For weeks I was avoiding The Flash, until a reader told us Candice Patton was starring as Iris West, a passionate, ballsy blogger and the implied love interest of the titular hero (implied as in, "will be eventually"). And since said hero is a lanky, adorkable nerd with a seriously deep (and currently unrequited) crush on Iris, I figured...what the hell?
Finally...a BW/WM pairing that I can get behind. Do you know how rarely that happens?
It's actually a very entertaining show, even when the eps that aren't so great sometimes (how weird is that?). I credit the casting; there are some seriously awesome actors on this show. Also, it's based on a comic book and when handled correctly, they are the best source material. They tend to stick to the classics/basics: Shy Geek Loves Girl...but can't tell her (for whatever reason). Geek then has an accident which makes him Super-Geek. Geek loves Girl but still doesn't tell her that he's now Super-Geek.
Geek accidentally triggers steamy romantic moments while romancing Girl in Super-Geek mode*.
Gets us every time.
I have nominated Cin to do her BGNO. *meaningfully looks at Cin*
*Don't ask me how come Girl never seems to notice right off the bat the Geek is also Super-Geek. *shakes head*
