest star William Sadler). When six gunmen storm the event, Barry changes into The Flash and tries to stop them. While he does save a man's life, he passes out before he can capture the robbers, which frustrates him. As Dr. Wells (Tom Cavanagh), Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) and Cisco (Carlos Valdes) scramble to find out what's wrong with Barry, Joe (Jesse Martin) comes down hard on Barry for taking the law into his own hands and risking his life. Barry realizes that it wasn't six gunmen but a metahuman named Danton Black (guest star Michael Christopher Smith), who can make multiples of himself. Meanwhile, Iris becomes even more intrigued by the "red streak."

David Nutter directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti & Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Andrew Kreisberg & Geoff Johns (#102).

yeah thats him, he was the colonel in the die hard 2 movie, that is where I first noticed him.
they killed him off in this show, so thats it for him in flash.

Saw ep 2 , pretty good, and I liked the ending , so this guy is bad and good, and he wants to protect the flash.
I liked that flash and his step dad will now work together, and he ok's barry to be the flash and fight crime.

In some shows they would drag that out.

Now they just need to let Daniele dress normally for a lab geek , instead of the dress.

This show is much better than gotham.

I don't mind them not dragging out Barry and Joe, it would have felt too much like Arrow with the vigilante storyline. The Flash is a hero and I like how they portray that. Yes better than Gotham, but they really are two different kinds of shows, Gotham is just a police drama with comic characters sprinkled in, Flash is a comic book show

Well not really , it is a comic book show that right now centers on jim gordon.
Penquin has been in every ep so not a sprinkling of him.

Did you ever read batman year one mini series by frank miller?

i BOUGHT THAT BACK WHEN IT CAME OUT IN 80'S i THINK ......CAPS!! and I still have them I think.
it was good, been awhile since I read it, but that would be a good batman movie.

The flash ratings
NBC The Voice 3.3/11 11.89
CBS NCIS 2.5/8 17.09
CW The Flash 1.6/5 4.12
ABC Selfie 1.0/3 3.52
FOX The Simpsons - R 0.8/3 1.97

Flash beat fox and abc shows, and CW came in 3rd place again instead of 5th !
demo dropped 3 10ths, but still over 4 mil.
it needs to hold those numbers to be a big hit.
SN did a 1.0 and 2.2 mil so CW had 6.3 mil for the 2 hours which is good for CW.
They should order 22 or more if they haven't already.
not sure how many eps they ordered of thiss

Honestly they just need to dump the ratings system, it's outdated and doesn't give a true report

I'm still kind of surprised about myself, but I have to say I really like The Flash so far a lot.
Ep 1x02 was pretty good again. Barry's two tech guys, Caitlin and Cisco, are cool too. But you are right, T5000, Caitlin feels a bit "overdressed". Hm, wait, couldn't we say the same for Felicity? Wink

The Nielsen rating system does not judge quality, it is for advertisers who pay to put the shows on.
They monitor people who have the money to buys new cars and all the other crap they sell on tv.
They want to know what that group is watching, they dont care what everyone is watching, just the groups they want to sell to.
Alot is to women 18-34, which is the prime demo #

It isnt fair, but it is how networks make money and pay to make or buy the shows.
If a show get the low ratings it isnt making money so bye bye no matter how good the show is or how many people are really watching it.
Same for a bad show, if it gets the ratings it will be on a long time.

Yes she is, and it is stupid too, she should dress normal or jeans etc, and occasionally get dolled up.

But with Dvr's and streaming it makes the system obsolete, plus they only get a sample of what people are watching and then they project the outcomes, they need a better system that really factors in what people are watching, not just a small percentage

Well they dont do it for us, they do it for business purposes.
Right now and in past the advertisers believe this system is ok, and as long as they are ok with it,
nothing will ever change.

Advertisers dont really like people who record shows and watch later, as they feel you FF thru or skip their ads.

Even pay channels like hbo or showtime dont really try to find out what all their viewers are watching, and now they and others are looking at social sites like facebook and twitter to see
which shows are hot on those sites, which is inaccurate too.

Many people think all tv's are monitored magically and they know what your watching lol.

Nielsen gives them all sorts of layered data , that may be not right, and estimated, but it is the
type of data the advertisers like.

So the problem is the companys who advertise are run by idiots who believe the Nielsen data.
until that changes it will stay as it is.

It is a lot like political polls where they ask a few people who they are voting for , and then
on the news they report ( a estimate) that 55% of americans are voting for obama etc.
People believe it.

When they say 29 million people saw the super bowl, all they really know is a certain % of the few people they monitor saw it. but everyone believes the 29 million.
And Networks love that as they sell the ads for a million $ per second or some crap.

If they actually knew and it was only 15 million then that would be a bummer for the networks, so they might not really want to know the real figures.
could be 50 million too though.

Still, it seems they could come up with a better, more accurate system, the Nielson system served it's purpose, now try to find a better system. And you are right, some people do think the are monitored, and if the did try to monitor everyone's TV, people would be up in arms about privacy invasions.

Well like I said they may not want one that is accurate, the real numbers might not be as good as the estimated numbers.
And they want to know not just that someone is watching, but their age,sex, income,race, and other details.
hard to get all that without detailed monitoring like neilsen, which can only be done small scale.
