    Last season they kinda made a big deal about season 3 being about Flashpoint. I wasn't expecting it to dominate the whole season...but they resolved it one episode.


Good

Maybe. All I know is Grant Gustin really liked the comics Flashpoint story and wanted it done on the show. And then it was done but in name only. To me, that speaks volumes and it says the showrunners weren't up to the task on creating their own Flashpoint based on the comics. They just wanted to do an episode to make Grant happy and move on. At least, that's the way I'm choosing to view things.






It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
