First off- The Flash... CW did it right from the very start- I didn't really like Grant Gustin when I first saw him on Arrow, but on the pilot of his own show, he shone. He brought all the optimism and hope to the character that Arrow was lacking for Oliver Queen. now don't get me wrong- I like Arrow, very much, but he's being played much more Batman than Green Arrow.
Anyway... the Flash Episode titled "Tricksters" was I think my favorite of the season. In the original Flash TV series back in the 1990's (heavily influenced by Tim Burton's Batman) Mark Hamill played the Trickster. the new series gives more than a few nods to the old one, and this episode was no exception, and DID NOT DISAPPOINT.
Mark Hamill may play a bland-ish hero on screen (yes, Luke, I mean that) but as a villain....OH-HO-HO-WOW! He left little scenery unchewed, and (spoiler) the great dramatic reveal to the younger Trickster(I AM YOUR FATHER) must have tasted sweet, echoing as it did his own career(endspoiler). If you have not watched this episode... you will love it. I personally guarantee it or your hour back.
The Other Show is IZombie. I started this one a little skeptical. figured it was a combination CSI/Autopsy show with a supernatural/zombie twist. And it is. And it is fun. The writing is tight and pop-culture referential, which has been pure win for all the seasons of Supernatural. My favorite Character on the show at this point is Clive Babinaux, followed closely by Dr Ravi.
the title of this post comes from this very moment in The Flash, Tricksters
